Welcome Week

We had a fun week, settling back and seeing our friends again. We did great activities to get to know each other.  Coming back to school was very exciting and getting back into a routine again. 


In Art this week, we looked at how we can interpret symbols and what it means to us. We used charcoal to draw different images for what the words meant to us. Then, as a class we had to guess what each image was and what it signified. 


In RE we discussed the three Sacraments of Initiation- Confirmation, Baptism and Eucharist. We discussed and explained what actions, symbols and words are used to describe each Initiation and what it means. On sugar paper we brainstormed in groups and wrote what we knew already and then researched what other actions, words and symbols are used and why.


In groups we went around the playground and pond to see what dangers were posed for living things. We made a list of our observations and what could be done to help reduce the dangers.


We took turns to write four digit numbers and our partner had to round the number to the nearest 10, 100 or 1000. We checked to see if they were correct and then swapped roles. We learnt when to round down when the digit is less than four and when it is 5 or greater we round up.



In Literacy we have been looking at ‘Hansel and Gretel’. We read the story, we discussed the different characters and acted out using expression to s how thoughts and feelings.
