The end of a great year in Yr5
16 July 2019
It has been a pleasure teaching Yr5 this year and I am really going to miss them. C7 have written a few of their favourite memories from our time together..... "This year has been really busy and it feels like it has gone super quickly.The best parts of this year for me is doing the maths kickstarters with Miss Kerrigan and Bikeability. I found Bikeability really good because I started off not knowing how to ride a bike and ended up riding confidently! For next years Yr5 I would totally recommend Mrs Bridgeman as she is fun and nice. This year was amazing!" Lydia "Class 7 has to be the best class in the whole school because Blu, the schools therapy dog has been based with us. Another great thing about this class is the number of school trips we have been on. The greatest thing about this class is Mrs Bridgeman!" Kristy "My best parts of Yr5 are being able to go swimming and doing bikeability. I loved the trip to the Science festival at UCLAN too." Sanaa "This year class 7 have had some great times. Together we made a great team. We've been on amazing school trips to UCLAN and Liverpool Cathedral, where everyone had a great time and learnt lots of new things." Sophie
Year 6 Cluster Adoration

We spent the Morning on Friday at Saint Wilfrid's Church in Preston with other Year 6 classes from our Cluster. It was special to meet up for Adoration just before we leave for High School, especially during the Year of Eucharist.

I have been blown away this week by class 7 and how much they know about Ancient Greece! They have loved sharing their knowledge with the rest of the class and learning more about this fascinating time in history. Well done Yr5!
Mythical Creature Clay Models
11 July 2019
C7 visited Corpus Christi for the final time yesterday to paint their mythical creatures. They children have thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and have produced some fantastic creatures. We have left them with Mrs Lord to be varnished, so that they are ready to take home next week. We can't wait to see the finished pieces!
Year 6 Production!
09 July 2019
"On Monday 8th July, the whole school watched Year 6's wonderful production of Cinderella er. I had so many favourite characters; the fairies, Fairy nasty boots and her partner, Cinderella and many more, but my all time favourite was the Fairy Godmother because she was so funny!" Catherine C7. "Yesterday, Class 8 put on their fantastic end of year play! It was really funny and some of the boys were dressed up as girls! The Fairy Godmother was really cool, all of the songs were amazing and the costumes were really well thought out. It was just really great!" Sophie C7

Class 7 are thoroughly enjoying looking at the Jabberwocky poem by Lewis Carroll in English! It certainly gets the imagination working! This poem has linked very nicely with our work on mythical creatures.
What a busy couple of days!
04 July 2019
Year 6 have had a busy couple of days using their maths, design technology and computing skills! On Tuesday we spent the day using our understanding of computer programming to monitor and control products that we had designed. We used lego and computer design to make our structures move with the codes that we had created. On Wednesday we had a maths challenge day at Corpus Christi Catholic High School where we spent the day taking part in a range of maths activities. These included challenges, treasure hunts, controlling drones and 3D printing and design. We now only have a couple of days left before our production so it is all systems go!

Sunday evening saw our Year 6 children receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. How proud staff were to see how mature our children are, it was a real pleasure to witness them becoming adult members of our faith community. As always, they were all fantastic and should be congratulated. What a special time for our school and parish family.
