Red Cross Clothes Drive
Mrs Higgins-Carter and the Rights Crew were once again supporting others by coordinating the Red Cross Clothes Drive. Thank you very much for all of your generous donations; the Rights Crew helped to transport the bags into the van in order for them to go to the charity warehouse to be supported.
Languages Day
Today Mrs Long led the school in our first languages day. We believe it is very important to learn about the diverse lives of others around the world and languages day helped us to explore some of these. Different classes learnt a variety of languages including Mandarin, Portuguese and French and examined countries where these languages are spoken. Even the teachers learnt alot aboout the countries around the world.  
F2 Church Farm Trip
F2 enjoyed a lovely but extremely hot trip to Church Farm. With the intense sun shining down on them, they were able to enjoy feeding the animals and going on a tractor ride. It was lovely to see them enjoying themselves and learning about the animals and farming jobs.
Ks1 Philharmonic Trip
Key Stage 1 travelled to Liverpool to watch the brilliant orchestra perform songs in the beautiful Philharmonic Hall. The children had been learning the words and dances to several of these songs in their music lessons so they were able to participate from the comfort of their seats. What a lvoely trip to enrich their learning.
Y5 WGSB Trip
Year 5 walked to Wirral Grammar today to learn more about Science. The pupils found it very interesting and were amazed by the scientific experiments that older children complete. The Year 5 pupils were very lucky to use bunsen burners today. This has made them very excited about transitioning to high school in a years time.
BMastered Music Concert
We were honoured to hold the first ever BMastered music concert at school today. All of the children who were signed up to George's music lesson participated in the Glastonbury themed concert, where they were able to perform in front of their very proud parents. There are clearly lots of very telented musicians who have sessions with George and we were very pleased to see how much progress they had made with their skills. 
MAT Cross-Country
Our Cross-country team competed in the first Oak Trees MAT cross-country race, which was held at Poulton Lancelyn. It was brilliant to be able to participate with children from all of the other schools and individual medals were spread evenly between each school. Overall, we managed to win the event, which is amazing! Can we retain the trophy next year?
Coin Challenge
All of the children took part in the Oak Trees MAT coin challenge today. In order to raise money for the academy charities, which were chosen by pupils at the schools, the children were asked to bring in spare change. With the help of the PTA, the house captains made the OTMAT badge and the PL badge out of the coins. A brilliant total of £400 was raised, which will be split between Claire House and Cancer Research UK. Thank you to everyone who donated money.
It's been a busy half term with several staffing changes occuring. Firstly, we would like to wish Mrs Mackie good luck as she departs to begin her new role at St. Johns Plessington. We know that you'll be brilliant and the Year 2 pupils will miss you greatly. Also leaving us for a while is Mrs Swift, who will leave on Tuesday to begin her maternity leave - good luck to the whole Swift family. 
Congratulations to Miss Dixon, who got married in Greece over the half term break. We hope you had a lovely day and we look forward to you returning as Mrs Gould!
