Success for All within a Christ Centred Community

Year One

The year one football team had a wonderful time at Finch Farm today. They played several 5 a side matches against a range of different schools. It was great fun.

We had a wonderful day at Chester Zoo. We learnt which animals were carnivores, herbivores or omnivores as part of our science topic. 

We had a visit from Acorn Farm today. We learnt about lots of different animals, what they eat and how to keep them healthy. It was great fun.

Year One have spent the last few weeks learning how to cross the road safely. We know we must Stop, Look and Listen before we cross the road.

The year one football team came first in the inter school football tournament. All the players played exceptionally well. They have been invited to Finch Farm (Everton’s training ground) in May to take part in matches there. Well done boys!

Today, year one, had two special visitors. John Toker, from Sefton council, came into speak to us about road safety. We also had a visit from Jan, our lovely lollipop lady, who spoke to us about how she helps to keep us safe on the roads around our school. We know we must STOP, LOOK, LISTEN and THINK

when we are near the road.

What a great night we had at the Valentines Disco!

We enjoyed dancing with our friends.

In our music lesson we used musical instruments.

We played to the notes of the songs on the Glockenspiels .

We enjoyed finding out about Mrs Chozepa’s pet rabbit, Treacle.

We know he likes to eat vegetables and we think he is very cute.

Our Christmas Party Day was great fun! We had dancing competitions,

party food and even a visit from Father Christmas.

It is Christmas jumper day!

We had great fun doing our Santa dash on the playground.

Year one attended Mr Kinsella’s advent assembly.

We lit the second candle on our advent wreath and talked about

how we can bring peace to our families and our friends.


We enjoyed looking at our school Nativity scene

and talking about the story of Christmas.


We enjoyed learning how to sew and now

we can’t wait to sew our Christmas decorations.

Mrs Macdonald’s class had great fun and really enjoyed learning how to use the balance bikes. Some of them even had a chance to use a petal bike.

We had great fun looking at and holding a range of animals and insets. We held a lizard, snake and meerkat. It was interesting learning about all the different animals.

We took part in a minute silence on Remembrance Day. Father Ged said a special prayer to remember all of the victims of war. Each year group laid a poppy cross with Mr Kinsella in our school garden.

It is Bonfire Night on Friday 5th of November. Mr Mooney is a firefighter. He came to our school and told us all the important tips on how to say safe.

 In our science lesson we investigated different types of leaves.

We went on a leaf hunt around our school grounds, used magnifying glasses to

look closely at the colours and patterns on the leaves.

We had great fun making leaf prints using paint.

Year One had great fun making smoothies with Active Sefton.

We had great fun planting lots of beautiful plants

on our new plant stand outside Miss Britton's class.
