In RE, this term we have been looking at the Easter story and the period of Lent leading up to Jesus's death. We worked in groups to see whether we could locate examples of our Christian values within the story and then thought about how we could use this to better live our own lives. We then designed and created our own stain glass windows to remind visitors about Jesus's great sacrifice.
Save the Planet
As a school, we enjoyed a day devoted to better understanding of how we can take care of ourselves as well as the planet and community that we live within. In class we discussed the importance of protecting the world and looked at ways in which we might encourage others to do this. We were shocked to discover just how many species of animal were becoming extinct each year due to waste plastic which is polluting our oceans. We discussed and suggested some ways in which we could limit our damage to the environment and then created persuasive posters to help spread our message around school. We then designed and decorated some recycled plastic bottles to grow some classroom plants and decided to go litter picking around school. We presented our findings to the parents during our church assembly and we felt better knowing that we were doing our part.
This week, the Year 6 were put through their paces during the SATS tests and we cannot be prouder of their achievements. They all handled the week with maturity and confident and regardless of what the results say in July, did a fantastic job. Here they are celebrating after their final exam on the Thursday.
This term we have been heading out onto the backfield and taking part in a variety of team-building activities, which have helped us to develop our communication skills, resilience and our ability to solve problems. We have particularly enjoyed orienteering in teams and getting slightly tangled up in knots...
