Hello and welcome back to a new school year at Our Lady of Lourdes. My name is Mr McNally and I will be teaching Year 4 with Mrs Nobrega. We are really excited to have your children in our class and we are really looking forward to getting to know you and the pupils.

GORDON BROWN TRIP

DAY 1

Good morning from Gordon Brown

 

Well what a fantastic day we had yesterday!

 

Once we arrived at the centre we had a jammed packed afternoon which included a site tour and meeting all the lovely animals. This was followed by a hearty lunch in preparation for our afternoon activity - Fires and Cooking.

 

Here are just some of the photos from yesterday - more to follow today

DAY 2

Good morning

Here are some photographs from our action packed day yesterday.

 

Our day began with a hearty breakfast followed by physical and team building activities. We ended the day around the campfire , where we suspended our ‘Healthy Eating’ policy for a short period. The children have been an absolute credit to you and the school, I would go as far as saying that in the 10 years I’ve been bringing children here they have been the best yet!

 

Our favourite comment of the week has been ‘I never knew cleaning could be so much fun’

 

We have our final activity at 9am and we are aiming to leave the centre at 1:30 to be back by the end of the school day.  We will however keep the school updated on our progress. Should we experience any delays we will send you a text message.

 

It’s been a fabulous trip , see you all soon

We are working together to highlight the features of a persuasive letter.

We were trying to decipher numbers in different scripts by looking for patterns. This really required a lot of reasoning and problem solving skills.

Today we compared amounts of objects. We had to analyze different representations and use our place value knowledge.

As part of Black History Month we have been looking at the life of Nelson Mandela.

We had an African drumming workshop, it was a lot of fun learning to play a new instrument and learn about African culture.

A past pupil from our school came in and told us about how she is now playing Tina Turner in a big musical production in London. Follow your dreams and do not give up.

We created these tetrahedrons to symbolise the Holy Trinity. The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

We have been learning about Apartheid and trying to imagine what life might have been like living under these unfair laws.

Our spellings for next week.

Our Talking Homework this week is; What are the Beatitudes and what can we learn from them?

Our Talking Homework this week is- What does Jesus teach us about forgiveness?

Our spellings for next week.

Parents’ Evening will be held in the Year 4 classroom on Monday 22nd November. We ask you to wear masks and use hand sanitizer when entering the school as per our covid-19 policy. Thank you.

 

Our talking homework this week is-  How can you show that you are preparing for Christmas in this season of Advent?

We throughly enjoyed our trip to Westminster Cathedral. We got to watch a Christmas Nativity and participate in the singing. We loved singing Christmas Caroles, the best way to start the Christmas Festivities.

These are the lyrics to the song we will be singing at our Nativity Performance. Happy practising.

We are really enjoying our new class book, 'The Boy At The Back Of The Class.' We did a role on the wall activity for Ahmet who is a main character in the book. He is a refugee boy who comes to London from Syria.

We were learning how to draw a crown, colour it using a new technique the adding sugar paper to give it a 3D effect.

We took it in turns to role play two of the main characters from our class book. We had to think of the answers to 11 different questions the narrator had for Ahmet.

This is us taking part in a Math workshop that involved us moving and solving Math problems. It was a lot of fun.

This term we have been learning how to play cricket. We are getting really good.

We learnt how to make a mini book from a famous author.

We acted out Ahmet's escape story from Syria to London.

We learnt how to make an Asian inspired noodle dish. It was so much fun learning different cooking techniques.

Father Tony joined us and explained to us all about the sacraments. He showed us what he does when he anoints the sick.

We took part in a Brain Busters Math workshop. It was a lot of fun and really challenging too.

This was our World Book Day workshop. We had to work as a team to create different scenes and items.

We all dressed up as our favourite book characters for World Book Day.
