This week we have really enjoyed thinking about the Eucharist in RE. We had a visit from a special team called Children of The Eucharist along with Father Declan who taught us about the many ways in which God loves us. After the visit we went to church for an Adoration where we prayed to God and tried to see him through the eyes of our heart. We sang songs and said special prayers. We felt very special afterwards and felt much closer to God. We were very thankful to our visitors.
Year four children made fabulous progress in swimming this week. They have all been very sensible and listening well to their teachers. I am very proud of their efforts.
We also had our second dance lesson this week which was taught by a special dance teacher where we moved our bodies to different sounds and songs! We thoroughly enjoyed dancing to the pop songs and had a sing song too!
Book Bonanza week has been fantastic! We have enjoyed sharing our favourite books, taking part in competitions, celebrating at the Mad Hatter's Tea Party and dressing up as our favourite book characters. We all looked amazing and had lots of fun. We love to read in class 3!
We spent time reading our class book 'The Escape from Pompeii' and through drama acted out the escape scene as Roman Characters. This helped us to write detailed direct speech in Literacy for our stories.
In Science we examined the results of our experiment from last week and identified how fossils were formed through careful observations and scientific questioning.
In Maths we have been looking at measuring length. We have been measuring objects around school in millimeters, centimeters and meters. We have been learning to convert between the measures. We need to remember there are 10mm in 1 cm, and 100cm in 1m and 1000m in 1km.
Class 3 have had an amazing first week back! They have all settled down really well and are trying hard to set a good example of behaviour to others.
In Science we found out about Fossils, that last of our work from our Predator topic. We carried out an investigation to see how fossils are formed. We put jelly sweets to represent dead animals in layers of bread which represented the sedimentary rock. We will return next week to observe and answer our questions about fossils.
We all looked fabulous in our red, white and blue outfits today to celebrate British Values. In class we learnt about how to be a good citizen and about the fundamental British Values. We also continued our topic 'What does it mean to represent others?'. We discussed our recent visit from our local MP Mr Healey and combined this with ICT skills by typing up what we learnt about his role.
