In RE this half term our theme is 'Eucharist'.

Year 3 will know why Sunday is special for Christians and that we come to Mass to hear the teaching of Jesus and pray to him. They will learn that in the Mass we offer thanks to God the Father for the gift of his Son and learn that during Mass the bread and wine become the body and blood of Jesus.

They will learn that when we receive Holy Communion we receive Jesus and learn that Jesus is present in the Blessed Sacrament in the tabernacle. They will also learn some of the responses in the Mass and understand that Jesus died on the cross, and rose from the dead.

We had a fantastic time on our trip to Blackpool Zoo!

This term our topic has been on predators.

Our trip to Blackpool Zoo gave us the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the most fascinating animals from around the world!

This helped our understanding of both prey and predators.

We have been working hard in French!

Très bien!

Year 3 worked with visiting artist Mrs Wood to recreate a work of art originally painted by L.S. Lowry.

We had a great time and learnt lots of new skills in the process!

 

Year 5 have successfully cared for 9 chicks that hatched in the incubator. We were lucky enough to spend some time with them and even got to name one! We shared our ideas and then voted for......'Cutie-Pie'!

We really enjoyed looking at and holding the chicks!

What a fantastic time we had when the chocolate workshop came into visit!

We learnt lots of new things and even created our own chocolate pizzas in the afternoon.
