We've been making some funny faces using the 2D shapes we've been learning about. We wonder if you can make any at home?

Year 5 Jodrell Bank Visit

Date: 11th Oct 2019 @ 8:06am

Year 5 had lots of fun exploring space and learning about the life of an astronaut on their trip to Jodrell Bank this week. We learnt all about our British astronaut Tim Peake and the training he had to undertake for his mission on the International Space Station. We also had a competition to see who could perform the best moon landing using a raw egg! The children worked brilliantly in their groups and created some fanatastic landing vessels using string, paper, balloons and cotton wool. Well done Year 5!

Y5 Enterprise Project

Date: 3rd Oct 2019 @ 4:32pm

Year 5 worked on enterprise project ideas with Natalie from St Helens Chamber this morning - this involved learning facts and figures about the town we live in, how companies brand products to sell, discussing fundraising activties and telling us all about the charity we will be helping to raise money for: Hope House, a place for homeless people to eat, shower and clean their clothes. 

We have had some fantastic, creative ideas! Once we have agreed on our fundraising projects we will share them!

European Day of Languages

Date: 3rd Oct 2019 @ 10:32am

Year 2 worked hard on developing their geographical skills during European Day of Languages. The children looked at a map of Europe; talked about the different languages and cultures and then located each country on a map.

More Experiments in FS!

Date: 1st Oct 2019 @ 8:26am

This week our Science Experiment was to fill a bag with water and stick some sharp pencils through it! The children thought it would "explode" or "pop" but it actually did nothing! (until we took the pencils out!)


One of the bags did already have a little hole so it leaked through there so we are going to retry this tomorrow with a leakproof bag!

Viking Workshop

Date: 30th Sep 2019 @ 4:31pm

The children were very lucky to have a workshop delivered by Gary the Viking on Friday.

It was a fantastic day. The children took part in a range of activities.

European Day of Languages

Date: 27th Sep 2019 @ 11:13am

European Day of Languages

We came to school dressed in red, white and blue because we are learning to speak French this year.

To launch our new MFL we enjoyed lots of different activities. Our favourite was tasting different French foods such as: baguettes, crepes, croissants, brioches and different French cheeses. Yum! Yum!

Change Your Mindset

Date: 27th Sep 2019 @ 10:35am


To start our new year in Year 6 we have been thinking about having a growth mindset.

We did different activities to challenge our mindsets.

We now understand the difference between having a fixed and a growth mindset.

Nursery Singing for French Day!!

Baby Zorg knows he is in England

Date: 26th Sep 2019 @ 2:31pm

This week we have been learning a little more about The United Kingdom so we can send a message to Baby Zorg's mum and dad.

We have been able to use a map and a globe to identify the four countries of The United Kingdom - England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.  We have also been able to name their capital cities - London, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast.

Then we have used directional language such as near, far, next to, up, down, left and right to describe the position of the countries.  Some of us used a big map to help us ... it was fun!

Aliens Love Underpants ...

Date: 26th Sep 2019 @ 2:23pm

This week in Year 1 we have been working together to listen to the story of 'Aliens Love Underpants'.

After we had listened to the story we had to work together to sequence the events in the story - so that we knew the beginning, middle and end of the story.

Baking with Mrs Bloxham!

Date: 25th Sep 2019 @ 7:32am

The children have shown a real interest in cooking and baking, so Mrs Bloxham helped them make some apple crumble (with custard!) They really enjoyed themselves and it was really tasty too!!

Stay and Play (and Read!)

Date: 24th Sep 2019 @ 5:34pm

We've had a fantastic time at Stay and Play. A huge thanks to all the parents who have come and stayed, we hope you've had fun seeing what your child gets up to in school! 

Place Value

Date: 22nd Sep 2019 @ 9:42am

Year 3 have settled into the juniors well. In Maths, we have been looking at Place value and number lines to 1000. The children worked in pairs, finding numbers to 1000 on a number line.

They used place value cards and counters to understand the value of each digit.

On Thursday and Friday, we added and subtracted 1, 10 and 100 to a 2 and 3 digit number. 

Roman Trip to Chester!

