Everton Park Spring Run 2017

Everton Park Spring Run 2017

Well done to all of our pupils who represented their key stages in the annual Everton Park Spring Run, last week. We had some great performances, particularly from Jack Traynor, who won his race against last years’ winner from the Beacon, Jubilee. 

Thank you to the volunteers at Friends of Everton Park for marshalling all across the park on such a hot day and for providing refreshments, trophies and medals for all involved.

City Football Champions!

Thursday evening will last long in the memory of many involved with Our Lady Immaculate Primary School, as 10 boys produced a comeback (to rival one in Istanbul) which crowned them as Under 11 City Champions 2016/17.

After winning the Liverpool North League with 5 victories, they faced an equally impressive side in St Nicolas’, who won the Liverpool South League. Both teams would end the city final with a league trophy, but only one could take home two.

The match started with OLI kicking up hill, a tactic discussed and agreed between manager and captain, and St Nicolas’ capitalised on their advantage almost immediately. Pressure on defender Aiden, caused confusion for him and ‘keeper Kamil, with Aiden slotting coolly past Kamil (by the end, Aiden was more than happy with his name on the scoresheet!). 

St Nicolas’ continued with their pressure and momentum, limiting us to few chances at the other end, and scored 3 more. One consolation goal before half-time was all we had to shout about after the boys struggled to get to grips with the pace of the game.

At half-time, we talked about putting more pressure on their players when they had possession, utilising Joe and Billy’s ability to run at the defence and being stronger when tackling. Even though heads were down, Sonny kept level headed: “If they can score 4 in one half, so can we.”

It seemed Sonny underestimated ourselves as we quickly built up momentum through lots of possession and chances at goal. A flurry of goals came from OLI, with supporters having to check with each other what the score was on a regular basis. 

The introduction of debutant Jake seemed to steady the ship in midfield, as through balls and counter attacks became the way to play. Scrappy goals, a free kick and long range efforts all contributed to an 8-4 win – the greatest victory in OLI football history for 10 years.

Walk to School Week

Thank you to everyone who made a big effort this week to walk to school as part of National Walk to School Week. As the weather is improving, it would be great if the children could keep this up in the summer term!

Police Help Nursery to Solve a Crime!

Today, Police Officers were called to Nursery to help us find our missing Paw Patrol pups who were last seen in the lookout the night before. The Police officers spoke to us about how they help people in the community and we asked them lots of questions to find out more about their job. The Police re-enacted a real crime scene, showing the children how they solve cases.

Wildflower Sowing at Everton Park

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!
