The children have created a rainbow of hands to remind us of the colours that represent the different continents of the world. In Nursery, the children were praying for Asia as part of our day for Mission Rosary. We looked at Asia on Google Maps and said our prayer in our heads.
In Year 3 today we were looking for patterns and trying to use our mathematical vocabulary to explain reasons for answers when we added 2 digit numbers that were diagonally opposite each other on a 100 grid. The problem was from the Nrich website. We started off with a small grid of numbers that were close to each other...
Today was the first time our school joined in this day and we focused on the idea of "Children praying for Children" from the Mission Together charity.

Today we have wrote instructions for how to plant sunflower seeds. We began by reminding ourselves what we must do to write a clear set of instructions.

To help us with our grid reference work we played a game of Finding the objects. We had to take it in turns to pick up a grid reference , find it and uncover a card to see if there was an object beneath it. The winner was the player to uncover the most objects.
Yesterday,Monday 26th June, our girls cricket team competed in the Tameside round of the Lancashire Cricket Heats. As a rescheduled event, only the keenest cricketers attended.
Our first game was against Russell Scott, who are fierce competitors and who pipped us to the post last year by 2 runs! That didn't happen this year and we scored a resounding victory.

Today the class went to King George V Playing Fields to look at the beehives as they will be writing a story about a bee that can't stop sneezing!
We spent time looking at the shape of the hives, how many there were, where they were in relation to the park to help us with writing the setting for our...
Last week in Religion we studied the unit on "The Dignity of Work"
Today Miss McIntyre , with the help of some children, asked and answered such questions as
What is work?
Are some jobs more important than others?
The classes then took turns to share what aspect of work they had studied.
Here are some photos from the assembly.
Year 1 were lucky enough to have a scientist visit from the University of Manchester! The children had the chance to make circuits to light up light bulbs! We even sent a current through our own drawing! The scientist commented on how wonderfully the children behaved and that they asked some higher level questions!
Our KS1 football team had a fantastic time at the KS1 Catholic football tournament. We played well as a team and had a fantastic attitude! Well done!
