It’s morning assembly time and there is a phone call from a very upset billy goat. A nasty troll is hiding under the bridge and he can’t get over the river. Could St Vincent’s help out? Of course we could … with a bit of help from some dads and grandads who were in for the day.
We have some talented engineers – take a look:
This year we spent the day at the Marine Lake at Weston-Super-Mare. We swam and paddled, dug holes and built sandcastles, played cricket and football and even practised writing in the sand. After lunch we went crabbing with the leftover chicken from our sandwiches. Some very clever mums caught some limpets to use as extra bait, which helped us to catch an enormous crab! We even buried a child or two. A great day out!
This was a wonderful day with dance, float making and a themed lunch menu. In the afternoon all the floats set out on an amazing carnival procession up to Heartlands Academy. With World Cup spirit the children cheered the teams of footballers made up of parents, children and staff. The children beat the staff 1-0 but the parents managed to hold them to a 0-0 draw. Good fun!
Come and have a look at our displays in the KS1 entrance and the KS2 area. You can see the work we have been doing on all the major world faiths. Each class visited a place of worship and investigated the beliefs and traditions , symbols and rituals of each faith. Particular thanks to our Muslim children who shared their own faith knowledge this week.
Year 3 and 4 have led our Holy Week prayer services this year. They used what they learned in their Light theme to create a beautiful series of shadow films to tell the story of Jesus’ final journey to Calvary.
