Why not carry on reading the texts below.  Remember, Mrs Murray has kindly written a guide to using QR codes in case you don't know how to access them.  

 

How to use a QR code scanner.

 

Most mobile phones and tablets automatically have a QR code scanner built into their camera. If this is the case, just open the camera on your phone, as if you are going to take a picture, and aim it at the QR code (black and white square). The phone camera will focus in on the code (this can take up to a few seconds) and will then open the internet page/app etc. that the QR code is linked to.

 

If you do not have a QR scanner inbuilt in your phone or device, simply download a QR scanner app from your app store such as: • Kaspersky’s QR code reader and scanner • NeoReader Barcode Scanner • Bar-Code reader • QR code reader by Scan Once you have the app, open it up and align the scanning camera with the QR code and, just like through the camera, it will take you to the link within the code.

Take a break activities!

 

Action for Happiness

 

Today's activity is brilliant!  Think about the best thing that could happen.  What do you think?  We think that the possibilities for you all are endless and we think that the best thing that can happen is for you all to have a happy and healthy summer break - ready for High School in Serptember!

Transition - Emotional Health and Well-Being

 

We are going to leave the following links and videos up all summer.  They were sent to us by our school nurse and they will make you think about the emotional and physical changes that you might go through over the summer and your transition to High School.

Year 6 visit to Crosby Lakeside - Scrambler Bike initiative - Friday 13th September 2019.

 

As part of the Merseyside Police Scrambler Bike Project, Year 6 visited Crosby Lakeside to participate in a number of team building and individual sporting activities. We had a great day taking part in kayaking, raft building, dodgeball, archery and rock climbing. As always, we participated with enthusiasm and determination. Well done Elder Class! 

 

A Day in Politics - Enabling Enterprise Day - Thursday 18th October 2019.

 

Our recent challenge day explored the world of politics! We worked in teams to come up with our own manifestos, party names, logos and posters. At the end of a hard day’s work we presented our ideas in a mini election. All our teams were brilliant; working with creativity, confidence, positivity and determination. Our elected winners of the day were The House of Elder - well done!

Enabling Enterprise Visit - Bruntwood, Liverpool - Friday 19th October 2019.

 

As a school we have been part of the Enabling Enterprise initiative for a number of years. We take on challenge days to develop a number of skills, with the view to give the pupils an insight into the world of work and working collaboratively on a project. The skills we work on are listening, presenting, problem solving, creativity, staying positive, aiming high, leadership and teamwork. As part of our experience, we were able to visit a business in Liverpool and we loved having the opportunity to work with people from the business as well as creating our very own towers - we were very persuasive, enthusiastic and creative! Thank you for having us for the day Bruntwood; the history of the property and range of businesses that use your building in the Cotton Exchange is amazing!
