Year Six sold poppies in aid of the Royal British Legion's appeal in the lead up to our special Remembrance Day collective worship in school on November 10th. Each class brought letters made from poppies to spell out the first two lines of John McCrae's famous poem "In Flanders fields".
We have are delighted to be helping as sports leaders each lunchtime with groups from our class supporting the fun being had by each class doing sports activities on the field, lead by a coach.
This half-term's value is reverence - this fits in perfectly with our work on Remembrance and now Advent as we lead up to Christmas.
Once again, we supported the work of Operation Christmas Child which delivers boxes of Christmas happiness to children all over the world who otherwise would not have any gifts.
Year Six made up 33 boxes which have been sent by our school with love to those who have so much less than us.The cost of sending the boxes will be met from the collections in church after our presentations on December 11 and 12.
We continue our visits to Sandalwood - each Friday a small group from the class takes the goodies we have baked for Design Technology to be tested by our customers (and of course friends) and enjoy a chat and some games. The visits are enjoyed by our children and the residents alike and have lead to a good relationship being built up over many years. We look forward to residents joining us for our mince pie morning when the class will sing a selection of Christmas songs and we will be doing some carol singing at Sandalwood on Friday December 15 .
TRIP TO SEE JOSEPH
We really enjoyed our trip to see 'Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat' at the Liverpool Empire.We followed this up by working with classes on the theme of respect in the story and had a great time decorating biscuits, making "pop-up Josephs" and designing colourful coat bookmarks.
Year 6 pupils are allowed, if accompanied by a permission slip from parents, to bring a mobile phone if they travel to and from school without an adult. They, must of course, be switched off when they arrive and be placed in the box in the classroom until they leave.
The Ethos Group lead the school in celebrating our Harvest Festival in October. We looked at the African country of Chad, raising £408.03 for a sustainable project run by Tearfund. We also collected lots of tins and packets for a local foodbank. Thank you to everyone who brought in their collection boxes and food.
ST. LUKE'S DAY
We held our special St. Luke's Day service in school on October 18th. As our theme was respect, we thought about respect for the medical profession as St.Luke was a doctor. Rev. Amanda also shared thoughts about respect through one of the stories in the Acts of the Apostles, told by St.Luke.
WORK IN CLASS
After studying some World War I poetry, we have begun reading "Kensuke's Kingdom", another novel by Michael Morpurgo (though we will be taking a break from the book to read the Charles Dickens favourite, "A Christmad Carol").
We have just completed some colourful tangram patterns in maths and mosaic artwork based on angles and on the tiled floo of the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. A few weeks earlier we made fantastic marionette animal puppets aided by the expertise of Coverdale Puppets who are booked to do a show for the whole school at Christmas.
TRIP TO WAGAMAMA AND MUSEUM
On November 14 we visited Wagamama Restaurant in Liverpool One for some Japanese food tasting as part of our work on "Kensuke's Kingdom". Following this, we went to the museum of Liverpool University to do activities based on animal adaptation.
