If your child is aged 5 to 16 and gets benefits-related free school meals, you may be able to access free activities during the Summer and Christmas holidays through Fun, Food and Friends, Burnley’s holiday activities and food programme.
The programme is a great opportunity for children and young people to get out and about and get active.
We are working with local providers to make sure there are lots of things available to do in the Summer and Christmas holidays such as sport, creative activities, trips out and lots more!
Activities will help you learn more about nutrition as a family too and will give you the chance to have a go at cook tasty family meals at no cost to you.
We also want to help you and your children develop your understanding of nutrition and food budgeting. Activity providers will also be able to help signpost you to additional information and support, on things such as health, employment and education.

We have been informed that those who have caring responsibilities may now be eligible to receive their covid vaccination.
This applies to those who: “you provide care for someone and they or you receive funding for that care”
There will be a clinical assessment with a nurse as part of the process at the vaccination centre.
*At this point in the vaccination programme, to be eligible as a carer you will need to provide evidence at your appointment that you receive funding as a carer for example Carer’s Allowance or be able to evidence benefits for those you care for (examples include: Attendance Allowance, Disability Benefit, Personal Independence Payment or Disability Living Allowance). If the person you care for is a family member and receives funding you are still eligible for vaccination now, the provision of care does not have to be your main employment or occupation. If you are not able to provide evidence, you will not be able to have your vaccination.
This term in class we have been reading the book “The Wizard of Oz” and deciding what words best describe the characters in the story. We have enjoyed acting out the different characters. In Design and Technology we made a Tin Man puppet from junk materials.
Some of us have been exploring Full and Empty in Maths when we were measuring volume of liquids using measuring jugs and beakers
In Science we enjoyed testing different materials to see if they were soft, hard, see through, bendy or stretchy.
Some of us have been taking part in drama sessions with Burnley Youth Theatre and we really enjoy doing all the fun activities!
