On our equality and diversity page there are some new definitions, this is a guide to the language we are using in school to explain when questions arise. We hope you find them useful! 

EYFS Glastonbury

EYFS decided to recreate Glastonbury today including the mud! Check out our photos in the children’s tab, under the key stages file. 

Forest School

Today we enjoyed our second Forest School session. We reminded ourselves of our rules and Frankie and Jacob were keen to share with their friends about the rope boundaries. We investigated tool work and all listened to a tool safety talk and then we had a go at using a bow saw and a drill. We made jewellery out of wooden discs and brought them back to show our teachers.

Year 5/6 Sports Day – Cancelled

Due to the weather, we are cancelling the Year 5/6 sports day. The ground hasn’t dried up enough and it is unsafe to hold races on the yard. A new date will be organised this week, with further information to follow.

The pupils will still be selling their products they made during Enterprise Week. This will take place in the hall between 1:45 and 2:15pm, then again at 3:30pm.

We hope to see lots of you there!

Attendance Reward!

We hope our pupils enjoyed their 100% attendance party this afternoon! It would be great to see even more pupils achieving 100% for our final summer term initiative in a few weeks time!

Welcome!

At 4pm today we will be welcoming our new children and their families to our school. All the Foundation Stage staff are looking forward to meeting the newest and youngest members of our school community.

The afternoon is designed for families to meet staff, find out about school and the exciting curriculum we offer!  Our school cook has prepared a selection of delicious food to taste and staff from Lisa’s Uniform shop will be on hand too.  

We look forward to seeing you later!

Attendance Awards

Children who achieved 100% attendance during last term’s initiative have been invited to an afternoon tea party next Thursday. This half term’s initiative began this week, with 100% attenders winning a trip to the park!

Well done to Miss Gilchrist’s class for winning the best class attendance for the first summer term. They now have £48.10 to spend!

Mr Garth’s class enjoyed a picnic, spending their £20 reward from earlier in the year!

Drug and Alcohol Awareness Workshops – Year 5

Some children from year 5 attended a workshop at Anfield this afternoon to learn about the dangers of drugs and alcohol. Children discussed what they already knew about these substances before learning what they looked like and the harmful effects they can have. The workshop also focused on drugs and the law, advising children not to give into peer pressure in the future and learning to say no.

Forest School

Today we joined Louise and Molly who will be joining us in our Forest School sessions. Today we introduced ourselves to the environment of the forest and set out our boundaries and rules. We looked at hazards in the environment and played with the mud kitchen and investigation box. We loved bug hunting under the logs. We made sure we put the bugs straight back in their natural environment. We later built dens and made our own mud flag. 

Events in Everton Park
