Welcome to the REACH page, this is the new 'umbrella' name for the pupil voice groups in school. Created by pupils, the name stands for
This is where the RotaKids, School Council and Eco team meet together to undertake collaborative activities and initiatives in our school and local community.
Currently, pupils are taking part in logo competition to design the logo for REACH, this will be displayed on the webpage, display board and on newsletters. Have you created your design yet? Don't forget to hand it in to your class reps this week.
Also, pupils are sharing their ideas for why "We love Linaker". Class reps collected children's ideas and comments and are in the process of making a fabulous display to highlight everything about their school which makes them proud. Any more ideas? Speak to your class rep and we'll make sure they go on the display.
Recently, during science week, each pupil made a pledge to take one small step that would make a difference, these included closing the doors to save on heating costs, walking to school instead of coming by car, using both sides of the paper before recycling and many many more! These pledges are displayed outside of each classroom.
"How can we brighten up the playground?" Once this challenge was posed, Key Stage 1 pupils leaped into action and planted flowers, bulbs and seeds in the playground beds and at the front of the school. Already looking brighter, we can't wait till the sunflowers start to grow and the bulbs bloom.
Check back regularly to keep up to date with the latest news from the REACH group.

What makes Linaker great?
Nathan, Shannon and Kelly have been prowling the corridors to find out what pupils and staff love about Linaker. After half term; Key Stage 1 interviews!
Love Our Community week.
Pupils in every class worked together to devise activities that would improve life in our school, local, national and global community.
Children have planted flowers, picked up litter, visited a nursing home to share memories of Southport, donated to the local food bank and collected toiletries to make washbags for the homeless to name just a few of the child-led initiatives.
A huge well done to all involved, it has been a super week and humbling to see how dedicated Linaker pupils are to making a difference.
Love our Community
Donations of toiletries.
Words cannot express how humbled and overwhelmed Year 6 children and staff were when the donations of toiletries literally poured into the classrooms. The generosity of the families at Linaker Primary is outstanding, hundreds of items were donated.
Year 6 pupils organised the items then bagged them up to take to the Soup Kitchen to help the homeless and less fortunate.
As so many items had been donated, the children made a decision to give half to the Southport Foodbank. John was able to visit school to collect the items today and told us how the foodbank had actually run out of toiletries this very day and there were three families in desperate need who they could now help. He was extremely grateful that our generous families were able to help so many less fortunate.
A huge "thank you" to everyone who has so generously donated .
Year 4 have been focussing on 'Positivity'. We have been thinking about speaking positively to one another, being positive role models in school and trying to have a positive outlook. We have talked about having a 'Growth Mindset' and changing our thinking...it's not that we can't do it; we just can't do it yet.
During this week we have created posters that have inspirational or positive messages. We have talked about acknowledging those that help us, giving compliments to people and giving messages of encouragement and comfort to those in need.
