In our worship assembly this morning, we heard a story about a man in the Old Testament named Abraham.
God asked Abraham to move to a new land – Canaan. Canaan was a beautiful place, but there was one problem for Abraham and his family. Abraham and his wife Sarah didn’t have any children.
God promised him that he would one day have as many members of his family as there were stars in the sky, or grains of sand on the beach. Abraham trusted in what God had him.
Soon enough, God’s promise was fulfilled when a Issac was born.
This story reminds us that God is someone we can all trust and that He wants to be our friend too.
Congratulations to our certificate winners this week!
We started our new topic question this afternoon which is ‘Why is Brazil in the news again?’
Year 5 did a great job trying to answer Learning Challenge 4 which asked ‘What can you find out about one of Brazil’s neighbouring countries?’
I love these animal masks that have come in as part of the children’s rainforest-themed homework for this half term!
Such a super effort Rebecca and Scarlet – they’re going to look perfect on our classroom rainforest display.
In French today with Miss Jackson, we have learned how to say another French phrase.
We now know how to say ‘My name is….’ in French. It is ‘Je m’appelle…’
Why not ask us to share our French with you?
Congratulations to Year 5 who were the school’s weekly attendance award winners for this week. Super effort children!
In English, we will complete and publish our piece of persuasive writing based around the question ‘Is it right to use the rainforest for its resources?’
Maths learning will focus upon the methods for addition and subtraction calculations.
Topic work this week will look at answering the question ‘Why is Brazil in the news again?’ which also links in to our previous rainforest topic.
On Thursday this coming week, the 12th, the school photographer will be in school taking individual photographs.
Thank you to everyone who brought in items of food or gave monetary donations as part of our Harvest celebrations in church today.
All food donated will be going to local food banks to help those in our communities that need it, and any money will be sent to Christian Aid.
It was also lovely to be able to thank Rector John for all that he has done as he prepares to leave for his new parish in Crosby.
In our English lessons today, we began to look at the following question…
‘Is it right to use the rainforest for its resources?’
We looked at FOR and AGAINST the argument.
It was great to put our skills to the test and play some mini games of hockey this afternoon with Mr Bradley.
As you can see from the photographs, we really enjoyed our PE lesson!
