Today Year Four enjoyed going to sing Christmas carols with the residents of Laurel Bank Care Home in Lancaster. We were made to feel very welcome and the children sang their hearts out. Their enthusiasm and joy was much appreciated by all. Well done and thank you, Year Four.
Year 4 enjoyed a visit to The Cathedral this week to help them grow in their understanding of the Catholic belief of Jesus' presence in the Blessed Sacrament.
In RE this week, Year 4 have been learning about the significance of the Eucharist for Catholics. This was the start of our learning for the 'Year of the Eucharist' and the children were reminded of the link between Jesus' last supper and the Mass.
We started our learning about fables this week and the children made some great suggestions about the moral of 'The Hare and the Tortoise'. If you can, listen to some fables on the BBC radio website below and discuss the morals in the stories.
