Welcome to our weekly newsletter!

Hello from Balladen School.

We are very proud of our children, the learning that takes place at our school and everyone in our school community: teachers, teaching assistants and every other single person who works at our incredible school.


This week has been another busy week of learning and fun at our school.


On Monday we were really proud of the Year 5 and Year 6 children who participated in the Tag Rugby Tournament in Haslingden.


On Tuesday one of our Year Six children went to Rock FM in Manchester to share their pledge as they had won the pledge competition.You can read here amazing pledge here.


Wednesday was an incredibly busy day as some of our Year 6 children began their Cycling Velo program. We were really proud of their behaviour and attitude and the members of the team who came to our school were very complimentary about the children. Well done Year 6! Year 1 and 2 children also had their animal olympics that day and had a really good time.


On Thursday Year 5 and 6 had a chance to participate in Maths football. The tweet by the team who came to school was again very complimentary about our wonderful children.

After school on Thursday some of our children also had Tag Rugby at Marl Pits.


On Friday we shared learning in our Celebration assembly. You can see a short film of that below. Our Year 5 children had a wonderful tie with Mr Grime making elderflower cordial!
