Cafod - Catholic Social Teaching.
Today we were lucky enough to have an assembly followed by a workshop that reinforced our class learning on the Key values that we as Christians try to follow.
We looked at different scenarios and discussed each one, linking it to Catholic Social Teaching and finally we wrote prayers or a letter to Pope Francis.
Our Class assembly 09.11.23
In the main, this assembly was all the children's own work. They suggested all the ideas, even saying how they would like to present each piece of their learning.
We thank all of you who were able to attend and hope that you enjoyed it as much as the children enjoyed sharing it with you.
Trip to the Beaney.
We went to the Beaney Institute of Art and Knowledge on the 18th October to reinforce our work on adaptation, evolution and inheritance.
We visited the galleries and did some observational drawings where we identified the key adaptations on the animals we got to study close up.
Kent Catholic School's Partnership - Start of year Mass.
We had a lovely day today, celebrating the start of this academic year with many other Kent Catholic School's.
Our mass was followed by a picnic and some games in the park. After this we completed the beautiful rosary walk and visited the peace gardens. A truly uplifting way to start the school year.
As we walked around the rosary walk, it became very clear that many of our year sixes have forgotten a lot of this most beautiful of catholic prayers and so we have added it to this terms R.E. If anyone has any rosary beads at home, perhaps you could share them with your children and find out what they have been learning.
Below are some photo's of our day.
Welcome to year six!
This is a very busy but improtant year as we ready ourselves for secondary school.
There will be lots of hard work to do this year, but alongside it we will also be having a lot of fun.
