D-I-S-C-O! Halloween Special!
Everybody in KS1 had a fantastic disco tonight. They all looked fantastic in their outfits.
Well done Year 5 for competing in Year 5/6 Tag Rugby competition at Harton Academy. All the children showed great sportsmanship and showcased their rugby skills!
Children in Year 5 have been understanding the ‘Sacrament of Marriage’ by acting out a marriage ceremony. They discussed parts of the ceremony and gained a greater understanding what commitment means.
Well done to all the candidates in Year 5! Great use of persuasive language.
Today Y4 visited The Angel Of the North – to support learning about ‘Our Local Area’.
We learned lots of interesting facts. Did you know it is one of the most viewed sculptures in the world, with an estimate of 1 person per second?(33 million views per year)
We tried to measure the feet but they are so big. We took lots of photos and hope you enjoy looking at them.
Once back at school we made some collages of the Angel.
Aren’t they beautiful?
This afternoon we were joined by Newcastle University who had prepared a fun-filled afternoon focusing on the circulatory system. We completed ECG tests and used stethoscopes to monitor the beating of our hearts before and after exercise. We also got to take a closer look at a human heart and how it really works.
Today the children in Year 3 created a Litany of Saints as we were learning about the prayers in the Sacrament of Baptism. The children then worked in groups to research a saint and they shared their findings with the class. We had a lovely time learning about the different saints.
Children lead a liturgy all about ‘our home, the world’. Children shared what they were thankful to God for and let their worries float away in the water. A lovely liturgy attended by parents and friends of St Mary’s.
