Year 3 have been making their own compasses as part of their science topic on magnets. The children had to rub a piece of metal to make the particles align. Once they had done this, they floated the metal on a cork in water and it pointed north, just like a compass.
Year 3 have begun to develop their tennis skills in PE. The children have been practicing their movements, making sure they can run forwards, backwards and side to side quickly. They went on to perfecting their aim by attempting to get a ball inside a hoop.
On Holy Thursday, the last day of term, each class in KS2 gathered to reflect on the symbols of Holy Week and to think about how to follow Jesus’ example of love and self-giving. A central focal point was created in our chapel in the grounds. Although the key stage were not able to come together for the liturgy it meant they could all visit the chapel as a class and reflect on the focal point created together. The younger children were also able to come and reflect on the symbols of Jesus’ passion.
