Recently, Year 3 have compared our famous city to the picturesque village of Ingleton in North Yorkshire, as part of the Geography curriculum.
Every child in Year 3 sent a postcard to a particular child at Ingleton Primary School, the only school in this lovely village. Our postcards have included information about what it is like to live in a city.
We are looking forward to receiving postcards from our new friends in the near future!
Year six haven been learning about making good choices in their teenage years. They did a range of workshops to help them think this through. You can see some pictures and videos of this below.
BOOKER’S GOT TALENT!
We are pleased to announce that we will be holding a talent show to showcase all of the fabulous talents in our school. This is an opportunity for children to show off what they can do, in or out of school.
Auditions will be held in the final week of this half term.
All children who enter will then have the chance to perform in front of their own year group.
Four or five acts from each year group will then be chosen to perform at our talent show which will be held in the final week before the Easter holidays.
Parents/Carers will have the opportunity to buy tickets for the evening talent show, More details to follow.
YEAR 3 TECHNOLOGY TOUR OF TESCO
On Tuesday 7th November, Year 3 enjoyed a visit to Tesco on Mather Avenue to examine how they use technology. This visit was the culmination of our recent Geography topic.
Despite the awful weather and limited time, Emily Proud and the staff provided an interesting and fun insight into the various ways that technology is used to improve efficiency and help the supermarket to run smoothly.
Our tour included standing in one of the freezers, learning about the shop and scan facility, an explanation of the stock checking/ordering handheld devices and a view of the entire shop at the security hub!
Thank you to Emily and the staff for organising a great tour. We will see her soon for some Farm to Fork work!
Today we had a whole school assembly held by Merseyside Youth Association (MYA) which we thoroughly enjoyed. They taught us all about our rights as children. Did you know there are 42 children's rights listed by the United Nations (UN)
Mr Barker and Mr Bolton had great fun competing against each other to have the most rights pegged on them! It was a draw, even though Mr Barker doesn't think so :)
We got to see some fabulous mannequins that represented some of our rights. Check out the photos below

SKY TRY FOUR NATIONS TAG RUGBY DAY
On Sunday 20th November, a group of Year 4 children had a wonderful day playing and watching rugby.
The children competed against other schools on Stanley Park, which separates our two famous football grounds. Both of our teams produced impressive displays and were sporting and enthusiastic throughout the tournament. Clearly, Mr O'Keeffe's training sessions are producing positive results! His dedication is appreciated.
Following the presentation, we made our way to Anfield to take part in a pitch parade and watch Australia and New Zealand do battle to lift the Four Nations trophy. Before the game started we were treated to a fireworks display and a performance from a choir. Of course, we also saw the Kiwis do their dramatic Haka dance! However it was not their day as Australia won the game convincingly.
Thanks to the children for representing our school fantastically and thanks to the parents who came along to watch.
Some of our Y3/Y4 boys and girls took part in the Liverpool Go Run For Fun event at Wavertree Athletics Track.
They completed a 2k route of the park and performed fantastically. At the end of the race they met Kelly Massey, a bronze medalist at the Rio Olympics 2016. Well done to all who took part.
Well done to all the girls and boys who represented our school in the Merseyside Games.
They all worked hard to get to this point and we are all very proud of their effort and commitment.
YEAR 4 TRIP TO LANGTREE PARK
On Friday evening (8th July) a group of children from our school rugby club visited Langtree Park, the home of the famous Saint Helens rugby team.
We watched Saint Helens take on their local rivals, Widnes, in an exciting match that ended in a narrow win for Saints. At half time the children played a game of touch rugby on the pitch in front of over 11,000 fans!
We had a great time. Thanks to all the children for representing our school fantastically- Mr O'Keeffe, Mr Quayle and Mr Kavanagh were proud.
Take a look at the slideshow below.

Well done to the Year 3/4 tennis teams. They all served up a treat and played some great rallies. The B team were extremely successful and finished in 3rd position in their group. The A team won their group and have made it through to the City Finals on Monday. Congratulations to both teams and good luck to the A team on Monday.
Well done to the girls and boys who took part in the Liverpool City finals today. The children were great ambassadors for our school.
The boys finished in 1st place and go on to represent Liverpool in the Summer Merseyside Games. The girls put in a tremendous effort and finished only one point behind the winners. 1st and 2nd place is a fantastic result for Booker. Congratulations to all involved. 🏊🏻🏆🏅
On Tuesday the Girls' Football team represented Liverpool in the Merseyside School Games at the home of Liverpool and Everton Ladies Football Club. They enjoyed a parade through the tunnel on to the 4G I-pitch where they were asked to sing the National Anthem.
The girls played very well and finished the competition in 3rd place, the 3rd best Girls' football team in Merseyside. This competition rounds off our contribution to the Merseyside Winter Games, it's been a great run out for Booker. Well done to all involved.
