Learning to live out our calling with compassion and love.


St Francis of Assisi


Did you know that Saint Francis of Assisi was the first person to create the nativity scene! As a year group we looked at the different artists who have painted the nativity and compared them. Afterwards, we had a go at painting our own using our artistic skills.



Science - Light and Shadows


Our science topic for the start of the Spring term is Light and Shadows. The children learn't what opaque, translucent and transparent mean. Afterwards, they conducted an experiment to find out which materials are opaque, which materials are translucent and which materials are transparent. Next week, they will be using their findings to make shadow puppets with the most practical materials. 

Science - Rocks and Soils


As part of our science curriculum the children have been finding out about different types of rocks. We have learnt that fossils are found in sedimentary rock. The children have been making their own fossils of dinosaurs using dog biscuits!
