Year 4 made poppies and wrote messages to remember the soldiers of the First World War. We visited a local war memorial to lay the wreaths and to find out about the history of those that served in the local area. They found out a lot about what life was like as a miner and a soldier in the war. We were invited back to visit next year!
Year 4 learnt how to fence! It was great fun. We learnt how to lunge, how to defend ourselves and how to move with accuracy.
We also have a weekly collective worship. The children have started leading their own sessions. During collective worship we explore and understand the values at the heart of our daily, catholic life. From forgiveness and humility, to gratitude and justice, collective worship gives us a space and time to reflect.
