'I disappeared on the night before my twelfth birthday...'
This term we will be studying the fascinating tail of 'Kensuke's Kingdom' by Michael Morpurgo. Using Michael's experiences to write character descriptions and explore the roller-coaster ride that was his childhood. When he was washed up on a desert island, with only his dog for company, Michael's future looked desperate and hopeless. However, after curling up to sleep, he awakes to a plate of food beside him. He is not alone...
We had the opportunity to learn a new skills this week from experts in their field. Indo-Boarding is a sport which involves balance, focus and determination. Top instructors guided us through body positions and a variety of skills to help us maintain our balance on top of the Indo-boards. At first we thought it would be easy although we soon discovered that it was harder than we originally thought. We used muscles that we didn't even know we had just to stay on board! Most importantly, it taught us a lesson in trust and working with people who we would not normally choose to work with.
Our Lady of Lourdes turned into a 'School of Rock (Music)' this term. Our class spent the week doing all things musical...even maths! We loved the opportunity to see how a subject like music could affect all areas of our curriculum and it was a joy to let our creative juices flow. We painted music, studied Picasso, solved maths problems with notation, created drama to classical music, showed off our talented musicians, learnt some ceilidh dances and finished off by creating our own junk orchestra!
Cleaning up Kingswood
After making our school famous in the local newspaper for pro-actively clearing up the litter from Kingswood Park last year, we have upheld our promise and have been out in force once more. We are extremely passionate about looking after our environment and local community and love having the opportunity to give back.
