Super Speaking Skills



This week has been a week to celebrate the speaking skills of our children.

On Wednesday evening, two of our Year 3 girls attended The Liverpool Primary Schools’ Poetry Festival.

They had been chosen by author, Paul Delaney.

Paul had visited our school and spent the day with some of our gifted writers. Together, they produced some of their own poems.

Here they are with their certificates….one of them even won a ‘Poet of Merit’ award!


Yesterday, Year 3 children talk part in a choral speaking event, alongside other local school.

They were so confident, self- assured and fun!

Thank you to them and their teacher, Mrs Heaton. I was extremely proud of them.

A visit from Liverpool Hope University students – Fair Trade.

On Monday we welcomed a group of students from Liverpool Hope University.

They worked with Year 3,4,5 and 6 children to teach them about the concept of Fair Trade; this linked in very well with our Enterprise project last term.

We are very grateful to them for their exciting, inspiring and yummy lessons ( chocolate!).

Number Day 2018 for NSPCC

As our families know, we had a wonderful day on Friday 2nd February when the whole school took part in Number Day 2018, in order to raise money for NSPCC.

The children looked fantastic; they really thought about their costumes and we all had lots of fun, playing games and solving puzzles. Our Maths Ambassadors did a fabulous job. We are so grateful to them for helping our younger children enjoy Maths as much as we do.

We are thrilled to announce that we were able to raise a wonderful £270.

Thank you one and all.

This Friday we will be taking part in the NSPCC Number Day.

The children will be allowed to come into school wearing their own clothes – as long as they have a number on them. They will be asked to give a donation. The proceeds will go directly to NSPCC. They will also take part in a variety of number activities.

During assembly this morning, we spoke about the vital work of the NSPCC and discussed how we can show our support to them. Take a look at the link below to see what we will do to help.

An outstanding performance at The Peace Proms!!!

I could not think of a better way of spending my Saturday than with a group of such special, hard- working and dedicated people; the children and staff of St Columba choir were absolutely amazing.

I would like to thank our children; their outstanding performance was the product of hours of practice and commitment.

Thank you to parents for supporting their children in getting to and from the Arena.

A massive thank you to Mrs Walton and Mrs Lewis for organising the event and giving up so much of their own personal time.

I honestly could not be any prouder of you all!
