We followed the recipe and listened to safety instructions, with the results being a delicious and very healthy meal. It was great to be able to eat what we cooked and we may have even slipped a few spicy jalapeños into Mr Johnson’s! It was so much fun!
This half term in art we have been looking at Jean Michel Basquiat.
We have been using his techniques to develop a Basquiat style and experimented with colour and lines to produce some fabulous and unique artwork.
Today we had some special guests joining us brought in by the Mobile Zoo ‘Boo’s Zoo 2 You’.
We got to find out all about the exotic animals, from where they lived in the wild, to what they eat at home. We learnt that snakes aren’t slimey and skunks don’t always smell (thank goodness!).
A wonderful experience for all involved.
Thursday 4th April - Ruby Class Assembly
We made some hot cross buns for our family to enjoy after our assembly.
Today was our turn to perform the school assembly. We acted out a short story to showcase all the amazing activities we do in school. Mr Johnson was so proud of everyone, we even wrote our own script! Unfortunately the whole performance can’t be uploaded but hopefully short clips should start appearing on the Clubs page over the Easter holidays. Thank you to all the parents who attended and supported their children learning their lines at home, we couldn’t have done it without you. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did and our hot cross buns we’d made went down a treat!
Our fantastic visitors came into school to tell us all about the story of Jesus over Easter, why the egg is a symbol of this special holiday and we also got to experience some of the feelings Jesus and his disciples may have felt at the time. We loved getting our feet dirty in the paint and experiencing how Jesus washed the feet of his disciples. It was a fantastic afternoon!
Our Easter Experience from St Oswalds church
One a penny...two a penny...hot cross buns!
As the finale to our Christianity topic this term, we have made hot cross buns today, learning about the tradition of baking them at Eastertime. The sweet smell of yeast, sugar and spice has been attracting the attention of everyone passing through Moss Munch! We have looked at the effect yeast has on the dough and managed the tricky task of getting the crosses on the top. We are looking forward to sharing them with our friends and family after our class assembly tomorrow, don’t forget to butter them!!

Wednesday 6th March 2019
In the afternoon we went to the Philharmonic Hall, to listen to their famous orchestra performing their ‘British Values’ concert. We listened to lots of different pieces of music from composers all around the world. To finish, we sang ‘This Is Our Song’ along with the orchestra, using the sign language we have been practising over the past few weeks. All of the staff were very proud of the children’s effort, well done guys!
Wednesday 5th March 2019
Today we visited the ‘Western Approaches’ museum, where we saw the super secret site that the ‘Battle of the Atlantic’ was won. We tested out our own coding and decoding skills, used morse code and wrote each other secret messages. It was a brilliant morning!
Friday 15th February
On a sunny winter morning, a group of Year 5 and 6 children, went to the Sefton Swimming Gala at Crosby Leisure Centre. They were a credit to the school with their effort and behaviour, always striving to do their best. A special mention goes to the 4 boys who reached the Freestyle Relay Final, a very good effort indeed.
