Faith in Action 10.6.2019


We had a great mixture of activities to explore what it means to have faith and to put it into action…from Bear Grylls, Martin Luther King, The Bible, chants, slogans, posters, making a video...

Children's University 2019

King’s Garden


Enjoying the play area and ice cream!

Geography and History Fieldwork

 in the park.

Geography = We were looking at the facilities and condition of the park area. We used a questionnaire to find out what visitors to the park thought about it. Mostly they loved it!

History = We were looking at how much the park has changed since it opened in 1913. At first glance we thought it had changed a lot but when we used the information boards and looked at individual areas we discovered that a lot of the park is very similar to one hundred years ago.

SATS have finished! Here’s what we did next…

The Maya Treasure Escape Room Challenge


To the accompaniment of Maya music, we had 4 codes to break and a combination padlock to unlock to reveal the treasure. We had a word challenge and a giant jenga to build a pyramid from.

Year 6 demonstrated great team work skills

and Christian Values such as kindness and generosity in the way they approached these tasks.

The prizes?

Chocolate of course (thanks to The Maya!)

Enjoying the sunshine with our buddies during SATS week

We are wishing all the very best the our lovely Year 6 pupils as they complete their SATs this week!

British Values: Mock Election 

Mock election…who would we vote for in local elections?

Christian and British Values…respect and individual liberty

Practising for our democratic process

We used ballot papers for our secret ballot.

First we voted without looking at what the local parties were offering: Labour won.

Then we read about what the local candidates had said they would do and discussed in groups what we thought. The information was numbered rather than labelled with a political party’s name. The Green Party won.

Year 6

Here are some of our News Champions and History Ambassadors preparing for and delivering class worship around the school about

the British and Christian Value of respect

Our History Ambassadors continue to give up their time to act as Chronology Buddies with pupils from Year 1 and reception. Thank you!

Thanks to our wonderful News Champions and History Ambassadors

for leading class worship with the younger children recently.

They have been thinking about if schools should be car free zones and what can we do to reduce the problems of plastic pollution. 

Commonwealth Day

We celebrated being part of The Commonwealth family with a special worship time led by our News Champions from Year 6.

They were great leaders.

Thank you.

World Book Day

We loved dressing up as characters from books and talking about our favourite stories and authors. We also got the chance to see our teachers dressed up in an assembly acting out being coloured crayons, from the story The Day The Crayons Quit.

We also brought in books to donate

Learning about the meaning behind Shrove Tuesday (saying sorry and getting ready for Lent) and of course eating pancakes!

Year 6 History Ambassadors acted as experts for our class.

They answered questions and gave support in our group work.

Thank you.

You did a brilliant job

Hands on History Exhibition


Thank you to our wonderful Year 6 History Ambassadors

who hosted an exhibition for our community about our local history.

We discussed their memories of school days and what Southport used to be like when they were young.

PE: Health and Fitness doing our mile run and counter balances in gymnastics

Year 6 were joined by Reverend Marie-Ann who explained the meaning of Eucharist and how it is carried out in Church.

Year 6 led a whole school worship about wisdom and justice…linking these Christian Values to our British Values

We used the example of Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Fry and Florence Nightingale as people who were wise enough to act when they saw that things were unfair. Fry and Nightingale were devout Christians who did what God told them to do even though it was not easy for them. They helped make our country a fairer and better place. We are free in this country to make lots of choices. Because we live in a democracy we have the right to give our opinions and try to change things…just like they did. Thank you to our volunteers who worked hard on this in their own time…great role models for our younger children.

February 12th = Hands on History Exhibition


Year 6 volunteers are acting as guides at this event which will have quizzes and activities.

Permission letter is in the letter section

We are recruiting new News Champions!

Year 6 pupils are busy making applications and undertaking test tasks and interviews.

Watch this space to see who is selected and what they will do to help our school community.

 Year 6 leading worship about wisdom

Learning about counter balances and counter tension balances during our gymnastics topic in PE

Whole School Trip to 'Beauty and the Beast' Panto at the Floral Hall Thursday 20th December 2018

See below... we are making our present from the Year 6 staff…snowman soup!

Our Junior Christmas nativity story

Year 6 History Ambassadors lead learning on

Southport in the 1840s

Two of our Year 6 volunteered to teach Year 2 about space!

They had done extra research and made a PowerPoint to share with the class.

Year 2 loved it! We are very proud of them.


