Children in Year 4 were busy using their talents this week.
They spent time looking at secondary sources and evaluated them for reliability to judge Henry VIII’s character and ruling style as part of our Tudor topic. They then used Hans Holbein’s famous painting to create pencil portraits of the prominent king.
On Tuesday, the children participated in watching Mass online celebrating the feast day of St Peter and St Paul and learning about these two wonderful saints from Fr Shaun in his homily. Later during the week, after doing some research on Simon Peter’s life, they have written CVs acting as Peter, applying for the position of first Pope.
On Wednesday, they have further developed both their bawling and their batting and fielding skills throughout ‘Monster Cricket’, an exciting game taught to us by Coach Tom. Well done team!
On Thursday, we had the pleasure of participating in our next Djembe lesson with Caz, where the class worked in pairs to compose their own call and response patterns as part of a competition. Congratulations to Ela-Maria and Caroline, whose winning composition will officially become part of our performance piece!
Today, lead by Mrs McNamara, the children did some cooking and continued on developing and fine-tuning their Scratch programming skills. They also spent time preparing for Sports Day doing running races and free standing jumps.
Wishing you all a lovely weekend,
Ms Varga and Mrs McNamara