Date: 20th Sep 2019 @ 3:37pm

 Roman Trip to Chester 

On Thursday, we went to the old Roman fortress of Dewa (Chester). After a morning of fact finding, archaeology work, and dressing up as Romans, we headed outside to the old Roman walls. We each had a Roman shield and were taught different formations that the Roman army would form and what their equipment was called. Mr Leather and Mrs Bradbury were turned into gladiators and had a fight but our Roman leader ended up executing Theo. It was a great day and we all can’t believe that we live so close to the Roman Fortress of Dewa.

Date: 19th Sep 2019 @ 3:50pm

This afternoon we worked together on a bit of baking!

Thomas Farrinor- the baker who started the Great Fire of London in 1666, was believed to be making some cakes which caused the fire. Take a look at our own version of his cakes! 

Alien Spaceship Lost - Crash Landing at Lyme

Date: 17th Sep 2019 @ 7:46pm

Year 1 came in to school today to find out that an alien spaceship had been seen in the sky above St Helens.

Mrs Cribb needed Y1 to investigate as when she came into school she heard a big bang outside!  Year 1 explored the school field and found evidence of the spaceship crash ... then Miss Burns read a letter to us that had been written in an alien language.  It was from Mr and Mrs Zorg.  It said:-

Greetings Earthlings

Can you help us?  Our son Baby Zorg was out exploring in his spaceship and has not come home.  If you see him can you help him find his way home?

From, Mr and Mrs Zorg

Year 1 have decided they need to take care of Baby Zorg and will help him find his way home by learning all about our local area so they can send a message to Mr and Mrs Zorg!

Problem Solving in Year 1

Date: 17th Sep 2019 @ 7:32pm

Year 1 have been investigating maths problems today. 

They worked in groups to solve a problem using their number bonds to 10.  Some children used practical equipment to help them.

Great teamwork and problem solving Year 1.


Year 5 Space

Date: 17th Sep 2019 @ 4:45pm

Year 5 have been investigating how the Earth moves in relation to the sun. We took advantage of some September sunshine and marked our shadows, which were cast on the playground, at different intervals during the day. The children then measured and observed the differences in the shadows and used this to draw conclusions about how the Earth moves.

Super investigating!


First Days in Foundation Stage

Date: 13th Sep 2019 @ 10:00am

We have had a brilliant first few days in Foundation Stage (with a couple of tears!)

The children have been settling really well in to the their new classes and we are so proud of them!

Welcome To Year One

Date: 8th Sep 2019 @ 3:56pm

Year 1 have had a fabulous first few days in their new class. They have been so brilliant that all the class were 'achievers' for being 'superstars' in our Achievement Assembly on Friday.  They also had the best attendance - so SAM (School Attendance Matters) the Monkey will be in Y1 next week too. 

They have been learning lots of new routines and understanding what it is like to be in Key Stage One.  In their learning they have been exploring the continuous provision areas as well as counting (in our Maths) and understanding the importance of sharing through our PATHs lessons.

Miss Burns, Miss Costello and Sue are looking forward to the year ahead.

Thank You Year 1 for a great first week!


What makes a sunny day?

Date: 22nd Jul 2019 @ 10:40pm

Today Y1 learned about why the UK has more hours of sun in the summer than we do in the winter (A whopping 9 hours more each day). Y1 explored how our shadows move throughout the day and how to record data and interpret data from a table and a pictograph. Children recorded their shadows throughout the day, marking their new positions each time and making prediction as to where they thought their shadow would be next. Y1 then explored how planet Earth moves using globes and replica suns. Sensational science Y1!

Student Voice presentation - Governor's meeting July 2019

Date: 18th Jul 2019 @ 3:59pm

Our Student Voice groups have made us all very proud this week! Members of the Student Council, Eco Team and Sports Council along with our Rights-Respecting  and Online Safety Ambassadors presented their achievements this year, as well as their plans for next year, to the whole school on Monday (this assembly was also attended by a special visitor who was assessing us for the Inclusion Quality Mark). A small group of them then presented to our governing body on Tuesday evening. Student Voice is definitely a strength at Lyme!

Problem solving with capacity and water!

Date: 18th Jul 2019 @ 8:07am

We spent Wednesday exploring different problems using water - how could we quickly fill the different buckets, could we do it from far away, could we fill it without losing any of the water?
