Learned and Wise Summer Term Two 

Children at St Benedict's are growing to be . . . 

learned, finding God in all things; and wise in the ways they use their learning for the common good.

St Benedict's helps children to grow . . .

by the breadth and depth of the curriculum; by excellence of teaching, and the creation of opportunities to become more learned and wise.

Our God is a Great Big God

I thought I would share one of my favourite hymns with you all.

The Butterfly song is dedicated to you all! You are all amazing!

Summer Term 2020



 Welcome Back Harvington! I know these times are pretty strange, like we said in our message below, but it's now Summer Term already it's true what they say...time flies when you're having funlaugh


We are moving onto our new topic of Transport, this topic will be lots of fun. We are going to create our own vehicles, look at how transport has changed over time and research different modes of transport. In English our book this term is a classic, James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl. I know we briefly looked at this when we celebrated Roald Dahl Day but we only got to read a passage... so I'm hoping you will all enjoy it.


In Maths we have a little more work to do on fractions and time then we will move onto properties of shapes and measuring mass and capacity. Science we will be exploring Plants, investigating how plants grow and what they need in order to grow healthy, the functions of the different parts of a plant/flower and the life cycle of a plant/flower. RE we will be exploring Easter in more detail and reading the stories Road to Emmaus and Breakfast on the shore. 


Me and Mrs Haywood would like to remind you all that you are all doing a fantastic job with your home learning and we are so proud. 


You are all superstars!

We hope you are staying at home and being safe. Thank you for all your pictures so far of all the wonderful work you have been doing.

If you would like to share your work with your friends then please email us a picture and we can pop it on the website. It would be lovely for the class to see what you have been up too!


We are missing school and being in the classroom with you all but it is important you all stay home and be safe. 


Take care,


Miss Foxall & Mrs Haywood 





Eloquent and Truthful Summer Term One

Children at St Benedict's are growing to be . . . 

Eloquent and Truthful in what they say of themselves, the relations between people, and the world.

St Benedict's helps children to grow . . .

by developing an eloquent language which pupils can use to understand and articulate their emotions, beliefs, and questions, encouraged by the example of their teachers to be truthful in the way they represent themselves and speak about the world.

‘These have been written in order that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God’ John 20:31

Virtue and Value Graffiti

By Gracie
By Orla

 Faith-filled and Hopeful Spring Two 


Children at St Benedict's are growing to be . . . 

faith-filled in their beliefs and hopeful for the future. 

St Benedict's helps children to grow . . .

by passing on the living and faith-filled tradition of Jesus Christ; by having persevering faith in the pupils, and by encouraging them, in turn, to have faith and hope in others.




This half term we move onto exploring The Stone Age in our topic with a focus on the story 'The Stone Age Boy' in English. We will explore Light in science as well as statistics, measurement and fractions in or math lessons. RE will cover Lent and Holy Week.

"I am the handmaid of the Lord, let it be done to me as you have said" Luke 1::38

Power Week Activities

We had lots of fun during power week exploring more on our topic China! We made our own Chinese fans, 3D fortune cats and spiral Chinese dragons. We also had an opportunity to taste different Chinese food (some of us even used chopped sticks!) and wrote our own food review. We worked in pairs to plan and type our own newspaper reports on Chinese New Year and in math's had to crack the Chinese secret codes by working out different calculations. smiley


Our RE during power week was thinking about the sacrament of reconciliation. We took part in role play taking on the part of the priest and also the person receiving the sacrament. We explored the idea of the 'Examination of Conscience'.

 Not forgetting all the fun we had in our PE lesson. We spent the lessons practicing our circus performance ready for our parents to come and watch us after half term!



The scripture this half term is “Here is the light you will reveal to the nations” Luke 2:32.

Meditation - Praying in Colour

Why Pray in Colour?

1) You want to pray but words escape you. 2) Sitting still and staying focused in prayer are a challenge. 3) Your body wants to be part of your prayer. 4) You want to just hang out with God but don’t know how. 5) Listening to God feels like an impossible task . 6) Your mind wanders and your body complains. 7) You want a visual, concrete way to pray.
8) You Need a new way to pray.

Collective worship -"Here is the light you will reveal to all nations" Luke 2:32

The children thought about the following questions;

- What is your light?

- Who is your light?

- How will you spread the light to others?




Compassionate and Loving Spring One 2020


Children at St Benedict's are growing to be ...

Compassionate towards others, near and far, especially the less fortunate; and loving by their just actions and forgiving words.

St Benedict's helps children to grow ...

By being compassionate and loving in the way children are treated, especially when a child is in trouble; and by opening eyes of children to those who suffer poverty, injustice or violence.

Children have made a great start back after the Half Term.  We are busy learning all about China for our new Topic.  Animals including humans in Science and in literacy we are focusing on different myths and legends with particular focus on the story 'The willow pattern story'.

During the first week back we looked at the book 'We're all wonders' exploring the message of the book and how it links to this terms virtues of compassionate and loving. We created our own Sprinkle with kindness donuts and Art work with key word and actions that show not only kindness but compassion and love. 


Topic - China

We have been very busy in our topic lessons these past few weeks. Not only have we been doing lots of fantastic writing about Chinese New Year but we have also researched about many topics about China. We created our own class book which we will add more to at the end of our learning. Below you can see pictures of us creating our own Chinese drums! We learnt that in Ancient China drums were used to communicate. 

PE- Circus Gymnastics

During PE this term we have been developing our gymnastic skills. We have focused on different balances, forward rolls and using equipment such as hoops and ribbons.  

Attentive and Discerning Autumn Two 2019 

Children at St Benedict's are growing to be ...

Attentive to their experience and to their vocation; and discerning about the choices they make and the effects of those choices.

St Benedict's helps children to grow ...

By promoting the practice of attentive reflection and discerning decision making: in teaching, prayer and retreats; and through the practice and example of school staff.


Grateful and Generous Autumn One 2019

Children at St Benedict's are growing to be ...

Grateful for their own gifts, for the gift of other people, and for the blessings of each day; and generous with their gifts, becoming men and women for others.

St Benedict's helps children to grow ...

By encouraging them to know and be grateful for all their gifts, developing them to the full so that they can be generous in the service of others.
