Class Mass (Parents invited) 4JS
Class Liturgy (Parents invited) 2JC
We have been preparing for the Centenary Memorial of Armistice Day at school. Pupils have shared research accounts of persons who gave their lives during WW1. Mr. Gristwood led a special Commemorative Assembly Service in the school hall today after which Juniors observed two minutes’ silence. Classes laid poppy wreaths at the feet of our silent silhouette. On Monday, Google came to St Gregory’s to talk to KS2 students about their e-safety programme “Be Internet Legends”. During a 30 minutes assembly e-safety tips were shared and pupils were made aware of the importance of being kind internauts. Pupils were also shown the online game Interland, a game where children help their fellow Internauts, combat badly-behaved hackers, phishers, oversharers and bullies by practising the skills that they need to be confident online explorers. Our thanks go to Mr. Dias for organizing this great learning opportunity!
St. Augustine’s School Farm
Year 4 have had the wonderful and unique experience of visiting St. Augustine’s School Farm this week. The children were able to feed and pet the tame hens, pigs and sheep that are kept on site. These informative visits have helped to deepen the children’s descriptive writing vocabulary as we continue to study our class text, Charlotte’s Web. As an added bonus, Year 4 are now also able to tell the key differences between straw and hay. Ask them to explain! Our thanks go to St. Augustine’s School for hosting these visits, and especially Mr. Raffray, who shared his wealth of knowledge of the farm animals with all the children.
SCHOOL CLOSED TO PUPILS ON FRIDAY 23RD NOVEMBER & MONDAY 26TH NOVEMBER
