On Friday afternoons some of the Year 5 children have been coming down to Reception to read to the children and listen to Reception children read their books. All the children know how important it is to practise their reading and have really enjoyed sharing their books with the older children!

Healthy Eating Workshop

Date: 18th Jan 2019 @ 12:59pm

Year 5 learned so much in our healthy eating workshop with Mr Healthy this week! They had a lot of fun finding out all about what our bodies needs to stay healthy. We thought about; the food groups and the types of foods we need, the impact these foods have on our bodies, all the different types of fruit to encourage us to aim for '7 a Day' and how to move more to keep us fit. 

There were lots of fun games and activities meaning a very enjoyable day was had by all!

The children have also got some 'Staying Healthy' booklets to share at home.

Stone Age Day

Date: 12th Jan 2019 @ 9:36pm

To introduce our new topic on the Stone Age, we had a special visitor come into class and tell us all about the Stone Age. The children learned lots of interesting facts about Stone age people and how they survived. We even got to hold a Mammoths tooth.

The Maiden Voyage to the Maritime Museum

Date: 11th Jan 2019 @ 8:19am

As part of our learning about our new topic- 'Why is the unsinkable ship at the bottom or the sea?' We went on a trip to the Maritime Museum to find out more about the mysterious Titanic. This helped us in our learning and really got us thinking about lots more questions we want to answer throughout the topic.

Santa and the Cheeky Elf!

Date: 20th Dec 2018 @ 12:05pm

Year 2 has been rocked by 2 special arrivals! 

We were shocked to find that Ernie the Elf had made his way into school by hiding in someone's lunch box! What a cheeky elf he is!

On our party day we were practising some Christmas songs that led to the arrival of SANTA HIMSELF! He brought us some special gifts and even had time for a boogie before heading back to Rudolph who was ready for his next journey!

Our Islamic Learning

Date: 19th Dec 2018 @ 7:20pm

Throughout our learning of Islam this term, we learned about the 5 pillars of Islam and the beliefs Muslims have. We also learned about the Mosques and what artefacts are found inside. Each of the children then designed a prayer mat using the religious symbols and imagery out of felt. Take a look at the final outcomes.

The Landlord's Cat

Date: 19th Dec 2018 @ 6:59pm

This year we worked on our Christmas Play called the Landlord's Cat! The children worked so hard to learn their lines and the songs and really showed how amazing they are in front of an audience! Take a look at some of the snaps we took after the dress rehearsal! 

Finding Materials, Properties and Origins

Date: 19th Dec 2018 @ 6:45pm

During our topic work in Science, we have been looking at where materials come from and how we describe them. We have really enjoyed this topic and were very interested to find out we brush our teeth with chalk and that rubber comes from trees! 

As part of our learning we also experimented with slime and carried out some material hunts as part of our home learning. We also made capes using different materials. Take a look at our learning.

Tree Planting

Date: 10th Dec 2018 @ 4:56pm

On Friday, Year 3 were lucky enough to be asked to plant trees in our school field. The Mersey Forest organisation and one of St Helens Park Rangers came to help us. We planted many saplings which will grow to help our environment.

Tree planting with the Mersey Forest.

Date: 7th Dec 2018 @ 3:31pm

This morning children in year 1 took part in a tree planting session run by the Mersey Forest Organisation. Children worked in pairs digging holes and planting over 50 saplings. Year 1 then wrote fantastic thankyou letters which we will be emailing across to the Mersey Forest Organisation over the weekend. Well done Year 1, super hard work!

A special visitor in Foundation Stage!

Date: 4th Dec 2018 @ 9:17am

We came into a great big mess in Foundation Stage this morning, but the children didn’t make it (for a change!). Instead we discovered that we’ve got our own special Elf! He’s come to watch over us and check we are all being good (which we all are anyway except Mrs Bloxham) and trying our hardest.


Update 19/12/18: We came in to school to find the Elf had taken all the pens away (because we keep leaving the lids off them!) At the end of the day we went on a hunt to find him. We followed the trail of pens to find that he had left the pens for us on the big play ground and a message!

Eco-Council meeting

Date: 23rd Nov 2018 @ 2:12pm

In this week's Eco-Council meeting, Scott (Lyme Park's Ranger) came to talk to us about ideas to develop the park area. He asked the group to look at a map of the park and think about how we can help him to improve the signs and encourage more people to visit.

In the Spring/Summer term he will be asking the Eco-Council to lead a competition across school to design some art work for the new signs.

Date: 16th Nov 2018 @ 4:15pm

After learning about the BBC Children in need appeal, children in Year 1 and 2 decided to set up a last minute 'unloved toy shop' in aid of the charity. Thank you to all the children and families who all pulled together and donated toys and books for the shop. Key stage 1 raised a fantastic £50.00, which will be donated to this years appeal alongside the schools own clothes day donations. All unsold donations will be donated this weekend to Willowbrook Hospice.
