Science Week, Hazard Alley and Lenten Fundraising Fun

What a fortnight! We seem to have been juggling so many different things over the last couple of weeks and the children have been both enthusiastic and impeccably behaved. 

Last week was Science, Maths and Engineering week and we were kept busy with visits and workshops run by some of our lovely parents. On Friday, we went to Hazard Alley and the children spent the day discovering numerous ways to keep safe. Hopefully they have shared all their expertise with you.

This week we had a visit from Mrs Zilliox and the classroom had more volcanic eruptions than the San Andreas Fault when we learnt how to make a chemical reaction with bicarbonate of soda and acetic acid.

Today the children worked hard running their stalls for the Catholic Children's Society fundraiser. All stalls were a great success so thank you for your support and contributions.

In our learning we are making good progress with our leaflets persuading people to visit a selected place of interest, have been applying our understanding of decimals to money and doing some problem solving. In RE we have been thinking about Lent and Easter and in DT we completed our buzz wire games ready for today.

Next week is our Be Spirited week and so we will spend time reflecting and praying. In addition, this year each class will be making a prayer book which can be used at whole school assemblies and gatherings. Our liturgical season is Lent and we will write prayers on Fasting, Prayer, Acts of Charity/Generosity and on the virtue of Charity and Humility.

Enjoy your weekend.
