In Year 2 we have been learning about why the lotus flower is important in Buddhism. Then we had a go at drawing them. I was absolutely amazed with all the children’s attempts. Well done everyone! We definitely have some artists in the making.
Today Year 3 and 4 celebrated mass with Father Paul and Deacon Paul. We learned about making the right choices, staying on the right path and not being tempted by others.
Thank you to everyone who came along to support Year 3 and 4 today. It was a lovely mass. The readers did an excellent job and the children sang their hearts out and were very respectful.
As part of our Design and Technology topic, we visited Morrisons to select our ingredients for our sandwiches. We had an interesting afternoon, finding out about seasonality of certain foods and budgeting so we didn’t overspend! We’re really looking forward to making our sandwiches tomorrow! Watch this space!
We started out our maths learning this week by sorting skittles into a tally chart and then making a pictogram. It was a lot of fun but it did make us very hungry!
You are invited to Year Three and Four’s mass tomorrow. Mass will begin at 09:15AM. We hope to see you there!
A big well done to all members of Year 5 for rehearsals, learning lines and singing songs to fill us with love!
Thanks also go out to the great turn out of parents we had! Thank you as well for all your help with costuming and being willing audiences for practices at home.
Year 5 ended our week with a lovely class assembly this morning on the theme of St. Valentine.
Through their clearly spoken words, beautiful singing and some fantastic role play (in addition to some rather funky outfits!), they taught us all about why we celebrate this special feast day.
Well done Year 5, Mr Rolison, Miss McGinn, Miss McGaffney and all of our friends and families that were able to join us.
Year 6 planned and shared a beautiful prayer service for their prayer friends on the theme of St. Valentine.
Year 6 have been comparing and give reasons for variations in how components function, including the on/off position of switches, in Science this week! They’re pretty much qualified electricians now!
