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!

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.


Year 4’s visit to Wahaca

Year 4 have had great fun tasting Mexican food in Wahaca today. We loved preparing and tasting different Mexican dishes such as Guacamole and avocado. We also got to to take some goodies home! ‘This is amazing’ – Ashamkh. Thank you to the lovely staff at Wahaca!  


The Great Battery Hunt!

Eco club keep busy whatever the weather! We have been designing posters to promote “The Great Battery Hunt”, a national initiative which we will be involved in in a few weeks time. Watch this space for more news!


Christmas music extravaganza!

This morning, we finished the term off in style with a spectacular music assembly! Every child from Year 1 to Year 6 performed, all playing instruments and singing, and some even performing their own compositions!

Year 5 started us off with a rock classic; Livin’ On a  Prayer by Bon Jovi! The children played their own compositions on the keyboards, flutes, clarinets and glockenspiels, playing 3 separate parts. We also had fantastic rock drumming from Sarah and Conner! What a great way to start the show!


Then Year 1 showed us their hip-hop skills, rapping a modified version of the Grandma Rap (we changed it to the Santa Rap!), including their very own Christmas-themed rhythmic phrases led by Anthony, Nouf, Aye and Kitty!



Year 2 and Year 3 performed together, Year 2 on the glockenspiels and Year 3 on the recorders. They sang and played This Little Light of Mine…and it was amazing!


Year 4 have started to learn the clarinets this term with Mrs Holland, and they already sound great, performing 2 pieces for us as a class. Well done!



The Year 5 flutes group performed next. This sounded lovely!


After that, it was the Year 6 flutes group’s turn, playing Away in a Manger beautifully!


Next, the Year 6 clarinets group played Silent Night. We all felt very Christmassy by this point!


The school choir performed after that, singing a song by Mr Larkin called This Christmastime, with solo singers (the incredible Erin, Lily, Jessie and Lily) and singing in 3 parts. It was fabulous!



Finally, Year 6 closed the show with an absolutely wonderful performance of I’ll Be There. We had a harmony section, solos from Erin, Lily, Viyan, Millie, Alexie, Ciennah, Kenzy, Jewan, Julio, Lily-Rae, Abby (not to mention Bader, Luke, Kieran and Brendan at the end), and children performing their compositions in 3 parts on the keyboards, glockenspiels, clarinets and flutes! It was a superb end to the assembly!




Year 4 Yoga!

Thanks so much to Mrs Routledge for taking us for Yoga this week! It was amazing! Healthy body, healthy mind!
