Islam Research with Year 3
Year 5 have worked really hard on devising their own power point programme on the subject of Islam to present to Year 3 children. This morning we teamed them all up and spent time discussing what went well and how much the younger children have learned from the experience.
THANK YOU MRS WHEELHOUSE
We have been so lucky this term having Mrs Wheelhouse teaching us about growing up. The Lovewise programme has helped us to understand all the changes that we will be going through as teenagers and how special it is to have children!
Our view of The Crucifixion.
This week Year 5 have been discussing the events of the death and resurrection of Jesus. Using the picture by John Reilly we were inspired to compose our own version of the death of Jesus on the cross. A reflection of death and life in the same image. Quite a challenge! Here are a few examples (we will be displaying more in school in the near future).
YEAR 5 TASTER DAY April 27th
We all enjoyed an active day at Birkdale High School and Grennbank High School.
The girls learnt about the Second World War; in food technology they made cookies; in science they investigated heating chemicals and their reactions; in P E they played team games. They also had a wonderful break time rolling down hills!
Our boys had a great day at Birkdale High School where they learned how to separate salt from rock salt using crushing, filtration and evaporation; the afternoon was spent solving mathematical problems with pupils from Year 7.
All pupils were made to feel very welcome and they were beautifully behaved from start to finish - but then we wouldn't expect anything different!
OUR SPECIAL VISITOR
We were delighted to welcome Mr John Pugh into class this morning. As our local MP he answered lots of really challenging questions from our Year 5 pupils and we had a lively discussion about democracy and the value of spelling tests!
We had great fun bouncing for a minute non stop on Friday March 18th all for a good cause; Sports Relief.
Well done to Sam who jumped the most, 186!
Thank you to those in Year 5 who managed to get to church last Sunday. It was wonderful to share our news about Africa and our friends from Rwanda.
IT WAS GREAT TO HEAR ALL THE FAVOURITE CHOICES FROM YEAR 5. SO MANY GREAT STORIES AND AUTHORS.
I HOPE WE MANAGED TO INSPIRE OTHERS TO READ OUR BEST BOOK. CARRY ON READING, FOLKS!
Thank you to our friend, Dominic, who came to see us this week after his visit to Rwanda. He shared his exciting news about the friends he met and the work he carried out. We sent personal notes about us to deliver to the village school he visited. Guess what? We all had a personal reply! Now we have made new friends in Africa and have already started writing our replies.
We really appreciate the work Dominic has done in building these new bridges across the continents! We thank you and ask for God's continued blessing in the great work you do for others.
A BIG THANK YOU!
For all the many cards, chocs and gifts over Christmas. You were very kind and now I have some serious weight to shed.
We had a wonderful day on December 17th. We went to the Panto in the morning to see Aladdin at the Southport Theatre which was brilliant. When we got back we had the most amazing party. Our thanks to the welfare staff who set up everything for us.
We wish you all A Very Merry Christmas!
Our thanks to Chris from Childline who spent time with Year 6 and 5 pupils explaining how to stay safe and free from harm. The children listened really carefully and asked intelligent questions.
Rev Richard came to visit us this week to speak about Jesus as teacher. Now we know that Jesus used Authority, Parables, Arguments and that the most important lessons were taught during the Sermon on the Mount. Thank you for your inspiration Rev Richard.
Well done to all our bikers this week who took part in the first stage of their training. The trainers were very impressed with the skills used and the good listening taking place. Last session next week, Nov 26th.
CHILDREN IN NEED
We all came to school in our pj's to support the school council's Children in need event. Thank you all for your generous contributions.
QUARRY BANK MILL VISIT.
Thank you to Rev Kent and Mrs Kay for coming along to help us out on our school trip to Quarry Bank Mill. We had a wonderful day. The children went to so much trouble over their Victorian outfits.
OUR HARVEST CROSS
In year 5 we chose to study the cross of the Taize Community in France. This is an ecumenical place of worship for a group of twenty monks that live in a small village in central France. They welcome young people of every faith and nationality to join them in prayer, worship and fellowship. I hope you like our images of their famous cross.
