Foundation Stage news...

He’s still on the loose!

The Big Bad Wolf has still not been caught! We have been reading and writing news reports about his antics – climbing onto the roof of the brick house and trying to get down the chimney! This afternoon we built more walls and a chimney, and took on the role of reporters, interviewing the wolf as he tried to get into the house!

More fun learning in the sun!

We’ve been making the most of the lovely weather again. Developing our upper body strength and fantastic physical skills helps us to become great writers!


The tallest chimney EVER!!!

We had a great time this afternoon creating a huge chimney for the Big Bad Wolf to climb down! Then we had fun acting out the story again. We can’t wait for further construction challenges next week, and finding out more about 3D shapes!


Super shapes!

We had great fun today investigating how we could make 2D shapes with our bodies in PE, a bit like using Kapla blocks last week! Have a look at the super shapes we made!

Fairy-Tale land news updates…

The Big Bad Wolf is still on the loose in Fairy-Tale Land and has now blown down the stick house, and been seen near the brick house! We have been developing an in-class newsroom to keep up with events, interviewing characters and reading and writing news reports. We have also been writing and talking about our own news. To help the three pigs,we have been thinking a lot about shapes used to build houses. We have enjoyed using Kapla blocks to make designs with 2D shapes and will be building with 3D shapes next week. We have also started to investigate the different materials we can use for building so we can advise the pigs about their choices. The Fairy-Tale Land police have been on the phone again, and we have been helping with their enquiries. Phew! What a busy week! Thank goodness we can apply our Maths, English and Science skills to help the people who need us!


Enjoying the sunshine, and immersed in stories!

We have had a great time designing houses for the three pigs this week using our mathematical skills by choosing 2D shapes to make plans. Outdoors in the sunshine, we have written messages and signs related to the story of “The Three Little Pigs” and enjoyed reading in our little pig’s house…until the wolf came and tried to blow it down!!!!!


What an exciting day!

We can’t believe the day we have had today! When we arrived at school we discovered that the Big Bad Wolf had left huge paw-prints around the room and even outdoors in the garden! So of course we knew we had to write reports to the Fairy-tale Land police to let them know as quickly as we could. A few hours later, the phone rang and it was the Fairy-tale Land police asking us for more details! We told the police officers as clearly as we could about what we had discovered. Later on we used 2D shapes to begin to plan and design houses for the pigs, talking about the features of the shapes we chose. Thankfully, before we went home the Fairy-tale police officers called again to let us know that the wolf had been sighted in the Big Dark Forest in Fairy-tale Land and was no longer near Liverpool. Phew! The officers were VERY grateful for our help. Have a look at our exciting day in the pictures below!


Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?

We have had a great week reading about the Big Bad Wolf who has escaped from the Fairy-tale Land Police! We have written about him, sent messages to report sightings, and designed and built traps and houses for him! Next week we will be reading all about his bad behaviour in the story of “The Three Little Pigs”. We’ve also had fun playing with bubbles and talking about the wind, and making and using our own hopscotch games. We also used target games in PE and outdoors to extend our maths skills.


A sunny welcome back!

We had a lovely first day of term yesterday, with the sun out and new friends joining us in Early Years! We had lots of fun outdoors in our lovely gardens, looking for and writing about the signs of spring we found as we played. In PE we enjoyed keeping scores and comparing numbers to extend our maths skills in a fun way!


St. Pat’s Got Talent 2018

We finished the term in style today with a beautiful church service for Holy Week, a lovely attendance assembly and, to top it all off, our annual St. Pat’s Got Talent spectacular! Children in each class from Nursery to Year 6 have been auditioning in their classes and practising hard to make through to the finals. The standard was so high again; the talent in this school is truly incredible! We had singing, dancing, piano playing, comedy and even magic!

In the end, Thomas and Alfie from Year 1, and Viyan from Year 6 were this year’s St. Pat’s Got Talent winners with their superb performances, but all the performers were outstanding. It was great to see so many parents there to support the children too, as always.

Well done, everyone and have a lovely Easter. Meanwhile, take a look at some of the photos and videos below!
