Autumn Term at
Livingstone Primary School!
We have had a very busy start to the school year with lots going on!
A message from the Headteacher:
I am delighted on behalf of the staff, Governors and children to welcome you to Livingstone. We are a friendly and caring school and we work hard to secure good relationships with everyone in our community.
Every child is unique. We have high expectations of our pupils and will support each individual to realise their potential. We respect and value each child and family. When your child becomes a pupil at Livingstone then you become a member of the Livingstone family.
With your help, we will provide opportunities for your child to develop a full range of intellectual, social, physical and emotional abilities in a secure and stimulating environment. Our curriculum is broad and challenging with a strong focus on the basic skills of literacy, oracy and numeracy. We expect and achieve high standards of behaviour based on mutual respect. We have a dedicated and experienced staff who are always ready to help you and your child.
We have some remarkable young people at Livingstone - your children! I look forward to joining you on your child’s learning journey.
Welcome to Livingstone!
Mrs Linda Crombie

Children in Need!
On Friday 17th November we had a 'Spotacular' day raising money for Children in Need. We all dressed in our spottiest outfits for mufti and each class participated in their own fundraising activities as well. These included face painting, biscuit sale and parties!
Pie face challenge!
At the beginning of the week the challenge was set; whichever class raised the most money over the week would be able to cream pie their teacher! All of the classes did brilliantly raising lots of money but the winning class, who raised nearly £70(!), was Owls! This meant the children got to cream pie Mr Wilson and Mrs Rudd; who were extremely good sports!
Livingstone Primary School raised an amazing total of over £500 for Children in Need, so well done all of you!
There are lots of videos and information about Children and Need and who our money will help on the Official Children in Need Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/BBCCiN
BOOK WEEK 2017!
We had a wonderful time during our annual book week 30.10.17-3.11.17. Each class spent lots of time studying their chosen book and looked amazing, as usual, on our Book Week Dress Up Day on Friday. Thank you for your mufti donations; we raised lots of money for new books for school!
Congratulations also to those children who won prizes for their costumes.

Black History Week
We enjoyed learning about Black History Week with all classes undertaking related activities. Some year groups made African masks and others had their own African Drumming workshop!
