Class teacher: Miss Gilligan, TA: Mrs Wheeler


Street Detectives - Class assembly 1st February 2019

Our class assembly gave us an opportunity to share our learning with the rest of our school community. The ‘Street Detectives’ topic has encouraged us to learn about our local area and find out about its history. We talked about the special aspects of our local community, and what makes it important to us. As unique members of this community, we can achieve anything together.

“I liked learning about how to look after our local community. I learned about different things like people who help us.” Alyssa


Nativity 12th and 13th December 2018

We worked hard to prepare for our Nativity, in which our class performed the starring roles. We sang beautifully and really enjoyed ourselves too.


“My favourite part of the Nativity was the singing. It’ important to act out the Nativity because it’s when Jesus was born.” Joshua

Visit to St Vincent’s church, 24th January 2018

Holy Books

As part of our learning about holy books, we visited St Vincent’s church and got to explore the books used by the parish family at Mass.

“ I enjoyed getting to stand where the priest stands at Mass. I learned about the holy books we use in church.” Alvin


Making ice cream 9th October 2018

Through our ‘Muck, Mess and Mixtures’ topic, we followed instructions to make ice-cream, using salt and ice cubes to freeze the mixture very quickly. We really enjoyed eating our creations too!
