During our maths lessons this week, we have been learning how to calculate with decimals using money. Year 4 were tasked with finding out the cost of an initial stationery order for Year 4; we then rounded each item to the nearest pound to calculate the cost for the whole school. The children were shocked at the cost of whiteboard pens and other items that we use daily!
During this week, we have looked at the journey of the water cycle- we enjoyed researching this. In groups, we tried to answer the question, How does GPS work? As part of our English unit on instruction, we wrote about how to create a badge for science day! Our creations are in the pictures above! Look out for our class picture later of us all looking like super scientists!
Year 2 enjoyed a wonderful morning this morning filled with music and singing. Our rehearsals paid off as we wowed everyone with our performance of ‘Under the Sea’! I hope you like our seaweed dancing!
Year 6 visited Church today to pray the Stations of the Cross. We visited each of the 14 stations that commemorate Jesus’ last day on Earth. During the mini pilgrimage, we moved from station to station, recalling and meditating on specific events from the day of His condemnation.
Current estimated arrival time is 3.50pm at All Souls.
Year 5 are leaving Alton Castle after an excellent few days. Scheduled back at 4PM. See website and Twitter for updates.
Yesterday 17 children from Y2-6 ran in the Catholic Individual Cross Country race. The race was held at Bablake fields and had around 300 children take part.
The girls ran first and all ran brilliantly. First across the line for All Souls in 24th place was Lily form Y6. The rest of the girls all followed shortly after giving us a total team score of 176.
The next race was an incredible race from start to finish. Lorcan from Y6 ran superbly throughout and finished in 1st place. He was closely followed by the other boys who also all ran an incredible race. The Boys finished with a very impressive team score of 87.
Great effort by everyone, well done! We will find out where we finished as a team later next week.
Next race is Tuesday 26th March, this will be the Catholic Relay Cross Country.
