Netball World Cup

Our Year 5 and 6’s who attend our after school Netball club were lucky enough to attend the Netball World Cup 2019 at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool! We saw Fiji beat Sri Lanka, who had the tallest ever player (6ft11!) and we cheered as Samoa won against Singapore. We were all so inspired watching all of the amazing players and can’t wait to get back on the netball pitch to try out some new moves we’ve taken from these world class athletes!

School Council Meeting

Last week, our school council met to discuss important events and issues within our school.

The school council is an essential part of our school community, feeding back opinions and discussions from peers to Mrs Hayes, our school council leader. Mrs Hayes then takes any important issues or suggestions to our school leadership.

Keep up the good work guys!

Year 3 Martin Mere Trip

Last week year 3 enjoyed a trip to Martin Mere to learn about wildfowl and their habitats. The children had the opportunity to learn about the insects found in wetlands by capturing and examining the contents of pondwater. The children also fed the wildfowl, as well as had some fun on the adventure playground.

Athletics Training Begins!

Summer term is the time of year when we start to take our sports activities outside, and this week we took our year 5 & 6 athletes to Wavertree Athletics Centre to embark on a series of training days.

The children really rose to the occasion, taking each and every new activity in their stride and focusing on improving their personal bests.

Good luck in the tournament!

Extension Grand Opening!

On Friday 29th of March, as Canon Todd remarked, the grand exit from the EU didn’t happen, but there was a grand occasion at our school when our new extension was declared officially open!

Amongst the guests were some of our children, councillors, council representatives, staff and governors. Once the opening ceremony finished, guests were provided with tea, coffee, juice, biscuits and cakes. They then had a chance to explore our new building, where videos were playing of the construction of the building, as well as our infant building and historic photographs.
