Year 6 – 07/12/18

We have entered into Advent thinking deeply about what it is we are preparing for and how we can better ourselves for the Lord’s coming. A couple of weeks ago, the children worked in groups to prepare Acts of Worship to align with the Advent Gospel readings, and this week we had our first two groups leading us in prayer. Well done for allowing us to reflect on how we can prepare ourselves for Christmas.

On Tuesday, the children practised their recent learning on addition and subtraction of fractions by playing a competitive card game.

The Healthy Living Team are still leading their fruit competition and this week it was Year 3’s turn to fill the hamper. Well done to the team for your efforts in promoting this.

Well done for your efforts in rehearsing for the Advent service so far. Please continue to practise your lines and the songs (see last week’s blog post) to make Tuesday night a special and memorable occasion.
