To work, to pray, to play in the Light of the Lord
WEEKLY PLAN- 25/01/21
History- The Mayans
In the times of Ancient Maya, Central America was split up into territories. Each territory was made up of city states. These city states were independent and consisted of a city and the farmland and villages around it.
Today, we took on the role of leaders of city states. We received this very important message...
Welcome my lord. The city mourns the death of your father, the king. He is ascending the branches of the world tree as we speak.
You have instructed that a grand tomb be constructed for him. I am your chief architect and I will help you build this monument to your god-father. The gods will be pleased with your efforts and the endeavor will be blessed by them.
It will be a great undertaking and require a huge amount of organisation. We will also need to greatly increase the size of our town to supply the labour force and resources that will be required.
We had great fun getting our cities up and running and then trading and raiding each other! 10.11.20
This Green Moon
At Holy Family, we love This Green Moon and this afternoon certainly didn't disappoint. Despite the rain, we had an absolutely amazing time building volcanoes out of clay, using natural materials to create the city of Pompeii and of course toasting marshmallows!
Sports Day (12.10.20)
Today, we competed in our house teams to celebrate a belated Sports Day. We all took part in many events, such as: running races, jumping, skipping, obstacle course and lots of different games. We worked really hard and thoroughly enjoyed the morning! We would like to say a big thank-you to Miss Clayton for organising it!
The results for our class are:
1st Place: St Aidan
2nd Place: St Hilda
Joint 3rd Place: St Cuthbert and St Bede
We are excited to see how the rest of the school do later on in the week.
Visit to Mount St Marys
It's that time of year when we have to make the big decision of which high school we will be going to next year. We were very lucky as we were able to spend a whole afternoon at MSM to experience some of the things they have to offer. We tried lots of different subjects including: science, art, PE, performing arts and programming. We really enjoyed our afternoon so hopefully we will be able to visit again soon!
This half-term, we are learning about the circulatory system and how it enables us to function. We have already began to find out about the main parts of the circulatory system (heart, blood vessels and blood) and how these work together to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the rest of the body. Today, we used play dough to try and explain our understanding so far.
Geography (wc 14.09.20)
This half-term, we are learning all about natural disasters (especially volcanoes and earthquakes). So far, we have learned about the structure of the earth and how this structure leads to the formation of volcanoes. We have also learned about how volcanoes erupt and the devastation this can cause. We are excited to continue to learn about these mighty beasts!
