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!

What year 5 like about themselves.....
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
We raised £173.23 for the Alzheimer's Society!! We are very proud of all the children for supporting such a great cause. We had lots of fun making and eating all of the cakes too!!

We look forward to raising lots of money for this worthy cause.
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.

Year 5 had a fantastic trip to Liverpool Cathedral on Thursday. How lucky are we to have such amazing architecture in our city? Lots of us had never been before and were amazed at how big the Cathedral was. Our favourite fact was that there are over 10,000 pipes in the organ. We will have to return to listen to this being played.
