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.
Y3/4 Tennis Competition 19.5.16
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.
Check on the link below to find out more about our girls' football success.
Read her recount to find out about her amazing day.
'Having been totally shocked that I was being whisked off to London for a surprise trip, I really didn't think the day could get any better...
However, standing in the door of the V&A Museum grandpa grabbed my hand. He quickly ushered me to the door of a lecture room. At the entrance was a poster. As I read the details my heart seemed to miss a beat. Could it really say that we were going to spend an afternoon with Jacqueline Wilson?
She talked for an hour about how she became a writer and where she found her inspiration. She was fascinating. She has sold over 38 million copies of her books. Jacqueline started writing as a child and is currently on Chapter 10 of her 104th book.
After the lecture we queued for an hour to get my book signed. I told her I have 25 of her books and she said I must be a No.1 fan. There are no words to describe how I felt.'
Year 3 Craft Club
Every Friday lunch time in Miss McQuade's classroom Amy, Erin, Lyra, Olivia and Natasha from Year 6 hold a craft club. The club is attended by 10 very keen children who enjoy making a whole range of crafts including bookmarks, door hangers and bracelets. Check out the Lolly Pop designs the children made last week.
Mr Quayle's English group planned and performed their own poems based on a poem about an alligator by Grace Nichols.
They used lots of powerful words and interesting actions.
The display of their work is in the Year 3 corridor. Below is a selection of photographs taken when they had completed their performances.
Basketball City Final
Congratulations to the boys and girls who took part in the Basketball City Finals last night. Having won 4 games and drawing 2, Booker Juniors finished top with 14 points. A fantastic result and team effort. The team now qualify for the Merseyside Games later on in the year. Good luck to them all.
This week in Craft Club we made Rocky Road buns, along with a gift box to give someone special... Not many of the buns made it past the school gate though!! :)
Also, we finished painting our salt dough moulds.
Well done to the Y3/4 Indoor Athletics team for finishing 3rd in the City Finals on the 6th January 2016. They all worked extremely hard and gave 100%. We are all pleased with their effort. 🏆😀
Mr Quayle's Maths group had a fantastic party where they used their knowledge of fractions in a fun way.
The children divided biscuits into fractions and divided sweets into colour groups to work out what fraction of the pack each colour was. Lots of children were able to use their understanding of equivalent fractions to simplify fractions.
After eating their delicious snacks, the children completed a quiz sheet that included fraction questions based on their table group and fun word problems.
As always, they responded well to their challenges and enjoyed their party!
