Well done to all Year 5 children who passed the Bikeabilty Cycle proficiency training.

Year 5 filtering muddy water science experiment.



As part of our new R.E. topic, Community, we invited Mrs McNee to come to talk to the children about her volunteering role at Foodbank. The children prepared questions to ask her to find out why she chooses to give up her time to help others, how she helps out, how people in the community can support the charity and the general help the charity offers to families in need.



Next week, the Year 5 children will have the opportunity to take part in a 2 day Bikeability programme.

5C – Mondays 23rd and 30th January

5M- Tuesdays 24th and 31st January


Children are to come to school wearing a tracksuit, trainers, waterproof coat and they must bring gloves and as they will be outside most of the day. Children will be required to wear a helmet throughout the training.


Bikeability is today’s cycle training programme. It’s like cycling proficiency, but better! It’s about gaining practical skills and understanding how to cycle on today’s roads. Bikeability gives everyone the skills and confidence for all kinds of cycling.


Details and consent forms have been sent home and we thought it would be a good idea to get your bike out over the weekend to make sure it is in good working order. (brakes, gears, tyres etc).


Bikeability trained cyclists receive a badge and a certificate in recognition of the level they achieve. The certificate also includes areas for further practice noted by the instructor.



Food Bank collection - Thanks to parents of Emmaus children who very kindly donated food items and money totalling just over £350 which will help to feed families in need over the Christmas period. Well done to the girls who kick started this wonderful appeal.

Victorian Christmas



As part of our half term term topic on the Victorian era, a Year 5 Trip to Croxteth park has been arranged for, Thursday 15th December. Throughout the trip the children will experience what Christmas was like during this period and will be guided through the rooms of the hall and grounds and experience the living and working conditions of wealthy Victorians and the servants of their household. 

Details of this trip will be sent home next week.

Streetdance with Glenn from GLS Dance

The children enjoyed a street dance workshop with Glenn from GLS Dance. They practised then performed their dance to a Funk Track.

Ministry of Chocolate School Workshop


We learnt that our chocolate bar starts its journey as a cocoa bean growing on a cocoa tree in hot and humid countries which lie near to the Equator.

The cocoa beans farmers work extremely hard to harvest the beans, pack them and weigh them ready to be shipped to chocolate factories in other continents.

They haven’t always got a fair price for their cocoa beans, that’s were the Fairtrade organisation comes in.

A special visitor from ‘The Ministry of Chocolate’ taught us that with the help of Fairtrade, the cocoa farmers are never cheated and receive a fair price for the produce that they sell.

When you eat chocolate, you are sharing a yummy gift from cocoa farmers around the world. Chocolate brings the world together!

"Thanks should go to the children, a fabulous couple of classes with excellent teachers! I always enjoy coming to Emmaus so I’m hoping I will be back next year. Always a pleasure working with you, we make a good team!" Carl Turner, Minister of Chocolate.

Roald Dahl Workshop

The children enjoyed a Roald Dahl themed workshop which included story telling and drama based on the book 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'.
