This week, we have been talking about what prayer means to us and why we pray. In our shared worships, we have been taking moments of silent prayer to talk to God about our own intentions as well as some shared prayers. This has all lead up to today when we took part in the Adoration and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. This was such a special occasion, as we had the opportunity to pray to Jesus, who was present with us in the Blessed Sacrament. We began the day with a whole school Mass to celebrate the Assumption and then we processed over to school, Fr Jim leading the procession with the Blessed Sacrament in the monstrance. In our individual classes, we then spent time to pray and adore Jesus, before the Bless Sacrament. The morning came to an end with the whole school gathering together again, as Fr Jim lead Benediction, in which we received a blessing. It was such a beautiful and peaceful morning and in Gabriella’s words, ‘it made me feel really refreshed and my heart feels full of love.’

In Maths, I have been sooooo impressed with year 4’s understanding and work on converting units of measurement. We have looked at the relationship between grams and kilograms and litres and millilitres, and used this to convert between the two.

In English, we have been planning our narrative, which we will draft next week. We have used the story of The Bogeymen and the Trolls Next Door to help us plan a new story, using the same characters and what we know about them.

In Science, we are investigating how distance effects sound, but more importantly, WHY? We have planned what we are going to do to investigate this, and we will carry this out next week. We can then use our results to answer the question WHY?

In D & T we have started to make our guitars. Steps 1 and 2 were to cut out our hole and paint the boxes. Here’s how we are doing with them so far….
