We usually cook in 8G on a Thursday but because of this gorgeous weather that we are currently having, it is tricky to cook lots of things as it is too hot or they end up melting!
So, as a change, we decided to swap our Food Technology and Community Access around just for this week.
It was the Golden Ticket reward visits yesterday for both Primary and Secondary Phase.
Our Primary pupils enjoyed a visit to Playpad in the morning and Secondary pupils enjoyed an afternoon at Hollywood Bowl.
It's such a pleasure to be able to lead these visits and spend some quality time…
8G have been to Blackpool today. And what a lovely day it has been!
We arrived mid morning with plenty of time to spare, so decided to go and sit on the steps at the beach to enjoy the scenery and have a quick snack.
There were some cheeky seagulls sneaking around us trying to pinch our…
Another scorcher of a day to end our fantastic Sports Week!
8G walked a mile this morning around the bike track, only stopping to get their cards stamped by Mr Byrom-Jones and his helpers from Rowan Class.
Even though the weather was so warm, all of 8G managed to complete their mile.
8G had a fantastic time at Liverpool World Museum yesterday.
We got to look around the Bug House exhibit as well as the Ancient Egypt one too.
It was lovely to hear all of the things that the pupils had remembered from learning about Egypt in Summer 1.
We ate dinner outside as the…
As part of Sports Week, 8G were lucky enough to be able to have a go on the climbing wall this morning.
The weather was scorching but that didn't phase 8G. Nearly all the class had a go at climbing the wall which is fantastic.
Even Mrs Devlin (who is very scared of heights!!) had a…

What an amazing afternoon we had with some special visitors. As you may have seen on our last blog post, 8G have been learning about living things in Science this half term. We decided to invite some special creatures and their human into school so that we could see them a little closer up. We…
What an amazing time we had at Williamson Park! We saw butterflies, bugs, birds, a fluffy rabbit, meerkats and more! As part of our Science we are learning about living things and their life cycles. Not all the pupils were fans of the butterflies or the bugs, but I think we all loved the…
8G have decided to start doing a daily mile around the bicycle track on the field.
Elaine Wyllie (who is now ex-headteacher of a primary school in Scotland) began the initiative in her school several years ago and has spoken about the massive benefits it has had with her pupils.
Year 8 pupils were able to meet the staff and cattle at Old Holly Farm today.
We started off with growing our own grass which we later found out the cows grazed on, from here we were taken into the milking parlour where we could see the modern day machinery and experience the feeling the cows…
