St. Pat’s Rock the Echo Arena with Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters!

What an amazing experience! Six children from Years 5 and 6 have just performed at a sold-out Echo Arena with none other than Roger Waters from Pink Floyd! Jessica, Roya, Josh, Ibrahim, Sarah and Brendan learned the band’s famous song ‘Another Brick in the Wall’, rehearsing the lyrics and choreography at KIND alongside 6 children from other schools, before performing the number in front of 11,000 fans last night! The children even got to meet Roger Waters himself backstage for a chat and a photograph!

Thank you to KIND for helping to give the children such an incredible experience, and thank you to Mrs Smith for looking after the children all night at the arena! The children were absolutely fantastic and we are all so proud of them! You rock!

Finding out about leaves…

We went on a leaf hunt this week in Year 2 and collected as many different types of leaves as we could find on the school grounds. Once we brought the leaves back to class, we used our iPads to research the tree or plant each leaf belonged to and wrote the information on our whiteboards. We found the most amazing leaves leaves, in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Science is so much fun!

Year 4- Science Lesson: Exploring flowering and non-flowering plants!

This term we have been looking at the unit Environment, Ecology and Evolution. The children are learning about living things and exploring how plants reproduce. Today, we enjoyed a practical lesson in Year 4 where we made playdough bees and ‘pollinated’ apple blossom flowers. The children were extremely enthused throughout the lesson, and we are going to video the process in next week’s lesson. Watch this space! Miss O’ Sullivan.

Fantastic fun at the farm!

Reception had a WONDERFUL day today at Church farm. We went on a tractor ride, fed alpacas and sheep, met geese and collected eggs from the hen house. Then we held some gorgeous guinea pigs! We enjoyed our lunch, then had a play in the park, and had great fun at the indoor beach and with the pedal tractors. We asked lots of good questions, and learnt such a lot! Have a look at our pictures.

Stone Age in Shropshire

We just loved our visit to see Cave Man Dan in Shropshire! It was such an incredible way to consolidate our learning on the Stone Age and just amazing to meet a REAL cave man!

The children made arrow heads and fat lamps and had a workshop where they handled Stone Age artefacts: obsidian knives, animal skins, containers and tools.
