Today we are taking part in the National Day of Reflection. It is 12 months since the Prime Minister delivered the difficult message to us all that the country was going into 'Lockdown'. Over the past 12 months a lot of people have lost their lives and many of us have endured difficult circumstances. Today we commemorate, reflect and pray.
We had a great time with our visiting engineer and scientist. He taught us how to make series circuits and parallel circuits using LEDs and circuit boards (which were called bread boards!) It was amazing.
He showed us his robots, that he had made and programmed himself- awesome!
He even danced for us! What a great workshop!
We had a great afternoon! Our visitor retold the story of Beowulf for us and we helped out by playing Grendel and adding sound effects!
We even got to try some drama techniques- he was very impressed with our skills!
October is the month of the Holy Rosary.
Today, Friday 2nd October, was our first class assembly as Year 6s. It was different to what we have been used to but we enjoyed preparing it and the other classes enjoyed listening to it. We narrated our assembly, teaching everyone about the history of the Holy Rosary, why it is important and reflecting on how special Mary is to us.
Everyone in school stayed in their own 'bubble' to listen to us and join in with our reflection-Separated but together in prayer.
During October how will you be more like Mary?
Today, we received our gold ties. We are officially Year 6's!
We have promised to be the best Year 6s ever! We are going to shine as brightly as our ties!
