Everton Primary School

Everyone. Everyday. Everlasting.

May 2022

At the end of April it was lovely to see our Reception and Nursery children so animated as they designed and created shields for St George to celebrate our patron saint on 23rd April. The children were told the story of St George and the dragon and then used their shields to act it out.


The beginning of May saw our Year 3 and 4 children head to Kingswood at Dearne Valley for a residential trip. Over the three days that they were there they took part in activities such as raft building, archery, abseiling, a high ropes course, orienteering and aeroball amongst others. The children also learnt valuable social and emotional life lessons such as being away from home, independence, bravery and experiencing activities that they may not have done previously or do again.


Next saw the beginning of the Year 6 SATs Test week. Many of our Year 6 children have been at Everton Primary School since the age of 3 years and lots of our staff have watched them grow and develop into the lovely children that they are. At Everton we measure our children by so much more than test results. Our children are kind, caring and thoughtful; our children can sing, dance and take part in numerous sports; our children are clever in practical and interactive tasks; and each one of our children are special and unique in their own way. They have already passed our ‘EverTeam’ test. That being said, we are incredibly proud of how they all applied themselves during the SATs Test week and in school since. They were great role models for our Year 2 children who have now begun their SATs Tests. It is amazing to see how their young minds work as they answer questions and show their working out.


This month our Class 3 children are finally performing Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’ in the Village Hall. You might wonder why we are doing ‘A Christmas Carol’ in May…well, unfortunately due to the high number of Covid-19 cases in school during the Christmas period the children were unable to perform it at that time. Therefore, they did all the hard work and preparation for the performance without actually getting the opportunity to showcase it to a live audience. From what I have seen, it should be fabulous!


Please can I take this opportunity to thank parents and members of the public that continue to support the school by offering their help, support and opportunities for the children at Everton Primary School.



Best Wishes,
