Junior School Update

The Kindergarten children have settled beautifully into routine and are enjoying playing with their new friends both inside and outside. We have been completing lots of different activities to help us recognise our name, what we look like and who is in our family. During Religious Education, we have learned that God made us beautiful on the inside and outside and that we are a part of His family too.

Year 2
The Year 2 students have had a wonderful start to the new school year. The children have responded very well to their new learning spaces and area of the school.
We spent time talking about the special time we are now entering called Lent and the significance of Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday. We learned that Shrove Tuesday marks the day before the beginning of the long fast of Lent.
The custom of making pancakes arose through the need to use up food items, which were forbidden during Lent.
We put our Master Chef skills to the test and made our very own mini pancakes!
We poured and flipped the pancakes on the electric frying pans! Our finished pancakes were delicious and the envy of all the other classes!
We each created a special Lenten Promise – something we would try hard to do during Lent. Many of our Lenten Promises involved helping others and showing kindness to our friends and family.
We are looking forward to putting our ideas into action!
