On Monday, we had the privilege of being responsible for the burning of the palms for the Ash Wednesday celebrations at the church and the school. We learnt from Deacon Axcel that the ashes symbolise us being mortal sinners, made from dust, but who will be forgiven though the Resurrection. Thank you to Deacon Axcel for leading the burning ceremony.
On Tuesday, the children finished their PE dance unit in which we focused on the Charleston. Have a look at the videos below to see each group’s final dance!
In English, we began the whole-school text ‘The Tin Forest’. So far, we have looked at the setting description, inferred meaning from the illustrations, and analysed the development of the main character’s emotions. We also started making parts of the tin forest which will emerge within the school next week!
In math, we were looking at 2D shapes, focusing particularly on geometry-related vocabulary. We also had a pancake-themed lesson on Tuesday, in which the children had to investigate from where they should buy their pancake ingredients, using costings from 4 supermarkets and calculating percentage discounts.
