Tree Planting

Date: 10th Dec 2018 @ 4:56pm

On Friday, Year 3 were lucky enough to be asked to plant trees in our school field. The Mersey Forest organisation and one of St Helens Park Rangers came to help us. We planted many saplings which will grow to help our environment.

Tree planting with the Mersey Forest.

Date: 7th Dec 2018 @ 3:31pm

This morning children in year 1 took part in a tree planting session run by the Mersey Forest Organisation. Children worked in pairs digging holes and planting over 50 saplings. Year 1 then wrote fantastic thankyou letters which we will be emailing across to the Mersey Forest Organisation over the weekend. Well done Year 1, super hard work!

A special visitor in Foundation Stage!

Date: 4th Dec 2018 @ 9:17am

We came into a great big mess in Foundation Stage this morning, but the children didn’t make it (for a change!). Instead we discovered that we’ve got our own special Elf! He’s come to watch over us and check we are all being good (which we all are anyway except Mrs Bloxham) and trying our hardest.

Eco-Council meeting

Date: 23rd Nov 2018 @ 2:12pm

In this week's Eco-Council meeting, Scott (Lyme Park's Ranger) came to talk to us about ideas to develop the park area. He asked the group to look at a map of the park and think about how we can help him to improve the signs and encourage more people to visit.

In the Spring/Summer term he will be asking the Eco-Council to lead a competition across school to design some art work for the new signs.

Old toy sale for Pudsey.

Date: 16th Nov 2018 @ 4:15pm

After learning about the BBC Children in need appeal, children in Year 1 and 2 decided to set up a last minute 'unloved toy shop' in aid of the charity. Thank you to all the children and families who all pulled together and donated toys and books for the shop. Key stage 1 raised a fantastic £50.00, which will be donated to this years appeal alongside the schools own clothes day donations. All unsold donations will be donated this weekend to Willowbrook Hospice.

Here a few snaps of us having a good time at the Halloween disco! It was rather SPOOKtacular! 

Toy exploration.

Date: 6th Nov 2018 @ 3:58pm

Today in year 1, children spent time looking at, using and discussing old and new toys. It was extremely interesting to hear children talk about how they thought their toys worked. Some children thought spinning tops were an early form of bottle flipping, and some children thought our stick and hoop game was some kind of instrument. After 30 mins of exploration, the uses of these toys were finally revealed. I have a feeling when we write our comparisons, later this week, that new toys may be the overwhelming winners. Great exploring Year 1.

Foundation Stage’s Autumn Walk

Date: 6th Nov 2018 @ 2:16pm

We had a fantastic time walking around the local area, looking at how the leaves are changing and falling off the trees. We got to see some different animals but the highlight was getting to stroke Dolly’s horse at the stables, so thank you Dolly and Mum!

Why did Cinderella not use a hoover?

Date: 2nd Nov 2018 @ 4:08pm

Today children thought about the tough job poor Cinderella had, cleaning her step mum's house. We looked at ways Cinderella could have speeded up her tasks. We replaced our broom with a brush and found this much easier. We then decided to use a hoover, which was definitely the quickest way to clean our carpet. Children were asked, why does Cinderella not just use a hoover? After a class discussion the children began to understand that the story of Cinderella was a long time ago, and unfortunately hoovers or vacuum cleaners were not invented. Year 1 then looked at other old items and what new items had replaced them, from old tin baths and carts to modern day cars and indoor bathrooms. Great understanding Year 1!

Singing in Nursery

We’ve got some fantastic singers in Nursery, don’t you agree?

Halloween in Foundation Stage!

Date: 2nd Nov 2018 @ 11:02am

We’ve had a fantastic day celebrating Halloween in Foundation Stage. The children all look fantastic (and scary!). We’ve played party games, showed off our best dance moves and eaten a sweet (or two).

Happy Halloween!

Date: 31st Oct 2018 @ 9:39pm

Today year 1 loved learning about halloween traditions from around the world. Children discussed the recent Disney movie 'Coco' and made Mexican style masks representitive of the things they regard as special to their own life. 

Art Day

Date: 29th Oct 2018 @ 9:38pm

Year 3 looked at the famous artist Claude Monet. We found out lots of interesting facts and then created our own version of Monet's garden using finger prints and a range of colours. We produced some very effective pieces of art.

Well done Y6

Aliens love Lyme!

Date: 19th Oct 2018 @ 4:41pm

Today children read our class text 'Aliens Love Underpants' by Claire Freedman for the last time. Together we discussed other Claire Freedman stories and how we would compare this story to them. Children were excited to plan and write a book review for this text. We discussed how some children may like the story whilst others may not. Children shared their favourite parts from the story, the characters in it and the setting it takes place in. Some children also discussed their favourite illustrations from the book. Great work Yr1 you made fabulous book reviews. Claire Freedman will be happy to know Yr1 reviewed this book very highly.

The final farewell from planet Earth.

Date: 19th Oct 2018 @ 4:09pm

After his 6 week visit to Lyme Primary School, it was finally time for children to say goodbye to Zorg. Children planned the afternoon building their previously designed spaceships. Children tested their ships and predicted if they would move well are not move at all. Children also begun to develop their collaborative learning skills, working and sharing together and negotiating with tools and ideas. Well done Year 1 and thankyou to all our parents who helped to support this lesson by bringing in lots of resources for us to use.

A huge well done to all the children for their incredible work this half term! Thank you to everyone who came to see the work on display in the hall. 

Back to space Zorg!

Date: 12th Oct 2018 @ 7:33pm

The children were a little bit sad in Yr 1 today, as we begin to think of ways to help Zorg return to space. Children were set the task of  designing a new ship to help Zorg return home. We worked in carousel, looking for ideas in Zorg's spaceship wreckage, listing all the resources we need for our ideas, and then planning, designing and sharing our ideas for a new rocket ship.  Zorg is very much looking forward to the children making their ships next week.

Year 1 love 'Aliens Love Underpants'.

Date: 12th Oct 2018 @ 7:18pm

This week in year 1 children sequenced the story 'Aliens Love Underpants' by Claire Freedman. Children were challenged to find the beginning, middle and end of the story and then retell it from memory as best as they could.  We had so much fun working in gorups, discussing, debating and then final agreeing on a sequence of pictures from the our class text. Great job year 1!
