Liverpool Libraries Summer Reading Challenge 2018

Liverpool Libraries Summer Reading Challenge 2018

Summer Reading Challenge- all Liverpool Libraries

The Summer Reading Challenge encourages pupils to visit their local library and read 6 books over the Summer break. Children read six or more books of their choice: fiction, non-fiction, joke books, picture books; any books they like as long as they are borrowed from the library. They talk about them in the library with a member of
staff  and receive rewards along the way and a certificate when they complete the Challenge.

This year’s Summer Reading Challenge is called Mischief Makers, inspired by the much-loved iconic children’s title Beano, which celebrates its 80th anniversary.  Children will explore a map of Beanotown to find the mysterious buried treasure and become ultimate mischief makers.  Parents/carers can sign children (4-11) up for the Summer Reading Challenge by asking at the desk at all Liverpool Council Libraries for the challenge pack.

Recycle Week 2018

This week we have been finding out all about the importance of recycling. We have been finding out what types of materials can and cannot be recycled and where to take your recycled goods. We designed posters in class and also brought bottles in from home to make puppets out of. We have also had a whole school assembly with a man from Liverpool city council who told us all the rules and everything we need to know about recycling materials within our homes.

Girls’ Football Match vs. Rice Lane – Monday 9th July 2018

Many thanks to the girls from years 4, 5 and 6 who represented OLI in a friendly against Rice Lane today. The girls have been fairly unlucky this year, with a few teams dropping out of the league or cancelling matches and this meant it had been a while since we last played. This meant the girls were raring to go and get their first win of the season!

The match started… not so well. A through ball came through our area towards Lavelle, who managed a heroic clearance… into her own net. We were 1-0 down early and many other players and teams would have crumbled, but the girls rallied to support each other to carry on. Chances began to arise for OLI; the year 5 duo of Ruby Richardson and Shelby Steele combining to set up chances for the attackers.

On the verge of half-time, captain Liv Roberts blasted a shot from the edge of the area that brushed the keeper’s fingertips before being pushed onto the post! Striker Macey Jacobs following up with the rebound from close range that she smashed into the roof of the goal! 1-1! This was how the first half ended. 

As Amber and Penny came on for the second half, the girls maintained their high energy despite the hot sun. Gabriella continued to run up and down the pitch tirelessly and goalkeeper Holly somehow had enough energy in the sun to perform cartwheels when the ball was up the other end of the pitch! Chances came thick and fast for OLI, but Rice Lane’s keeper was in fine form, catching many efforts before another rebound could go in. 

A breakthrough came at last! Mia McCarthy used her strength and skills with dribbling to get to the edge of the Rice Lane box before drilling a low, unstoppable effort into the goal, 2-1! Mia doesn’t usually like to celebrate her goals but she must have been pleased with that one, she even smiled a little! The match ended soon after, 2-1 to OLI. A big well done to the girls on the win, special mention going to Aaliyah for making a year 4 debut and handling herself very well!

POTM: Mia McCarthy – Tireless, enthusiastic, brilliant. Mia scored the winner but her performance was so much more than just a goal.
