UCI 2019 Road World Championships
Year 6 and Year 4 were invited to watch the start of the Junior Women's Race which started at the Doncaster Dome.
It was an early start, having to meet up at the Dome at 7.00 am, but it was well worth it. We had a front row view of the start of the Race as well as seeing all the riders beforehand when they were registering.
COME ON GREAT BRITAIN!
We enjoyed a brilliant day at Austerfield Study Centre learning all about evolution and adaptation.
We particularly loved holding the exotic animals and looking at how they have adapted to their habitat.
The Sacrament of Holy Orders
Thursday 6 November 2019
Fr. Darren talked to us about his Ordination and how he became a priest. We enjoyed hearing all about his ‘journey’ to the priesthood. The priesthood is one of the three holy orders of the Catholic Church, comprising ordained priests or presbyters. The other two orders are the bishops and the deacons.

We Will Remember Them
13 November 2019
James Sunderland came into School to talk to us about Judaism, particularly the festivals of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
We all tried the food for the celebration of Rosh Hashanah 'Sweet New Year'
We tried on the Kippur (Skull Cap).
In the Jewish faith the head has to be covered for prayer.
We learnt about the Shofar, the ram's horn. It was surprisingly light.
As part of our topic on Natural Disasters and as part of our English work, we have written our own stories based on the picture book Flood by Alvaro F Villa.
We shared our finished stories with our Reception class buddies. They loved discussing the pictures and listening to the Year 6 pupil's stories.

We enjoyed a Diverse World workshop with Richard.
We focused on extreme habitats around the world and the diversity within these habitats.
The pupils enjoyed lots of drama activities.
