Whittle Cup!

Date: 13th Jun 2018 @ 4:14pm

The Whittle Cup is a touch-rugby tournament that has been running for over 10 years now and is held at Newton Storm Cricket Club. 

Today, we sent a team to compete with some of the best young players in St Helens. After winning our first game and  losing our second in a closely fought contest, the team were full of optimism. We went on to win 3 more games after that and narrowly missed qualifying for the knockout stages. 

The team behaved superbly and even got to meet and play with some of the Saints players. We all had a great day!

Thank you to the parents who came and supported the team as well!

Why were the Ancient Egyptians Awesome?

Date: 27th Apr 2018 @ 3:56pm

To start our topic on the Ancient Egyptians we made bread and Papyrus paper. The Ancient Egyptians had bread with almost every meal. Year 4 mixed and kneaded the ingredients and then shaped their bread into their own unique shape. We had a mixture of plaits and rolls.

In the afternoon, we made Papyrus paper which we will be using to write like an Egyptian. It was a messy day but lots of fun.
