As part of our work exploring St Columba, we created a special mosaic of St Columba as a gift from our school to Bishop Tom. He had very kindly donated it to our parish church and Father Chris is very excited at finding a special place for it in our church. Look out for it on display.We are extremely proud of our work!
On Wednesday this week we were extremely excited to have a special visitor in our school who visited our class. We talked about ‘barriers’ and how we have choices to break down barriers in many ways. We prayed for God’s help to help us break down barriers. We also asked Bishop Tom lots of questions we had from learning about St Columba.
We had quiet reflection time in our new outdoor learning area. We thought about how we felt inside this space to help us to write suggestions for a suitable name for it. We finished by writing our prayers for Bishop Tom’s visit, thanking God for all those who help to break down barriers and to help those who face many barriers. We gathered together to share our prayers during collective worship.
We have been very busy making our mosaic of St Columba. It is almost finished. We are looking forward to showing our school community this week when it is finished.
We have been very busy this week in year 4 learning about St Columba and creating our own mosaic of St Columba. We have been thinking about breaking down barriers and have written some fantastic prayers.
As part of our talk for writing work, we completed mapping out our story from start to finish. We used dictionaries to find the meaning of new and unfamiliar words to create our own vocabulary grid with symbols to help us remember the meaning when we begin to use them in our own writing. We wrote about our likes, dislikes, puzzles and patterns we have notices while reading. Watch this space for examples of our fantastic writing…..
