Children in Year 5 held their liturgy with family and friends and highlighted the, ‘Freedom and Responsibility’ we are fortunate to have.
Today, Deacon Kevin and More Than Dance came to teach us two new liturgical dances. We spoke about the meanings behind each movement and were given the opportunity to reflect on our time at St. Mary’s. We will be performing one of these dances at St. James Church at our leavers mass.
This week we are looking at instructions. Today, we had to read and follow a set of instructions to make crispy cakes. We are looking forward to eating them this afternoon and writing our instructions.
The boys and girls planned our class liturgy today. They choose ‘Here I am Lord’ as our hymn. This linked really well with our reading ‘God’s Promise’.
Today we gathered for our worship planned by Kayla, Riley, Paige and Alex. We thought about the words of St. Paul and thought about the important parts for us. We are going to make sure we continue looking after our world and pick up litter. We enjoyed our reflective worship in class.
Today Year 3 went to Monkton Stadium to take part in a competition. The children were able to compete in teams. They really enjoyed taking part in the 400m run, 50m sprint, standing long jump and the howler throw. They all loved practising their different skills and had a great time. We will look forward to hearing the results.
For Child Safety Week, we have been learning First Aid and what to do in an emergency through ‘Life. Live it’ and the British Red Cross. We worked on spotting hazards and how this can help us to avoid danger and keep us safe. The children know how to deal with various first aid situations as well as how to put somebody in the recovery position.
This morning, Year 6 hosted a liturgy in their classroom, centred around the topic: Healing.
It was lovely to see so many friends family members in our classroom, especially since this was a very special class liturgy as it was our last at St. Mary’s.
We’ve had a great time here at Ford Castle. We’ve all pushed ourselves to try new and exciting challenges and are so proud of ourselves.
Yesterday we tried High All Aboard, Low Ropes and Fencing and today has been packed full of even more challenges including The Postman’s Walk, Crate Stacking and even learning survival skills to keep us safe.
Ashlyn has had a fantastic day celebrating her 10th birthday with her friends and we’re ending our day with a disco.
We hope you like our photographs and we’ll share lots more when we arrive back at school.
The Year 2 children have thoroughly enjoyed their time at Warkworth Castle. They explored the grounds, counted the steps and even had a game of hide and seek.
The children learned all about the different parts of the castle, how people lived and the food they ate. The children were given a story bag which enabled them to smell the different rooms within the castle.
Photos were taken of the castle so that the children can sketch it when they get back to school.
A great day at Warkworth Castle!
