100 year Anniversary of World War 1
Thank you to all our families who sent in their fabulous models of buildings from around Liverpool. The response and quality of the projects was brilliant! This week, all classes have been involved in making a film to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of World War 1. The models were also used in the filming, along with some ‘giant’ puppets that the children were involved in making. The film will be shown to the children on Monday morning. We are arranging a separate time for parents and carers to come along and watch the film too! More details to follow.

The Children’s University
Please remember to log your hours for any After School clubs your children attended during last half term. Your child has their own log-on details that are the same as before!
PTA Halloween Competition
Thank you to everyone who took part to create a paper plate Halloween mask! There was a brilliant turn out and photographs of the entries can be seen on our website. Some children opted to write their own Halloween stories and these were spooky indeed! If you want a fright they can be viewed and read on the website, and those entries we were unable to scan are available to be read in our school library. Thank you also for your kind donations of cakes for our ‘Gruesome’ Cake sale.
Total donations collected from both Competitions and the Cake Sale came to £100. Most of this will be given to School Council who had asked the PTA at the last meeting to support them in raising funds for the Walton Centre ‘JimJam' Appeal.
School Council ‘Jim Jam’ Pyjama day
A ‘Huge’ thank you for your donations for ‘Jim Jam’ Pyjama day on Friday, 24th October – we raised £347 for the Walton Centre ‘Jim Jam’ Appeal!
Don’t forget our Library is open to families every Monday after school until 3.55 pm. Please meet in the Junior foyer area and you will be directed to the library upstairs. There is a lift if you have a buggy or find the stairs difficult. We will soon be starting a reward scheme to encourage readers and choosing a book from the library will be an additional way to earn ‘credits’.
Macmillan Afternoon tea
