Year 5 Football Tournament

Date: 9th Feb 2022 @ 5:09pm

Year 5 Football Tournament 

Today, year 5 and two pupils from year 4 participated in a football tournament. The children were respectful, showed good sportsmanship, manners and displayed plenty of footballing talent. After only losing one match in the group stages, we progressed to the semi-finals. We won the semi-final match after a fantastic goal from Nathan. Unfortunately, the final didn't go the same way and the children finished in second place! However, the children should be so proud of themselves after a fantastic effort all afternoon. 

Coming second out of sixteen other schools is something to be extremely proud of!

The Year of Reading

Date: 28th Jan 2022 @ 3:34pm

This week we had a special assembly to celebrate reading.  Each class has decorated their door to showcase their class novel and author for this half term. We have now set up a Reading Council and two ambassadors have been chosen as representatives for each class.  On Thursday we had our first meeting and came up with lots of exciting reading events that we would like to do over the coming months. 

Evie and Rosie in Key Stage 1 were excited to take home our TRENDING BOOK today - 'The Dragon with the Blazing Bottom' by Tom Fletcher. 

We can't wait to get dressed up for World Book Day that we will be celebrating on Friday 4th March. 

Eco challenge!

Date: 3rd Dec 2021 @ 10:24am

The Eco Action Team have been very busy over the past few weeks. Along with Mr Brooks, they have built some planters using old pallets and filled them wirth compost and bulbs ready for the Spring. The crocus bulbs were given to school by the Rotary Club as part of their campaign to eradicate polio across the world. 

The original planters were very overgrown and were in need to of a tidy up - they have weeded them ready for the Spring.

They have also carried out a litter pick on the field - especially after all the windy weather we have had recently.

World Book Day

We celebrated World Book Day by coming to school in our pyjamas to fit in with the book 'Dreamer'.

The Dreamer is a written and illustrated picture book about a world where we all care for each other, for animals, plants and places.

This book inspired us to think about endangered animals. 

We also enjoyed a Teams meeting with the children at home.

Tamgram is an ancient Chinese shape puzzle. This fits in well with out learning in maths because this week we have been looking at polygons. 

Wonderful and creative shapes and pictures can be made with these polygons by moving them around. 

Can you guess from our photographs what we have made?

Democracy Debate 2020

Date: 11th Dec 2020 @ 4:26pm

Every year during Democracy Week, the Local Authority organises a Junior Democracy Debate for representatives from year six classes throughout all the primary schools in St Helens

This year, they still wanted to help give the opportunity to primary aged children to learn about democracy and have the opportunity to debate. 

This week, our Year 6 class have taken part in this activity - led by their Rights-Respecting Schools Ambassadors. They were given 10 topics to think about and choose the 4 which they were the most interested in. The following were chosen:

1.Leisure and culture Art, sport and music are great for mental and physical health. Lots of services which give young people an opportunity to take part in leisure and culture are at risk of closing.

2. Improve places to go and things to do for young people Young people should be involved in deciding what youth activities and services should be available.

3.  Access to technology and broadband for learning More learning is happening online but not all young people have access to the right technology and broadband. If learning becomes a mixture of classroom and online then all young people need access technology and broadband.

4. Homelessness COVID-19 might make renting and owning a home less secure, so plans should be in place and money available to ensure nobody becomes homeless.

Each group spent time discussing the key issues around each topic then presented to their classmates - who asked them questions. Each child then cast a vote as to the topic that they felt mattered the most to them - this was homelessness. The children discussed some points and had some interesting ideas - it was impressive to hear them link their discussions to the rights of the child and human rights.


The RRS Ambassadors will feed this back at their next meeting and this will be a focus for discussion and actions moving forward. The results were also sent to the Town Hall, who will collate the results and feedback from all schools across the LA.
