We had a great time visiting Blue Planet linked to our theme 'Blue Abyss'. We saw lots of different fish and even saw some feed!

We enjoyed working with acrylic paint to create these lovely canvasses of the life under the sea. We are very proud of them!

 

Year 4 meet the chicks!

We were lucky to have the chance to look at and hold the chicks that Year 5 looked after from their hatching in the incubator.

We even got to name one! We all put forward ideas and then voted for the one we liked the best. The one chosen was....'Katie'!

We had great fun on a mini beast hunt in Nursery. We found lots of  creatures living in different habitats.

 

We had a lovely day celebrating St Joseph's Day! First we had Mass and then a lovely treat of ice-cream!

Our RE theme is

Jesus the Saviour

In this topic we will learn that Jesus is truly God and, as man truly human and learn that Jesus came to share our life so that we can share his life. We will learn that when Jesus died on the cross he took away our sins, learn what happened in Holy week and learn what happened on Easter Sunday.

At home:

You could help your children by:

  • reading the stories of Jesus’ last week with them
  • visiting church during Holy Week

 

 

Interviewing Canon Phil

Canon Phil visited Year 4 to talk about life as a priest.  We asked lots of questions and enjoyed finding out about all the things a priest has to do!

Ask your child about the visit!

David C Miller.
