Stations of the Cross
Today, we watched a video about The Stations of the Cross leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus. We then prayed and reflected on how these actions have saved us. In class, we then used freeze framing to act out the Stations for ourselves.
Today, we have reflected on what has happened over the past year. We discussed and prayed thinking of those who have lost their lives/loved ones due to Covid-19. We also considered the impact of how our lives have changed and what we have lost and gained in this time too. We used these ideas to write prayers and left them in the prayer garden.
We also looked at the rainbow symbol - what we lost, what we have gained presently and what we are looking forward to when this lockdown ends and we return to a normal life again.

As part of our Advent preparations, and to keep the true meaning of Christmas alive in our hearts and minds, Class 7 would like to raise some money for a local homeless charity during this half term. After discussions with the children, we have decided to arrange a ‘Guess the name of the Reindeer Teddy Competition’.
The competition and opportunity to guess the name will begin on Tuesday 1st December - so please send £1 with your child at some point that week if they would like to participate.
The name of the reindeer will be announced on Friday 11th December and will be taken home that night by the winner.
Miss Docherty, all of Class 7 and I really appreciate your support and thank you in advance.
Miss Mitchell, Miss Docherty and all of Class 7
Hello and welcome!!
We've had a very exciting first day back...All children have responded positively and purposefully to the beginning of their next stage into Key Stage 2. We've had a busy day getting to know each other and learning new routines and expectations.
Just a reminder that children will need to attend school on a Wednesday and Thursday dressed in their PE kits. This should include a suitable polo t-shirt and suitable footwear for completing outdoor sporting activities. In colder months, suitable jogging trousers/jumpers are also permitted.
Hold tight and we will be posting regular updates about what we get up to in class!
Miss Mitchell (Teacher) and Miss Docherty (Teaching Assistant)
Our quality text to focus on this half term will be, "Stone Age Boy." by Satoshi Kitamura.
Linked to this; for our topic we will begin investigating the very beginning of history, The Stone Age. We will be looking back at the way that they lived and how their lifestyle impacted upon the way we live our lives today.
