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!

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!


Poetry performances!

Today in English, we worked in groups to explore nouns and abstract nouns. We used dictionaries to define meanings, chose appropriate synonyms, up-levelled sentences and then finally performed our poems. Our teamwork was fantastic!



Arabic day

What a fantastic start to international week with Arabic Day. We have been very lucky to have had beautiful henna hand paintings, delicious food tasting and some excellent readings from Kareem and Yassin. We were also visited by girls from year 4 who talked about traditional clothing and jewellery. Thank you to all of our parents for helping!!


Micro teaching at Liverpool Hope University

What a fantastic morning at Liverpool Hope University! Our year 5 scientists were amazing at the micro teaching workshop. We have learnt so much about Forces and the scientific language that we are now using is great! Well done year 5!!



Today, year 5 had another visit from Carl from the unity theatre. In small groups, we explored some of our memories through drama. We also worked on our mapping skills by mapping out our favourite places in Liverpool. We’re really excited for next week’s workshop already!

Debating and drama in RE.

In RE, year 5 took part in a debate to argue whether or not Jesus should have helped Levi to be a morally good person. We then used drama to role play how we make the right choices and support others. 


DT club are making smoothies!

In DT club last week, we made delicious smoothies! We created our own recipes and decided what ingredients to buy. I think the favourite combination was strawberry, banana and mango!

Creating our own freeze frames

Year 5 had fun retelling the story-The Piano (Aidan Gibbons)- Film Narrative.
We created our own freeze frames using differnt scenes from the film.


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!
