Welcome to the gallery for the academic year 2017/2018! Below are many exciting events that happen at Gwladys Street C P and N School.

Santa visits Gwladys Street

 

Today, Gwladys Street School had a very special visitor!

One of the children noticed an unusual figure on top of the roof of the house in the school grounds, only to discover it was in fact Rudolph!
Father Christmas decided to literally drop by to see all our lovely children, delivering some very special messages and also gifts too!
Father Christmas brought along Mrs Claus and his Elf to help make his visit extra special.
Our children had a lovely time.
Thanks to all for creating some magical moments, creating magical memories.

LFC

On Friday 15th December, some of our children had the opportunity to visit LFC's Training Ground Melwood. The children visited as a reward for their outstanding contribution to school. The children were given a guided tour around Melwood and met the Food Nutritionist for the players and staff. They created and decorated fabulous gingerbread houses. The children then went on to meet Jurgen Klopp, LFC's Manager, including the entire football team! All autographs were collected prior to watching the team train in preparation for the next football game.  Gwladys Street School would like to thank Forbes Duff, LFC, for the support he has given to our school.

After School YOGA Club for PARENTS/CARERS

 

From November we have started our  Parent/Carer and staff yoga club after school. It took place in KS2 Hall: from being a busy place full of happy children, the hall was transformed into a place of calm and tranquillity. Here, our parents and carers enjoyed some quality time for themselves and the session finished off with some lovely relaxation. Any parents who wishes to come along and join in, (no experience needed) contact the school office. It will be every Thursday from 3:45pm-4:30pm and it's just  a £2 donation.

If you have a child/children, they will be cared for in our breakfast room by members of Gwladys Street staff. We look forward to seeing you there.
 

 

Feeling Calm

NSPCC Internet Safety Awareness

On Thursday 30th November, our school arranged an Internet Safety Awareness Coffee Afternoon for Parents/Carers and Grandparents. This event took place working in partnership with NSPCC. Important key messages were provided which included keeping our children safe. We shared lots of ideas and ways to support our children.

Thank you to all who came along!

 

 

Litter Pick

On Thursday 30th November, Gwladys Street School worked in partnership with Merseyside Police, our local Officers from Walton Lane. The children completed a litter pick within the school grounds and around the local area, including Gwladys Street, Bullens Road and Muriel Street. This initiative was not only to look at the issues we face regarding litter within our local community, but in preparation for the Everton Football Match on Saturday. As a reward, our children will be attending the Everton v Huddersfield game.

Thank you to all our children who took part.

Speed Operation Work done by the Mini Police

 

On Monday 27th November 2017, our Mini Police worked in partnership with Merseyside Police from Walton Lane Police Station and Billy Bradshaw from Merseytravel.
The children set up a courtroom in the Police Station displaying some of the road safety safe messages they had designed. One of the fundamental British Values in terms of the rule of law, creates an attitude of accountability and respect towards laws. Drivers who were speeding were stopped at the roadside and escorted into our Mini Police Courtroom set up at Walton Lane Police Station. Members of the public who were speeding  were addressed and questioned by our local Police and Mini Police.
Some drivers said they were very sorry for their actions and the reaction from some was that it was more 'hard hitting' than being fined. Our children were extremely confident in their roles, well behaved and were fantastic ambassadors for our school.

 

It was lovely to have an email from Gill Bell from Community Engagement Team at Merseyside Police Headquarters,

 

"Sounds, and looks  like you had an amazing day.  I am going to be holding your school up as best practice for the other Mini Police schools as I think you have taken such an innovative approach to Mini Police."

Teaching Drug Awareness to our year 5 children.

Today our Year 5 children visited LFC Reducate. Working in partnership with Young Addaction, our children were given the opportunity to gain an understanding of the dangers of drugs and alcohol. They received certificates as ambassadors of Gwladys Street School, enabling them to share their safe messages to other children within our school.

High Sherriff Visits Gwladys Street - Friday 24th November 2017

 

Our KS2 children had a visit from the High Sheriff, Stephen Burrows. He told the children how he represented the Queen in his daily duties, his role and explained the history of his uniform. The children were then given an opportunity to ask lots of questions.

Walk on a Wednesday

Our walking to school initiative commences in  December.

Today 23rd November 2017, our children leaned about the health benefits of walking to school and how it can also help our environment. They also met Strider our mascot. 

The children will be working hard to achieve their badges as rewards for walking to school.

Mini Police investigates again!

