In Year 3 we have been learning about Lent and how it is a time of preparation fro Easter. The children have spent time today thinking about how they can pray, fast or give alms. The children set up the altar and they wrote their Lenten promise.
Those children who received a Special Mention last week were also given an extra award of hot chocolate and cakes on Friday. The children were ecstatic to have the opportunity to put marshmallows and sprinkles on their drinks.
Thanks for the memories, Mr Barker.
In Geography today we used plasticine models to help us understand the different layers of the earth. We talked with our partners about the crust, mantle, outer layer and inner layer. This led to conversations about creation and who made the earth.
Today, our fabulous GIFT Team lead a Scriptural Rosary for our children and their families, as part of their Lenten preparation. We recited the "Crowning with Thorns "Mystery.
We will be here next Friday at 8.30am. Please come along if you can. If not, then send us an intention and we will pray for you.
Year 2 and Reception gathered for our class worship today. We looked at how Jesus showed his love for us when he died on the cross. Children from Year 2 worked with children from Reception to find reasons why Jesus loves us.
The children learned about their core muscles and did a tricky exercise to help strengthen these important muscles.
Freddie explained how the muscles worked and why it was difficult. He had the help of a volunteer.
The children also learned the importance of cooling down after exercise!
As a reward for excellent behaviour, the two classes joined together for a fun exercise time, courtesy of Freddie Fit! They had to listen carefully to instructions about safety and how to do the exercises. They also discussed which muscles they used in each exercise so it was very informative. Well done Year 3 and 4 for listening so...
