In a Group with Childwall B, Sacred Heart, Lister B, Booker A and CTK A - Phoenix did really well but unfortunately did not qualify for the Semi- Finals.

 

However, the children did brilliantly well to qualify for the Finals and will return next year better placed to try again.

Orienteering Day, Thursday 20th June, 2019.

 

As part of our KS2 OAA provision at School, we were visited today by an Orienteering specialist.

 

He taught the children how to read and navigate a map, how to use a Map Key and how to plot their way around a pre-determined course.

 

The children had great fun and learnt some valuable new skills too.

Rounders Development & Competition Day, Monday 10th June, 2019 @ Fazakarley High School, Liverpool.

 

On Monday, some year 6 children attended at Fazakerley High School to take part in the first ever Liverpool School Sport Partnership (LSSP) Rounders Development Day.

 

In the morning session the children learned the skills and basic rules needed in order to be able to take part in a game of Rounders. The skills practised included Batting, Bowling and Fielding. In the afternoon session, School were placed into two Groups in order to play some competitive matches.

 

Placed in a Group with three other Schools -  Smithdown, Norman Pannell and Childwall A & B, Phoenix drew one game and lost three.

 

However, a great day was had by all children and they come away from the event having learned new skills and played a sport that they will encounter in Secondary School.

Judo Day, Thursday 6th June, 2019.

 

On Thursday we were visited by our Judo specialist to build on the skills the children acquired from a session in the year.

 

The children were again shown a "break-fall" - a technique used when hitting the mat to break their fall. They were also shown a basic move to throw their opponent off balance and take them down to the mat. 

 

The sessions were a lot more "physical" than the previous occasion and the children showed great courage and determination, having great fun and learning new skills along the way.

Mini Tennis

Year 3/4 Mini Tennis Competition @ The Liverpool Tennis Centre on Wednesday 15th May, 2019

 

A boys and girls team attended at the above mentioned venue to take part in an Inter School Tennis Competition, with places at The City Finals at stake for successful Schools.

 

Placed in a Pool 2 with Hunts Cross B, Anfield Road A, Lister A, St. Vincent de Paul and Sacred Heart - Phoenix won enough boys and girls combined matches, to secure third place in their Pool. This means Phoenix qualify for a place at The City Finals in June.

 

Well done to all.

Highland Games

Year 3&4 Highland Games @ Archbishop Beck Tennis Centre, Friday 3rd May, 2019.

 

On Friday some Year 3 and 4 children took part in the first ever LSSP Highland Games event. 

 

The children took part in some running, jumping and throwing events - the highlights for them being the "welly toss" and "tossing the caber"!!

 

There were some great individual performances, but more importantly, a lot of fun was had by all those who took part.

 

Well done all.

Quik sticks Hockey

Year 5/6 Quiksticks Hockey Competition, Wyncote Sports Ground, Tuesday 30th April, 2019.

 

On Tuesday, some Year 5 and 6 children attended to play a 4-a-side mini Hockey competition.

 

Seven matches were played against Belvedere A, Childwall A, Childwall B, Carleton House, Booker, Belvedere B and Childwall C.

 

Unfortunately, Phoenix won only one game, which is an unfair reflection on how the children did, as they performed brilliantly. Many games were lost by the odd goal and the children did themselves proud, improving with each match.

 

Well done all.

Handball

Year 5/6 Handball Development & Competition Day @ Archbishop BecK Tennis Centre, Friday 26th April, 2019

 

On Friday, some Year 5 and 6 children attended for the first ever LSSP Handball day. This was an activity the children had never tried before.

 

In the morning session the children learned the basic skills and rules of the game and then had a few practice matches. The afternoon session was competition time against other Schools.

 

Placed in Group with Lister A, Norman Pannell, Smithdown, Monksdown and Our Lady's - Phoenix did very well. They won 4 matches - lost 1 - and therefore qualified for the semi finals.

