Civic award
A small number of our children (including former pupils) attended their Civic Award ceremony on Tuesday evening. They all looked extremely smart receiving their badge from The Mayor and we are very proud of their achievements. Photographs will soon be up on the Civic award page of the Enrichment tab. If anyone else would like to participate in Civic Award please contact the school office.
Trips, Trips, Trips!
The teachers have worked extremely hard to create an engaging Environment topic that will have a positive impact on the pupil's understanding of pollution and their to ability to sustain and improve our world. As part of this, trips play a huge part in stimulating curiosity and enriching classroom learning.
Year 6 visited Southport Eco Centre to learn about air pollution. One of the challenges included creating a small solar panel which generated electricity to power a fan! The children were so well behaved that the manager of the Eco Centre sent a letter of congratulations to Mrs Arnold!
Year 5 were very lucky to go on a trip to Manchester's Museum of Industry and Science. We learnt lots about different features of Manchester's industrial history including types of transport and mills. We also took part in lots of cool science experiments! Well done to all of the children for their excellent behaviour and inquisitiveness.
Year 4 had an incredible visit from the Chester Zoo rangers. They learnt new ways they can save the rain forest by recycling aluminium cans and how the zoo are saving endangered animals from poachers.
Year 3 had a brilliant morning at Gilmoss Recycling Centre. They learned how to ‘Recycle Right’ by sorting different items. We are so proud of how well the children behaved too! Well done!
Year 2 had a fantastic day pond dipping, mini beast hunting & orienteering at Birkenhead Park. They used the pond nets they made in DT, discussed habitats which links to their science topic & used map reading skills from their work in geography. What a busy day!
Don't worry Year 1, your trip is coming after half term!
Photographs of these fantastic events can be found on the Gallery section, on the Year Group pages and also on Twitter,
Beach Clean
Even though the weather was horrific, a superb number of our children and their adults attended the Sunday morning beach clean at New Brighton. We collected a large amount of litter in order to try and improve the environmental damage that humans are doing to our world. Thank you to everyone who attended. Let's continue to save our world!
Filming with BBC!
Today, the BBC came to school to interview some of our lucky pupils about our work based on the environment. The pupils communicated our work and visions brilliantly and hopefully we will see the article on television soon.
