We had an excellent morning at La Tasca, Liverpool as part of our Spanish studies for international week. The children tried 4 different tapas dishes and some lovely children’s sangria! They practised some Spanish phrases to order food and converse with the waitress and chefs. It was an excellent opportunity for them to practise their table manners, try new foods, and learn outside the classroom. What dishes did you try boys and girls?
A spectacular celebration of singing took place on Friday, with 1500 pupils from across Liverpool taking part in the iSing Festival at the Philharmonic Hall! Every year, Resonate Music Hub brings together hundreds of school children and their teachers from 35 schools, to celebrate the amazing singing talent that exists in schools across our wonderful city.
St. Patrick’s had an incredible time at the event! All our Year 3s were there, plus all the KS2 members of choir, including our Resonate Singers who led the singing from the stage! The children learned a huge variety of songs, old and new, for the event, which also featured a special tribute to the 50th birthday of the Beatles’ Sgt Pepper album. Mr. Larkin played in the live band and all our children graced the stage to lead the crowd in performing our very own mash-up: “Ghost Town Funk” – a mash up of Ghostbusters, Oops Upside Your Head and Uptown Funk that we wrote just for the event! What a great day!
As part of our Geograhy fieldwork unit, we went to Darwen in Blackburn today. It poured down, but it didn’t dampen our amazing Year 3’s spirits! They stormed up Darwen Hill and loved exploring the Victorian folly. Along the way, we explored different plant species, saw a field of ponies (and a foal!), a flock of sheep. It was rather misty, but we enjoyed the beautiful views of Darwen between the clouds! At the top, we had a picnic and Ruaa managed to slip in some reading time! A great day had by all; we were rather sleepy on the way home!
On Friday Eco Club had a wonderful time rescuing tadpoles and other pond wildlife from our old pond, and moving them carefully to our beautiful new pond. Two frogs kept popping their heads up to watch us! Can you remember some of the creatures you spotted Eco Club?
