Junior School Update


Year 4
The
Year 4 students have been very busy this term, with our preparation for the celebration
of First Eucharist. We were lucky enough to have Mr. Shelton take us on a visit
to the Church and explore the sacred symbols and objects in there. 
We
participated in a wonderful Eucharist Retreat Day with St. Helena’s Catholic
Primary School and learned a lot about the ways God shows love for us through
the Eucharist.
The Year
10 students visited us to talk about Religious Education – we were able to
teach them a thing or two about the Eucharist! They were very surprised and
impressed.
We
have been sharing our wisdom with the Pre-primary and Year 1 students. They
visited us and we read them our individual ‘Poetry Anthologies’, surprising
some of them with our haiku poems where they had to guess the cryptic clues to
find out the topic. That was a lot of fun!
We
also mentored the Pre-primary students in using the app ‘Puppet Pals’. They
needed to explain to us recounts of their morning and their learning over the
term.
We’ve
been exploring non-fiction texts and have worked on sharing our thoughts and
ideas in Reciprocal Teaching sessions. Look at how many contributions we each
made to the groups’ discussion!
