Year 6 Celebration of the Word- St. John the Baptist
Today we gathered together to reflect upon the life of St. John the Baptist. We listened to the gospel which told us all about how John, who heard God's call and followed. The children in year 6 said prayers which asked for encouragement and inspiration to do the same.
Year 6 Homework Club
Our very successful and popular homework club has now began in year 6. The level of concentration from the children even after school has been amazing, what a great start to get ourselves ready for the upcoming SAT's
Year 6 Number Day NSPCC
Year 6 are putting their faith into action by raising money for the NSPCC in school. All children in school will be asked to dress up as a number or wear a number. Over the course of the special day, they will have special maths lessons and engage in lots of times table games.
The year six children helped the school raise a total of £125.34. Well done for putting your faith into action!
RE- Ligturical Dance
The children in year 6 worked together to develop a liturgical dance showing that Jesus brings together many different people with different gifts. The year six children focused on the lyrics of the song to understand its meaning then thought of movements to explain them. They really enjoyed this experience as they were able to reflect upon how to achieve togetherness and being as one.
Class Celebration of the Word-6/2/24
Today we celebrated the life of Carlos Actis who is an example for all young people today. He was an ordinary child who truly believed in the importance of receiving the eucharist. He believed that if people knew that Jesus was truly in the eucharist they would turn to God. The children listen to the Gospel of Mark 22-26 and respond to it by performing a mantra and reflecting on how we can please God, just as Carlos did. We ended our celebration by singing A New Commandment.
Father Keith visit our year six class today. We always really enjoy his visits the children especially love his words of wisdom and his wonderful sense of humour.
Science Expriment - Microbes
Year 6 have been investigating microorganisms, we used glitter paricles to represent them and carried out an investigation to decide which type of soap would most effectively remove it from our hands. Firstly the children predicted which soap they believe would be most effective then thought about the factors they could change and measure. After washing hands the children had to then count the particles left on their hands and wrote the results in a table. What an interesting experiment to carry out!
We performed a section of Mcbeth; the 3 witches. The children performed using lour clear voices and they tried very hard to speak it in Tudor English. The mime added to the performance and they acted out throwing the ingredients into the cauldron. Fanastics acting Year 6!
