As we are mid-way through our Lenten journey, we have been reflecting on the Lenten promises we made. Some of us are really pleased at how well we are doing with our promise, while some of us realise we need to make more of an effort to live out that promise. We talked about the importance of fulfilling promises we make, just like God always does…and our Lenten promises help us to be an even better version of our wonderful selves!
The first Lenten Challenge Mass was this morning at 8.15am, in the school hall, followed by a cup of tea and some toast in the dining hall. It would be lovely to see more faces joining us at next week’s morning mass, next Friday!
In Maths this week, we have been looking at time on a 24-hour clock. This always proves to be a trickier concept to get our heads around, but I have been so pleased with everyone’s understanding. We all now know how to tell whether it is an AM or PM time on a digital clock, without having to have a.m or p.m next to it.
In English, we have continued to look at the story ‘Sugarcane Juice’. We did some great drama of a particular part of the story. Our first drama was a mime, without any dialogue and the second version was with the dialogue. As our story is set in Pakistan, we have read about ‘rupees’ being exchanged, as this is their currency. The Rupee is also the currency in India, so we were so lucky that Ryan brought in a 20 Rupee note for us to look at in class…
Here are some other pictures of us mid-drama…
This week, we were also invited along to St Mary’s for an afternoon of Athletics. We played handball, took part in several mini-athletic events and learnt a dance from the Greatest Showman (my favourite film!). I was so impressed with the classes’ behaviour-they really did Our Lady’s proud! We also won a lot of the events, competing against other schools in Blackpool!
This week’s Golden Award went to Gabriella for being an absolute delight to teach, every day!!
This week’s Writing Award went to Tia for her amazing spelling!
I hope you all have a wonderful, well-rested weekend, ready for what I know will be another wonderful week of learning.
