Congratulations to the year 5/6 football team for their impressive league win! They have fought hard all season and played some excellent football and we are very proud of their achievement.
The team were a delight to train with a really good team spirit (and lots of banter!) but just as importantly they were good sports even when results or games did not go their way.
They are now Champions of North Liverpool and go on to play the other league champions in the City. The Championship Final is on Thursday 18th May at Camp Hill, Hillfoot Road, L25 7UG. A big thank you to the parents, as the support at every match has been fantastic!
We still have a couple of competitions to play, including Anfield mini-league where we have a 100% record.
As you know the SATs are approaching. Here are ten top tips for success:
1) Get a good night sleep! (In bed by 8:30.) When you get a good rest your brain is sharper and ready to learn.
2) Eat a healthy/balanced breakfast. Oatmeal, wheatabix and wholemeal toast all release energy slowly keeping you energized until lunch.
3) Drink plenty of water. Try to drink at least eight cups a day. Be careful not to drink them all at once – it’s better to sip constantly throughout the day.
4) Try to cut out fizzy drinks and junk food until after the SATs. These foods do not contain nutritional value and although they have sugar for energy, it’s not the right sugar to keep you going all day.
5) Limit TV, computer and Playstation. These can numb your mind and distract you from your goals.
6) STUDY! Try to study in short bursts. Don’t overload yourself. Study for 15 minutes at a time, take a short break (not TV or Playstation), and then come back to your work again.
7) The night before the SAT – don’t study too much. Simply, read your notes and try to relax.
8) Ask questions! As you study, record questions that you come across that you are unsure of. Make a note of these to ask a teacher or classmate.
9) Exercise. Be sure to try and get 15-20 minutes of exercise every day. This could be a game a football with friends or taking the dog for a walk. Fresh air is good for your body and your brain!
10) MOST IMPORTANTLY OF ALL – RELAX, BE CONFIDENT AND BELIEVE IN YOURSELF! YOU ARE ALL STARS!
On Wednesday 1st March Year 6 were lucky enough to meet Muntu Valdo, an African musician, who was born in Cameroon. He came to visit and tell us about his music called Sawa Blues (named after the Sawa region in Cameroon). Muntu played the guitar with a lot of pedals which created effects and recorded sounds and was like nothing we had seen before. We had an amazing time with Muntu! We got to sing and join in as well as having Muntu play some of his music for us. Have a look at our pictures and video below.

In year 6, we celebrated world book day by dressing up as Roald Dahl characters. We also made book benches. The book benches were made out of card and corrugated cardboard and a front cover, with a Roald Dahl theme, stapled onto the front and the back of the card. Next Mr. Macleod took pictures of the benches and picked the best one. The winner for the best bench was Mia Newall. She made a ‘James and Giant Peach’ cover which was spectacular!

Yesterday, was our last day of PSHE and we went to reducate. Unfortunately, Colin was sick so he couldn’t make it ( we hope you get better soon!) but Gemma stood in his place. Every week Dave and Colin came to school and taught us about values, inclusion, resilience and many other things! Each lesson we had different tasks to complete in teams and watched videos about our topics. The whole class loved them.
We really hope you visit us soon Dave and Colin!

Yesterday, we all cooked some DELICIOUS African Mango Chicken with Michaela! We made it as our topic -which is really fun to learn about- is based on the slave trade. This certain meal comes from all four corners of Africa. It is a traditional meal from around the continent. We used some exotic ingredients such as Mango Chutney, Kidney Beans, Long Grain Rice, Black -eyed peas/Black-eyed beans, Coconut Milk (NOT Coconut Water), Lime and Last but not least Thyme!
Everyone enjoyed the meal.
THANK YOU MICHAELA!

This week All Saints were learning about staying safe online. Please have a look at a sample of work from 6M.
Every Monday for the next few weeks LFC will be coming in to teach PSHE in 6M. Already the coaches have covered resilience and ambition. They have been great role models for the kids to look up to.
Y6 had the opportunity to bake a Victorian sponge in a conclusion to their themed curriculum topic of ‘The Victorians’. Delicious smells wafted a long the corridors as their cake mix baked in the oven. How many will actually make it home without a little nibble taken from it, is anyone’s guess! Well done Y6, behaviour excellent as usual with great results even if you didn’t know who Mary Berry is!
On Monday, year 6 were lucky enough to be invited to St. George’s Hall to watch ‘Into The Woods’. The story included a whole host of Disney characters all working together to achieve a goal. Luckily in the end, they achieved their goal. The story’s humorous characters all left us in tears and on the edge of our seats as they were that funny! By Tikki and Joe R 🙂
