Closure Week 1
We have now finished our first week of home learning. Did you have a productive week? From all of the Twitter comments and photographs we have received, we can see just how hard you are working; please keep these coming. We hope you are finding the resources useful on the website. We are frequently updating these so please keep checking your year group page. There are still a few CGP packs left at school. Please contact the school office to arrange a collection time to pick these up. If you are stuck with anything, then each teacher now has a 'help me' email address, which is located on the bottom of each home learning page. 
Thank you again to all of our families for the support you have given us during this challenging period.
Sports Relief
Today, we supported Sports Relief by completing physical exercise in school. Some classes ran around school, some hula hooped and others competed yoga but all of us had fun raising money for another worthwhile charity event. Once again, we thank you all for the generous donations given to Rights Crew, who will now calculate the total and present it during assembly next week. A small selection of photographs can be found below.
Philharmonic Trip
Today, Key Stage Two attended an environmental concert in Liverpool, which linked to our Autumn topic about the environment. We learned about influential people, who are encouraging environmental change and listened to the orchestra produce wonderful music which set the atmosphere for different environmental issues and solutions. Our favourite part was watching the teachers dancing like penguins! 
World Book Day
We had another great day for World Book Day. Each class blocked out part of their timetable to focus on reading for pleasure and to ignite a love for reading. Pupils were able to bring in their favourite book and read it to their friends. Some of the older children teamed up with the younger children to support them read. We all had a brilliant day whilst learning one of the most important skills in life, reading. Because of this, we held a book fair after school, which was also extremely popular. Thank you for supporting your children with their reading.
Eat them to defeat them
We are currently participating in the Eat them to defeat them campaign, which is aimed at encouraging pupils to eat a different vegetable each week in a variety of ways. Whether the children have a packed lunch or a school meal, anyone can try the vegetables on offer on the special table. Below are images of the first two weeks. Please encourage your children to try them as part of their healthy lifestyle.
