Have a great summer and see you all in September.

Key Stage One Team.

Year 5 and 6 Try-athlon!

A lucky group of Year 5 and 6 pupils got to take part in a Triathlon event at Wavertree Sports Park, this morning. Swimming, cycling and running make up the event, with the children being able to use their skills from across the curriculum to achieve their goal of completing the tough challenge!

Well done the team – hopefully we will get another chance to compete next year and our Year 6s continue seeking Triathlon opportunities at their secondary schools.

If you would like your child to take part in Triathlon events over the summer, then there is an opportunity below:

English Speaking Board Examinations

A group of our pupils took part in English Speaking Board Examinations today. The children were all extremely well prepared; showing themselves to be effective, confident oral communicators.

Well done everyone, you should be very proud of yourselves today!



Special visitor in Key Stage One!

Key Stage One were lucky enough to have a visit from one of our very own parents who works as a Botanist. He came into Key Stage One to talk to us all about his job and a typical day that he would have.

He spoke to us about how he became a Scientist and where his job takes him across the world, exploring and experimenting.

We loved this opportunity and we were even given time to ask him any questions that we had about his role.

He will be visiting our school again soon to bring in some moth traps for us to explore them and find out how many different types of moths we can find in our school grounds, how exciting!


Year 6 Refugee Awareness Workshops

Mr Garth’s and Miss Topping’s class have taken part in refugee awareness workshops with Carmel, from the British Red Cross. The children have discussed the difference between asylum seekers, refugees and migrants as well as learning about the push and pulls of leaving your home country.

Pupils talked about what would make them leave home and what is happening in other countries to make them find a different place to live.

New ‘Thinkuknow’ parents and carers campaign launches today!

Today is Day 1 of this three month campaign, and we are excited to introduce our first new resource entitled “The world changes. Children don’t”. 

So why not log onto the website and read more the parents section of the Thinkuknow website provides information to support parents and carers to understand and respond to the risks their children may face as they grow. It covers a broad range of online safety issues from nude selfies to what to do if you think your child is being groomed online. Find it at:

Research tells us that having a supportive parent or carer can make all the difference in helping a young person learn to stay safe. We hope this campaign will raise awareness of the breadth of advice and support Thinkuknow offers, and its accessibility to anyone whether they would like more information about keeping their child safe, or is worried about a young person in their care.

Key Stage One Trip to the Beach

What a fantastic day that the children had! They were given the opportunity to have a sandcastle competition, play games in the style of the Olympic games, visit the park and even feed the ducks! To end the day the children each had an ice-cream and played some fun circle games.

Our pupils had a wonderful day at the Welsh Mountain Zoo, today, looking around the enclosures and learning lots about the different animals through talks from the experts. All the children were very well behaved and were a credit to their parents once again.

Mr Garth’s Class Assembly

The pupils in Mr Garth’s class put on a lovely assembly for parents, families and Year 3, sharing their dreams and aspirations for the future. Each child created a sketch for the audience to guess their dream job, with the answers revealed on a video created with Mr Mills.

We hope that everyone enjoyed the assembly as much as the children enjoyed putting it on! Follow us on Twitter to see videos of the sketches!


Year 1 to the Nature Trail!

Miss Hughes and Mrs Bowcock’s class enjoyed a wonderful trip to the nature trail at BNENC today, hosted by Regenda Homes’ Community Apprentices. Once again, the staff were extremely knowledgeable and looked after the pupils brilliantly.

The children enjoyed navigating the trail and finding all the different plants and flowers on their quiz sheets!
