Wow! What a fantastic day we’ve had in school today. There were so many different outfits and the creativity was brilliant. We had a great take-off, in-flight entertainment and finally a superb landing. A huge thank you from Stella Airways for making Airport day a great success.
A big thank you to Graham Brooks who joined us and told us all about life as a pilot.
Graham explained how he had become a pilot and showed us some of the different aeroplanes he had flown during his career. We were fascinated to see the inside of the cockpit and also watch a video taken from this place showing us a landing, whilst Graham talked us through what he would be doing.
He also demonstrated with a piece of paper what happens to the wings as air rushed over and under them.
Thank you Graham, we had a wonderful time and learnt lots.
Today we visited church and Father Rose talked to us about the Sacrament of Reconciliation. We spoke about what we do before and during this sacrament and he showed us some of the special places in church we could use.
Today we have been making our brains work very hard and thinking of ways to group shapes using a Venn diagram. We used lots of mathematical vocabulary to help us, like quadrilateral, right angles, parallel lines and sides.
Last week we were joined by a local librarian who told us all about the summer reading challenge which takes place every year during the summer holidays.
All you need to do is sign up at your local library, then read six library books of your choice to complete the Challenge. There are exclusive rewards to collect along the way, and it’s FREE to take part!
The Summer Reading Challenge website helps you keep track of your reading all year round: find new books to read, take part in competitions and mini challenges, and play games.
The Summer Reading Challenge 2019 theme is Space Chase, an out-of-this-world adventure inspired by the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.
The librarian used some of our children and Mrs Robinson to get dressed up for the first space visit.
