Autumn 2017

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Lisburne School.

We have had a very busy festive time over the past two weeks at Lisburne School. Our School shows were well attended by parents and carers as our talented children put on fantastic performances. Our signing choir displayed their skills by presenting a series of carols at Dialstone Methodist Church for MENCAP. We also celebrated by holding Christmas parties in the hall which included dancing and pass the parcel. Santa Claus also came to Lisburne, giving gifts to every single child. We would like to thank all parents and carers for their commitment to Lisburne over this festive time, your help with donations for Christmas mugs, show DVD’s and show raffles has yielded funds in excess of over £1000 at this time. Your generosity and support is greatly appreciated. A very Merry Christmas and a safe and prosperous new year to all.


Lisburne School Table Cricket Success

Over the past four weeks, Silver Birch Class have been taking part in a table cricket training programme at Lancashire County Cricket Club, Old Trafford. 

This experience has provided the children with a wonderful opportunity to learn new skills and participate alongside children from other schools.  The children have enjoyed developing their cricket skills each week and they have made incredible progress in such a short period of time. 

On Tuesday 28th November, Silver Birch Class took part in the inter-school competition where they competed against children from other schools in Greater Manchester.  They won the competition and each received a gold medal.  Lisburne School were presented with a trophy and will shortly receive the ‘Champions’ Shield’ which is currently being engraved. 

We are very proud of the way the children represented Lisburne School and how they worked together as a team.  It was a delight to see how they encouraged one another as well as the children from other schools.

Countdown to Christmas 2017

We have had a brilliant Autumn/ Winter Term, it has been fantastic to see so many of you supporting us in our Harvest celebrations and for our “try something different” activities during anti-bullying week. We enjoy all our creative weeks and opportunities to share in a range of learning experiences and of course our productions ~ “Shine Star, Shine” a fantastic Nativity story for EYFS and KS1 and “It’s a Christmas Party” for KS2.

Countdown to Christmas 2017


Anti-Bullying and E-Safety. PSHE Week 13th-17th November

Next week is Anti-Bullying Week. Here at Lisburne we are focussing on PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education). Our focus will be on Anti-Bullying and E-safety and our motto for the week will be ‘All different, all equal’. We will explore our physical differences (hair and eye colour for example), differences between our sensory experiences and other aspects about what make us unique. We will investigate these differences and reflect upon how our differences between one another actually make us equal. Everybody is unique, therefore, everybody is equal. For E-Safety, we will continue to look into how we can keep ourselves safe online, by protecting our personal information and making privacy our priority. Please expect a slideshow later next week showing all of our activities. In the mean time please take a look at our Anti-Bullying Policy:


Headteacher’s Message plus Important Diary Dates


Play Day at Lisburne School – Friday 20th October.


Non Fiction Creative Week. October 9th-13th.

With the term well under way, we took a deeper look at our topic of ‘food’ during Non-Fiction Creative Week this week. We have been reading books such as ‘Journey of a Chocolate Bar’ (Willow Class), Children’s Book of Baking Cakes (Ash Class) and ‘A World of Food – India’ (Hazel Class) plus many more.

We have been inspired by these books to be very creative. We have been learning dances from all over the world, sampling cuisines from exotic countries (our kitchen area has been filled with aromatic smells all week) and an understanding of how food grows from the ground and from trees. The whole school has shown a great deal of engagement and enthusiasm with our chosen topic. Please see a short slideshow below of what we have been up to this week.


Lisburne Awareness Day – Saturday 16th September

On Saturday 16th September, we held an awareness day at Lisburne School. The day was well attended with stalls and information given regarding many different disabilities such Angelman syndrome, Tuberous Sclerosis, Autism, Epilepsy and Pierre Robin Syndrome. Parents  and members of the local community had the opportunities to network. It was a chance for parents to be pampered and children to have fun making crafts and we also had a bouncy castle.


A Warm Welcome Back & Important Diary Dates

Welcome back ~ I hope that you’ve all had a good summer holidays. Autumn weather seems to have arrived a little early but the children all came into school happy and excited to start school last Wednesday.
