Today, we had our second house event of the year; rapid fire 6Ts for Y3/and hockey for Y5/6. A massive thank you to all the Y6 children who helped break up the ice patches and set up the equipment. An even bigger thank you to the referees who, as usual, did an amazing job at making sure all children were involved and kept a fair score.
We managed to have two games each, I will announce the winners in Talent Assembly tomorrow and present the winning house with their certificate.
Today Mrs Bastable, from Watford Schools Trust, came into school again to talk about Jesus and the parables he told. We focussed on The Calming of the Sea. We acted out the story and saw the miracle of water being turned to wine! (It was really food colouring but it amazed the children!).
We made our own boat in a storm using card and a split pin to then use to retell the story. We thoroughly enjoyed the session and learnt a lot about Jesus and the different parables he told.
We are very proud of the choir who sang 7 Christmas songs to the residents of Arden House. Well done everyone! Merry Christmas!
Today, the house captains, head boy, head girl, deputy head boy and deputy head girl organised a film quiz for Key Stage 2. Year 3 and 4 did their quiz this morning.
This morning we have enjoyed an assembly from Revd. Waddell. Mr Gray from Three Rivers Refugee Centre also came to personally thank the children for the donations made. May we take this opportunity to thank you all for the generous donations made to such a worthy and local charity.
This morning we have watched a thought provoking performance by Magical Minds to understand different emotions, how we deal with them and to understand we need to experience all emotions to understand and complete our journey.
We had a fun afternoon learning how to strengthen paper. We found that layering and folding made it stronger.
Holly’s was so strong that she could stand on it for a few seconds!
We have been learning how to write Kennings.
Our Kennings are poems about us.
In History, we have been thinking about when the Stone Age happened and where it would lie on a timeline. We spaced ourselves out on the field to help us understand how long ago it was. If you look closely, you can just about see Fletcher at the end of the field.
