This morning, Hillside are at the Netball World Cup! It’s a REALLY exciting match!
Year 6 spent a wonderful afternoon at Birkenhead Park participating in a ‘Blue Heart’ day with lots of other schools across Birkenhead celebrating all things we love about our community. We helped refurbish the park’s forest school, participated in a ‘ban the bread’ workshop and looked at all the wonderful artwork produced by the different schools in the area.
Today, Foundation Stage enjoyed a Teddy Bears Picnic. What a great enhancement to their topic.
Year 5 had a great day designing, building and presenting their boats to Alex, Ruth, Mr. Morris and Mr. Farrell.
They all worked well as a team and had different roles.
After doing lots of writing about The Borrowers we made our own plates and meals ready for our Borrower Picnic.
Yesterday morning, year 6 spent an exciting few hours with Hi Impact learning all about the circulatory system. Some really brave children even had a go at dissecting hearts! Not for the feint hearted!
Hillside were very proud of Year 5 and Year 6 when they performed their end of year play this week. They all did a wonderful job.
Y2 had a great time playing foot golf this morning. We found it hard at first but improved a lot over the course of the morning.
Year 5 had a great time at HMS Eaglet in Liverpool. We built rockets, learnt about jobs in the Royal Navy and then got active by taking part in bungee run races. A fun time was had by all.
Today we had our first ever ukulele concert. The children made the school very proud, as always!
In the Hillside forest Year 3 spent some time starting fires. What an amazing skill to learn.
Year 1 went to Liverpool today. They went to the World Museum and the Walker Art Gallery. There is nothing they didn’t learn or sketch!
Our wonderful musicians performed superbly at the concert this afternoon. Lots of practise goes into a performance like this and they all did themselves proud.
Today Foundation 2 spent time in the garden seeing how many mini-beasts they could find.
Today, Years 4, 5 and 6 went to the Williamson Art Gallery to enjoy a classic Shakespeare play.
Year 5 had a great time learning chess today. We played some good games with the pawns that involved a lot of strategy. I think we have some aspiring world chess champions among us!
Y5 had a really good lesson looking at what it might be like being a refugee. We discussed what items we might have to take if we had to leave in a hurry. We then had to justify our choices.
It was interesting to learn about why some people have to leave their homes and move to another place. It made us realise how lucky we are to live where we live.
Today, Year 3 enjoyed learning all about refugees.
Today, Year 3 had a visit from Chester Zoo to learn all about how they can act for wildlife!
