Welcome to 

Shelly Woods Class 

Athletics Competition

Look how smart we look in our new PE kits!  What a fabulous day!

Can you learn resilience? 


Our focus for this week is resilience. We did some activities and discussed whether a person is born with resilience or if it can be learnt. We looked at famous sports people and times they have shown resilience in their career. Our session finished with a game, designed to encourage resilient strategies. 

Young Writers Competition 

Here are our wonderful winners of the Young Writers Competition we entered in 2022.  A Twist in the Tale and Through the Magic Door.  Well done - we are so proud of you!  Watch out for the next one!

LEGO Builders Workshop - Science Circuits

We LOVED our morning with the LEGO builders workshop - we built a LEGO city, made circuits and lit it all up!  We even made the train move forwards and backwards!

Creepy Crawly Roadshow 2023

We loved our session with the creepy crawly roadshow!  We learnt about different creatures and then did a question and answer.  Some of us were lucky enough to have a snake around our neck!

Blackpool Gazette

In the Autumn term, some children attended a science project at Blackpool Football club.  We have just received news that the day has received a write up in the gazette.  Well done!  You can find the link below. 

WWII Homework Projects

We have showcased our projects to the class and they are now on display near the hall for the whole school to see!

The joy of giving


The true meaning of Christmas has been deeply felt in our class this morning. To start our day, the children enjoyed a magical graze breakfast. They sat together and shared an abundance of delicious treats and nibbles. We then opened our much awaited Secret Santa gifts. It was a truly beautiful moment. Many of the children were overjoyed to see the gifts they had chosen being so well received, before even opening their own gift. The smiles on their faces said it all, there is nothing like the joy of giving.   

FTFC Charity Mission 

We are proud to support Fleetwood Town in their mission to make 500-1000 food hampers for our community this Christmas.  We hope we can make a slight difference in transforming someone's Christmas. 

Christmas lunch


It was our Key Stage 2 Christmas lunch today. It was a lovely, merry occasion - full of festive cheer! Thank-you to Mrs Ashworth and Mrs Ward for making it so special for the children. 

Swimming success! 


The children are making great progress with their swimming, another batch of certificates have been awarded. 

Fleetwood Town - Mental Health

Our session today was about giving back to each other and the community.  We spoke about how good it feels to be nice to other people and to say kind words.  We also talked about how we are going to support Fleetwood Town with their charity mission giving back to our Fleetwood community during the Christmas period.

School of Justice - A Courtroom Visit

To ink with our RE Justice topic and British Values in school, we were lucky enough to visit the mock courtroom at UCLAN.  The children got to dress up and perform a courtroom role play.  We had lots of fun!

Nathan Parker

We were fortunate enough to work with Nathan Parker all day today.  He is a spoken poet and worked closely with us to create our own poems.  He spoke to us about the features of poetry, confidence, spoken word, rhymes and performance.  He also read some of his own work to us!  Safe to say, we were inspired!  Check him out on Instagram!

Is there anybody out there? 


Today was a unique and interesting day for our children. The Planeterium was in school and each class enjoyed a session, in which they learnt all about the delights of the solar system. It was a fabulous experience for our children, both fun and informative. It was mesmerising and the children were enthralled!
