Year 4 news...

Knock-out time in our World Cup competition!

Year 4 and Reception’s top two groups met today in the first knock-out stage of our World Cup penalty shoot out competition! We had great fun and the children showed wonderful sporting attitudes. Egypt (from Reception) and Portugal (from Year 4) are through to the quarter finals! Well done everyone!


Year 4- Science Lesson: Exploring flowering and non-flowering plants!

This term we have been looking at the unit Environment, Ecology and Evolution. The children are learning about living things and exploring how plants reproduce. Today, we enjoyed a practical lesson in Year 4 where we made playdough bees and ‘pollinated’ apple blossom flowers. The children were extremely enthused throughout the lesson, and we are going to video the process in next week’s lesson. Watch this space! Miss O’ Sullivan.


Crosby Hall Day 1

We have had the best day! When the children arrived they had to make their own beds and unpack. For lunch we had soup and sandwiches, and a fruit platter for afters. After this, we spent some time on the adventure course – this was amazing – so much fun and a great challenge. We were exhausted so we had a little break, squash and a biscuit before continuing the fun. Half of us went to a pottery class, the rest of had a swap to cross! We’ve just had our tea, spaghetti bolognese and garlic bread, followed by syrup sponge and custard!



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!

Lava lamps in Science club

We had so much fun making lava lamps this afternoon, we learned about chemical reactions and the density of different liquids.

This was our last club with the science students at Hope, we’ve had an amazing time! Thank you!



Maths Olympics in Year 4

This morning, Year 4 held the first ever Maths Olympics! We split into different teams to represent countries from around the world, just like at the Olympics, and then competed to see who could solve the most maths problems on our obstacle course! Our teams had to work together, use lots of mathematical language and know lots about analogue and digital time, including 24 time, to complete the challenges as fast as possible!


Science Afternoon at St Michael’s

I must say, these children make me so proud, without fail, every time I take them out. Their behaviour and manners are impeccable. It was great to see you learning and exploring classification and adaptations too! Thank you Year 3 and Year 4. Mrs Davies


A Wonderful Afternoon at the Philharmonic


We we had a fabulous time listening to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra this afternoon. So many of our children told me how ‘lucky’ they felt on the way home. What a privilege!


Maths Trails at Liverpool Hope University

This morning, Years 3 and 4 went to Liverpool Hope University to take on some special maths challenges. The trainee teachers at Hope had planned a range of outdoor maths trails to test our maths skills! The children proved to be great problem solvers and we loved the maths trails! Well done, everyone!


Hot rocks and fossils


Good to see science club exploring different types of rocks this afternoon. They used hot rocks and melting wax to write their names. Also, it was a great exploration of Jurassic fossils and the imprints they made.
