Last Friday, Key Stage One led a beautiful liturgy to celebrate the love shown by Mary. We remembered who she is to us, how she protects us and how our mothers do the same. Excellent reading and lovely singing. Thank you to Father John and all the parents who joined us.
Key Stage One had a lovely afternoon visit from teachers at the Nottingham Girls High School. We learnt about coordinates with Robin Hood and then created designs for our cans. These are then being taking back to the High school where the children there will use special tools to bore holes into the tin cans we collected and following our patterns. Each can will then be filled with a candle and released on Light Night on Friday 23rd February.
This morning, the children from Key Stage one and Foundation joined together with the rest of the country to observe a minute silence and remember the tragic events of Monday night in Manchester. We prayed to our Mother, Mary, and asked her to look after all of the people affected. Year One also wrote some prayers of their own and shared them with us.
‘Little pig, little pig let me in!’ The Year 1 children were very busy over the Easter holidays building houses for the Three Little Pigs! What fantastic creators we have in our classes – Super work!
In RE we have been focusing on Holidays and Holy days. The children have created some beautiful stained glass crosses for this topic. The children really worked hard on these pieces of Art and they are truly beautiful. Well done Year 1!
We have been some very busy bees in Year 1 this week, we have even planted some cress seeds as a Science experiment! The children used the materials independently to plant their own cress seeds. Now we wait to watch them grow!
As the sun was shining this week we decided it was time to go on a flower hunt! All of the Year 1 children made a visit to our allotment to see what flowers they could find. The children found lots of different flowers, including Daffodils, Lilies, cherry blossoms and tulips! We are now ready to create some beautiful flower artwork next week!
Year One and Two have had a fantastic afternoon designing and making lanterns for the Light Night celebration. We were visited by a teacher from the Nottingham Girls High school, who showed us how to make the lanterns that will be released on the Arboretum Park pond on Friday 10th of February. Each child made their own lantern and the high school will take them along on the night, fill them will a candle and release them onto the pond.
