Nursery loved their first music lesson of the Spring term with Mr. Larkin! Every child sang their name to Mr. Larkin in front of the group, showing great confidence! They also practised using the beaters to keep the pulse and play different rhythms, even showing great teamwork to keep the pulse together with their beaters! 0 Comments
Year 2 attended the Epiphany Service at the Metropolitan Cathedral last Friday. We sang well known Christmas Hymns and three members of our class dressed up as the Three Kings. Year 2 were wonderfully behaved, as usual, and represented our school so well.0 Comments
We had a marvellous morning playing in the mud kitchen! The children made potions and hot drinks for each other, they dug holes and planted potatoes. We noticed lots of new flowers starting to break through the soil ready for spring and tidied up some of the leaves from Autumn.0 Comments
Today, we used challenge cards to make 2D shapes from lollipop sticks. We are developing our knowledge of the properties of shapes, such as the number of corners and the number of sides. Some of us can even explain the difference between a square and a rectangle!0 Comments
We have been learning about what happens to water when it gets cold or hot. We learned that ice melts when it gets warm. We left it in different places to see how it melts at different rates. The ice we left on the radiator melted first.
We we wondered what else melts… we tried chocolate ✅ and butter ✅. I love that 10 children went home and tested butter and chocolate with their parents!0 Comments
Year 3 began a new science topic today called ‘Rocks and Soils’. We looked at a soil profile and discovered the different sections that make up the world beneath our feet! We then made our own version of a soil profile using various ingredients to represent the bedrock, parent material, subsoil, topsoil and organic material. Take a look!One Comment

Today was our annual Christmas Music Assembly…and it was spectacular! Every class from Year 1 to Year 6 performed a piece that they had been working on with Mr Larkin, and we also had amazing performances from our Violin Club, our Clarinet Group and our Flute Group! Thank you to Mr Wellens from Resonate for teaching the woodwind players this term, and to Mr Morgan for leading the Violin Clubs after school. Speaking of Resonate, we were delighted that Mrs Burton from the Resonate Music Hub attended our assembly, and she surprised us by giving us a special award, making St. Patrick’s a Resonate Champion School!
Take a look at our performances using the links below!
