Year 3 had a very exciting visitor this morning and encountered some amazing predatory animals (some of which flew over our heads). From a fierce looking golden eagle to a cute hedgehog from Madagascar, we learnt lots of interesting facts to help us in our Predators topic.

This week year 4 have been learning how to make bread. We have designed a complete meal in a loaf fit for a roman soldier to take on their long journey. The children liked the cheese and tomato loaf but the quorn chicken with sweetcorn, onions and peppers proved to be the most popular. Great baking year 4.
Year 5 have been finding out about the phases of the moon this week and have used colour mixing to represent this in their artwork. Over the next month, encourage your child to look at the moon each night to see how it apparently changes shape!
In RE, we are learning about the Christian concept of Incarnation (God becoming a man in the form of Jesus Christ). We have been looking at Biblical texts from the Old Testament to understand more about the type of Saviour that the People of God were expecting to come and rescue them. Based on the writings of Prophets such as Isaiah and Micah, we wrote radio adverts with the theme of, ‘Messiah Wanted!’ Here is an example of what we came up with.
Do you think you have the features and good qualities to become the one and only holy Messiah? Are you the Saviour that will rescue the Israelites from slavery? If you think you’re the one the world needs, carry on reading!
The responsibilities and expectations are of a very high standard and you will need to be kind, peaceful, loving, powerful and courageous. You also need to have been born in Bethlehem. You need to be royally related to King David. You must be honest with your people and someone who holds might, power and strength so you can defeat the Romans. You must be fair, rewarding the good and punishing the wicked.
If you think you’re The One, get in touch straight away. Your people need you!
Today in RE, we were excited to use our brand new Rainbow Bibles which were gifted to us at the end of last year by Reverend John.
We used the contents page to help us as we looked up stories from the Old Testament, such as David and Goliath and The Great Flood. Some of us got really fast at finding not only the right book of the Bible, but also the correct chapter and verse!