Date: 22nd November 2017

Time: All day

The Mini Police children attended a road safety event in the city centre. They witnessed Mersey Fire Service recreate a traffic accident and saw them remove the door and roof from a car to remove a casualty to safety. They delivered safe messages to the public and gave out leaflets, explaining who they were, that they attended Gwladys Street C P and N School and how important their role is within the community. The children were also met the Police Crime Commissioner and The Chief Constable of Merseyside Police. They are fabulous ambassadors to for our school.

 

Email below that was sent to the school after the event.

"The mini police were an absolute credit to Merseyside police, their schools, teachers and parents and we thoroughly enjoyed having them with us at both events. We hope to be able to invite the mini police to future events."

 

Kind regards

Mini Police deliver an important assembly

The mini police completed their first assignment to deliver very important messages to Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 children about safety for Bon Fire Night. The mini police designed a power point about how to keep safe on November 5th and why inappropriate behaviour is unacceptable on Mischief Night.

The mini police also took questions from the children and wore their new uniforms.

Well done.

Look below to see what happened in the previous academic years.

Spanish day in FS2! To celebrate the end of our Holidays topic we have had a wonderful trip to sunny Spain! This morning we travelled on an aeroplane to Spain helped by a few cabin crew and pilots from Year 6. We loved checking in, having our baggage checked and experiencing take off too! Next we learnt how to count in Spanish with a visit from Miss Booth, made Spanish flags, learnt how to flamenco dance and collaged our own paella which looked good enough to eat! This afternoon we went to our own al fresco tapas restaurant in our garden and tasted lots of Spanish tapas which was yummy!! We had a great day!

On Monday 10th July, some lucky pupils had the chance to visit Anfield to take part in a draw for next seasons allocation of match tickets for schools in the local area. Take a look at the pictures below and see the latest news for more information on the match tickets we have received. 

We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who collected coins for our coin challenge! We had great fun using the coins to make a giant school badge and we are pleased to announce that we raised an amazing £322 for school funds! Well done to 1GB who were the winners of the competition as they managed to fill an impressive three jars with coins!!

Year 5 Dot Art competition entries 2017 were inspired by their Space topic. We looked at images of space, the Northern Lights, asteroids, meteor showers and used the technique of Batik wax resist and Brusho powder to create our space images with interesting textures and colours.

Sainsbury's Active Kids Picture Activity - 25th April 2016

 

On Monday, selected pupils from years 3 to 6 were chosen to represent the school at a special photoshoot with two sporting athletes; Lucy Bronze (Manchester City footballer) and Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool player)! 

 

The children had lots of fun meeting sporting heroes and having their photos taken (like celebrities). However, their favourite part was challenging each other in a wind dome area. Everyone had to collect as many Sainsbury's Active Kids vouchers as possible. It wasn't easy, jumping through the air to reach the flying vouchers.

Take a look at the photos below:  

Sainsbury's Active Kids Picture Activity

A group of students from years 4 & 5 have been taking part in a special reading programme that is supported by the Premier League. Each week, the Premier League Readers meet to share their reading interests and habits. They learn new skills and develop the confidence to become a regular reader, who reads for pleasure!

As a reward for their hard work, our school was chosen to visit two start authors; Tom Palmer and Jon Mayhew at both our local football stadiums. Everyone enjoyed finding out the books the authors had written. We enjoyed taking part in a reading quiz and creating our own 'silly story' ideas. 

 

We hope everyone enjoyed the visit and came away with a bigger interest in reading regularly and some good ideas for titles of books they would like to read. 

 

A huge congratulations goes to all our Year 6 entries to the Dot Art Schools competition 2016. Their artwork, inspired by the Pop Art movement of the 1960s, has now been published on the Dot Art Schools website for international exhibition!

Easter School

Year 6 enjoyed many activities with Mrs Haslehurst, Miss Sheridan, Mr Rigby, Miss Townley and Mrs Berry. They ranged from GPS, calculations and reading comprehension. Mrs Berry used the school's new resource Maths a Day which promoted physical activity whilst doing maths - see some photos below. Well done to all the children who attended.

Key Stage One Geography Club

At the beginning of January, we hosted our first ever International Day in school. Throughout the day, we explored different countries and cultures from around the world. Each year group focussed on a different country and had to research and produce work to showcase at the International Day Exhibition. Lots of children prepared and sampled different food from all around the world such as, Polish sausages, Hungarian brownies, English cucumber sandwiches and scones, Romanian and Czech sweet bread. Everyone had fun and enjoyed sampling the different tastes! We also enjoyed learning how to speak some key phrases in different languages. Thanks to all the staff and especially Miss Ania for organising such a wonderful day!
