As soon as we heard that we had received a video message from Lithuania, we started to work on a reply. The OLV TV Team worked for a while before producing a video and some pictures to send to the pupils in Lithuania. Here is the video from Lithuania and the video that OLV made for [...]
Several of us have been told about some proposed changes to the park off North Dean Road. We were asked to think about the things we would like to see in the park if it is improved. This is what children at OLV who live close to the park wanted. It will be fun for [...]
The Dog Muck Competition has reaped some excellent results and Mr Devlin and Councillor Smithies have found it hard to choose the winners! But they finally managed it. Here are the winners.
Zoeya Sajid – She won £30
Harrison Blenkard – He won £20
Jordan Heckles – She won £10
Zoeya and Harrison, along with the school council, went out onto the roads to put their signs up. A man from the Keighley News went along to take some photos. The winners are happy with their rewards, the school is happy with the posters, but will they work? That remains to be seen…

The awesome Great White Shark is the largest hunting fish in the sea. It has an exaggerated reputation as a killer, partly because a killer shark appears in the film ,jaws. In reality Great White Sharks do often eat large prey, but they attack people only occasionally, in cases of mistaken identity.
A young Tiger Shark has pale stripes along it’s body, which fade as it grows older. The powerful Tiger shark has a long , rounded shape, typical of hunting sharks. Some Tiger Sharks can rival Great Whites in size.
The Zebra Shark is a medium seized species of shark, that is found in the warmer coastal waters and around tropical coral reefs. Zebra sharks are commonly found in the Indian and South Pacific oceans.
This sharks unusual name comes from the unusual shape of its head, an amazing piece of anatomy built to maximise the fish’s ability to find it’s favourite meal, stingrays.

You can do anything on it that a Tablet does, Iphone, ipod and Laptop. This means you can play on apps, go on twitter, facebook or watch the TV shows you have missed etc.

Year 6 are currently in Paris on a weekend visit. That doesn’t stop Fab Mag though… updates are being sent in via twitter, e-mail and phone calls. This post will be updated each time something new is sent in.
They set off from school in the early hours of Friday morning. They arrived in Dover on time for the ferry. The English Channel was quite calm when they crossed so the children enjoyed the journey.
After arriving in France the coach stopped at Vimy Ridge. Vimy Ridge was the scene of a famous battle in the First World War. The children looked at reconstructed trenches and paused for thought at the memorial to the fallen.
After Vimy Ridge the children travelled to the Chateau that they are staying in. They have had lots of fun their already!
On Saturday the children are heading into Paris. here they are waiting for the coach to pick them up.
The children visited Mont Matre and the Eifell Tower yesterday. In the evening they attended mass at Notre Dame de Victoires.
The news this week has been written by children in Year 4.
Reception have enjoyed looking at little animals.
Year 1 have been learning about animals which live in the Arctic.
Year 2 are going to Thackray Museum on 7th February to learn about Florence Nightingale as part of their topic work.
Year 3 are working very hard on their topic which is weather.
Year 4 have been learning about India and making flags of India. Mr Moorhouse was very impressed by how much Year 4 knew about India!
Year 5 children have worked hard on their targets in English this week.
Year 6 have travelled to Paris today. They have been interviewed on RadioOLV from the coach.
This week’s country is France. Three guesses why. That’s right! Year Six are in Paris this week! We have searched the internet and found a few interesting facts.
- Frogs legs
- Crème brûlée
All of these and many more have helped to earn France a reputation for food that we don’t always like.
The Sights Of Paris
The Eiffel Tower
Probably the best known landmark in Europe, the Eiffel Tower is the symbol of Paris and if anyone ever went to Paris, they always went to see the Eiffel Tower. You can climb up the stairs or take the lift.
One of the not-to-miss sights in Paris is the Louvre Museum, possibly the most famous museum in the world with a fabulous collection. It is in the Louvre Palace, once the residence of France’s royal family.
The Notre Dame de Paris is one of the first Gothic cathedrals ever built. The building of it started in 1163 and lasted for almost twenty years. The view from the north tower is a great view of the city.
The Arc de Triomphe, located at the Place Charles de Gaulle celebrates Napoleon’s victories. The arch was completed in 1836, long after Napoleon’s reign had come to an end.
Year 5 have begun a project on Victorian Keighley.
Year 5 pupils are starting a project on Victorian Keighley. They are using copies of documents, photographs, maps and original objects from the time as part of this project.
They will learn what it was like to be a child in Keighley during Victorian times and find out what the local area was like between 1837 and 1901.
When the weather is a bit better the class will go on a history walk around the area. Mr Devlin and Mr Moorhouse will take them into town and back and talk to the class about lots of Victorian buildings that we can still see.
Last year we went on this walk. There are Victorian postboxes, a Victorian Cemetery remains of a Victorian Slum and lots of mills and factories from the Victorian period very close to school. There was also a hospital and a reservoir near Our Lady of Victories that Year 5 will learn about in their project.
Here are some photographs from last years History trail.
