Last Friday, on 14th October 2016, a group of our KS2 pupils ventured into Manchester to welcome the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to our city. They were fortunate enough to get to the front of the crowd;the rest is history! Enjoy reliving this unique, once-in-a-lifetime experience which our pupils were so grateful to receive. Thank you to Miss Lavelle, Miss McNamara and Mrs Aldred for taking the pupils…
Pupils from Classes 5 and 6 (Miss Kildunne and Miss Lavelle) created work for and then planted a time capsule to help us commemorate our 60th anniversary. See the video here:
Today, Class 5 pretended they were on a school trip to the forest. However, the coach left Class 5 behind! In Science they have been learning about the basic needs of humans and animals; one of which is shelter. Miss Lavelle set the challenge of building a shelter that would protect them until help arrived. They were given sheets of material, rope and could use any natural resource too. They had a little competition between the girls and the boys to see who could build the best, protective shelter.
This week, in Literacy, Class 5 have been learning all about instructions. They made fruit kebabs and have also written a set of instructions so that you can make your very own fruit kebabs at home. Take a peek at their cookery show. Enjoy!
Children from Year 2, Miss Lavelle’s class, today led us in an assembly which focussed upon how God will always be with us as we travel along the journey of life. They showed us how far they have come on their Christian journey and talked about their hopes for the future. The first video below explains some of the pupils’ aspirations, the second how we must have high hopes!
Following on from yesterday’s post, we are extremely proud to present the stop animation project completed by Mrs Bourke’s and Miss Lavelle’s classes. Many thanks to the BBC’s Mr Mayer for his teaching and guidance. Please leave a comment below!
The pupils in Mrs Bourke’s and Miss Lavelle’s classes have been studying the genre of graphic novels in literacy. They have focussed on a ‘superhero’ theme and have written their own comic book stories in class. Following this, a stop-animation expert from the BBC visited school and helped the children turn their work into a multimedia project. Many thanks to Mr Mayer for visiting school and helping the children with this wonderful project. Keep your eyes peeled for the forthcoming videos!
Miss Lavelle’s Year 1 class have been learning about how school would be without any rules! The children led an assembly where they presented to the school a short video investigating what this would be like. They quickly found out that a school without rules could be chaotic and no fun for anyone!
This term pupils from Year 5 have been participating in a Spanish speaking after-school club, led by Miss Lavelle. They have been learning the art of the conversation and the video below demonstrates their wonderful skills!