 

In the semi-finals the children did a great job, but lost 3-1 to Lister.

 

However, a great day was had by all and the children came away with experience of a new game which they all really enjoyed playing.

 

Well done

 

Year 5 Kinball @ I M Marsh Campus on Friday 22nd March, 2019.

 

Today some Year 5 children attended at the I M Marsh Campus, Liverpool,  to take part in a Kinball Competition. Kinball is a game involving three teams on the pitch, with the aim being for the designated team to keep the giant Kinball from hitting the floor.

 

This was the first time that the children had ever played Kinball and they did really well. Not only did they learn and then apply the rules of the game against Lister, Lawrence Road, Norman Panel and Monksdown Primary Schools, they also had to employ tactics and strategies in an attempt to outwit their opponents. The children soon learned that Kinball is a fast paced game involving teamwork, co-operation and communication. 

 

A great deal of fun and enjoyment was had by all.

 

 

Year 5 Kinball Competition

On Thursday 21st March, we were visited in School by a Scooter Instructor. He taught the children all about how to ride a Scooter, how to do some Scooter tricks and how to cross the road safely with our Scooters. A great deal of fun was had by all the children who took part.

Scooter Day @ Phoenix Thursday 21st March, 2019

Year 5 Football @ The Liverpool F.C. Academy

 

On Wednesday 20th March, some Year 5 children attended at The Liverpool F.C. Academy to take part in an Inter School Football Competition, the winners of which would go forward to contest the City Finals.

 

Phoenix were placed in Group A with Booker, St. Gregory's, Lawrence Road and Smithtown A. 

 

After the four matches played, Phoenix had drawn two (St. Gregory's & Smithtown A) and lost two, which unfortunately, was not enough to progress to the Semi Finals. However, the children did really well and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, but a special mention must go to Rhys, our Goalkeeper, who pulled off some amazing saves in goal.

 

Well done All.

Year 4 Football Wednesday 13th Feb., 2019 @ The LFC Academy

Year 4 Football Competition @ The Liverpool F.C. Academy on Wednesday 13th Feb., 2019.

 

A team of Year 4 children attended at The L.F.C. Academy and took part in an Inter School Football Competition. Phoenix were placed in a Group with six other Primary Schools - Dove Dale, Blackmoor, Lawrence Road, Lister, Banks Road & Christ the King. 

 

Although the children gave their all and were a little unlucky at times, the standard of play by a great many children was incredibly high and Phoenix failed to win a match and progress through to the Quarter Finals.

 

However, it was a very worthwhile and enjoyable experience for the children - playing football and competing in state of the art facilities.

 

Well done all.

 

Judo Day Tuesday 12th February, 2019.

Judo Day Tuesday 12th February, 2019.

 

We were fortunate enough to have a Judo Teacher visit School today to work with the children and teach them some Judo skills. The children learned that Judo originated in Japan and is a martial art. The children also learned some Japanese words used in Judo such as "Obi" - which is a Judo belt and "Gi" which is a Judo suit. The children were told that "Hajime" means to begin a bout or fight and to win, you must land your opponent on his/her back or keep your opponent pinned down on his/her back for 20 seconds.

Throughout the lesson the children also learned about forward and backward break falls and some Judo "holds". The "hold" the children practised  in the lesson was called "Kese Gatami" - the scarf hold.

Great fun was had by all the children and some new skills and terminology acquired too.

 

Year 2 Matball Competition

Thursday 7th February, 2019.

 

On Thursday 7th Feb., a team of Year 2 children attended at The King’s Leadership Academy in order to take part in an Inter School Matball Competition. This was a game the children were familiar with as they had played it in School PE lessons.

In a Group with four other Schools, Phoenix won two games and lost two and finished in fourth position. This was enough to qualify for the Quarter Finals.

In the Quarter Finals, however, we came up against an inspired performance from our opponents and were soundly beaten.

