PEER ASSESSMENT

We have been working hard to write a persuasive speech about the best character in The Iron Man. Today we worked with each other to assess our writing. We looked for persuasive features such as rhetorical questions, hyperbole and power of 3 amongst others. We will now go back and edit and redraft our speeches.

ZUMRAH AND AMELIA CLASS COLLECTIVE WORSHIP

Thank you to Zumrah and Amelia for our Class Collective Worship. They led us through the conversion of St Paul. We listened to Scripture from The Acts of the Apostles. We responded by writing bidding prayers asking God to help to be more like St Paul. As we go  forth Zumrah asked to think about how we can spread God's message as St Paul did.

TIMES TABLES ROCKSTARS!

We found out that a lot of us are not getting onto TTRS enough. Please use the link to get practising! All the children have been given their own login card again. Remember every two weeks there will be a Rockstar of the week announced in Congratulations Assembly. Will it be you? CLICK HERE FOR TTRS ACTION

DIYA AND OLUWANIFEMI CLASS COLLECTIVE WORSHIP

Thank you to Diya and Nifemi for our Class Collective Worship. They chose for us to gather at our prayer table focussing on a painting of Jesus calling the fishermen to be his disciples. We listened to the scripture from St Matthew's Gospel. We responded by sharing our thoughts of how the disciples felt being called by Jesus. Thank you to Shahnain, Zane, Roshan and Saif for sharing really thoughtful responses.

FUN IN THE SNOW!

We loved the opportunity to get out and play in the snow. Our gloves did need drying off afterwards...

LOGAN AND KWESI CLASS COLLECTIVE WORSHIP

Thank you to Logan and Kwesi for leading our Class Collective Worship. They chose to ask us to gather in front of a our school mission statement. We listened to scripture from Romans 12:6-8.
