Rivers Award - Trout Release in Barrow Brook 


As part of our Rivers topic, the children have been caring for 100 trout eggs. On Monday, we released the trout in Barrow Brook. Our school council, then sampled some water and wildlife to assess how clean the Barrow Brook water is. 


We have thoroughly enjoyed this project as we work towards achieving the 'Ribble River Award'. Swim free little trout.

World Ocean Day 

We have had some wonderful entries for our plastic in the ocean art project and are waiting to see if we have won the SEALIFE competition we entered. As part of World Ocean Day, we have created a display in the school entrance that we would like to invite you to see. One question we are thinking about this week is; How can we reduce our plastic use in school?
