Terrific Tool Use!

Children in Year 5 have been learning how to safely use hand saws to cut wood. Today, they worked outdoors in small groups and took it in turns to be the cutter, the wood holder, and the safety spotter, and they managed to saw circular slices of wood 'cookies'. When we have enough of these, we plan to use a special pyrography tool to burn numbers and letters into the wood 'cookies' for the Reception children to use in their learning. Have a look at their wonderful team work in the photographs below!

Potato Growing Challenge

The children in school have been busy planting potatoes as part of our whole school potato growing challenge. Each class has planted three chitted potatoes and we will all be digging them up in June. Each potato harvest will be weighed and the class with the heaviest harvest will be the winners! We hope to use all of the potatoes to make a delicious potato salad to serve as part of our school dinner. Good luck everyone!

Father Chris Visits Year 5H

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.

Writing Challenge

Our new writing challenge has been set today. To coincide with World Poetry Day on Tuesday 21st March, the challenge is to write a poem! The poem can be about whatever you like, but we'd like you to be creative with your language, and the poem's structure and form on the page.

It can be a rhyming poem, an acrostic poem, a haiku, or any other type of poem- it's up to you. Don't forget to use poetic techniques such as simles and metaphors.

Please bring in your poem by Wednesday 29th March, for those of you who would like to take part. Don’t forget Amazon Vouchers up for grabs for the best ones!
