Forest School

Date: 26th Jan 2023 @ 7:41pm

This week at Forest School was all about A 'Winter's Web'.  Firstly, the children were reminded of the season and were encouraged to discuss what they could see and hear. Next, they  explored the area and played the 'Finding Food' game.

Mr Brooks then introduced them to the giant spider's web.  He explained to them that when walking in the woods, we can come across the glistening threads of a spider's web and he had recreated a giant one for the children.  They then had to try and get through the web without being caught.  They had to figure out whether to go over or under the ropes. It was quite challenging.  

Lego Workshop

Date: 19th Jan 2023 @ 4:54pm

Year 5 enjoyed their Lego workshop which gave them chance to develop their design and technology skills to create a fairground ride. 

This is what some of the children thought of the workshop.


Thursday has been a great experience for Year 5 we have engineered Lego with codes. We made a fairground ride with Lego man Nick it was indescribable. I would rate it 10/10.


It was really fun to build and it was really cool how we could make it move and decorate it however we wanted. I give it 10/10. It was very intresting but it was a bit hard to make.  We made a vertispin and it was really cool how it went up and down.



Forest School

This week in Forest School the children were able to experience the winter weather firsthand because it had snowed.  We took every opportunity to explore the snow- making tracks, observing it and feeling it.  The children were all really excited. 

After that, the children made Fairy Fires.   Mr. Brooks explained all about how fire is useful to humans but it can also be very dangerous.  The children then had a go at using the strikers to light their own Fairy Fires.  All the children had their own fire either lit by themselves or with help.  It was fascinating watching the fires.

Reading Ambassador Meeting

Date: 18th Jan 2023 @ 10:55am

In our reading ambassador meeting today we made plans for National Storytelling Week which will be held on the week beginning Monday 30th January. The children shared why stories and storytelling is important.  They came up with ideas of events that we could do to promote a love of reading and storytelling.  The ambassadors are planning to hold a whole school assembly, will be visiting classes to tell stories and they will even be telling stories on the playground at playtimes! 

Escape from Pompeii

Date: 17th Jan 2023 @ 8:11pm

As part of our English Learning, we have been reading the text "Escape from Pompeii".

This week, we have taken part in some drama activities - Conscience Alley (where we were either Tranio or Livia and had to give our reasons for leaving Pompeii). Then we worked in groups, to take part in role-play - acting out the scences from the story.

It was fun and we were able to understand how the characters in the story felt.  

Forest School

This week at Forest School the children were learning about winter. They found out that during winter the birds often go hungry because there is not much food around for them. All of the children made a bird feeder to hang in their garden.

Y2 Art

Date: 13th Jan 2023 @ 2:10pm

In Year 2 today the children explored texture by creating rubbings. They used their rubbings to create a 'frottage' collage in the style of the artist Max Ernst. They created beautiful animal pieces of art. 

Y3 Roman Trip - Chester

Date: 10th Jan 2023 @ 4:12pm

Today, Y3 have experienced life as a Roman in the Roman City of Chester.

We visited the Deva Roman Discovery Centre - where we learnt about life as a Roman and how they invaded Britain.

Then, we got to march around the streets of Chester - as a Roman soldier - whilst we visited The Roman Gardens and The Ampitheatre. 

It was fun!

Y3 Roman Forts

Date: 8th Jan 2023 @ 10:46am

Linked to their History learning, Year 3 have researched, designed, constructed and evaluated Roman Forts in Design Technology. They developed lots of different skills, including using nets to made 3D shapes to use in their constructions. We were so impressed with the children's team work when making their finished products. Well done, Year 3!

Y3 Learning - Autumn 2 2022

Date: 15th Dec 2022 @ 5:09pm

Year 3 have been very busy this half - term.

Take a look at some of our Learning Walls to answer questions such as:-

RE: Why is the prophet Muhammad (pbuh) an example for Muslims?

PSHRE: What keeps us safe?

Geography: Why is the weather hard to predict? 

English: We have been writing Non-Chronological Reports all about whales.

Maths: We have been extending our knowledge of addition and subtraction.


Date: 14th Dec 2022 @ 4:41pm

The children designed their own investigations to discover how shadows changed in relation to their proximity to a light source. The children considered the equipment they would need; the independent variable (what they would change); the controlled variables (what they would keep the same); and the dependent variable (what they would measure). They had some fanatstic scientific ideas and had lots of fun putitng their investigations into practice. 

Timestable Chatter Boxes

Date: 12th Dec 2022 @ 8:43am

Timestable Chatter Boxes


During year 4, the children must learn all of their timestables from the ones to the twelves. We are always thinking of creative ways to do this from board games, whole class games, bingo, songs, rhymes and now, we have decided to make timestable chatterboxes. The children followed the instructions that were given to them very carefully and created some lovely chatterboxes. After this, each child listed down the eight multiplication facts that they struggle with most and wrote them on. Now, all that was left was to play and practise!

Ready Steady Green!

Date: 6th Dec 2022 @ 9:27am

The Year 6 children took part in the 'Ready Steady Green' Eco workshop yesterday; delivered by Tracey from the St Helens Chamber. They took part in lots of fun activities and learnt that we all have the power to do our bit to stop climate change. They picked up lots of knew vocabulary and ideas to develop their understanding of climate change and made a pledge of one thing they would change to help lower the methane and CO2 emissions which are having a devastating effect on our environment. They were also able to make their own key rings out of recycled tshirts. 


Super fun and informative!

Thank you Tracey!

Electrical Circuits

Date: 30th Nov 2022 @ 9:21am

Electrical Circuits

Today, Y4 have been investigating to see whether materials are a conductor or an insulator. We used knowledge that we have been taught from previous lessons about complete and incomplete circuits to create a suitable investigation. 

Children discovered that if they made a complete circuit and checked the lightbulb worked that would prove that the electricity was able to flow around the circuit. They decided that they would need to create a gap and then put different materials in the gap to see if they would allow electricity to pass through them. 

The children made predictions first of all as to which materials would be conductors and which would be insulators, Then, they tested them! They absoloutley loved testing the materials and seeing whether the light bulbs lit up or not!

Story time

Date: 22nd Nov 2022 @ 3:28pm

Our Year 6 reading ambassador enjoyed sharing one of his favourite childhood stories in Year 2 today.  The children enjoyed the way that the story was read to them with expression and actions.
