Broadmead Day Care centre

On Thursday, the school choir went to perform at Broadmead Day Care Centre for their carers’ coffee morning. The children performed 11 songs to a really engaged audience. They sang their hearts out and were an absolute pleasure to take. They will be performing tonight at the Christmas Fair. Many thanks to Mrs Cooke for preparing the children for this event and to Mrs Cooke , Mrs Mulhall and Mr Cunliffe for taking the children.

 

School Choir

Our school choir is becoming very popular and indeed, successful. Being part of the choir allows children to come together in a fun, disciplined and energetic way. It allows the children to express their thoughts and feelings through music. From my experience, singing is a great way to boost self-esteem and gain confidence. Sharing the songs together helps children to bond as a group and provides a ‘fun and uplifting experience’, which creates moments to enjoy immediately and memories that will last forever.

 

On Thursday, the school choir went to The Broadmead Centre to sing carols to the elderly who use the day centre. The children performed and sang magnificently and they were all a credit to Lowton West. Singing at venues such as this is one way of developing community links and one that helps the children to share their enjoyment of singing.

 

It was a delight and indeed an honour to be invited to attend this event and it was also a pleasure to see the enjoyment on the elderly faces at being entertained by such an enthusiastic and a well-polished choir.

Congratulations to Mrs. Cooke on all her hard work in getting the children to such a high standard and to Mrs. Mulhall for supporting the children at this event.

Well done to the entire Choir!

Lowton West Bottle Greenhouse

 

Bottle Greenhouse - Lynda Pouncey (Parent Governor)

Firstly a massive thank you to the Eco-committee and the Year 5 children for all their hard work through the day building the bottle greenhouse on Wednesday.

It was a fantastic day and everyone just mucked in together and had a great time.

I had a bit of a panic at one point that we did not have enough bottles but we ended up with some left over.

It looks brilliant and I am very proud of it and everyone who helped and really looking forward to growing plants in it with the children.

A special thank you also goes to the staff from Barclays Bank and Cpec for all their help, support and hard work throughout the day.

Lastly, a thank you to everyone for bringing in their bottles, we couldn't have done it without you.      

 

Thank you Mrs Pouncey

We would like to thank Mrs Pouncey for all of her hard work in organising for our new greenhouse to be built. It is fantastic!

Many thanks to C-pec and Barclays bank for their hard efforts on the day.

Thank you to everyone who contributed empty plastic bottles!

KEEPING quiet for a whole day would be challenging for most adults – but for chatterbox Samantha.  she made it look easy.

The Lowton West Primary School pupil and her friend Olivia, both aged 11, held a sponsored silence for a whole school day to raise money for their chosen charities.

Despite the efforts of their classmates to trick them into speaking, they did not give in and raised £146 which will be split between St Rocco's Hospice and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Samantha’s mum, said: “Samantha made a sign to put round her neck but some of the pupils had said they were going to try and make her talk.

“She managed it very well I’ve been told although I didn’t get the benefit of her silence when she got home from school. I’m very proud of her especially as she is normally quite a chatterbox.”

 

 

Wigan & Leigh Hospice – Golborne

The children in Year 1 have been busy making Easter crafts which are now being displayed in the window of Wigan and Leigh Hospice. Thank you to all the children in Year 1 who worked hard to make cards, baskets and sun catchers.
