Today the children led the Friday assembly well – they spoke with confidence, played their guitars like professionals and showed their understanding of the rosary for the rest of the school to learn about. A special well done to the singers Gabriela, Elle, Violet, Ela-Maria and Caroline who created their own verses for our Rosary song which they sang today. Well done!
Also in assembly the children received their badges for their leadership roles. They were really proud to receive these. Just encourage your child to make sure that they are removed from their uniform at laundry time!!
This week in English the children have explored the animation ‘The Piano’. They considered the symbolism in the short clip and wrote descriptions of the old man.
In Maths, our work on multiplying numbers up to 3 decimal places by 10/100/1000 has continued and the children have been given plenty of problem solving tasks to apply their understanding to contextual questions. In RE we have been studying the Bible further and learning about St Vincent de Paul as it was his feast day on Tuesday, making links to the bible to describe how the values of St Vincent of compassion, humility and generosity are encouraged and shown in the Bible.
Congratulations to Finn and Charlie, St Vincent’s House Captains, who led the whole school assembly on Tuesday using a very informative power point and finishing with a quiz which the children enjoyed. In the afternoon, the members of St Vincent’s House had an extra playtime alongside a treat that had been provided for by Finn and Charlie.
On Wednesday morning a large group of Year 6 boys took part in a football tournament at Wroxham Primary School and are now through to the quarter finals! The boys returned to school happy with their result!
Kian and Vihaan shared the teams result at assembly today. Albion was given Man of the Match.
The Class met their reading buddies this afternoon and as promised here are some photos from last week. Do also look at the reception blog to see the photos taken also.
Have a good weekend.
