Welcome to Furness Primary

Furness Primary School aims to provide a safe and positive atmosphere which stimulates a working environment and where children can achieve high standards through a solid foundation of teaching across a creative and broadly balanced curriculum.  We endeavour to provide all of our children with the skills needed to develop positive attitudes, where mutual respect, values and sensitivity are nurtured within a culturally diverse community.

In March at Furness

World Book Day - Friday 9th

World Book Day is a celebration! It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.

Science Week

Science week commences on Monday 12th March and ends Friday 16th March. The main emphasis for the week will be based on elements of working scientifically. The focus will be on working scientifically and it can come from any aspect of Science. Friday 16h March there will be a science production from Quantum Theatre called Journey to the Bottom of the Garden. This production is for years 2-6. There will be a charge of £1 per child. Friday, 16th March, there will be a whole school assembly to conclude proceedings. Children from classes will present science work (one short presentation per class).

In February at Furness

Next week is Safer Internet Day which is celebrated globally in February each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people and inspire a national conversation. The theme this year is "create, connect and share respect: a safer internet beigins with you."  It calls upon young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies and policymakers to join together in helping to create a better internet. 

At Furness we are dedicating the week to the safer use of the internet. All computing lessons will emphasise the importance of being safe online.  E-safety is part of the computing curriculum but the week offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technologgy and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community. Parents are also being invited to attend an an e-safety briefing on Thursday 8th February at 3.30pm. We hope that many parents will be able to attend, as this is an important aspect for keeping our children safe. 

Snow Day

Knife Crime Workshop

We believe that every young person should have the chance for a positive future. Together we can encourage children to make wise life choices: to stay in school, stay out of gangs and knife crime, and work hard to realise their incredible potential.

Air Quality Poster competition and Dr Bike

Following up from the Air Quality Assembly, children went away and had one week to produce posters linked to reducing air pollution and increasisng awareness for cleaner travelling to school. This is what the best students have come up with. On the same day, we had Dr Bike in school, providing a free health check on children’s bikes, ensuring they are safe to ride. There was also a free, healthy breakfast for those children who cycled to school this morning, which went down a treat! A big thanks to Dr Bike and his crew.

Air Pollution Assembly

On Monday we had a guest speaker visiting our school from the Bite It Plus programme to talk air pollution, how to improve the quality of air we breath and how cycling can greatly contribute to a healthier and happier life. The benefits also extend to financial rewards and cleaner environment. There was a lot of information to take in, and the impact is already being felt with an increase in the number of children cycling to school. Children were given the chance to enter a competition where they will be producing a poster linked to air pollution and how to reducce it. As well as the assembly, two Nitrogen Dioxide tubes were installed in the playground and at the front gate to measure the levels of pollution in school.

Benchball for Red House

Congratulations to the Red House for winning the most points this term.

End of Term Tournaments

At the end of each school term, students at furness have the chance to take part in sports tournaments. This is an excellent way to consolidate skills learnt throughout the term, and a great opportunity to develop healthy competitions across the school with a very strong PE and PSHE theme but also to reward children for their hard work and to challenge all the talent we have in school. To enter, teams had to mix players from different year groups which added more cooperation between students. All children in RED house had the chance to take part in a Benchball tournamnet in the last week of the term as a reward for collecting the most points.

Road Safety Week

For Road Safety Week this week, we had two cycling instructors to come to our school to talk to our children about being safe on the road. Roads are like the veins and arteries of our bodies. They are the link between different places. Roads can be busy places, roads can be noisy places. More sadly roads can be places where sometimes accidents happen some of which are fatal. To increase awareness for how to be safer on our roads, we have invited two cycling instructors whose job is to actually teach children how to travel safely on the road.

Anti-bullying Conference at the Brent Civic Centre

Sahar in Year 6AH, her father and Ciara in year 6HR along with Mrs Cooke attended the Anti-bullying Conference. Ciara presented her anti-bullying video and Sahar spoke about her poster to other Primary and Secondary schools is Brent.  Everyone was very impressed by the excellent work that they had achieved. We took part in workshops and Ciara explained at the end of the Conference that 'It is great to have conferences and talk about anti-bullying but we need to remember that bullying still goes on.  It is important that  we must always speak out if we see it happening'.
