Ahead of our Music Evening on 21st May, below are the tracks and lyrics for Year 4 and 5’s choral singing performance! This will showcase the hard work they have been putting in with Mr Davis, learning traditional hymns and mass parts. Use this page as a resource to practice that fantastic singing of yours!

Ave Maria

For Mary Mother

Lyrics to follow along:

It was wonderful this morning to celebrate Mass in our church with Father David, parents, carers and parishioners. The children who took part with readings, prayers and poetry were confident, thoughtful and precise and, as for the singing, it was glorious, powerful and brought joy to our hearts.

Year 5 prepared a wonderful liturgy to remember the last supper. They were natural performers and marked the occasion beautifully. They should be very proud!

This week is the 30th Anniversary of British Science Week, so the theme this year is Time!

We got off to a super start this morning with our Science Ambassadors leading a whole school assembly. We began with learnig a little about our Science saint – At. Albert the Great, and read a prayer that last year’s ambassadors wrote. They shared the theme and lots of links to our own lifes and science that we can make with science. They launched the Poster competition and ran the lunch-time ‘Gadget Shop’ which will run Mon-Thursday this week, until all stock is sold. Prices range from 50p to £2. Itemised lists with prices are posted around the school.

Phew, and it’s only Day 1.

St Albert the Great

We’ve had a wonderful but very busy day at BRW.  We welcomed Bemma Akyeampong, author of the Ayuda stories – set in Guinea-Bissau, all about a sea turtle’s adventures and struggles against pollution. She retold her stories to all the children and they had chance to think about what they could do to look after our wonderful world.

We also had the introduction of our wonderful new furniture to spruce up our reading corners in every classroom. This will really help to promote the joy of reading, learning new vocabulary and being inspired to be authors ourselves.

As the photographs show, the reading cafe was immensely popular and the cakes didn’t last long! Thank you everyone for attending and for the cake donations.

Thank you to the Library Leaders for getting our exciting week off to a great start. They told us about Saint Jerome who was asked to translate the Bible so that more people could know God’s word.  He did such a good job that his translation was used for more than 1,000 years.

Don’t forget that if you want to be in with a chance of winning a book, return your Scavenger Hunt sheets by Thursday.  Good Luck!

Year 5 used their knowledge of World War 2 rationing to make their very own Woolton Pies! This DT lesson included the children developing their skills in peeling and chopping as well as using equipment safely and food hygiene. Take a look at their wonderful creations…

Last week Year 5 went to walk around the local area as part of their history topic Local Area A453. The children enjoyed making observations on how the introduction of the A453 may have impacted life in Clifton.

On Tuesday 28th November, Children in Year 1 and Year 5 took part in #Google #BeInternetLegends Day. Year 1 learnt about being kind online and sharing kindness through ‘Kind Kingdom’. Year 5 completed their quest through ‘Mindful Mountain’ answering questions about what we should and shouldn’t share online and learnt about our ‘Digital Footprints’. As an added bonus, our Digital Leaders from all year groups have now been tasked with the challenge of creating their own Legends at home!

There are further family and individual activities, along with support and advice for parents here.
