Random Acts of Kindness

This week is Anti Bullying week.  As a school we have decided to take on the Random Acts of Kindness challenge.  Choose one of the acts each day and try it out to make someone else smile. Let us know which one you have tried in the comments below.


Year 5 at Western Approaches

Year 5 enjoyed a visit to Western Approaches – Liverpool’s hidden wartime HQ – to finish off their WWII topic. Up to 300 people (mainly women) worked there to plan Britain’s success during the Battle of the Atlantic.



Making soup

Year 5 had lots of fun preparing vegetables ready for making soup as part of their DT topic! The class learned a little about seasonal vegetables then started to cut, chop and shred a selection of produce. Well done everyone!

Shy Lowen Horse Sanctuary :08/10/18

Class 5&6 Have learning all about horses over the past 4weeks. They researched their horses history, measured horse in hands, used, a measuring tape around the  girth to determine horses mass. This will culminate next week in each pupil riding their preferred horse.It’s been an exciting few weeks and pupils have become calm and considerate around these beautiful animals. Mr Verdin came along to visit and was very impressed by how much our pupils had learnt about their horses.


WWII researching sources

Year 5 have been researching how Britain stood firm against the threat of the Germans during WWII.

Research themes included Dunkirk, The Blitz, rationing and Women working in factories.  Excellent work!
