Today I had the pleasure of visiting Anfield Community Bakery. Homebaked is a community land trust and co-operative bakery situated on the boundary between the neighbourhoods of Everton and Anfield, just opposite the Liverpool Football Club. The project is co-owned and co-produced by people who live and work in our area. Starting from having saved our iconic neighbourhood bakery from demolition and developed it into a thriving community-run business with a beautiful apartment above we are proposing to regenerate our high street ‘brick by brick and loaf by loaf’, using money that is spent in the neighbourhood to benefit our communities. We talker about how we could become partners in learning and have many exciting ideas of how we can support each other in the community! So keep reading and look out for some engaging projects coming up soon!
Building A Bridge to Books
Building a Bridge of Books is a creative project which aims to strengthen the links between home and setting by engaging and involving parents in making and using books with their children. The project supports a practitioner to lead four half day sessions for identified children and their families and includes a separate artist-led workshop.
Embedded within the project are ideas and activities that will encourage the love and development of early reading skills, including speaking and listening. What’s more, through the opportunity to make books together with parents/carers and children will also empower parents/carers to learn how to develop, not only children’s early reading and literacy skills but many other aspects of the EYFS.
This project aims to encourage us as a school to have active partnerships with parents/carers by providing our parent/carer community with the opportunity to deepen dialogue with our school about their children’s learning and how they can help at home. Strengthening relationships through a fun and interactive project such as this is of particular importance when engaging families, in order that they feel valued and included.

2nd May 2017
Some children from across Key Stage 1 and 2 had a fantastic morning at Everton Park sowing wildflower seeds to help transform the area. Each child was given a bag of seed to disperse. Richard, who works for the wildflower project, told us how the seeds will develop over the next few months. We can’t wait to visit them when they bloom!

Yesterday, children in Year 3 had the chance to sow wildflower seeds in Everton Park, as part of the Grow Wild project.

Community Police Officers visit Early Years – 5th February 2016
Last week, the community police officers came to visit foundation stage, before their visit we talked about how people help in the community and the role of the emergency services in keeping us safe.
Reception generated and wrote questions to ask the police and nursery found out some very important information in case of an emergency!
The police officers were very kind and they even let us try on their uniforms, we found out that they wore them so we could recognise them in the street or a busy place. The most exciting thing of all was being able to drive the police van, we sounded the alarm and some of us got locked in the back!
Since the visit we have created adventures and rescue missions using paw patrol characters as our stimulus, the children have loved role playing reading and writing about the police, fire service and ambulance paramedics. Nursery also made cards to say thank you! Thank you for your visit!
