A huge thank you!

We wanted to share our huge thanks with Herald Lodge Care Home. We are so lucky to have made a community link with this care home and in the lead up to Christmas were due to go and sing some Christmas carols with the residents. Although this has been postponed we were overwhelmed to receive a gift for each of our children for Christmas.

The children were so excited and so incredibly grateful. We cannot wait to go and visit the care home and hopefully give back some smiles that they gave to our children.

Maths Madness!

A wonderful start to our term with the children able to recap our learning from Autumn Term maths learning and then beginning our new unit of multiplication.

The children worked well last week to understand number, from recognition to formation and simple addition/subtraction. The children showed their skills and growing confidence in counting, ordering and matching number to demonstrate how far they have come since September.

This week we have started a new unit. Although seeming a little worried and unsure to begin with, their faces once they had learnt the new method was so lovely to see. Take a look at some happy and proud faces below!

Advent Day!

Year One were very excited to take part in our Advent Day on Friday. They came into the classroom to discover that all of the cloths that were once green were now purple ready for advent. We looked at the advent wreath and then had a go at making out own (with the help of the very talented Mrs Fox).

The children created a beautiful wreath for our classroom and knew why we have a circle wreath to show God’s never-ending love for us. We then created our own advent wreaths in our books to help us count down the weeks until Christmas.

Some very exciting weeks lie ahead, and it was lovely to reflect on the true meaning of this most special season.

A busy week for Year One!

WOW! What an exciting week we had together in Year One. We played in the autumn leaves outside and what beautiful smiles it brought to our class.

We used our ingredient list that we had made as part of our English instructional writing to create a shopping list and took to the aisles of Morrisons to find the ingredients we needed to make our chocolate cupcakes. The children behaved exceptionally well and many members of the public came to comment on how wonderful and polite they were. As a treat for our behaviour, we got some delicious doughnuts to enjoy when we got back to school.

We ended the week by getting dotty for Pudsey and supporting children in need. Our final task to celebrate our writing was to actually make the cupcakes and what an amazing job they did! Okay… we may have ended up with more flour on our carpets (sorry Mr Barrett) than in our bowls but through working in our house groups we managed to bake some beautiful chocolate cupcakes following our instructions.

This week the children have a trip out to the cinema to see Paw Patrol the Movie as part of the Into film festival. We will provide the children with a snack and drink. We will leave after the children have eaten their lunch and hope to be back by 3.15 but 3.30 at the latest.

As part of our D&T project we are asking that the children bring in one empty plastic bottle with them by Thursday, it can be any size or shape. If you have more than one please free to send extras in too, these will be gratefully received and used

Go Green for CAFOD!

On Friday 1st October 2021 we will be supporting the CAFOD family fast day.
We are asking the children to come in any green clothes they have, fancy dress welcomed, to show our support for the CAFOD appeal.
World leaders are meeting in Glasgow this November for a crucial meeting about the climate crisis and the future of our planet and its people. The Go Green appeal encourages Catholic schools around England and Wales to unite and fundraise to support communities around the world who are protecting the planet.

We are asking for a donation of non-perishable food for our local food bank and a donation to the CAFOD appeal (a suggested donation of £1 per family).

The Coventry food bank urgently need:
-biscuits
-chocolate
-UHT long life milk
-packets of mash
-snacks e.g. cereal bars and crisps
-tinned fruit
-tinned potatoes
-coffee

 

Thank you in advance for your support.

A very special trip

We were delighted to celebrate our first mass of the year! We were able to share in our mass with Year 2 and Year 3 who were just as excited to be there as we were.

We can’t wait to celebrate more masses with our parish community.

Year 1+2 trip to Twycross Zoo

We are really looking forward to our trip to the zoo with the children tomorrow. Just a couple of reminders:

  1. We are due back at 3.15 and will release the children as usual from classrooms.
  2. Please send your child with a bottle of water as it is supposed to be a hot day!
  3. Ensure they have been covered with long-lasting sun cream and a hat.

Thank you for your support,

Year One Class Mass

What a wonderful way to begin our last half term together! Year One were very lucky to have their class mass this morning and my goodness were we excited! The children were an asset to the school and participated in the mass respectfully throughout.

Even though we were a little out of practise, the children tried their very best to join in and when they were not sure they gave it a go anyway. It was so lovely to gather together with a few members of our parish and Father Paul to celebrate mass and we cannot wait to come back soon!

With huge thanks to Father Paul, Deacon Paul and all the stewards who welcomed us back.

Look out on the calendar for the class masses to follow.
