What a busy week for our school! Year 1 participated in Mardi Gras, Ash Wednesday and World Book Day all in one week!
Mrs Moccia said the children really enjoyed learning to spell numbers to twenty in words this week. I heard some French numbers were also learnt!
Mrs Heymoz continued Year 1’s R.E. unit ‘From Lent to Easter’ and taught the children The Stations of the Cross. The children learnt about each important station that led up to Jesus’ crucifixion and challenged themselves to put them in the correct order.
The children began their Lenten journey this week on Tuesday with Mardi Gras celebrations. I heard the pancake race was especially exciting! Year 1 learnt about almsgiving, prayer and fasting during Lent and thought hard about what their personal Lenten promises will be. They wrote them on palm leaves before presenting them at Friday’s assembly. I heard they were very respectful during their Ash Wednesday service and sang beautifully.
I hope you have a restful weekend and hope to see you all on Monday,
