Forest School

Date: 9th Jun 2023 @ 1:38pm

This was the first lesson of our summer sessions.  The  children were introduced to the summer season and  looked for the signs of summer all around them. Then the children went on a hunt through the forest to find a feather.  After this they crushed up blackberries to make their own ink and used the feather quill to draw with. They had lots of fun crushing up the berries and using their quills.

Today, we have been visited by the school nurse to help us learn a little more about our Learning Question:-

Why should we eat well and look after our teeth?

It was fun!

End of SATs

Date: 12th May 2023 @ 3:44pm

The Year 6's celebrated today after a long week of SATs and rightly so as they have done themselves and their teachers proud. They have tried their best and worked really hard. If I could give them points for perseverance, I would. They deserve a relaxed and restful weekend - well done to them all. 

Forest School

Date: 9th May 2023 @ 11:56am

For our last Forest School of the spring, the children took part in a scavenger hunt.  Each time they found a flower or an insect on their card they were given a bead to thread onto their string.  At the end of the hunt all the children had managed to collect enough beads to make a necklace.

Our Scholastic book fair raised £381.11 for school.  We can now use this money to buy some new books for our school library.  Our reading ambassadors asked their classes about the types of books that they would like.  During our meeting today we shared ideas, searched the Scholastic website to find exciting, new books and completed an order form. 

We look forward to reading the new books once they arrive. 

Y2 Rugby Festival

Date: 24th Apr 2023 @ 3:39pm

Today, Year 2 attended a rugby festival which was led by the Saints Community Development Team.  The children took part in lots of fun rugby activities.  They were great team players and enjoyed cheering each other on.  The coaches were very impressed with the behaviour of the children and their I CAN do it attitude. 

Here are some of the things that the children said they enjoyed about the festival: 

'I liked tackling and pushing people over'

'I liked it when we played a mini game of rugby and we had to score. 

'I liked it when we jumped over the hurdles and we had to lie on the floor. It was funny'



Forest School

Date: 21st Apr 2023 @ 4:47pm

During Forest School this week the children were developing their observational and navigational skills. Firstly, they had to look around the area to find objects that shouldn't be in the forest area. Then they had to find and follow the arrows to find the treasure.  All the children enjoyed finding the gold.  

Sean Perkins visits Lyme!

Date: 19th Apr 2023 @ 3:30pm

This afternoon author Sean Perkins visited Lyme to share his latest book with us 'Oscar and Ben - The Birthday Party'. 

Sean introduced the children to the main characters Oscar and Ben but first they had to wake them up from their sleeping bag. Once the cats Oscar and Ben were awake they sat in our classroom and listened to the story too!  Oscar and Ben ventured into the forest to celebrate the birthday of their good friend Mrs Hen.  

The story was exciting and entertaining and Sean even added special sound effects.  At the end of the session Sean played his guitar and we sang a song about the story. 

The children's faces lit up during the story telling session showing us that our children really do share a love of reading.  Thank you to Sean for providing our youngest children with such a memorable learning experience. 


Year 1 Lyme Park walk

Date: 16th Apr 2023 @ 5:38pm

Year 1 followed Park Ranger Scott on a tour through Lyme Park. We looked at the trees, listened to the birds, looked at the cloud formations and visited the pond. Ranger Scott spoke about the dangers of entering the water. It was EXTREMELY muddy along our route and this was very challenging! 

Year 1 Mother's Day celebration assembly

Date: 16th Apr 2023 @ 5:26pm

Year 1 performed a beautiful Mother's Day celebration assembly for our mums and others who care for us. We all spoke clearly and loved performing our special songs before handing out our treats to our mums with a hug! 

Yr 1 visit to Chester Zoo

Date: 16th Apr 2023 @ 5:10pm

What a fun filled day Year 1 had at Chester Zoo! We walked our legs off but saw so many different animals around the park. We also had a very informative, hands-on workshop with one of the keepers to learn more about 'Animals and their Habitats'. The children's behaviour was exemplary and a true credit to our school. 

Forest School

Date: 3rd Apr 2023 @ 4:33pm

During Forest School the children were asked to recall the names of the different flowers and trees they'd looked at last week.  The nursery children then played a stick game where they had to think of different uses for a stick. They then went on to make a bird's nest and we're pleased to discover chocolate eggs in them when they went back to look at them.

The reception children were tying knots again and had to make a fishing rod using a stick and a small magnet. 

Foundation Stage Easter Bonnet Parade

Y3 Learning Walls Spring Term 2 2023

Another busy half term for Y3 - take at look at our Learning Walls.

Some fantastic volunteers from Speke Hall came into visit our Year 6 children today to tell them all about the Tudor period. They brought with them exapmles of Tudor dress and items of food and medicines from these times. As well as this, they had a wealth of information around this historic period. The children clearly enjoyed the stories and gruesome facts; they were engaged and superb role models for our school. They also got to make pomanders; small scented oranges that the Tudors used to keep them safe and mask all the vile smells there would have been at the time.

During the month of Ramadan, Muslims won't eat or drink during the hours of daylight. This is called fasting. Children are not expected to fast until they reach the age of around 13/14. However, one of the children in Year 4 has made the incredibly mature choice to fast this year. We are all very proud of Mikaeel's dedication and I am really pleased with how supportive the class has been with him during this time. 

Today, Mikaeel decided to challenge Year 4 to resist temptation just like he must do every day. He placed sweets into small envelopes with everyone's name on them and told everyone that they must try to resist temptation until 7.36PM (the time of sunset today).

Hopefully, everyone is able to resist in support of Mikaeel!


Forest School

Date: 24th Mar 2023 @ 8:15am

This week at Forest School the children once again looked for signs of spring and found different flowers and trees.  After the exploration of the area, the nursery children went on to make a Sistrum.  The reception children were learning to tie knots and they made a shaker.

Y3 Science Investigation: Does the length of your arm/leg affect how far you can jump and throw?

Date: 18th Mar 2023 @ 3:05pm

This half term, Year 3 have been learning about why we have a skeleton and the names of the bones in our bodies. We were asked to investigate the following questions:

*Do people with longer legs jump further?

*Can people with longer arms throw further? 

We worked in small groups to plan and carry out our investigation. Next week we will be using a spreadsheet on Purple Mash to create a graph of our results and then writing our conclusion in an email to Mr. Leather (our PE Leader).

Forest School

Date: 17th Mar 2023 @ 11:18am

This week was the first of our spring Forest School sessions. Mr Brooks pointed out the different signs of spring and encouraged the children to look for some too. 

The nursery children then went on to make a wooden gingerbread man and the reception children went on a scavenger hunt. They had to remember and collect the same objects which Mr Brooks had shown to them earlier.
