Welcome to Jazz!
Monday 20th May - Outdoor Adventures
Jazz Class have this week spent a very exciting day enjoying a range of outdoor and adventurous activities with our friends at Crosby Hall (CHET). The children went for the day which started with an hour charging around Church Wood finding and solving the clues on the orienteering course, reading the maps, following directions and working as a team were all the order of the day. With just a few minutes for a drink and a biscuit the children moved on to enjoy all the challenges that the Centre’s amazing Adventure Course has to offer and a quick burst around the Maze. After a well deserved Lunch the children went in to Ben’s Gorse to design and make their own shelters, from all that the woodland floor had to offer. Tired, dirty and hungry the children returned to school after an amazing day long adventure.
Wednesday 26th March - The Easter Experience
Our friends from St Oswald’s Church in Netherton joined us this week to share with us the Easter Story. The children were able to participate in a series of workshops and activities that helped them to understand the significant moments of the Easter and learn how these key events have shaped Christianity. The activities complimented the work the children have completed in class in recent week where they have been reading the Easter Story from the perspective of the four Gospel Writers, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and comparing and contrasting key parts of the story in the different versions. The team from St Oswald;s were very impressed at the biblical knowledge the children demonstrated during the sessions.

Wednesday 6th March
The children in Jazz Class have been out today. Our day started at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool where we visited a number of the exhibitions including the visiting the Leonardo Da Vinci collection, it was great to see some the extraordinary work of this artist who the children have been studying in class. Great fun was had dressing up as some of the famous faces from history that appear in the gallery’s collection of Holbein paintings and works from the same period. As you can see from the pictures there were some famous faces from school there as well. Following our exciting morning we enjoyed the afternoon participating in the School’s concert with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra at the Philharmonic Hall.
Dewa Roman Experience
As part of our Ancient Romans topic this term, Jazz Class have been to explore the history of our nearest Roman City, Chester. Known as Dewa in Roman times the children enjoyed a fully guided tour of the reconstructions, excavations and museum and enjoyed a wide range of hands-on experiences. They were able to explore many of the themes that they will be learning about in school including, Health, hygiene and medicine, Food and drink, Pottery, Archaeology and discovering Roman artefacts. One of the highlights of the day was to go on a Soldier Patrol with a Roman Legionary. Armed with battle shields and under the ‘strict’ instruction of the experienced legionaries, the children discovered what it took to become part of the greatest fighting forces the world has ever known. Our new recruits had the chance to form a testudo, visit the amphitheatre, defend the walls and prepare for battle.
Jazz Class prepare for Ponpunoto!
Jazz have been busy preparing their dramatic contribution to the whole school Christmas Performance of our original work Ponpunoto! Written by the pupils, Jazz have based their part of the story around the work they have been doing following their enjoyment of the story of the The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. As you can see from the pictures many favourite characters appear!
