Class 1 Stay and Play

The children in Class 1 had lots of fun showing their parents the what they do in school.

 

Chickens

Class 1 had some exciting visitors when Mrs Irons brought some of her chickens into school.  We had the opportunity to see these birds up close and observe them, and even had the chance to stroke their lovely soft feathers. 

Class 1 Assembly - Jonah and the Whale

Class 1 led an assembly based on the story of Jonah and the Whale, attended by the whole school and their families. They worked very hard  learning their lines , singing a song and saying a prayer using sign language.

Baptism with Father Firth

Father Firth visited the school to show the children what happens in a Baptism.  He performed a mock Baptism on our class doll  and the children chose the name Elijah.  Class 1 and 2 children had a wonderful experience learning about this special sacrament.

Thank you to all parents who came to our ‘stay and play’ session. The children enjoyed sharing their classroom and learning with their families. It was lovely to see such a large number of you.
