Pupils from Woodlands Primary & Marton enjoyed taking Marty for a walk yesterday. They practiced his commands and rewarded him with treats (though none of the pupils were fast enough to catch him with his tennis ball!) The Woodlands pupils are hoping to have a therapy dog for their school too soon.
The following photos were taken by Marton pupils, Richard, Robbie and Charlie (Year 5) and Chanice (Year 6):
A huge thank you for all your kind donations which will go to Blackpool Street Life (a youth work charity which assists vulnerable young people in the Blackpool Area).

This morning our Year 5 class has been working with Little Life Savers which is a charity set up to teach basic life support skills to schoolchildren aged 9 years and older. We believe that all children should have the opportunity to learn these skills which empower them to to act positively should they ever be faced with an emergency situation. During the session, the children learnt about:
How to help a choking child
How to perform Child Basic Life Support “Hands-Only” CPR
How to perform Adult Basic Life Support “Hands-Only” CPR
How to put a casualty into the Recovery Position
Little LifeSavers is a registered charity and all sessions are free of charge. They are always in need of funds to continue to teach these essential skills around the country. Please consider assisting their funding by visiting www.totalgiving.co.uk/donate/little-lifesavers
In their ancient history lessons, Year 5 have been learning about the process of Egyptian mummifying. Today, they investigated how this was done and even had a go at trying out the technique (safely of course!). The ‘best mummy’ was judged by Mrs Coyle and this was based on how authentic the winners had carried out the process (for example, mummies’ mouths traditionally were not covered to let the person eat and breath in the afterlife).
