The Fresh Prince of Year 5!

The amazing Year 5 have been working on their rap skills this term in their music lessons! This week, they became recording artists, recording their version of the classic rap song The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air on GarageBand – brilliant!

As if that wasn’t enough, we decided to make our own rap video! Check it out on the link below!

St. Pat’s Got Talent 2018

We finished the term in style today with a beautiful church service for Holy Week, a lovely attendance assembly and, to top it all off, our annual St. Pat’s Got Talent spectacular! Children in each class from Nursery to Year 6 have been auditioning in their classes and practising hard to make through to the finals. The standard was so high again; the talent in this school is truly incredible! We had singing, dancing, piano playing, comedy and even magic!

In the end, Thomas and Alfie from Year 1, and Viyan from Year 6 were this year’s St. Pat’s Got Talent winners with their superb performances, but all the performers were outstanding. It was great to see so many parents there to support the children too, as always.

Well done, everyone and have a lovely Easter. Meanwhile, take a look at some of the photos and videos below!

We we had a fabulous time listening to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra this afternoon. So many of our children told me how ‘lucky’ they felt on the way home. What a privilege!

Poetry performances!

Today in English, we worked in groups to explore nouns and abstract nouns. We used dictionaries to define meanings, chose appropriate synonyms, up-levelled sentences and then finally performed our poems. Our teamwork was fantastic!

We have been very lucky to have had beautiful henna hand paintings, delicious food tasting and some excellent readings from Kareem and Yassin.

Debating and drama in RE.

In RE, year 5 took part in a debate to argue whether or not Jesus should have helped Levi to be a morally good person. We then used drama to role play how we make the right choices and support others.