More learning from our church community today. History Ambassadors had a lunch time tour with Mr Carver

We respect others. We learn from others. Here is Huw's grandmother telling us about her family history. It involved refugees and RAF pilots. Older people have lots they can tell us. It helps us understand who we are if we know about our family histories.

Year 6 History Ambassadors practise some of the skills of citizenship. Here they take a lead and share what they know with younger pupils.

Here they are as Ancient Greeks helping Year 4 with their history unit.

We had another beautiful class worship today led by the pupils.

Their theme was love and they used John 13:34 ( a new commandment I give you...that you love one another as I have loved you...) and the film A Wrinkle in Time ( where the love of a sister for a brother defeated evil) as their focal points.

Year 6 Parliament Week debates: history meets politics!

We investigated our Class worship theme of ‘It’s not fair!’

We did this by exploring child labour in the 19th century and its parallels today.

It was only because people saw what was happening and said ‘It’s not fair!’ AND did something about it that we have better lives today.

We practised dramatic speeches calling for an end to child labour.


We also had mini debates about a range of topics e.g.

Should people have to go to church at least once over Christmas?

Should people be allowed to spend whatever they like on their pets?

Should shops be allowed to sell Christmas items before December?

We led whole school worship for everyone today.

It was about Parliament Week.

Our debate was this:

Should primary aged children be allowed to use social media?

Year 6 led remembrance worship as part of class worship and for the whole school and parents.

This included the Last Post, National Anthem and appreciating the British values we have today.

History Ambassadors went to see the war memorials in the church and Mr Carver shared stories about some of those who served in World War One.

Year 6 Trip to The Atkinson October 17th 2018

We had a great time! We learned about Southport in the past.

We loved the exhibition called Double Take which merges photos from the past with photos of the same locations from today.

We explored the Frank Hampson exhibition. He was a local Southport boy who when he grew up put his faith and artistic talents in to action and in doing so became world famous. He decided that a Christian comic was needed with clear moral messages mixed with action and adventure. This was The Eagle with its hero Dan Dare.

We visited The Monument - our spectacular war memorial. We had a minute’s silence to honour those who served to defend our freedoms.

See the photos below



Thank you to our fabulous History Ambassadors (and some other helpers) who acted as guides for our StPhilips100 exhibition this evening. 

It was a great evening with many parents commenting upon how articulate the ambassadors were.

See below for some photos


RAF100 and our British Values

Honouring the memory of those who served in the RAF one hundred years ago and appreciating our British values.

Year 6 chose their favourite British value and wrote it onto an outline of a plane. Rule of law is the most popular value, followed by democracy. See the photos below


Year 6 History Ambassadors visit Welcome In...see the photos below


On Wednesday 3rd October, six of us from Year 6 went to the church Welcome In.

We have been making a new remembrance wreath to share with the church and we presented it to them. We thought ahead what questions we would like to ask so that we had some idea what we would find out about.


We really enjoyed our time with people who could tell us so much.

Here are a few things that we learned...

One man showed us his father’s medals from World War One

Some of them had left school at just 14 years old

Philip only saw a banana for the first time when he was seven years old because when the war was on fruit like that couldn’t get to us from so far away

A lady had brought in a train set from the 1930s

Betty had photos on her phone of when she was a nurse in the 1950s

One man gave us a bag of jelly babies and said that with rationing that was all a whole family got for a whole month!

Peter’s family only had two candles in the entire house to use during the black outs on World War Two.

Here we are practising our debating skills in Geography...How far should we protect the rainforests?

Year 6 British Values

Year 6 have been practising their debating skills and discussing our British Values. We debated by ‘bobbing’ like MPs do in the Houses of Parliament. We discussed if it is right to give money to the homeless. We also had a report back from the Student Council meeting. See the photos below

We have chosen our first five History Ambassadors

P.E. Badminton

This week we learned how to use a badminton racket using the forehand and backhand grip. We practised our had to eye co-ordination by using balloons.

StPhilips100..we have begun work on our remembrance poppy cascade!

All Year 6 have been making a remembrance poppy out of the bottom of a plastic water bottle.

Eventually everyone in the school will have made one.

We are re-using drink bottles that we have used. We want our poppies to show we care for our environment!

We aim to make 300!

These will then form a moving display for the centenary of World War One.


Visions and Values Day

We spent time learning more about the Bible, how it can guide us and how it is organised. We worked on our Bible timelines. See the photos below
