Well done Year 6!

Year 5 put up a good fight towards the end but Year 6 had been consistent throughout and as a result won this week’s TimesTables RockStars Tournament with 29,082 points v 19,479 points.

Times Tables Rockstars — William Harding School

Well done to everyone who took part especially Liam G in Y6 and Niko in Y5 who were the top scorers for each class!

Let’s see if Year 5 can secure the win next week!

Laptops

I have configured a small number of the school laptops so that they are available for any children/families who are really struggling to manage home learning due to either not having a computer available at home or having several children all needing simultaneous access.

If you would like to have one of these on loan, please send me an email and we can arrange collection or delivery.

Day 4 in the All Souls’ house…

Today, we have been busy doing lots of exercise and working on our teamwork through games like rounders and basketball! We have also been creating more artwork:

First, we completed a 1 mile run together:

We then had a climb on our new climbing frame:

Finally, we went on a hunt for signs of Spring before making these beautiful collages:

 

Another sunshine-filled day!

 

Lenten crafts, an outdoor hunt and natural art!

Please remember suncream and sunhats tomorrow! 🙂

One of the most powerful things we can do is pray…

We shared in a beautiful prayer service this morning in which we heard about an amazing thing that Jesus does when his friend Lazarus becomes sick and dies.

We discussed how unfortunately sometimes, just like Lazarus in today’s gospel, people do get sick. When this happens they go to the hospital where doctors and nurses work hard to care for them and try to make them better. We talked about how thankful we are for all of our NHS staff for their hard work and dedication during our time of need.

We are currently busy making our Lenten crosses so that we can use them to offer our prayers to God because we know that our prayers are powerful.

Please join us in prayer!

Pope Francis has called on the leaders of all the Christian churches, communities and confessions worldwide, as well Christians everywhere, to join together in praying the Our Father on March 25 to implore God to rid the world of the coronavirus pandemic that is wreaking havoc everywhere.
