Bark and Read 21.6.17

Today we were joined by Mitch. He is a lurcher. He is the male dog that was rescued with Zella who visited us last week. They have two children who were rescued with them, and after they were rescued the the vet found out that Zella is going to have more puppies.

Mitch was a bit nervous when there was a big group of us but when there were only two of us and we were nice and calm he felt less shy and was very friendly.  He even made friends with the doctor who is is visiting our school today! As well as reading we learned some more things today about how dogs feel and behave and how to think about our own actions and how it might make the dogs feel.

Shylowen stables

A group of children from year 6 went to Shylowen stables for a pony care and horse riding session.

We went to get a new experience and face a challenge to help us to get ready and feel confident about moving on to new things in secondary school.

We brushed the horses and learned some thing about them and then we had chance to ride two horses.

Ice Trap Shackletons

Today in year 6,we had a debate on our book called Ice Trap Shackletons incredible expedition.Our debate was if Shackleton would leave the island or stay. There were some really strong reasons to stay, but it was chosen he would leave the island. Can anyone explain why we decided this was the best option?

PE and Science week

What an action packed week we’ve had in school! We’ve had so many PE and Science related activities that have helped us to become fitter, healthier and gain more understanding of how our bodies work.

Throughout the school, we have been learning about how exercise affects our heart rate and carrying out different investigations to identify any changes to our bodies. We have had yoga with Olivia Hill and Miss Routledge, high intensity interval training with the Body Coach and personal trainers from Pure Gym, extra Science lessons about the human body and nutrition, PE lessons, a KS1 multi-sports competition and Year 4 went on a walk on the Wirral.

Everybody should be so proud of the scientific knowledge that they have shown to our visitors and to the people that they have met outside of school,  they have also worked extremely hard at improving their fitness during physical tasks!

Finally, a huge thank you to everyone that has been involved this week, teachers, teaching assistants, and volunteers. You have helped us to provide a fantastic week for our pupils.



Science and PE Week in Year 5

We have had a fabulous science and PE week. We have done lots of things.

On Tuesday, we did an exercise class with the coaches from Pure Gym. It was exhausting but so much fun at the same time. We then had our UK Military Schools in the afternoon and we did a speed test to check our fitness.

On Wednesday, we did a whole school workout with Mr Lowry and Mr Hignett and all the other teachers and staff. We could feel all of our achy muscles (DOMS) from the day before.

On Thursday we had our usual PE lesson with Mr Hignett and in the afternoon we did science. We look at the bones in our bodies and created our very own skeletons.

Today, we have done Yoga with Mrs Routledge and PE with Miss Waters. We practiced our basket ball skills and passing games.

Such a fun week!

Marble Maze Challenge

We made marble runs using cardboard, tape, tubes and cartons. We tried to make sure the marble went down as slowly as possible to win the challenge. We added lots of objects that created friction. We had border paper, and lids and tape to make bumps along the run.


School Council meeting 13.6.17

Year 5 would like more trips – each class will have a trip during this half term.

Year 1 would like a yoga classes – years 1 and 2 have yoga today!

Some people would like more of the gym exercise equipment on the yard because everyone likes it so much, but it is expensive so we will have to share and take turns.

We talked about our lessons and discussed what we thought we would change and what we thought was working well. We really like it when we do activities in lessons and we think a lot of our lessons are interesting and fun.

Today Zella came to visit us. She is 4 years old.  Her breed is a lurcher. She is very calm and her story is sad. She was abandoned by her owners with her family who were another dog and their two puppies who are 1 year old.

She was very calm and chilled. We thought she might be a little bit nervous of us, but she seemed happy. She is friendly, she liked to listen to us. She was very well behaved.IMG_3981 IMG_3982 IMG_3983 IMG_3985 IMG_3988 IMG_3991 IMG_3992 IMG_3993

Science day at St Julie’s

image image image image image image imageWow! What an amazing day we had with St Julie’s Year 3s! It was a sheer delight to see you build friendships so quickly, and to watch you learning and playing together.

The children played science bingo, investigated the chemical reaction between coke and mentos, became sports engineers and made moon buggies!

Thanks to all of the staff and children’s at St Julie’s for a wonderful day!
