Monday and Friday
We had a fantastic time at a Yoga workshop! We enjoyed exploring a jungle and creating different poses to represent different animals that we saw on our journey. We found some balancing positions very tricky! We had lots of fun making animal noises and enjoyed developing our love for Yoga even more!
We enjoyed a visit to the church to see how different it looked during Lent. We talked about what signs and symbols we could see (or not!) in the church. We noticed the use of purple cloth as a sign of preparation and that there were no flowers in the church. We also looked at the crucifix and talked about how the cross is a symbol of Lent and why it is so significant to Catholics. The children also remembered that we could not say some special words of praise during Lent as we save them all up!
We are on a journey!
We talked about how Lent is a journey to get to know God. We went on our own journey and stopped at different points to explore ways we can grow closer to God on this journey. We looked at Praying, Giving, Fasting and saying sorry for the things we have done wrong. We recorded our ideas on class posters.
We had a fantastic time dancing like our favourite superhero characters today! We developed a whole dance and we moved like Hulk, Ironman, Super Girl and more! We were fantastic at listening and really enjoyed ourselves.
World Book Day!
We had a fantastic time celebrating our favourite books and characters. We looked amazing in our fancy dress! We brought in our favourite books to share and we enjoyed shared reading time with our year 6 buddies. We were disappointed when we had to put the books away! We enjoyed writing our own books, making book marks and sharing our scrap books from home.
As part of our mission to look after our world we worked alongside Year 1 to create bird feeders to help look after the birds during the winter. The birds enjoyed their food very much and made some beautiful chirping music whilst visiting our bird feeders.
We had a fantastic time learning all about our Common Home and ways we should look after it. We learnt about all the different things God made and how everything is precious and unique. We create collages out of His Creation and made temporary art structures with Nature. We wrote a response to the Pope's call in Laudato Si making promises of what we will do to help take care of the planet.
Planting a Plenty!
We had a great time preparing all the flower beds for our Feast day planting sessions. We got very muddy and enjoyed working with our Year 6 buddies to do something to help the environment. We didn't even mind when it started to rain and took a lot of persuasion to go back inside!
We the Curious
WOW! We had our first trip to We the Curious and had such an amazing day! We learnt all about different habitats and were able to explore them using our senses. We loved the different smells, puppets and shells that we could touch and look at. We enjoyed the different exhibits, especially the wonky house and the Lego Build it area! We were a credit to the school and we can't wait to go on another adventure.
We have enjoyed a range of festive activities since our Nativity play performance. We had a special visit from Santa who brought some wonderful books for us to read, we created Christmas hats and had our Christmas dinner, we had Christmas jumper day and a party afternoon with the whole school! We are so excited and have really enjoyed ourselves.
We have been learning all about the Sacrament Baptism and how we become a part of God's family. We talked about what the priest would do in a Baptism and acted out some of the key concepts we could remember in our classroom. We could all remember to make a sign of the cross on the baby after putting water on its head.
That's Not Cricket!
We enjoyed a great 'cricket' session today! The children were able to learn some basic cricket skills through a fantastic alien world exploration trip! We ran from planet to planet swapping balls between and sometimes high fiving other aliens! We really enjoyed ourselves!
