This week Reception class was visited by Mrs Mehari and her
newborn Eleanor. The children asked questions to find out more about Baby
Eleanor, and her mummy told us what she needs to do to look after her.

the visit this week. Thank you to Eleanor, Mummy and big brother Ebenezer for
talking to us about your family.
Big sister Cheah also has been speaking proudly about her baby sister. A huge ‘congratulations!’ to these families from Reception class.

This week in Year 4, following all the research we have done about our own family heritage, we had a lovely visit from Fr. Pat who helped us to learn more about Jesus’ human family and how Jewish life was for Mary and Joseph in Nazareth during Jesus’ childhood. Fr Pat talked about team work and the roles Joseph and Mary had ensuring the household ran smoothly, always keeping God a central part of their life. As we learn how families are all different shapes and sizes today, we are reminded of the love that is shared. Children enthusiastically reenacted a day in the life of Mary, Joseph and Jesus in their drama session.
As it is the Month of Mary we have made our very own statues of Mary. We used different paper techniques to create her.
This week children have been exploring further the articles supporting the Rights of children. Children worked in groups to discuss the articles before writing down their responsibilities to help ensure they were respected for themselves and others. Great work Year 4 !
In class we read sorted a primary resource timeline all about the life of George Mottershead. He is the man who created Chester Zoo.
We worked together in our groups and discussed which order our
pictures should go in.
We are happy with how we worked together and justified our
timeline based on our primary sources.
