We all enjoyed the Virtual Velodrome with Paula today. Everyone completed a lap around the track. Our fastest cyclists were Zac, Mae and Ben. Prizes to follow. Well done to everyone!
We have all enjoyed celebrating National Poetry Day today. We started with a poetry slam – reading favourite poems aloud and rating them out of 4. Everyone enjoyed reading poetry to the children from the reception class. Finally, we read a poem called ‘Liar.’ We looked at some BBC headlines to decide whether they were real or fake news. Then we used these headlines as a starting point for some class poems.
Yesterday Sophia and Angela led us in a fanatic collective worship all about sharing.
They showed us a lovely version of the story of Jesus feeding the 500 with loaves and fishes in which the boy with the food chose to share.
We pray for all those who do not have enough to eat.
We pray that we will be able to share more willingly.
We enjoyed our walk around Millhouses this morning. We followed the map and spotted changes such as Mercia School and the new housing next to the school. We asked some local people how they felt about the changes and the impact it has had on their lives. Some children used the ipads to take photographs. We will be using this information to create a report on change in our area.
On Wednesday afternoon, we talked about what is meant by unconditional love. The children then wrote down the ways people would behave towards someone they loved. Next they had to decide which were the nine most important qualities and then rank them from 1 to 9. There were some very interesting discussions!
