Active R.E: 1st March 2022

 This afternoon's R.E lesson involved us being active, having fun, collaborating in our pairs and learning outside our classroom! We went to the hall with the brief to answer this question: How do we know that Jesus is truly God and truly human? We had 8 Bible references that we needed to read to help us decide on the answer and why we thought that (what evidence did we have to reach that conclusion?) We had 2 rules: the Bible couldn't move and our books couldn't move! Here we are enjoying ourselves:

They were all super at helping tidy up and wash all of the equipment we had used too. Here are some pictures of us:

FOREST WEEK This Green Moon- 7th October

What a fabulous time we had at This Green Moon! We made some amazing volcanoes out of materials that we had foraged for in the the forest. Some even looked like they had ash clouds above them and actual explosions! We created a mini version of Pompeii and nearby town, Herculaneum, which were destroyed in the famous eruption of 79AD. 'Mount Vesuvius' even erupted! Check out our photos:

 

R.E- 6th October

This afternoon, we learnt that the Holy Spirit gives us special gifts to share and spread to others. We looked at the Fruits of the Spirit and the virtues and thought about how we display these in our lives and make our contribution to the Kingdom of God. We did a treasure hunt around our classrooms to find key characteristics of each of the Fruits of the Spirit. 

 

Science

 This half-term we are learning about The Circulatory System. We are learning about how the heart works, the main components of blood and the function of the different types of blood vessels. We are also learning  about how water is transported through the body and developing our understanding of the importance of water to human health.

Today, we made ‘blood soup’ as an illustrative practical activity to help us find out about how the different parts of blood enable it to carry oxygen, waste gases, nutrients and water. We then compiled a fact file. 

 

Mount St Mary's Taster morning - 29th September

 We had a great morning at Mount St Mary's High School where we took part in 3 different lessons as a taster of what they offer their students. Our fitness session in the gym made our hearts race when we had to complete 200m on the rowing machines for our team. Next, was Art and turning coffee splatters into monsters! Finally, was the library session in the former chapel.  What a fab school!

Herd Farm-  13th-15th September

 We had an amazing time at Herd Farm bonding with each other and trying new activities. We all pushed ourselves to our limits and feel very proud of our achievements.
