Loretto music performance

Yesterday we were treated to a special musical performance by students from Loretto College. Thank you so much to everyone that played. We are amazed by how talented you all are…

`Island Hopping’ by Louis from year 4

Following on from our Imaginative story writing in the Autumn term and more recently, World Book Day, children have been inspired to write their own Fiction/Non- Fiction books. Children have begun to discuss their story writing ideas to the class this week in English and have been reading their finished work out loud with growing confidence.
We have been discovering even more about one another and here we share  Louis’ passion for writing inspired by his topic work about WW2 in his imaginative story, ‘Island Hopping’. Fantastic, well done!

YEAR 3 HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT THE PARKING OUTSIDE SCHOOL

Children in Year 3 are exercising their right to express their views, feelings and wishes as outlined in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child:

ARTICLE 12 (RESPECT FOR THE VIEWS OF THE CHILD)

EVERY CHILD HAS THE RIGHT TO EXPRESS THEIR VIEWS, FEELINGS AND WISHES IN ALL MATTERS AFFECTING THEM, AND TO HAVE THEIR VIEWS CONSIDERED AND TAKEN SERIOUSLY.

Dear Parents and Carers

I am annoyed because people are parking on the yellow zig-zags. Please show you care for the children who have to walk to school. Can you park somewhere else?

SHOW YOU CARE, PARK ELSEWHERE!

Dear Parents and Carers

I am writing to you because I am super annoyed with you parking on the yellow zig-zag lines. Would you like it if you were a small, little Reception child trying to cross the road with oncoming traffic? You and the driver couldn’t see each other. You could get run over and badly injured.

Dear Parents/Carers

I am writing to you so people stop parking on the yellow zig-zag line. I am cross about it! You could be responsible for someone getting hurt.

You shouldn’t park on the yellow lines that are shaped like zig-zags. They are there to tell you DON’T PARK THERE! You could park somewhere else!

Gabriella writes:

Dear Parents and Carers

I am very annoyed about some people parking on the yellow lines.

You are not helping children to have the right to be safe.

Do you want children to get injured or killed?

If you don’t, then don’t park on the yellow lines.

Dear Parents and Carers

I am angry at you. Would you like to know why? Well please don’t park on the zig zag yellow line. You might ask, “Why not?” I’ll tell you why. If a child was trying to see if it was safe to cross the road and cars were parked on the yellow line, the driver that is coming down the road couldn’t see and the child couldn’t see. They might both have a terrible accident or the child could even get killed! Please instead, park further down the road or walk.

Thank you for reading this letter. From Amelie B Year 3

Dear Parents and Carers

I feel angry because people who park on the yellow lines put other people in danger.

Can you all not park on the yellow lines and please be careful. You have to park elsewhere!

Maiyah writes:

Dear Parents/Carers

It is unacceptable to park on the yellow zig zag lines.

You are putting your car before children.

If you are parking on the yellow lines, then children can’t see if a car is coming.

If they go in the road, a car may crash into the child and they could be injured or even KILLED!

Shania writes:

Dear Parents and Carers

Would you like to know why I am so mad????

Okay! Some people have been parking on the yellow line and it clearly says, ‘SCHOOL KEEP CLEAR.’

You shouldn’t park on the yellow line! Really, you need to park away from the yellow line because the children in our school need to be safe.

Please respect this.

IF YOU CARE, PARK ELSEWHERE!!!!

If you live close by then you could walk or go on your bike.

Dear Parents and Carers

I’m not happy! I’m angry about parents putting children in danger!

Please listen.

Show you care, park elsewhere!

Tayondre writes:

Dear People

You have got to stop parking on the yellow zig zag lines.

You are putting people in danger.

It is not fair for us.

The school is trying to keep your children safe.

If you park on the yellow line and there is a child waiting to cross the road, they cannot see because your car is there.

Dear Parents / Carers

I am writing to you because people are parking on the zigzag yellow line.

If you park on the yellow line, do you know what you’re doing?

YOU ARE BREAKING THE LAW!!!

 

Architects of the future in year 4

It was wonderful to see so many children being creative with the building blocks in their Golden time, many characters came to life, Krusty Krab, Spongebob Square Pants. There were challenges too to create towers taller than the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur !!! :0)
Architects of the future perhaps?
