Royal Liverpool Philharmonic - Musical Tracks
In the Spring term Key Stage 2 children visited the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic to watch the ‘Musical Tracks’ concert. The orchestra performed classical music by composers such as Olivier Truan, Antonin Dvorak and Leonard Bernstein. The concert focused on the theme ‘Migration’ and schools from all over Liverpool joined together to take part singing a song they had been learning about Hope Street. It was an unforgettable experience for all of the children. KS1 are really excited about their trip to the Philharmonic this term!
Year 5 Art Bytes Competition
This year our school has taken part in a national art competition called Art Bytes. This competition is open to year 5 pupils and year 9 pupils. Our year 5 pupils worked hard producing some beautiful competition entries both in school and at home which were then submitted online and are now live on the Art Bytes website. From these entries a judging panel selected the top three artworks from our school. The top three artworks have been voted for by friends, family and members of the public and the final decision for the winning artwork will be announced on the Art Bytes website this Friday 5th May. The winner will then have their art displayed in a virtual gallery. You can see some of the wonderful artworks below.

Bootle Literary Festival
As part of Bootle Children's Literary Festival, our children had the exciting opportunity to work with the inspirational Liverpool poet, Levi Tafari.

Christ Church's first ever Latin club began last term!
The children learnt how to introduce themselves and greet one another in Latin. They also built a tiny replica of an Ancient Roman kitchen and labelled all of the appliances using the Latin vocabulary. They had a fantastic time with Mrs.Kerr and were able to link the vocabulary to our year 4 Ancient Rome topic!
