Rugby and Running After School – Friday 29th April 2016

Anfield Mini League – 26th April 2016

This afternoon, we had two football fixtures against St. Margarets Anfield and Pinehurst in a catch up of fixtures from the Anfield Mini League, at Anfield Sports and Community Centre.

First up was St Margarets Anfield, and a quick break from the opposition caused problems in our penalty area. The OLI defence stood off and allowed a shot at goal, which crept past Eryk’s far post and into the goal (0-1). From this point onwards, we were the stronger team, creating chance after chance, but failing to beat an impressive SMA ‘keeper. Despite dominating the match from start to finish, our front line couldn’t find the back of the net and the game finished 0-1 to SMA.

Top of the table Pinehurst awaited at the final whistle, but once again OLI dominated from start to finish. Lots of chances for Kian and Joel in the first 5 minutes, produced a solitary goal after a neat one-two between the two players. Pinehurst threw the majority of their players forward during each attack, outnumbering our defence, but found it difficult to beat an impressive Eryk between the sticks.

Three goals from Pinehurst showed why they are top of the league, despite not playing to their fun potential. One goal in reply from OLI was enough to put the pressure on for the final ten minutes, but Pinehurst settled the match with a fourth, to end the match 4-2.

Year 3 visit to Nature Trail and Allotment

Miss Gallagher’s class had a wonderful visit to the Nature Trail and Allotment at the Breckfield Centre, organised by Regenda Homes. The community wellbeing apprentices made the pupils and staff feel extremely welcome and planned a nature trail quiz for our pupils. This was a great link to their current topic of Plants in Science.

The children also got to take a pot plant home to look after. Mrs Burns’ class are visiting this Friday, with Miss Boughey’s class the week after.

Thank you to all the staff at Regenda Homes for making us feel so welcome every time we visit – the children loved it!

Grow Wild Project – Everton Park

Yesterday children in Year 3 had the chance to sow wildflower seeds in Everton Park, as part of the Grow Wild project. This was extremely successful last year and the wildflowers made our local park look beautiful! Richard from the wildflower centre explained how to sow the seeds and as Year 3 have been looking at plants in science, they were able to explain how the seeds will eventually grow into beautiful flowers. The children are excited about visiting the flowers in the coming months to look at how the seeds change and develop.
