Throughout Advent our pupils and staff have worked hard to remember the true meaning of Christmas; the celebration of the coming of Jesus Christ. Many events and celebrations have been enjoyed by all and they culminated with a musical performance evening which was attended by many parents. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support at this time and we wish you a happy and Holy Christmas this year. The video below features Mrs Harney’s Year 5/6 class performing Victorian themed Christmas songs.
In class J we have been looking at the meaning of ‘advent’ and what it means to us. As a result we drew images of advent to represent these thoughts. Some of us sketched religious and well-known symbols of advent like the wreath or candles, others sketched symbols of kindness (out-reached hand, smiles, sweets for sharing…) and others drew symbols of ‘attitudes’ that they want to display during advent. Some children sketched ‘wings’ to show determination and aiming high, while others sketched ‘rosary beads’ to indicate they want to be closer to God. With their individual collections of images, the children put these together in a collage format and copied the now abstract images onto the treasure chests. Inside the beautifully decorated treasure chests the children have written 24 advent promises….one promise to be pulled out (and KEPT) for each day of advent!
Pupils in Years 5&6 have been re-designing logos belonging to well-known companies. They used the program 2Draw to create new and improved logos. The images below were designed by pupils in Mr Cooper’s class. Maybe we should email copies to the companies?!
Pupils in Year 2 have been learning how to construct Powerpoint presentations using images and audio sourced from the Internet. The presentation below is independent work which highlights their exceptional skills!
