Y5 Trip to Croxteth Country Park Farm, by Mrs Harris

Date: 2nd May 2024 @ 10:37pm

Year 5’s trip to Croxteth Country Park Farm, where we learnt all about the life processes of the different animals on the farm and then got to interact with the animals (helping the farmers to feed and groom them).

We also visited a special, walled garden, which was attached to Croxteth Hall and was just like the magical garden we have been reading about in ‘Tom’s Midnight Garden’.

Enterprise Day 2024 - how we spent our hard earned profit πŸ“ˆ, by Mrs Harris

Date: 10th Feb 2024 @ 6:58pm

Year 3 raised a total of £43.75 during our enterprise afternoon! The children decided to buy books and stationery. Each class now has a set of 8 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' books and a stacking pencil each. 

From planning to making, advertising to selling, the children had a great time building their enterprise skills, which I'm sure will help them in the future.

Thank you to all the children in OLSE for supporting Year 3!


Enterprise Day Marketing Videos and Posters, by Mrs Harris

The children had a wonderful time during the preparation for Enterprise Day 2024!

Their entrepreneurial skills were certainly put to the test and they all did so well.

Modern life means our young people need to be resilient, innovative and not afraid to experiment - all important for entrepreneurs.  

We are using Enterprise Day to develop a range of skills in our pupils. These skills include:- team work, financial literacy, organising and planning, using initiative, negotiation, taking risks, creativity and innovation.

A key part of enterprise is the making of goods, followed by the marketing and selling of these goods. 

Take a look at our presentation / marketing videos and see what you like the look of 😊

As part of their trip, they were able learn about how the animals were cared for and looked after throughout each stage of their life cycle and were then able to take part in some of the day to day activities involved in caring for the animals and assisting them with some of their key life processes in order that they might grow healthy and strong


Whilst also at the Country Park, the children went on a tour of the beautiful Victorian Walled Gardens attached to Croxteth Manor House and learnt about some of the flowers and plants within them. They then sketched aspects of the garden as inspiration for their descriptive writing in English
