The children in Year 5 have been busy making bouncy balls today to complete their challenge for our whole school science week. They worked in small groups to create the best recipe for a homemade bouncy ball, using different quantities of ingredients such as liquid latex, bicarbonate of soda, vinegar and food colouring and they came up with their own method to make them. We then tested the bouncy balls together in the classroom and outside by dropping them from the same height and voted on the one which had the best bounce, accuracy, and appearance.
We have had an exciting and emotional day in year 5KH. Mr Frith has spent his last day as our amazing teaching assistant, and it was our class assembly! After a morning of practising for our assembly, we were first visited by Miss Iqbal, and then Miss Freeman surprised us with a visit! The children performed so beautifully in the afternoon as they began our Holy Week liturgies by reminding us of what happened on Palm Sunday. Thank you to Miss Iqbal and Miss Freeman for visiting us. But most importantly, we thank Mr Frith for all of his support and dedication to us this year. We'll miss him very much!
Father Chris visited Year 5 KH today to talk to the children about how Jesus was tempted in the desert. The children asked many questions about being tempted and how to resist temptation. They also talked about their Lenten promises and asked Father Chris about his. He told us that we have to have strong reasons behind our Lenten promises in order to be committed and to be able to resist temptation. Although, he did tell us that we all give in sometimes and that's okay, as long as we say sorry to God and try again.
