Spring Term

Year 4 participated in BBC’s Live Lesson and we were very impressed by the creative writing they produced in their homework follow-up task.

 As a special reward for their hard work during the week, groups of children have also enjoyed baking on Fridays.

This term we are also looking forward to visiting 'Tesco Extra' in Leyland and taking part in their 'Farm to Fork' project. We will be finding out more about the journey our food makes from the farms where it is grown, to our plates.

Children’s Liturgy

In class 4, children take it in turns in small groups to prepare their own class Liturgy. In this Liturgy prepared by Nikita, Liya, Oliver and Finley , relaxing music was played as the class gathered together. They then showed that Jesus was amongst them by lighting a candle. The children read the word of God from the Bible and performed a small piece of drama depicting Jesus first appearing to his disciples after his  resurrection. The group then asked the class to join in their prayers and to reflect on the words and prayers as they passed a symbol of life between them. The class then thanked the group for sharing this lovely class worship.
