It was lovely to see so many of you at the meeting regarding First Holy Communion. Just to confirm,
– confessions will be held in school on Tuesday 22 May.
– all children are to attend a session with Fr Patrick on Wednesday 23 May at 5p.m. in the Cenacle.
– First Holy Communion will take place at the 10a.m. Mass on Sunday 3 June.
I would like to reiterate that, in order for your child to receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion,
– your child must be baptised in the Catholic Church.
– a copy of the certificate of baptism must have been given to Mrs Bernto.
– your child must have received the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
– your child must be a regular attendee at Mass.
It is assumed that the children of those parents who did not attend the meeting on Monday and did not contact Mrs Bernto beforehand have decided that they will not be seeking the Sacrament of Holy Communion for their son/daughter. Please make an appointment to see Mrs Bernto and to go through the information shared at the meeting should this not be the case.
When Monty came to visit
This week, Years 3 and 4 had a little visitor, Monty, Mrs B’s dog. He came to say hello and help us with our literacy work. We learnt about his appearance, where he lives, what he eats and his daily routine. All the information we gathered will help us to write a our non-chronological report on Monty this week, preparing us to independently write our own non-chronological about a dragon, next week.
With thanks and all kind regards,
Sid and Eric.
(AKA Mrs Bernto and Miss Talbot)

Not too many photos this week unfortunately, as we have been working hard on our literacy and maths. The children have come up with some lovely ideas for their ‘Escape from Pompeii’ Historical narrative.
Suddenly, a huge wave of ash and dust appeared, racing towards the city like a Tsunami.Worried and upset, Icarus and Janeria questioned this huge wave rising above the city.
'Suddenly, the volcanoes mouth burst open and roared like a hundred different types of lions. the flames looked like deadly shooting stars!'

Burning bursting lava.
Crackling, smoking slowly
As big as an elephant can be.
Fiery, flowing flames.
There was no spellings or learn its given out this week due to the print not working. As part of our topic, we are creating our own volcanoes to erupt. If children could bring a small, empty plastic bottle into school, that would be very much appreciated.

“I also forgot to tell you that the only way to get these pineapples is to use the tickle fish, so we can tickle them off!”
For our morning tasks we have been describing pictures using adverbs, adjectives and rhyme. The children have been very imaginative!
“Into the icy snow,
The people shouting no!
It’s cold here,
we should camp here.
So they put up their enormous tent,
Then off they sent
Someone to get food,
But it doesn’t change their mood!”