However, the children had great fun and did amazingly well to get to the Quarters. A special mention must go to Cezar, whose catching on the day was fantastic.

 

Well done to all.

 

On Thursday  31st Jan., some Year 6 children attended at Holly Lodge Girls College, Liverpool, to try their hand at Volleyball.

 

In the morning session, children were taught the basic skills of the game by an experienced Volleyball Coach. In the afternoon session, the children put their newly acquired skills into practice and played an inter school volleyball competition.

 

Phoenix A & B teams were placed in different Groups and although the children performed admirably, none of the School teams progressed to the Quarter Final stages.

 

However, it was a great day enjoyed by everyone and the children now have basic volleyball skills and some actual game experience to assist them at Secondary School and beyond.

 

Well done all.

Year 6 Volleyball Taster Day - Thursday 31st Jan., 2019

Basketball

Year 5 & 6 Basketball Competition at North Liverpool Academy on Tuesday 15th Jan., 2019.

 

On 15th January a team of Year 5 boys attended at the abovementioned venue to take part in an inter school Basketball Competition. For most of the children, this was the first time they had played on a Basketball court with actual baskets to aim in to!

 

Placed in a  group with six other schools, Phoenix unfortunately lost all six games. However, as the competition progressed, the performances of the team improved dramatically and several matches were lost by only a sole basket. 

 

The children can be very proud of the improvement they made on the day and the good thing to remember is that these children were all in Year 5, playing in a Year 5/6 competition. This means they can all return next year with their skills refined and with valuable experience gained of what is involved and what to expect.

Year 5&6 Volleyball Taster Day and Competition

 

On Wednesday 9th January, 2019, some Year 5 and 6 children attended at Holly Lodge Girls College, Liverpool, to try their hand at Volleyball.

 

In the morning session, children were taught the basic skills of the game by an experienced Volleyball Coach. In the afternoon session, the children put their newly acquired skills into practice and played an inter school volleyball competition.

 

Phoenix were place in Group D with Smithdown, St. Margaret's, Windsor and Barlows B.

 

Phoenix won two of the matches and lost two matches - one by just one point. However, this was not enough to progress through to the semi-finals.

 

However, it was a great day enjoyed by everyone and the children now have basic volleyball skills and some actual game experience to assist them at Secondary School and beyond.

 

Well done all.

Year 5&6 Water Polo Competition

 

On Tuesday 11th December, 2018, some Year 5 and 6 children attended at The Liverpool Aquatics Centre to take part in an Inter School Water Polo Competition. This was the first time that any of the children had played Water Polo.

In a group with five other Schools, the children soon found out that Water Polo is a very physically demanding sport, requiring a high level of stamina and endurance, as well as skill.

Phoenix won one game and lost four, but each child gave a very good account of himself/herself and had a lot of fun, even if they were exhausted by the end of the afternoon!

 

Well done to all those who took part.

Year 3 Football

Year 3 Inter School Football Competition at The Liverpool F.C. Academy

 

On Tuesday 13th November, some Year 3 boys attended at The Liverpool F.C. Academy for an Inter School 5-a-side football competition. For most children, this was the first time they had played an organised, formal football match.

 

In a Group with St. Swithins, Liverpool College, Banks Road, Beacon and St. Annes Stanley Primary Schools, Phoenix didn't register a win, but a great experience was had by all involved at a state of the art football facility.

 

Well done everyone.

Skate Boarding

Whole School Skate Boarding Taster

 

On Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th November, School was visited by a Skate Board Teacher who worked with children from Reception up to Year 6. Liam, a Skate Boarder with 15 years experience, taught the children how where to stand on a board, how to get on a board and maintain their balance safely and how to propel themselves along. He also showed children how to stop safely, which was vitally important!

      Liam, who is able to perform nearly 100 tricks on his board, also showed the children a few simple tricks that many of the children were able to execute. Well done to those who managed.

