Faith Program Term 6

Father's Day cards 2016

We enjoyed making these cards using a variety of materials.

Pentecost inspired Art

We looked at different works of art that depicted Pentecost. We thought about the colour and energy in the pictures and how we would express this. After we used oil pastels to draw the disciples and expressed the power of the Holy Spirit through the colours we used.

Crowning of Mary Celebration May 2016

Class 2 led the 'Crowning of Mary' celebrations for the whole school and our parents. We took our flowers to the statue of Mary in the grounds of our parish church where Fr. Cosmas joined our celebrations.

Thank you to everyone in the school who brought in flowers.

Science - Observational drawing

This term our science topic is Plants and we are learning about parts of plants. We carried out careful observational drawing of the male and female parts of a flower plant.

Faith Program Term 5 - The Resurrection of Jesus

Avon Fire & Rescue Service visit Class 2

We had a Fire Safety visit from the Avon Fire and Rescue team. We found out about the different roles the fire and rescue service is responsible for, the rules of escape if there is a fire and the stop, drop and roll technique should our clothes catch fire. We learnt a lot of very important information.

Remember the Fire and Rescue team are happy to visit your home and carry out a fire safety check.

Look for the leaflet in your reading folder.


STAGES Dance festival - Colston Hall, March 2016

On Saturday 6th March, the children in Class 2 took part in 30th anniversary of STAGES dance festival. 

The event gives large numbers of school pupils the chance to show their love of music at the city’s premier performance venue Colston Hall. The Stages dance festival is an annual event that involves hundreds of children of all ages from Bristol schools and dance groups. 

Our children performed a dance inspired by Finding Nemo and Mrs Bridge and Mrs Arrowsmith were extremely proud of their confident performance. A wonderful experience!

Thank you for our 'Finding Nemo' celebration cake Mrs James
