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.

Today some of 6W had the opportunity to go over to the church meeting room to have some lunch and a natter with parishioners from our community. The children were well-mannered and a credit to their parents, as they sat relaxed and engaged in conversation with the adults present. Well done children and thanks to the parishioners for the invite. Same time next week?
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 🙂
Five of our boys were lucky enough to attend Anfield this week to play mini LFC and Real Madrid Legends. The boys got to re-create classic goals, give a press conference and meet the stars themselves. It was in preparation for the LFC vs Real Madrid Legends match in March. The five boys will be mascots for the match too. They also appeared on Sky Sports News, The Echo and LFC TV. For more on the story please visit the link below.
Barry the Elf has arrived in Y6. He’s been a naughty elf over the years so we are hoping Barry doesn’t get up to his old tricks! Keep checking our blog to see what Barry has been up to.
This afternoon, Barry was found clinging on to the Christmas Tree in 6W. He was promptly rescued and put in a safe place. Miss Williams wasn’t happy!
This morning (Monday) 6W arrived at school to find Barry had been up to a little mischief over the weekend. He had managed to tip over a box of books. He is now back in a safe place and we hope he stays there…
Year 6 went back in time to experience life as servants or guests at Lord Sefton’s home, Croxteth Hall, in the busy period running up to Christmas. The ‘new intake’ of staff were set to work to; get the house spick and span, prepare food for guests, train as under-footmen in preparation for serving food and wine to His Lordship, provide wood for the fires, and to look after some of His Lordship’s livestock on the Home Farm. Guest on the other hand were looked after by the governess, thy had some fun having writing lessons, followed by some festive creativity. All then met up as His Lordship had kindly thrown a party for servants and guests. Have a look at our photos below.
Looking forward to welcoming back Y6 tomorrow after our half-term break. Both Miss W and Mr Mac hope you all had a lovely break and are ready to get stuck into work. MGL are in tomorrow, so it’s an opportunity to get on with ‘building your apps’ who knows we could have a budding Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg!
