Shoebox appeal

We are delighted to have been able to collect and create 51 shoeboxes at St Patrick’s this year. Thank you everyone! Today the Year 6 Faith in Action group enjoyed a visit to the Operation Christmas Child sorting centre to see how the boxes are checked, sorted and packed before shipping by some wonderful volunteers.


Silly Sock Day!

We had so much fun at our silly sock day yesterday!

Thanks to all the friends and family who came along to celebrate our learning from the book “Socks” by nick Sharratt.


Our Islam assembly

Thank you to everyone who came or contributed to our lovely assembly this morning. The children have learnt so much this week and it is wonderful to see the respect they have for one another!


KS1 learn all about Islam

KS1 had very special visitors from the mosque yesterday to tell us all about Islam, prayer and the Prophet Muhammad. We love finding out about other faiths and religions and every one of us listened very carefully to our visitors. Take a look at some of our wonderful photos…




Year 2 Bird Feeders

Year 2 have started hanging their bird feeders up on trees in the school grounds. We are helping feed the birds during winter when the weather gets colder. We love helping our world! Take a look at our photos so far…


The Race to Make Mr. Potato Head continues…

The results so far are very close with 4 classes all having 6 pieces each, and the other classes not far behind. This could be a close run race!
Make sure you are all in school everyday for your class to be in with a chance to win!


Bark & Read week 2

This week we met Tom. He is a black and white Lurcher and he is 5 years old. He has been in the dogs home for about a year. He was really friendly and he seemed very relaxed listening to us read.


Melting chocolate in science!

Today, Year 1 were investigating the properties of different kinds of chocolate! We looked at how chocolate is made, then we examined the differences between white chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate. Obviously, to really investigate the chocolates thoroughly, we had to do a taste test too! We let the chocolates melt on our tongue to see if we could taste which kinds of chocolate had the most milk and the most cocoa, as that might affect how fast they melt! Why don’t you try it at home with your parents/carers and let us know what your results are!

Bark and Read

We are happy that Bark and Read with Merseyside Dogs Home has started again. Some of our children will be taking part as readers this half term, getting even more time to read and the chance to meet our visiting dogs.


Shylowen Stables

Week 3 at Shylowen stables: We groomed our horses and Willis got some plaits! We learned how to lead a horse with a head rope and long ropes. The long ropes involve steering the horse while behind it, so it was a very different experience! We used great team work!
