Children from Year 5 and 6 spent the day at the River Mersey to understand the importance of swimming in lakes and rivers compared to pools. They were shown techniques to use when swimming and how to keep safe.

The children had an amazing time at Robinwood taking part in team building activities. We are looking forward to bringing another class next year.

We celebrated World Mental Health Day and all the children came to school wearing yellow. Mr Wilson led a whole school assembly and raised awareness for Mental Heath.

Primary Inspirations delivered a workshop to Year 5 called Magic Marketing. The children chose products to develop looking for roles within their organisation and had to manage the budgets, design the product, create an advert and present their proposals to the rest of the class. Links were made to Maths and English throughout.

We celebrated National Story Telling Week with KS2 and KS1 children joining together to read with each other. This promoted reading throughout the school. It was a huge success and we are planning on continuing this every half term!

The children have worked really hard with Miss Kayayan over the past few weeks preparing for Now Festival. Now Festival is a show with schools all over the city promoting Mental Health. Our school won Best Mental Health Message and Best Performance of the night. We would like to congratulate the children who performed at the Now Festival and Miss Kayayan for all their hard work.
