Pupils will work in teams to design, plan and create an innovative solution to the following sustainability challenge, set by our Sustainability Managers:
Roxanne and Jamie:
“Year 5 took part in the John Lewis Challenge. we came up with creative ideas and then made them come to life. These are what our five groups made:
We think all the groups did brilliantly and will be tough competition.
Our current topic of Pentecost is coming to a close and the final piece of work required the children to describe the actions and rationale of people they identified as Pentecost people. Thanks to our parents and grandparents we were able to represent a range of faiths including Judaism, Hinduism, Islam and Buddhism. Father Denis kindly agreed to join us and be interviewed by the different classes about his life in faith.
This is excellently captured by Abigail Gage in Year 3 who reported her understanding of the interview:
“Father Denis said, “Faith is about seeing Jesus in everyone, loving people and treating others like you want to be treated.Believing in Jesus is moral choice because you can choose to follow in the footsteps of God or not to follow in the footsteps of God”
Many thanks to Father Denis and our other contributors.
Please enjoy our newsletters about the RE learning for this half term:
The bar model is a valuable tool which helps children recognise what the question is asking them to do. It is not a calculation strategy and as such does not replace column addition or subtraction but goes alongside to add clarity. The key language is the whole and the parts and to reinforce that we subtract from the whole to find parts and add parts together to find the whole.
Please find attached the PowerPoint for the workshop last night. We hope to provide another opportunity in the summer term with a focus on multiplication and division.
