Weekly Update-1 March 2019

It was good to see everyone return to school after the half term break, and for the first few days we were all able to enjoy the spring sunshine.  The first signs of spring  are beginning ot pop up around the school grounds.

This week your parents have had a chance to look at your work and to discuss the progress you are making in school. It is important that everyone continues to work hard to achieve the targets set.

On Friday we had a special visitor to our school; our local MP Mike Amesbury.  Thank you to Class 6 for demonstrating their debating skills.  They adopted a very similar style to that used in Parliament.  Mr Amesbury was very impressed with their ability to express their arguments clearly and effectively.

The School Council also had the opportunity to meet Mr Amesbury,  They had lots of interesting questions to ask.  They represent the ideas and interests of a group of people, just as Mr Amesbury represents his constituents.

On Friday after school the football team headed off to Kingsley CP and the school choir to St. Nicholas Catholic High's Music Festival.  Congratualions to the football team for coming away with a win.  It was a pleasure and a privilige to watch our school choir perform.   We were all inspired by such wonderful musical talent.

Happy St. David's Day everyone.

Best wishes

What a great day for sport.  The sun was out and there was not a cloud in the sky!

Our whole Year 1 class took part in this event and became St Luke’s A (Reds) and St Luke’s B (Blues).

Lots of team work and resilience was shown through squad rotation of the goalkeeper and the substitutes.  Everyone improved.  Everton came to watch and Frodsham JFC invited our players to football sessions.  It was great to see some of our past pupils helping out as Helsby leaders and refereeing the matches.

Girls football Year 5 and 6

Another massive achievement – finishing third place.  All of the girls got lots of game time in this competitive tournament with teams entering from Frodsham, Helsby, Elton and Ellesmere Port.  Great football was played and lots of goals were scored.  This team showed resilience, arriving late and with little warmup then hitting the ground running with a victory.  Everyone encouraged each other.  Special mentions to our team who applauded from the side-lines after each match.  Tough tackling, teamwork and an enjoyment of the game could clearly be seen.

Congratulations to our year 5 and 6 footballers who excelled themselves in our annual tournament.  These players showed great team spirit and should be really proud of their bronze medal.  Everyone played well and looked very smart in their football kit.  It was a tough selection process for Mr Taylor but these players have made it even harder for him with their amazing display.  Everyone is pleased with their efforts.  Thank you to the parents who supported from the side lines.  Gareth Southgate had got lots of competition!

 

Well done to our year 3 and 4 footballers.  They finished in 3rd place and got a well-deserved bronze medal.  Mrs Harrogate said that they all played with smiles on their faces and showed great team spirit.  It was a tough competition but the players represented the school showing resilience courage and dedication.  We hope that they carry this form onto our next sporting event.

Tag Rugby at Helsby RUFC

Great effort by our Year 5 and Year 6 team.  We finished 7th out of 12 teams but the majority of our team had never played a competitive tag rugby match.  We had fantastic comments on how smart the children all looked in their kit and how well they encouraged each other.  All of our players have been invited to continue with rugby at Helsby RUFC during a weekend.

Running Challenge, by Mr Taylor

Date: 18th Jul 2018 @ 4:20pm

Class 3 and 4 split into house teams (boys and girls) to find out which team/ group can cover the most distance in a set time.  Each team marked their runners using the 100 track to measure distance.  By the end of this both classes together had covered 8km.  Not bad at all.

The children were so keen that they want to do it again!
