Year 6 at the ‘Easter Experience’

Yesterday, Year 6 went to All Souls’ Church in Langham Place for the ‘Easter Experience’. They investigated various different simulated crime scenes, with evidence from the Easter story, to try and work out who might have been responsible for the death of Jesus. They enjoyed the creative and imaginative approach to the story, and thinking about it from a legal perspective.

Year 6 Trip to Wadham College, Oxford

On Monday, Year 6 visited Wadham College in Oxford. They met students, toured the college and ate their lunch in a real life student refectory! Afterwards, they toured the city of Oxford, learning about the history of the city and some of the authors who had lived and studied there. Do you recognise the lamppost and know which famous series of books it inspired?

It was a great experience for the children, enabling them to think about their own futures in a new way.

F1 – Unleavened Bread Making

Yesterday in F1, the children learnt about the story of the Last Supper and made unleavened bread to share with each other. They used flour, butter, oil, eggs, honey and salt to make their bread, but no yeast. They waited while it cooked in the oven and then ate it round a table together, just like Jesus and his disciples did at the Last Supper.

School in the snow!

We are open as usual, and enjoying the snow at St Mary’s. This morning, school looks like this:

Yesterday, children had lots of fun exploring the snow!

F2 Thankfulness Prayers

F2 have been using playdough to make the things they are thankful for, as part of our weekly class worship. Some children made happy faces to show their thankfulness for being happy, and some made bracelets for their mums to show they are thankful for them. They used these to help them pray and reflect.

 

Year 4 Visit to Holy Trinity Church

On Thursday, Year 4 visited Holy Trinity church in Sloane Square. They had been learning about the Trinity in RE last term, and so they were able to look for and explore symbols of the Trinity in this church. The Rector of Holy Trinity church gave the children a wonderful tour (including being able to go up into the pulpit) and helped them to find all the different symbols around the church. The children also learnt about the Eucharist (Holy Communion), and saw the special silver patten and chalice used at the church. One child said ‘this is wonderful, I feel holy just being here.’ Miss Norman used to work at Holy Trinity, so there is a special link between our schools. On the way, we even saw horses from Buckingham Palace!
