Come and SeeImage result for religion

We have been continuing the 'called' topic during our Come and See sessions.  Year 4 have been learning about what happens during the Sacrament of Confirmation.  First, we have created booklets to explain the different signs and symbols.   Next, we have written prayers asking the Holy Spirit to help us when we need a friend .  Then, we listened to 'Christ be our light' and explored the meaning of the song and discussed how this will help us in our daily lives.

This week we have had a special visitor in Year 4.  Mrs Buckley from the hearing service came in to talk to us about sound and hearing.  She explained her job and why some people may need hearing aids.  Mrs Buckley demonstrated how hearing aid works and showed us a model of the inner ear. 

All the children did find it very funny when Mrs Buckley called me 'Mrs Cockerel' Image result for cockerel  by mistake.  I quite like my new name smiley



All the children loved taking part in the anti-bullying assembly and I was so proud of them all for standing up and presenting their work.
