Class Assembly

Year 6 planned and performed a very moving assembly this morning on the theme of discrimination. The children shared their work from a range of subjects including History, English, RE, Art, Dance and Music. They did a fantastic job and I was immensely proud of them all. Thank you to all those parents who came along to show their support.

Remembrance Day

As I am sure you have noticed, the whole school hung poppies onto the school gates on Monday 11th November to remember those soldiers who lost their lives during the First World War. Year 6 children worked in pairs and wrote some beautiful poems on their poppies. Please take the time to read these during drop off and pick up.

Religious Education

This half term in RE, we have been learning about the vocation of a priest. In particular, we have been studying the sacrament of ordination - the service in which a decon, after many years of training, finally becomes a priest. We have been looking closely at the vows priests, and members of other holy orders, have to make in order to fulfil their vocation. Yesterday, Father Michael kindly came in to talk about his training and subsequent ordination. The children then asked him some deeply thoughtful and reflective questions.

Science week

We finished off science week in school with a 'pop up' planetarium in school on Friday 25th October. It was an extremely immersive and educational experience, with the children learning lots about the origins of the different constellations. I was so impressed with how well the children listened and the fantastic questions they asked throughout the session.
