We were very lucky to have a visit from CAFOD representatives who came in to work with us. We looked at the letter Pope Francis wrote to us about the importance of taking care of our common home – our Earth! We watched a video explaining all about the meaning behind Laudato Si and what we can all do to help take care of our precious home.
Take a look for yourself and how you can help us to keep our Earth happy and healthy for future generations.
We have had a wonderful day celebrating our favourite books and most loved characters. All of our class thoroughly embraced the spirit of the World Book Day.
Take a look at some of our future book illustrators!
Year 5 have had a fantastic day exploring Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral. We visited the numerous chapels within the cathedral and learnt lots of the symbolism and significance of artwork housed within Christ the King Cathedral.
Here is a fantastic website to help you learn your times tables…!
We are delighted to announce that the winner of the Merseyside Police Christmas Card Competition was our very own Elizabeth Prescott!
We were delighted when Chief Constable Andy Cooke came to present her with her prize.
He said: “It’s always a pleasure to judge the annual Christmas card competition and this year, as always, there were some fantastic entries. It was a hard choice but Elizabeth’s design was the winner for me and I’m sure everyone who receives the e-card will be absolutely delighted.”

The honour of your presence is requested at the marriage of
Niamh and Lewis
on Tuesday 21st November at 10:00am at St Mary’s Blackbrook.
You will need to come to school in your wedding outfit as normal at 8:50am.
We would like to stress that children do not need to buy a new outfit but choose something that they already have.
The ceremony will take place in church followed by a wedding breakfast afterwards.
Unfortunately due to space in church we cannot extend the invitations to parents, family or friends; do not worry we will be taking numerous pictures and videos throughout our special day which we will share on the website at a later date.

We have asked the children to complete the plans they started in class ready to begin their artwork on Thursday.
We ran our very own speaking corner in Year 5 today, allowing children who wished to be elected as our class representatives to present the reasons why they think they would do a good job and their vision for the future of our school.
We are very proud to announce that our class have chosen Lewis and Lilly-Mae as the Y5 counsellors – congratulations to you both!
