Harvington,

 

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. It's lovely to see you are all working hard even though it feels a little strange. It has been great to talk to you and your parents on the phone, as always you all put a smile on our faces. 

 

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.

 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.

Power Week Activities

Power Week Activities  1

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

Meditation - Praying in Colour 1

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

Collective worship -"Here is the light you will reveal to all nations" Luke 2:32 1

The children thought about the following questions;

- What is your light?

- Who is your light?

- How will you spread the light to others?

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'.

Picture 1

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.

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.
