EYFS know how to make pancakes.

So proud of our EYS writers

I was so pleased to give 3 head teachers awards to a group of children from Mrs Roberts’ class today . The girls get in early every morning and practice writing all of the words that they know . Today they wrote more than 20 words! Well done keep it up!

I challenged the rest of the class to see if they could write more than 20 words (or even more) tomorrow!

Boys Football vs St Mary’s West Derby – Thursday 9th February 2017

Congratulations to all the year 5 and 6 boys who represented our school in this week’s football match. Coming off the back of 2 hard-fought victories, the boys were confident in their teamwork and were looking forward to the game against St. Mary’s West Derby.

Conditions were extremely tough due to very cold temperatures, though the boys managed to keep their energy up, almost scoring inside 30 seconds! The game was end-to-end, with both teams coming very close to scoring. Unfortunately St. Mary’s managed to break through and finish well to go 1-0 up. 

OLI responded with fierce attacks, with Billy Smith linking up well with Zac Abbou. Ethan Duke was on fire down the left wing, almost scoring a sensation goal from a volley. Unfortunately none of these chances turned into goals and a 2nd goal was conceded just before half time. 

The 2nd half was a much tighter game, with speed slowing down due to the cold as well as fatigue. OLI showed a great attitude and didn’t let being 2-0 down worry them; a goal was within inches from a close-range effort from Joe McFarlane Wells. Just before full time, a 3rd goal was scored by St. Mary’s due to an unfortunate deflection. A harsh scoreline given the excellent effort of our defenders Ruben McNeil, Aiden Burns, Reece Mangan and Aaron Jacobs. Congratulations to an excellent St. Mary’s side who did a very good job of handling our more dangerous players.

MOTM: Ethan Duke, for working tirelessly to break through the defence. He showed a hunger for the ball and wasn’t affected by the tough conditions.

Internet Safety Day 7th February 2017

Today is Internet Safety Day. We have had a great response to our poster competition and our judges, Mrs Adamson, Mr Brown and Miss Smyth have a really tough decision ahead. Our Year 5 pupils were lucky enough to visit Anfield to help learn all about Internet Safety. They look part in several activities. In Reception class we watched the film clip about Internet Safety and talked to our talking partners about what internet safety is and how we can stay safe on line.

Our poster competition will close on Friday 10th February. Winners will be announced and prizes awarded in our Celebration Assembly on Friday 17th.

Equality and Diversity Week

This week is our first Equality and Diversity Week. We had the charity ‘Daisy’ at school yesterday where we got to experience what it is like to be blind and what it is like to be in a wheelchair.  Our focus was on their abilities rather than disability as we got to play blind football and have wheelchair relays. Pictures will be posted on the equality and diversity page of the website! 

Internet Safety Day is here!

Already had some excellent entries in our Safer Internet Day competition . The prizes are great : a Robo , a Kodi and Virtual Reality Headset!

Remember you need to be in it to win it!

Here are a selection of the entries from Miss Gilchrist’s class

Boys Football vs St Anne (Stanley) – 2nd February 2017

Congratulations to all the year 5 and 6 boys who represented our school in this week’s football match. Our team was fairly young, with many year 5s in the team and some making their school debut.

The match was very tight from the beginning, with neither defence giving anything away. Our strike force was dangerous, with Billy Smith and Joe McFarlane-Wells ducking in and out of defenders to set up chances for striker Zac Abbou. Eventually, this was rewarded with a 1st half goal from skipper Sonny Geraghty, with a clinical finish inside the area. 

The 1st half ended 1-0 to OLI and, after 2 substitutions, the match became even tighter, with both teams coming extremely close to scoring several times. St. Anne Stanley hit the post and were denied by a goal-line clearance twice! There were some amazing saves from Kamil Skop and defender Aiden Burns was a brick wall at the back. Eventually, after excellent defending from both teams, the final whistle blew and OLI took the 3 points, 1-0. Congratulations to the boys who are looking ahead to our next game on Thursday 9th February!

MOTM: Aiden Burns, for playing a solid defensive game that ensured a clean sheet.
