Well done Lakeside on being accredited with the Basic Skills Quality Mark for the third time!
The Basic Skills Quality Mark is an award that celebrates and supports continuous improvement in literacy and numeracy.
It is awarded to a setting or school to recognise their provision, practice and performance in literacy and numeracy, and is valid for three years.
A school or setting must demonstrate a whole school approach to improving standards in literacy and numeracy, with evidence of the impact of its approaches.
It provides a framework for self-evaluation and continuous improvement of the basic skills of all pupils in a school, including those who underachieve and those who underattain.
For further information, go to the BSQM website at http://www.qm-alliance.co.uk
On Friday 6th March we will be celebrating World Book Day at Lakeside Primary. Children are invited to come to school in pyjamas and bring their favourite book, a torch and a blanket for ‘books under the blanket’. Classes have special activities planned including building ‘blanket fortresses’ and reading with children in other year groups. Pupils will also receive their £1 World Book Day voucher which can be exchanged in bookshops for any of the WBD special £1 books or towards full price books. Keep reading!
Come along to our fantastic film club for KS2 on Tuesdays after school!
In our first half term we have watched a variety of exciting films to suit all interests. Whilst you watch your film you can sit back and relax on one of our comfy beanbags and nibble on snacks and soft drinks.
Coming up next half term we will be cooking delicious popcorn so you feel like you are actually at the movies with your friends!
Please let Miss Groves or Miss Weston know of any films you would like to recommend.
We look forward to seeing you there!

Year 4 visited Murton Park on Thursday 22nd January. It was a very cold day but we had all wrapped up warmly! We dressed up as Roman soldiers, it was quite difficult to keep our helmets on and carry a spear and shield at the same time! We signed up to the army for 25 years and then made clay oil lamps as well as practising our weapons training. Later in the day a Celt attacked our fort but we saw him off! At the end of our visit we tried the Testeudo formation and then marched off home, left, right, or, as the Romans would have said:SIn, Dex, Sin, Dex!The main gate.
This machine is called a ballista. It fired a huge arrow.
Replica shields and swords – they would have been very heavy!

Hail Caesar! The end of the day.
