Our last week (before the holidays) in Year 4 has been another busy one.
The children have spent time this week learning about Jesus’ Passion according to Mark’s Gospel and finding out more about Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. Yesterday, the class watched online the very reflective Stations of the Cross service lead by Year 5 and 6 from Our Lady and St Vincent’s Church. This has been recorded and will be available from OLSV website.
In D&T the children continued with their project, applying a second layer of paper-mache followed by additional details such as wings, beaks, paws, etc to personalise their bedside lamp structures. Some excellent designs coming along!
During the week, the children participated in several Lenten Charity events organised by the Year 6 house captains. On Wednesday, they completed a Lenten word hunt on the field whilst on Thursday, they took part in an obstacle course. They also took part in a Fairtrade chocolate and banana morning on Wednesday.
In PE the children have worked on General fitness and Team-building over these last few weeks and they have really enjoyed completing their daily Golden Mile.
Today, the class used twigs, stones, berries and other ‘treasures’ found on the school grounds to decorate their Lenten Pots which will bloom later just in time for Easter.
We wish all of you and your families a safe, healthy and blessed Easter!
Ms Varga and Mrs McNamara
