On the 16th April 2017, Blackpool & Lancashire Local Authorities will inform parents of the primary school their child has been allocated to. Not all parents will necessarily receive their first choice of school. For September 2017, the full allocation of 30 pupil places has been made at Christ the King & St. Cuthbert’s Catholic Academies. If your child has not been allocated a place at Christ the King & St. Cuthbert’s and you would like to try to secure a place for them please follow the process outlined here. We would strongly advise you not to reject the place at the school your child has been allocated until you hear the outcome of the Appeals process.
To begin the day, the children had to pass a series of skills tests, which involved emergency stops, signalling and a range of different maneuvers.
In the afternoon, the children ventured out onto the roads. They had great fun learning about road safety and were out and about around Grange Park all afternoon.

The drama unfolded last Friday, when Year 5 received a mysterious and shocking letter which said, “ANNOUNCMENT OF DEATH. With this sad news of your fellow Egyptian, please prepare yourself for mourning and come to the ceremony room.”
Carried away with curiosity, but shaking with fear, we quickly rushed to the ceremony room. To our horror, we saw our close friend and beloved classmate (Jack Vernon) lying lifeless on a linen-covered table. Feeling shocked, we realised that our classmate was about to be mummified in the dark, silent and spooky ceremony room.
Mr Salmon began to explain the gruesome mummification process and remove Jack’s precious organs. First, he removed his brain! YUK! Meanwhile, Mrs Lund and Miss Murphy, who looked hilarious in their bed-sheet robes, were placing Jack’s organs (his brain, intestines, stomach and liver) into the ancient canopic jars.
Once the ceremony was complete, we returned to class. We were relieved to find Jack alive!! Miss Hilton allowed us to explore the body parts (which were really animal organs). We got to feel them and see what a real pig’s heart looked like.
Jack Vernon, who played the part of the dead Ancient Egyptian, explained “I felt really confused and a bit terrified because I actually did not want a hook put up my nose! I thought he was really going to turn me into a mummy!”
The excitement continued on Wednesday morning, when we set off on another exciting adventure to the University of Manchester Museum, which was full of interesting history. Our hearts were racing when we found out we would be coming face-to-face with the real-life Egyptian Mummy, Asru. We enjoyed exploring ancient artefacts and learning about the life of the Ancient Egyptians.
We cannot wait to find out where our next adventure will take us.
