This year, our school was fortunate to be awarded Artmarks Gold award for all of our efforts with our creative curriculum. We celebrated this wonderful achievement by holding a whole school assembly, where we watched a video, reminding us of all of the amazing work that we have done for the Arts. We then watched a performance from Hillside choir, who sang the song 'When I grow up' beautifully, before we announced our new Humanities and the Arts ambassadors.


Pantomine Trip

Christmas Performances

What a lovely festive term we have had in school! EYFS and KS1 have delivered four wonderful performances of the Nativity, where they retold the Christmas story through narrators and some lovely singing. Whilst, KS2 have been working hard preparing for their carol concert which they performed for parents. We are definitely getting in the Christmas spirit with all of these carols being sung around school.


Year 3 Drumming

Year 3 have been fortunate to have Gafro from Sefton Music Services coming to teach them drumming during the Spring term. Gafro has been teaching the children how to play the djembe drums which originate from West Africa. He teaches different rhythms that the children have to copy and repeat, while playing they explore the correct use of the drum hitting the centre and then the edge which impacts the dynamics (volume). The rhythms will vary in tempo and the children work on their listening skills and performing skills as he splits them into two groups and gives them the opportunity to play for the other group. Children then are able to appraise the music that they have heard. 

Hillside Art Gallery

Last week, Year 4 were lucky enough to be invited to Hillside High School to visit their art exhibition. They spent their time exploring the different artwork that the children at Hillside have created and celebrating their achievements. 

Royal Liverpool Philharmonic - Musical Tracks

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!

Latin Club



Hello Everyone!

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!
