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!


RE assembly – “Welcome”

Thank you to everyone who came to or contributed to our lovely assembly this morning. Children from all classes were proud to show what they had been learning about Baptism and Confirmation. We are looking forward to learning about Islam next week, which will end in another special assembly next Friday. Do come and join us!


Exciting electricity!

In Science, the children were in awe of the endless possibilities of making an electric circuit. Independently, they generated questions such as ‘If there is an open switch in the circuit, it will not be complete, so will the lamp still light up?’ ‘If you have two lamps and one cell in the circuit, would the brightness of the lamps be dimmer?’. As problem solvers, they designed and created their own circuits and just look at our proud faces!!


A fantastic poetry workshop from LJMU students

On Wednesday morning, Mr Delaney and Mr Kehoe from LJMU came to year 5 to teach us about poetry. We explored it through drama by hot seating, drawing the characters, de-coding the poem using a dictionary and rehearsing. We discussed the importance of intonation, facial expressions and actions which helped us with our amazing performance at the end!

Well done year 5 and LJMU students!


Fantastic Families Assembly!

Last Friday we enjoyed a wonderful “Show and tell” assembly to mark the end of our RE topic, “Families”. Each class shared what they had been learning in a creative way, and it was wonderful that so many of our families came to celebrate with us! Thank you to all who came and to all the children and staff for their lovely contributions.


Science and PE Week in Year 5

We have had a fabulous science and PE week. We have done lots of things.

On Tuesday, we did an exercise class with the coaches from Pure Gym. It was exhausting but so much fun at the same time. We then had our UK Military Schools in the afternoon and we did a speed test to check our fitness.

On Wednesday, we did a whole school workout with Mr Lowry and Mr Hignett and all the other teachers and staff. We could feel all of our achy muscles (DOMS) from the day before.

On Thursday we had our usual PE lesson with Mr Hignett and in the afternoon we did science. We look at the bones in our bodies and created our very own skeletons.

Today, we have done Yoga with Mrs Routledge and PE with Miss Waters. We practiced our basket ball skills and passing games.

Such a fun week!

Bark and Read 14th June 2017

Today Zella came to visit us. She is 4 years old.  Her breed is a lurcher. She is very calm and her story is sad. She was abandoned by her owners with her family who were another dog and their two puppies who are 1 year old.

She was very calm and chilled. We thought she might be a little bit nervous of us, but she seemed happy. She is friendly, she liked to listen to us. She was very well behaved.IMG_3981 IMG_3982 IMG_3983 IMG_3985 IMG_3988 IMG_3991 IMG_3992 IMG_3993


Bark and Read 7.6.17

Today Anthony brought Lisa the Lurcher to come and meet us. Lisa is about 3 years old and Alexie said her coat was the same colours and pattern as the painted dogs at Chester Zoo!

Lisa was a very chilled dog indeed! She was friendly and very relaxed. She seemed to find our reading very calming because she lay back listening to us, and she nearly fell asleep.

Greek Shields

Today in history, we have been learning all about Ancient Greek Warfare. Can you remember why Ancient Greeks needed both an army and a navy?

We made amazing shields complete with mythical creatures to scare off our enemies.
