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.

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 6 have been learning about Holy Week in their RE topic ‘Death and New Life’. They recalled the events of the ‘Greatest Week in History’ using playdough to create their own story map, which they’ll use to support writing their assessments. Plasti-scene was a fun and collaborative way to recall the events learnt and made us focus on the key signs and symbols. Take a look at our finished pieces!

Year 6 had an incredible time at The Briars! This year, they enjoyed being Agents of Love, where they had to show constant love, get closer to God and to do what is right and just. Through liturgies, reflections, Mass and team work, all of Year 6 graduated! Our time at the Briars consisted of lots of fun, including; a cold walk through Crich, a (very loud) disco, fun games and tuck shop. Speaking of food, Year 6 couldn’t get enough of the delicious food served at the Briars! They helped serve others, met new friends from another school, and they particularly enjoyed learning some new prayers. Take a look at all of the fun we had…
