Throughout the year we have a range of different events on at school, which are showcased in these pages:
READING RECOVERY AWARDS LONDON
On 10th June 2016 we travelled to London to collect our Reading Recovery Awards. This year we were awarded 3 awards.

Mrs Cooper our fantastic Reading Recovery Teacher received a much deserved award for all the work she does at St Aidan’s to ensure that every child reads with confidence and enjoyment. She is so determined to help children and inspires all of us to do better each day
- Inspirational MAnager of the Year. This was awarded to Miss Kenneway (Headteacher) , however she says that it is for everyone. She was awarded it for ensuring Reading has a high priority in school and supporting staff to make it fun and a priority in every class.
We were so proud. Last year we won School of the Year. We have the full collection now!
While we were in London we visited some of the sights including Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and Downing Street. We travelled on the tube and had a wonderful time. Have a look at our photographs below.
Every year we have many Christmas activities. We all get together to share a Christmas Meal. It is a lovely celebration and brings us together as a family- the family of St Aidan’s. We visit local homes and sing for the elderly residents. we also perform a play. This Year, Year 3 performed It’s a Wonderful Life
Visit by Jamie Caragher
Jamie Carragher came to school on Wednesday 17th December
We are taught by the Jamie Carragher Soccer School every week in school and it was amazing to see our hero in school. Jamie answered some of our questions. He was really honest and very funny.
It was a brilliant day for all the children and staff
Food Bank Collection
On Friday 12th December we had a Christmas Jumper Day and all brought a tin or packet of food to school to donate to children less fortunate than ourselves in our area.
Some Year 6 pupils took the food to the Food Bank Distribution Centre in Kirkby. We hope that many people will have a better Christmas this year thanks to our donations.
At Christmas we were asked to perform in Huyton Town Centre to launch the start of the Festive Season. We sang carols and danced to some Christmas songs then…the Christmas lights were switched on! They looked lovely! We felt very proud of ourselves for performing infront of so many people.
