Year 1 have been learning about Sukkot. They have been thinking about how the Jews were held as slaves long ago and they’ve been building Sukkahs just as many Jewish people still do today.
Reception class have enjoyed balancing and climbing on the trim trail today. They showed our Christian value of courage and found their brave during our P.E lesson. Well done!
Tonight our school football team took part in their DPSSA football league matches against St Peters and St James Lower Darwen. The team was in outstanding form from the very first whistle with precise interplay and extremely high pressing from the off. This ultimately led to us taking victory 3-1. In the second game, we played St James Lower Darwen. The children put in an astonishing performance running out resounding winners by twelve goals to one. A special mention has to go to the team’s sportsmanship. It would be easy for us to act overconfident in this situation but we didn’t. We showed fantastic sportsmanship and encouragement, even St Barnabas himself would be proud of. Well done to each and every one of them on another set of fantastic performances.
This evening we have taken part in some wonderful Art CPD at DACA. We have looked at mono printing , reverse mono printing, poly print and Lino print. What a fantastic opportunity for us as staff! We can’t wait to try it all out in our classrooms.
Reception have been practising reading and writing words. We have been blown away by how well they are all doing.
This week, Reception have been finding out all about Autumn. They have learnt all about what happens in Autumn and have learnt some new vocabulary too: deciduous and evergreen. Super learning!
We would like to introduce you to our new ‘Wellbeing Warriors’ from Year 4. The Wellbeing Warriors will help to support PSHE ( Personal Social Health Education ) in school by promoting events such as Hello Yellow Day for mental health and Anti-Bullying Week with Odd Socks day which is coming up very soon. They will also meet weekly to discuss how we can improve our PSHE lessons, take part in pupil interviews and monitor scrapbooks. They can’t wait to start their new roles and we look forward to having them.
This afternoon in Year 4 we have been looking at what the Human Geography is. We have identified that human geography explores the people, communities and cultures of the world. We have used the chrome books to complete research on the human geography of South America.
Year 3 have been developing their passing skills in a game situation today in PE on our new Astroturf MUGA. Well done Year 3!
Year 5 have had a lot of fun in science today. We have learnt that when you mix bicarbonate soda and vinegar a new chemical called carbonic acid is made. This acid immediately decomposes into carbon dioxide.
Year 4 have had great fun using QR codes in their RE research this week. They have been finding out about people who stand up to authority to protect our world and the people in it.
