The third week of term already – the weeks are whizzing by and we haven’t had a full five day week yet!
In mathematics, we have been using base 10 to practise dividing 2- and 3-digit numbers by two. The children enjoyed working with the base 10 apparatus and really understood what they were doing.
Our English this week concentrated on reading, speaking and listening. Children have worked on reading comprehension but our main emphasis has been on speaking and listening as they worked in groups to create the role plays that they performed in today’s May procession. Having gathered information about St Bernadette’s life, they then took one part and turned it into a little scene. Within each group, they chose who would play each part, what they would say and how they would say it. They then edited and tweaked it until they were happy with it.
RE has been combined with English this week to practise our class assembly and May procession. I cannot emphasise enough how proud Mrs Cina and I are of the children this week. They worked so hard on practising the narrator parts as well as on their acting. Their teamwork when preparing the role plays was superb; we needed to give them very little help with the words as they knew exactly how they wanted to get the point across. It all came together to become a really lovely assembly and May procession; even the weather was on our side this morning, which it certainly hadn’t been all week when we needed to get outside and practise in what was a very short week! Thank you to all the parents, grandparents and other relatives who came to participate this morning – such a wonderful turnout certainly made it even more special for all the children. There are some photographs below, thanks to Miss Entwistle. To see more pictures, please turn to the post on the homepage.
Finally, please keep the following children in your prayers as they receive their First Holy Communion this weekend: Alex C, Alex P, Ben, Cardmel, Christian, Ella, Jerron, Leon, Melisa, Mia, Niamh, Orla, Rico, Sean, Tanatswa and Tia.
