World Poetry Day 2019

Date: 22nd Mar 2019 @ 1:40pm

To celebrate World Poetry Day, Mrs Roberts' Year 6 writing group have studied  the poem 'Balloons' by Sylvia Plath. We have performed it; analysed the language and discussed the poet's feelings when writing the poem. Following this, we looked in detail at candle light and a daffodil - thinking about how we could personify them in the way that Sylvia Plath does a balloon. We are really proud of the poems we have created!

Can you solve the mystery of the Maya?

Date: 4th Mar 2019 @ 4:33pm

To finish off our topic in Year 6 we have enjoyed playing a version of the Mayan game Pok-a-Tok.

Pok-a-Tok was played by the Ancient Maya and is the oldest known team sport with a ball- invented over 3500 years ago. The losing team was usually sacrificed. Luckily for Year 6 we did not try this part of the game.

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!
