Things are starting to feel very festive! Year 5 had a lovely day out on Wednesday to Westminster Cathedral, where they watched the Christmas story being acted out with a live choir and even a real donkey and goat! The children behaved and sung beautifully, and were wonderful with the Year 3s.
We have been praying the Jesse Tree each day in order to prepare ourselves for Christmas this Advent. We have enjoyed hearing the stories about Jesus’ ancestors and writing reflections about how we can put into action what we learn from each story.
We welcomed Bishop John into our school yesterday, and we were interested to find out about his role as a bishop. He likened it to him being a shepherd that leads his flock, and showed us his crook and mitre.
Today in Science, we investigated air resistance and how the surface area of a piece of paper affects how quickly it falls. We’re looking forward to our trip to the Science Museum on Thursday when we’ll be able to immerse ourselves in our forces learning!