      Liam also informed the children that Skate Boarding will be, for the first time, an official sport in the 2020 Olympics and because of this, Skate Boarding will have a much higher profile.

      All children really enjoyed the experience and although there were a few tumbles, the children showed great resilience to get up and back on their Boards to try again.

      Well done everyone.

Year 1 Football

Year 1 Football @ The Liverpool F.C. Academy.

 

On Tuesday 6th November, a team of Year 1 boys attended at The Liverpool F.C. Academy to take part in an Inter School Football Competition. For most children this was the first time they had participated in a formal football match, but they quickly adapted to the pitch and the rules.

Unfortunately, Phoenix lost all of their matches against other Schools, but this was not important. The children had a great experience with their friends, playing football in a state of the art facility and hopefully this will inspire them to keep playing and enjoying football.

Well done to all those who took part.

 

 

 

Year 5 & 6 Dodge Ball Competition Wednesday 26th September, 2018.

 

On Wednesday 26th September, some Year 5 and 6 children from School attended at Calderstones School, Liverpool, to take part in an Inter School Dodge Ball Competition.

 

In a group with three other Schools, Phoenix won one and lost two of their three Group games.

 

Although we didn't progress from the Group Stages, the children had a great time competing against other Schools and improving their knowledge, understanding and skills in Dodge Ball.

 

A big well done to all.

 

Skip2bfit

Skip2bfit Visit Wednesday 5th September, 2018.

 

On Wednesday 5th September we were visited by Mr Gibson, the Skip2bfit specialist who spoke to the children about the health and fitness benefits of skipping and the importance of trying your best and never giving up.

 

All children then had a go at the Skip2bfit challenge, which involved skipping for two minutes and recording how many skips you achieved. Children then, after a rest, had to skip for another two minutes, trying to better their first attempt - which many children did.

 

Mr Gibson then delivered a session after school for staff, which was great fun, but which left many staff appreciating just how hard skipping for a period of time actually is and how very unfit they actually are!!

 

Thank you to Mr Gibson and well done to all the children for persevering and never giving up.

FFT Girls Football Competition Friday 13th July, 2018

Food for Thought Inter School Girls Football Competition - Friday 13th July, 2018 @ Christ the King Primary School, Liverpool

 

On Friday 13th July some Year 6 girls attended at the above mentioned venue to take part in an Inter School Football Competition. For some of the girls, this was the first time they had ever taken part in a competitive match.

 

Placed in Group 2, the girls competed against OLA, OLI, St. Gregory's and Much Woolton and won two games, lost one game and drew one. 

 

There were some fantastic performances on the day from Aisha in goal, Emma at centre back and Hida in midfield, but all the girls were fantastic.

 

A great day and experience was had by all, topped off with a superb BBQ lunch provided by Food for Thought.

 

Well done all.

KS1 Fun Sportathon Day Tuesday 10th July, 2018.

 

On Tuesday 10th July, some Year 1 children attended at the I M Marsh Campus for an Inter School Sportathon day organised by LSSP - a day where the children tried out different activities that they may not have experienced before.

On the day, children took part in:

Kinball

Balance Bikes

Inflatable Assault Course

Orienteering

Yoga

 

It was a very hot day, but all the children had great fun.

 

Key Stage 1 Athletics Competition Monday 2nd July, 2018.

All children competed in all the events which were:

50m Sprint

Standing Long Jump

Speed Bounce

Howler Throw

 

On an incredibly hot day, all the children gave 100% and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

 

Well done everyone.

 

 

Yr 5&6 Athletics Monday 25th June, 2018.

Year 5&6 Athletics Heats Monday 25th June, 2018.

 

On Monday 25th June, ten Year 6 children (5 boys and 5 girls) attended at Childwall Sports & Science Academy to take part in Primary Inter School Athletics Heats.

