Autumn Term at
Livingstone Primary School.
A new school year!
A note from Mr Thornes
Hello and welcome to Livingstone Primary School and our website.
It's a really exciting time for me having recently started as Headteacher and I'm looking forward to both the challenges and the experience.
Livingstone is an incredibly warm and friendly place, reflected by both our staff and pupils. We love active learning and active minds here and there's always huge amounts going on across the year groups. The welcome I've received here has been wonderful and the children feel as passionately as I do that this is a great place to be.
What I do know is that we have a fantastic team of staff here and that we are all trying our hardest to improve every pupil and make sure that school life is fun, stimulating, varied, rigorous but enjoyable.
I've been in lessons every day so far, and that's exactly what I see. Happy children, feeling a part of a team that feel they can succeed.
In the next few months I'll be working with the staff, pupils, governors and stakeholders to move the school forward together and make the Livingstone experience an even better one.

Please remember to bring contributions for our Harvest Collection in the Hall which will be gifted to the Bedford Food Bank .
Year 4 had a very exciting and informative trip to Holdenby House on Wednesday 19th September. The children took part in a World War 2 experience day as part of their topic work.
The children had the chance to experience making Woolton Pie and a range of other seasonal wartime foods and learned about the weekly ration. They also tried knitting and making rag rugs for a Make-Do-and-Mend Drive. They were shown you how to keep safe during war time by using Air Raid Shelters and Gas Masks. The Major, convalescing from a war wound, spoke about the items he carries in his kitbag and other wartime safety matters.
We had an exciting Sports Week with lots going on including boxing, tennis, fencing and judo workshops as well as scooting and, of course, our Sports Days!
Thank you to Mrs Goodwin and the Sports team for organising these activities for us.
Boxing with Bobby Bangher!
