More Eco fun in the sunshine!

Yet another lovely Eco Club session today! We made the most of our beautiful school grounds: being creative with environmental art, adding compost to help our potatoes grow, blowing bubbles, and even planting a horse chestnut tree which has been grown in school from a conker! We wonder how big it will grow…


Party time!

We enjoyed a little garden party today to join in with the celebrations for the royal wedding at the weekend. We made our own sandwiches, and had a few crisps and cakes too! Over the weekend children will be writing their own news reports.


Check out our new mash-up!

Our fabulous school choir and Resonate Singers have teamed up to record an original mash-up, consisting of Havana, Seven Nation Army and Smooth! We can’t wait to perform this at the iSing Festival this year! Let us know what you think!

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!

The Fresh Prince of Year 5!

The amazing Year 5 have been working on their rap skills this term in their music lessons! This week, they became recording artists, recording their version of the classic rap song The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air on GarageBand – brilliant!

As if that wasn’t enough, we decided to make our own rap video! Check it out on the link below!

Year 1 trip to Formby National Trust Park

Year 1 have had an amazing day today at Formby National Trust Red Squirrel Park. We had a lovely long walk along the beach and through the woods, looking for different animals and their habitats. We saw lots of creatures on our nature walk, and we even saw a rare red squirrel eating its lunch! We stopped for a quick lunch break and then decided to make some fantastic environmental art structures and and see how many different kinds of leaves we could identify on our trail! It was such a fun day and we learned so much about different woodland creatures and their habitats. Well done, Year 1!



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!


Our prize winners trip to the stables

First we learned how to be around the horses, then we got to brush them.

Then we put on our helmets….

Then we all got to ride them. We took turns to ride Thunder and Rolo.

Everyone at Shy Lowen said thank you for raising money for them and we had a lot of fun!
