Year 6

Greetings from Holy Island

Year 6 are currently having a fantastic time at the SVP camp on Holy Island. So far, the children have walked around the island visiting some beautiful places that are only accessible on foot. Also, the children have visited the beach where they were challenged to find pieces of wood to build a camp fire. Once the fire was ready, the children then toasted marshmallows and made smores. Yesterday the children took a boat trip around the Island where they were able to see live seals sun bathing on the beach along with some rare birds.

Hopefully this will upload successfully as we have a very limited internet connection.

 

 

Pentecost Parade!

On Monday afternoon, the whole school took part in a special liturgy to celebrate the Feast of Pentecost. Everyone assembled in the hall  to hear the story of Pentecost and to think about the Fruits of the Holy Spirit (Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Generosity, Gentleness, Faithfulness and Self-control) and how we use those gifts for the good of others. After that the children processed out to the field waving or wearing their flames and streamers which they had made in class to represent the power of the Holy Spirit. The liturgy continued outside with prayer and ended with a hymn.

 

Forest School – Fun with shelters and water

Today Year 6 were challenged with making a shelter using only a piece of tarpauling and a limited supply of rope. The children had to make sure that the shelter was water tight from above. This meant, if their tarpauling conatined holes, they must look at different ways in which to stop the water geting through. To make things a little more exciting when testing their designs, each group of children had to sit under their shelter whilst Mr Patterson and Mr Davis poured a jug of water over the top. Safe to say, all of the shleters held the water out and none of the groups got wet. Well done Year 6!!
