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!

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. 

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!

Tongan Player Visit

Tongan Rugby Team Visit


Some of our students had the fantastic oppurtunity today to meet some professional Tongan rugby league players. These players will be representing Tonga in the rugby league world cup. Their first match is on Tuesday 18th October so we are very lucky that they have taken time out of their busy schedule to come and visit us. 

The children were very excited and got to ask the players lots of questions. At the end of the session, the players signed posters for the children and got photographs taken with them!

We'd like to thank the players once again. The children loved it!

Sports Week 2022 - RACE FOR LIFE!

Date: 17th Jun 2022 @ 3:51pm


This week has been Lyme's sports week!

During the week, the children were exposed to a few sports that they may not have chance to play outside of school. One of the sports the children played was Ultimate (Ultimate Frisbee). The children loved the fast pace of the game and how they have to work as a team to get the frisbee over the line! Another sport was Orienteering. This sport was the polar opposite to ultimate frisbee. Children had to use maps to navigate around the school grounds and find a number of markers. When they found a marker, they would stamp the special pattern onto their sheet. When all of the markers had been found, the children returned to their teacher. Lastly, KS1 were introduced to Boccia. This is a game similar to bowls. However, it is played sitting down. This game is played in the paralympics at an international level. The children enjoyed the game and loved trying to get their balls as close as they could to the marker. 

On Monday, Year 6 played at a football tournament were top goal scorers in the entire tournament. Unfortunately, they were knocked out on penalties in the semi-finals. This doesn't reflect how one-sided the semi-final actually was. Lyme hit the post and bar several times but again, unfortunately, luck wasn't on their side. I would like to congratulate Year 6 on their effort during the tournament and in particularly their behaviour which was fantastic throughout. 

On Wednesday, we had a visit from Tara Jones and Katie Mottershead who both play for Saints women's team. Tara is also an England international and is in the squad again to play France tomorrow (on Skysports Arena, 18th June at 5.30pm). Tara and Katie were inspiring and a lot of the children were lucky enough to get their picture taken with the pair. 

Lastly, the whole school took part in the race for life today. Each pupil has trained all week to perform this race and they should all be so proud. Every child that completed the race received a medal for their hard work. 

Congratulations to everyone on a fantastic sport's week. We hope you enjoyed it!

The Queen's Platinum Jubilee

Date: 6th Jun 2022 @ 10:30am

We enjoyed a week of celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. Year 6 focused on the 1960's decade. We looked at art from the 60's and listened to the music that was popular at the time. Most of the children are now fans of the Beatles. We researched key events that happened during this period. We ended the week with a little party.

Well done everyone! 

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.
