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.

The Liverpool Readathon is being held during National Libraries Week.
Liverpool Libraries Service is working hard to ensure more pupils and families visit libraries and are equipped with library cards to have access to both the 1000s of books available to lend. In addition, all members can use Read Liverpool to download free ebooks, audio books and magazines wherever and whenever they like so if your child has a laptop, Kindle, iPad or other tablet, join them up to get this access absolutely free!
Its fairly easy to set up, log on to the guide and follow the instructions at https://www.readliverpool.co.uk/help/set-up-guides/. If you need further help you can contact the libraries service to find out when their next ebook workshop is being held.
Remember to keep reading!
Help us to build a buzz about books and reading for fun as part of our mission to create a community of readers in our school . Thanks for all your help so far , we have had lots of parents, carers family members and even ex pupils coming into school to read with small groups .
On your marks, Our Lady Immaculate ? Ready , set , read !
Our sponsored read is running during the Liverpool Readathon and coincides with National Libraries week from Monday 9th -Friday 14th October . The money raised is to support ‘Read for Good’ who take mobile bookcases to children in hospital so they can get access to books and resident readers during their stay. Their website has lots of information and some great activities for children http://readforgood.org/ .
The main aim of the Liverpool Readathon is to motivate our children to read for fun . We know that learning to love reading as a child has benefits which last a lifetime. Children can read what they like from comics to classics , all they have to do is write it on their sponsorship card . Take a look at what they plan to read or help them complete it .(Try to get any money raised into school by Friday 20th October please.)
Please do support your child’s reading efforts as above all we hope they have fun !
Thanks for your support .
“Reading is like flying – it can carry you to different worlds. So hurray for Read for Good, which helps launch so many children on that exciting journey.”
As part of Liverpool Football Club’s initiative for young local fans, 18 of our children were able to enjoy the thrills of two Premier league matches this week.
The first group went to watch Liverpool vs Manchester United and the second group watched Liverpool vs West Bromwich Albion. For lots of the children it was their first match day experience and what an experience it was!
Both games had a great atmosphere and the children had a fabulous time joining in lots of the familiar songs, it was great to hear all the fans and our children cheering the team on.
The new Main Stand is an incredible sight and those with 100% attendance will be in a draw to be able to experience match day all over again! As usual, our children were well mannered and their behavior was impeccable, it was a pleasure to enjoy the football alongside them.
To parents and carers we would like to thank you for your continued support throughout the whole year. By us working together as a family we are scaffolding your child’s learning and providing them with the best opportunities possible.
Have a great summer and see you all in September.
Key Stage One Team.
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!
