Nateby Primary School.
A quiet village school......?
We don't think so!
Welcome to our new children especially those in reception who have just started 'big school' this week!
THE NATEBY ETHOS|
What do we believe is the purpose of education? What is the purpose of a school? What is it that underpins all that we do in our school?
At Nateby Primary School we believe that every child is unique. That they are entitled to an education which excites, supports and challenges them. That children flourish when they feel safe enough to take risks and to be themselves.
Learning is fun!|
We are very proud of our 'outstanding' school. Our staff, volunteers and the community work hard to provide an exciting and relevant curriculum. We feel we are all teaching to our strengths inviting specialists in to school to enhance the curriculum: we offer a weekly specialist music lesson to all junior pupils - this year the whole of the juniors will be learning to play the keyboard. All junior children have one and half terms of swimming every year (at Garstang YMCA swimming pool) across the whole of the juniors. Read on to discover more about Nateby Primary School.
Anyone for Mud Pie?|
The children in Class One returned to school to find a Mud Kitchen in their outdoor area. The children were soon concocting all kinds of tasty treats from leaf soup to mud pies and leaf and twig stew!! Mmmmm delicious!
We were very pleased to be able to accept a defibrillator from The Adam's Appeal. Two members of our community - Mr Coggin and Mr Collinson had raised money for the appeal by cycling around the country and had asked for a defibrillator to be placed here at Nateby School. Members of our community, children and staff were invited to take part in training so that we all know what to do if we are ever called upon.
We match our learning objectives to termly themes in the juniors (the infants join in too).
This academic year our themes are: 'Wheels, Weapons and Warfare'; 'Where we live' and 'Inventions'.
Last year our themes were 'Castles, Crowns and Conquerors', Mountains, Myths and Monsters' and 'Planet Earth: Status Critical'. The photos above show some of the activities we took part in to make the themes 'come alive'- we even had a visit from Sir Edmund Hillary (yes we do know he's dead!)
Sign To Sing|
We have been learning sign language with the help of one of our fantastic teaching assistant- Mrs Ryan. Here we are joining in with a World Record attempt to have the most people signing simultaneously in 2013 and 2014.
