Isla has started her week of home learning off with her Confirmation RE tasks. She has written out this beautiful piece of scripture from the Book of Isaiah in preparation for work around the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit. She has also made a beautiful stained glass window representing the Holy Spirit.
Niamh‘s brain must be exhausted after her mathematical day:
Assumpta has even found time to bake a cake with her siblings! Yummy!
Liam LJ has also started off with his Confirmation task, learning about the 6 gifts of the HS and decorating his stained glass window:
Despite finding them tricky to begin with, Hannah has persevered and completed this week’s maths challenge amongst many other tasks. She even found time for some baking with William (his chocolate cookie recipe!) via FaceTime!
Niamh has been back on it today mainly with some English and Science!
Emily must be all calculated out after today’s maths marathon:
She’s also been busy introducing her mum to Just Dance, learning how to dutch braid (missing Hartwell’s Hairdressers), walking11000 steps, making dens and sleeping in them and baking (not that she saved me any!)! Busy bee!
Lenten crafts, an outdoor hunt and natural art!
Please remember suncream and sunhats tomorrow! 🙂
Well done Annabelle. You’ve clearly worked incredibly hard this morning!
Year 6 followed our Lenten footprints to show their prayer friends in Reception each station of the cross.
Year 6’s unit of art last half term was Lino Printing. They each chose a symbol which they felt represented their chosen Confirmation Saint in some way. After being taught the skills and techniques by Miss Quinn (and with a few cuts along the way!), the children have now completed their final piece and we’re sure you’ll all agree that they look AMAZING!
We couldn’t be any more proud and pleased with how they have all turned out. The amount of thought, care and effort each child put in to them is clear to see. Well done, Year 6!

Finally, we have a few trips planned in the next few weeks.

We look forward to a busy but exciting 6 weeks!
As well as learning the rhyme ‘London Bridge is Falling Down’ we have also been busy building bridges this week, with the wooden blocks. Nursery have also been doing lots of cutting and sticking activities, fine motor skills activities and handwriting. We hope you enjoy your heart biscuits which we have made and decorated for Valentine’s Day. Next week our phoneme of the week is ‘e’ and our Nursery rhyme will be ‘Hey Diddle Diddle’. Batton down the hatches for the weekend!
