Thank you to all the parents who came into school for our Africa Celebration, especially those who helped with workshops and cooked delicious dishes to share. It was lovely to see the pride children took in sharing their cultures with their friends and teachers.
Some of the children blogged their work. Have a look here:
What an amazing afternoon! The children presented their learning from their multi-faith study last week in a huge exhibition in the school hall. They brought their building models and displayed their writing and paintings. They made posters and powerpoints. A group from each class came to answer questions and talk to visitors about their work. A wonderful way to share their knowledge. Thank you to everyone who came and especially the parents who cooked some favourite dishes to share.
Year 3 and 4 learning about the Presentation Sisters from Sister Eleanor and Sister Catherine. Is vocation an every day thing? How do you recognise God,s voice?
Fantastic questions from Year 4. What would your answers be?
Catherine a volunteer from the Columbans came to speak to Year 1 and Year 2 a and Year 5 about welcoming others and living the Gospel Values.
Thank you to everyone who has supported the ReachOut Project over the last two years. It was great to look back and remember the highlights at the coffee morning. Thank you to Mrs Halloran for all her hard word and dedication in harnessing the community spirit in Nechells!
Year 3 and 4 read Charlotte’s Web in class. After reading all about life on a farm, they went to visit Ashend farm and then decided to raise money for a community which did not have enough to eat. They supported CAFOD World Gifts to buy some fish and some chickens. Here they are opening the cards from CAFOD.
Thank you to our Year 5 class for a really powerful assembly all about the life and achievements of Equiano Olaudah. Their presentation was stunning, leaving the whole hall appalled by the horrors of slavery but also with a strong sense of optimism about how each one of us can be a force for good in the world.
