It is so hard to believe that we are half way through this academic year.
So far, there have been many things to celebrate.
The children are working harder than ever and their books demonstrate the pride they have in their work, as well as the progress they made. We are incredibly proud of them.
If I were to choose some highlights, they would be:
- The children performing at the Peace Proms, with thousands of other local children.
- Our year 6 children taking part in English and Maths Master classes with a cluster of local schools.
- Being chosen to take part in The Merseyside Mini Police Initiative.
I cannot wait to see what the second part of the year holds for us.
I hope that you all have a wonderful break and come back to school ready to embrace the season of Lent, and work as hard as ever.
Year 6 are so excited to be taking part in a study about peer massage. They will be helping John Moore University demonstrate the positive impact peer massage has on stress.
More marvellous music today!
Thank you so much to the Merseyside Police Band for coming to see us today. We thoroughly enjoyed listening to your music.
was delighted to receive the email below this morning from the organisers of the Peace Proms; it is our third time taking part and it gets better every time.
Dear Principals, Teachers and Choir Directors,
Huge thanks and congratulations to everyone who participated in Liverpool Peace Proms 2019 at the M & S Bank Arena last Saturday. The choirs were absolutely sensational, both the singing and the choreography were outstanding. It was incredible to see the months of work come to fruition over the weekend, in spectacular style. Please pass on our congratulations to all the children for their sparkling and brilliant performances!!
Thank you for being so helpful along the Peace Proms journey from project commencement at registration last year, to concert day; from getting all your information and details to us accurately and within deadlines; through the choral workshops; to managing your choir groups on concert day. This contributed enormously to a fantastic concert.
We hope that the children had the ‘best day ever’, and will have wonderful, positive and lasting memories of this special occasion. We hope that they will carry the messages expressed in the songs with them throughout their lives and aspire to do their best throughout their lives. We hope they will ‘shine’, and always make their voices heard in the knowledge that they can ‘inspire’, ‘empower’, ‘enlighten’ and ultimately ‘heal the world’.
Finally, we hope that the experience of singing with a full symphony orchestra will strengthen their confidence and inspire them to participate in musical projects throughout their lives.
To the Principals and Teachers who participated last year and returned this year – HUGE THANKS FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT, and to everyone who sang with us for the first time – HUGE THANKS FOR JOINING PEACE PROMS 2019.
Our children certainly did shine with confidence, and they certainly were an inspiration to our school.
Had such a wonderful weekend,taking a group of our children to The Liverpool Peace Proms at The M and S Arena.
Together we helped to spread the message of peace; it was such an important, inspirational event, that we were honoured to be part of.
Thanks to the children and their families and especially to Mrs Lewis, Mrs Walton and Miss Williams for making it happen.
During our whole school collective worship, we reminded ourselves of our school mission.
We also spoke about the beatitudes, and remembered how blessed we are.
We thought about the one thing that we are most thankful for in our lives.
The children are thankful for:
‘ Our wonderful families.’
‘ Our fantastic friends.’
‘ Our super school.’
‘ Our happy, healthy lives.’
‘ The gift of our Lord’.
