As part of their preparation for Easter, Year 6 prayed the
Stations of the Cross at some of the City of London
Churches. They were joined by their friends from St.
Joachim's. As they walked between each church, they were
reminded of Jesus' great love for us and his suffering on
Good Friday. The children had time to reflect on each
Station and trace the footsteps of Jesus in His journey from
being condemned to death to His resurrection.
Reception and Key Stage 1 shared the Easter story showing a
greater understanding of their faith. In class the children
took part in a variety of activities learning about the
events of Holy Week reflecting on this important time.
Last Thursday, Selected year 6 pupils had the opportunity to
act out Shakespeare's "A Winter's Tale" at the Beckton Globe
Library. They participated in a competition called The
Battle of The Bards where they competed against other
schools in Newham. They were selected as a result of their
amazing acting skills. They were runners up in the
competition and we are very proud of them. We were
especially proud because they prepared their piece
independently during their lunch breaks.
On Friday 29th March Year Year participated in the ‘I am
Amazing’ Action Jackson workshop. They learned how to
think positive thoughts, manage their wellbeing and have a
growth mindset. Action Jackson inspired them to believe that
anything is possible and motivated them to always be the
best they can be!
Selected children from Year 5 along with their parents went
to St. Bonaventure’s to hear about The Brilliant Club
programme. The children learnt all about the universities
that they will be visiting and the studying / researching
that they will be undertaking. The children are all now
confident in understanding what it means to be a scholar.
On Monday the 18th of March Year 5 had a workshop about
Rivers and Canals. This linked to our geography unit this
term and also prepared us for our waterside workshop which
will be held at the Olympic park in the next few weeks.
Students from St Bon's very kindly came in to launch our
British Science Week. They delivered two very informative
presentations about the Solar System as well as the Human
digestive system. All pupils were very engaged throughout
the assembly. Pupils are now very excited to continue their
learning outside of school and investigate other 'journeys'
(British Science Week Theme 2019) in Science.
