Friday 5th June

 

This week on Monday, we had our 'Operation Orphan' Assembly (led by the Chaplaincy Team and The Eco-Club).  Please try to bring in any unwanted coats and warm items of clothing (scarves, hats and gloves) ready for next Wednesday's collection.  On Wednesday afternoon Years 5 and 6 had a Childline Assembly.  Childline representatives will be in school next Monday  afternoon to run workshops with Years 5 and 6. 

 

Also this week you have written some lovely letters in Literacy to new penpals in Ethiopia.  I'm sure they'll be so pleased to hear from you and hopefully we'll get some responses before you break up for the summer holidays.

 

In Science, we started our new topic on Electricity.  We planned investigations into electrical conductors and electrical insulators.  Next week we'll look at circuit diagrams and learn how to draw components, using the correct symbols.

Friday 22nd May

 

Well done everyone - you have all managed to make it through the final week of this half term, exhausted after your weekend at the Briars.  It was a really fantastic weekend.  On Friday, we spent the day by the canal taking part in wall climbing, canoeing and bush craft - scroll down to see some wonderful photographs of you all.  

We celebrated a lovely Mass today in Church for the feast of Pentecost, so we had no celebration assembly.

 

We have started our new RE topic called 'Common Good' and started to think about what the words fair/unfair and just/unjust mean and looked at how resources are unfairly distributed around the world.  Ten of you worked hard with Mr Dosh today to plan a KS2 collective Act of Worship on this theme. 

 

Yesterday everyone took part in the non-uniform day and sponsored walk/run in aid of the CAFOD appeal for the people who are trying to rebuild their lives in Nepal, after the devastating earthquakes.  Well done for getting all of the sponsors - you have helped the chaplaincy team to raise a lot of money, which will make a real difference to the lives of the people affected in Nepal.

 

Have a wonderful weekend off.

Don't forget to read and fill in your journals, ready for next week.
