Please find attached our recent year group newsletters. We can’t wait to share all of the wonderful things we will be learning about with you.
This term Year One have been having lots of fun in the Secret Garden. Over the last few weeks we have learnt about the rules of the Secret Garden, experimented mark making using our own mud and berry paint, been on a nature hunt, made nature pictures and learnt about how to look after birds. All of the children have followed our special safety rules in the garden and been very sensible. Mrs Cawthorn and Mrs Kish have loved their enthusiasm and how well the children work as part of a team.
Throughout school, the children have taken part in different workshops to help them explore Science further. Each class visited two different workshops and conducted some experiments to learn more. The children have had a fantastic day and enjoyed all of the activities planned.
Today Miss Fawcett class and Mrs Cawthorn/Mrs Balfour’s class had a brilliant time with local artist Laura Brenchley working on a project for Nexus. They were each given a piece of cardboard and had to use magazines to collage a picture onto it. They worked so hard and had some fantastic ideas! Each tile will be collaged together and used to make a display in local Metro Stations later this year. We can’t wait to see them!
Our children have had a fantastic World Book Day today. It has been lovely being able to celebrate all together again in school and we have loved seeing the children’s happy smiling faces as they came into school dressed up.
Thank you to our wonderful staff for their effort today and most importantly, thank you to our parents for your support with this!
We would like to share with you some photographs from the day but also a story that we have created together as a school. Due to not being able to celebrate together recently, we decided to create something which would unite the whole school and decided that this would be a lovely way to reunite our lovely school community. Each class was given 10 minutes to write a part of the story and worked together to create this final piece. We are so proud of our school and the children for producing such a lovely piece of writing. Well done team Aloysius!
We have all had a fantastic number day in school today celebrating all things number. The children have enjoyed completing a range of maths related problems and tasks and loved showing their number costumes around school. A fantastic day has been had by all!
Our lovely lower school children celebrated an excellent Christmas liturgy earlier in the week.
