ON REC Children like getting messy IPES in the kitchen, but there’s more to us than chocolate rice crispy cakes! Children who take part in the Kiddy Cook kitchen don’t just get to make a cake, they get to conduct a ‘volcano’ experiment to learn how carbon dioxide works to make their cakes and biscuits rise. They learn the difference between taste and flavour and think about the effect sound has on their ability to eat.

LOCAL ART EXHIBITION TAKES OFF AT GERRARDS

GALLERY CAFÉ

Competition by Harvey Foster Oil on Canvas

Last month Gerrards launched their newly opened, “GALLERY CAFÉ” and local artists were invited to exhibit their work free of charge, with a nominal commission whenever an item was sold. The response has been excellent, with various artists from all over the Fylde area, bringing their paintings and art work to be displayed on the café walls. There is a wide range of styles, techniques and subject matter, that makes this a most interesting collection of local art. We are now looking forward to having more artists bringing their work for display.

Stardrop by Nigel Goode Acrylic on Canvas

So, when you are next in St Annes, please call in for a coffee or tea and a snack and have a browse - you will be made most welcome To illustrate the quality of work on display, we show a few typical items.

Have you ever wanted to be a rock star? Well, everyone who comes to Rock-Jam Music Schools to learn electric guitar, drums, bass, or keyboards also gets the experience of playing in a real, live rock band, at the same time as learning their instrument in a unique and enjoyable way. Gary Heyes, who owns the schools in Cleveleys, St. Annes, Lancaster, and Preston says: “This is by far the most enjoyable way of learning an instrument. For children, often the problem is keeping them motivated so that they practice and improve. Here at Rock-Jam our students are taught by young tutors on a 2:1 basis, and get to play with other budding musicians in a rock band environment every week as part of their lesson. This really keeps them motivated!” Come along and have a

FREE hour-long taster lesson to try us out.

Manor Beach Primary

Spring Term highlights

34

Manor Beach has had another successful term celebrating a range of achievements, one exciting highlight being the winning of both the Netball league and Rally. The team played extremely well and were recognised for their skill and sporting nature. They are now excited to be representing Manor Beach as they play teams in other areas. A team of children also took part in the Cross Country event. Although we did not win as a team, they all put in maximum effort and one of our Yr 6 boys came third. Fantastic. We also had a successful book week where children completed a range of activities from enjoying stories, writing book reviews and designing wanted posters for their favourite characters to name just a few. The week ended with children coming to school in their pyjamas and sharing their favourite bedtime stories. In March, school took part in World Maths Day challenges. This was an opportunity for children of all ages to compete in maths challenges on the internet with children from all around the world. Children worked hard practising for the event. The children with the 3 highest scores on the day were presented with certificates. Well done to all the children who took part.

Grandparent’s day was another successful event, where grandparents thoroughly enjoyed listening to poems, songs and looking at pictures the children had painted of them. Our musical achievements have also been rewarded this term with the school being awarded the Silver Sing Up award. This reflects the hard work the staff and children have put in and our commitment as a school to music. Currently the school is working on an eco project and the Spring term has seen the planting of trees around the edge of the school field by our Yr5 children. The children showed enthusiasm towards the project and are looking forward to the next part. The term ended with our Easter celebrations. What a great display of Easter bonnets, eggs and baskets! It has been a busy term and we look forward to the challenges and achievements of the summer term.

Thornton Cleveleys RUFC

The Rugby season has almost come to a close for past to out fox the more mature players in the hoppers team Thornton-Cleveleys RUFC with both teams only having a few yet this team youth prevailed. The 2nds found out soon competitive fixtures left to play. enough that they had the legs on this side and produced the The 1st team have played two games since the last print and goods to come away with a 0 - 52 victory. the 2nds have played 3. Both the 1st team matches were at home and they managed to keep their hopes of an unbeaten season intact by securing two wins. The first came against a tough Ormskirk side who were on a winning streak of their own when they turned up at Thornton YMCA. Ormskirk had started the season badly but bucked their ideas up towards the end of the season and had won their last 7 games in a row, the 1sts knew it would be a strong side turning up to face them and they kept their heads well to win the game 19 - 0. Their 2nd win came against a travelling Upper Eden side, Thornton-Cleveleys had a tough time against Upper Eden when they met up in Cumbria earlier on in the season but were aware that Eden’s home form was always alot better than their away form. The visitors arrived with a 15 man squad but proved they weren’t just here to make up the numbers and took it to the home side right from the off, with such a good start to the game no-one could have predicted what happened next, Thornton-Cleveleys producing their biggest win in their 85 year history winning the game 130 - 0! It was an outstanding performance by the lads and a brilliant achievement.

As with any Rugby season ending at Thornton-Cleveleys RUFC there comes a time to celebrate the time that’s past. The lads have got lots to look forward to including Players Night and The End of Season Ball. The End of Season Ball will mark the 85th year of club history and everyone involved is looking forward to a great night to celebrate a truly superb season.

The 2nd team played all 3 of their recent matches away, the 1st was to top of the table Chorley, this was always going to be a tough game and although the 2nds put in a sterling effort they came away the losers 28 - 5. Their next fixture was against local rivals Preston Grasshoppers, these games are always fiesty affairs and the 2nds have struggled in the

Games are played on Saturday afternoons at Thornton YMCA and kick off at 3pm. Training is on Mondays and Wednesdays, it starts at 6.45pm and usually ends around 8.30pm. Everybody is welcome to train, play and support so come down to your local club if you’d like to get involved. We’d love to see you there!

The up and coming 3rd team have also played two friendly fixtures, one against The Village Spartans who hale from Sale and the other against Chorley 3rds. Thornton-Cleveleys lost their first game against The Village Spartans but were successful against Chorley 3rds coming away with the win. Well done fellas! Although the leagues are coming to an end there’s lots of other Rugby to look forward to in the off season.