Every child took park in every activity, those being the 75m Sprint, Standing Long Jump, 600m Distance Run and the Howler Throw. Points were awarded  according to times and distances achieved.

On an incredibly hot day, with temperatures in the high 20's, all children gave their best efforts and recorded some very good times and distances. Notable performances came from Aisha in the Standing Long Jump, Emma in the Howler Throw and Abass in the 75m Sprint.

 

From thirteen Schools competiting, only the top four progressed to the City Finals and unfortunately Phoenix finished in sixth place.

 

However, a great day and experience was had by all.

 

Year 5&6 Volleyball Coaching and Competition Day

Year 5&6 Volleyball Coaching and Competition Day

 

On Friday 18th May, some Year 6 children from School attended at Notre Dame RC College, Liverpool, to take part in an Inter School Volleyball Coaching and Competition Day.

 

In the morning session, the children were coached by two professional Volleyball players and practiced the key skills of the game - the serve, the dig, the volley pass and the spike or smash. They were also introduced to the basic rules which they would need for the afternoon competition.

 

In the afternoon, Schools were placed into Groups of four - each School playing each other in a timed match. Bearing in mind that this was the first time that the children had played Volleyball, Phoenix did very well -winning one match, losing one and agonisingly losing their final Group match to a point scored by the opposition with the last touch of the ball!

 

Despite not progressing from the Group Stages, the children had a very enjoyable day learning new skills and taking part in a previously unknown sport.

 

Well done all.

Lacrosse Competition

Year 6 Lacrosse Competition, Tuesday 17th April, 2018.

 

On Tuesday 17th April, some Year 6 children attended at the Toxteth Firefit Hub to take part in an Inter School Lacrosse Competition. Preparation for this competition had taken place in curriculum time, where the children had recently completed a Unit of Lacrosse as part of their PE lessons.

 

Placed in a Group with three other Schools, Phoenix drew the first match and narrowly lost the two remaining matches. However, as the matches progressed, Phoenix performances improved dramatically, but unfortunately, we did not qualify for the semi final places.

 

However, as always, this was a very valuable and enjoyable experience for the children, in a sport which is not as "mainstream" as other sports presently covered in Schools.

 

Well done to all those who took part.

Year 5 KInball

Year 5 Kinball Event

 

On Friday 13th April, 2018, a group of Year 5 children attended at the Greenbank Sports Academy to take part in the first ever Inter Schools Kinball event. 

 

Kinball is a game played by three teams on one pitch at the same time, with the aim to keep a giant ball from touching the floor once it has been hit.

 

As this was the first time any of the children had actually played Kinball, it took the children a few games to get into the swing of things, but after that they soon got the hang of it and put in some superb performances.

 

As this was the first ever event, it was not played as a competition with winners and losers. The aim was to improve the skills, team work and the knowledge and understanding of the game for the children to compete and have fun....which they did do!

 

Well done to all.

School Archery Visit

School Archery Visit Monday 23rd & Tuesday 24th March, 2018.

 

Prior to the Easter break we were visited at School by an Outside Provider who specialised in Archery. 

 

This is a sport which many children have seen on TV at the Olympic Games, but very few, if any, have participated in.

 

Our visitor talked about the bow (which is very light) and the arrows and how both are different weights and lengths according to age and ability and all children had the opportunity to have a go.

 

Despite some poor weather at times, all the children were introduced to a new sport, learned a great deal and had a lot of fun.

Year 4 Football Competition at The Liverpool F.C. Academy Monday 19th March, 2018

 

On Monday 19th March some Year 4 boys attended at Liverpool F.C.'s Academy to take part in an Inter School 7-a-side Football competition. For some of the children, this was the first time they had played in a team situation and the first time they had played in a competitive environment.

 

Placed in Group 1, the boys played five matches in total and unfortunately failed to win any. However, there were some very strong performances, especially from Mohamed.

 

This was an incredible experience for the children, and although it would have been nice to score some goals and win some matches, the children will never forget playing at one of the best football arenas in the country.

