Trip to Knowsley Safari Park 15th June 2011

Years 1 & 2 travelled by coaches to Knowsley Safari Park.


We drove through the Safari Park and saw lions, rhinos, giraffes, elephants, camels, gazelles and the famous monkeys who were sat on a car trying to rip off the windscreen wiper. We all laughed at that! Then it was time for a spot of lunch. After lunch we had a walk round meeting  meerkats, ponies, pigs etc.


Then it was off to watch the sea lion show. The sea lions were very clever and performed lots of tricks for us. After the show we made our way back to the coach when the heavens opened and we all got drenched as we ran to the coaches. Please take a look at the slideshow to see our day!



Fairytales and Puppets

Red Class have been immersed in Fairytale Stories. We have listened, read and acted out all the different stories. Then we chose our favourite Fairytale and were put into groups. We were given a cardboard box to make a puppet theatre and in our groups we planned, designed and brought in items to make the box look like our Fairytale story. After that we made our puppets depending on the characters we were playing. In our our groups we planned and wrote out a short play script. We practiced these and added a musical instrument. We then performed our puppet shows in front of different classes. We worked really hard and had lots of fun making and performing the puppet shows. The other classes loved watching them . We hope you do too!









A Lesson in Spanish!

Year 5 visited Red Class to give Red Class a lesson in Spanish.
Year 5 showed Red Class the colours in Spanish and performed mini plays all spoken in Spanish. Red Class were also treated to a Spanish game on the whiteboard and finally Year 5 had designed information booklets in Spanish which they translated to their buddies in Red Class.
Year 5 gave a superb presentation and Red Class were the perfect audience.
Well Done Everyone!
