Year 4 had another busy week!

On Tuesday, Miss Pringle helped them learn about the fantastic game of hockey! The children practiced different ways of holding their sticks and they also dribbled their hockey balls, ‘hoovering’ on the playground. They then consolidated these skills on Thursday and moved onto two new games where they could become goalkeepers. They did very well!

On Wednesday, the children had karate with Michael where they learnt new movements and techniques of meditation. Another chance for the children to be active came during our English lesson, where they acted out some of the characteristics that some of the main characters displayed in the play such as confidence, shyness, anger, etc  The children finished their second narrative piece this week with such imagination and showed that within their story their writing is progressively building a varied and rich vocabulary with an increasing range of sentence structures! Well done to Ben and Nathalie for receiving Head Teacher Awards for their pieces.

The children later brought balance to our week by participating in a serene and respectful Lectio Divina prayer session on Wednesday where they meditated and prayed on a piece of scripture from Luke’s Gospel.

We hope you have a lovely weekend,

Ms Varga and Mrs McNamara