 

Well done all.

Year 5 and Year 3 Kinball Taster Session Friday 9th March, 2018

Kinball Taster Session, Friday 9th March, 2018

 

On Friday, Year 5 and Year 3 were visited by an Outside provider who taught the children all about a new, slightly unusual game called Kinball.

 

Kinball is a game played by three teams where the aim of the game is to keep the over-sized ball off the ground.

 

After several ball familiarity drills, the children took part in some actual Kinball games and a great deal of fun and enjoyment was had by all.

 

 

Year 6 Football at The Liverpool F.C. Academy Monday 5th March, 2018.

Year 6 Football at The Liverpool F.C. Academy, Monday 5th March, 2018.

 

On Monday 5th March, some Year 6 children from School attended at The Liverpool F.C. Academy to take part in an Inter School 7-a-side Football Competition.

 

Placed In a group with five other Schools, Phoenix Primary won one game and lost four. However, this was still a very good performance from the team who have not had a lot of Football this year. There were very good performances from Abass and Emma in particular.

 

Results aside, this was still a great experience for our children playing, on superb 4G pitches at The Liverpool F.C. Academy, a venue where Liverpool F.C. are aiming to produce young players who will graduate to their Reserve and 1st Teams.

 

Well done all.

 

 

Year 5 & 6 Inter School Table tennis Competition Thursday 1st March 2018

Year 5 & 6 Table Tennis Competition Thursday 1st March, 2018 @ Calderstones School.

 

On Thursday 1st March, some Year 5 and 6 children from School, attended at an Inter School Table Tennis competition. The children who participated were those who had been attending an after School Table Tennis Club run by Mr Finlay on a Tuesday night.

 

After only three weeks of practice and playing, the children came up against some very strong players from other Schools. However, each child won at least one match, which was very pleasing.

 

Unfortunately, we did not manage to progress through from the Group Stages, but it was a very worthwhile learning experience for the children and a lot of fun and enjoyment was had by all.

 

Well done.

Year 5&6 Basketball Competition Wednesday 10th January 2018

On Wednesday 10th January, 2018, a team of 8 children from Phoenix Primary School attended at St Margaret's Academy, Liverpool, to take part in a Basketball competition, the winners of which would progress to the City Finals.

 

Phoenix Primary were in Pool 1 and played 4 matches against other local Schools. After those matches we returned figures of Played 4, Won 3 and Drawn 1. This meant the children qualified for the semi-finals as Pool Winners.

 

In the semi -finals we played Childwall C of E Primary School B team, the runners up in Pool 2. After a very close game, with chances at either basket, the semi-final finished 0-0, which meant a sudden death set shot shoot out - 3 players from each team shooting off individually against each other. 

 

After both Schools had had their 3 shots, the scores were tied at 2-2. Each School then nominated a 4th and 5th player to shoot off against each other. After 5 shots each, the scores were tied at 3-3, which meant it went to sudden death (first to score) with the original No.1 sudden death players again shooting off against each other. Unfortunately, the Phoenix attempt looped out and the Childwall attempt was successful, which meant Childwall progressed to the Final.

 

Although the children were very disappointed at losing in the semi-finals, they performed brilliantly. The were unbeaten throughout the entire competition and only lost by the narrowest of margins. Many positives can be taken from the competition and everyone should be very proud of how they performed.

Year 3/4 Girls Football , Wednesday 13th December, 2017.

 

On Wednesday 13th December some Year 3 & 4 girls attended at the Toxteth Firefit Hub to take part in an Inter School 6-a-side indoor football competition. For most children, this was the first time they had competed for the school in a sports competition.

After some very close matches, with only the odd goal in it, Phoenix Primary School unfortunately failed to progress from the Group Stages. However, a great afternoon was had by all who took part and some valuable experience has been gained for future competitions.

Well done to all those who took part.
