Fundraising for CAFOD 
As part of our FAITH IN ACTION award, we wanted to support those around our world who are poor or sick. We watched the CAFOD harvest assembly and decided to do some fundraising. CAFOD stands for Catholic Agency for Overseas Development and is currently supporting communities in our world who are suffering because of the Coronavirus. We are collecting loose change and are trying to fill a large container with coins. We each decorated a jam jar which we will use as a money pot to collect coins. £3 will buy facemasks for those in poor countries. Extra money will buy hand sanistizer or taps for clean water. Thank you to our parents, other family members and friends who have contributed to the fund.

Monday 16th November marked the beginning of Anti-Bullying week and Year 6 wore odd socks to school. Odd Socks Day was started by the Anti-Bullying Alliance which is a group of organisations, charities and individuals who work together to try and stop bullying. During the week the children thought about what makes someone special and unique, and reflected on how we can celebrate our differences. 
The Day of the Dead is a feast that is celebrated in Mexico and the Americas. Families come together to celebrate and remember ancestors and loved ones who have passed away, and although it is a time for people to reflect and remember, it's also an explosion of colour and celebration. People build altars beautifully decorated with pictures of family members who have died. There are parades and parties, and people sing and dance often wearing brightly coloured costumes or skull masks. We created our own colourful masks decorated with patterns, beads and sequins.

Master Class 
On 24th January, pupils and staff from Clifton High school visited our classroom to lead a Master Class. They had come to share their knowledge of Science and Maths and to teach us a bit about Space. 
The title of the class was "Measuring the Universe" and using our measuring skills we worked out the size and weight of the earth. 
We enjoyed learning about shadows and different ways of measuring distances. 
Kite Making 
We have been helping our buddies to make Kites. 
First we designed the kites, then we copied the designs onto some parachute material. We helped our buddies to colour in the picture and decorate the kite. 
We are going to add some sticks to make a frame and attach some string and a tail. 
We are hoping for a good windy day so we can take our kites onto the school field and help our buddies to fly them. 
In May we led the annual May procession. We brought flowers into school to place around the statue of Mary and we made our own Rosary beads. 
As part of our work on Other Faiths, we found out the Islam religion and we took part in a "Muslim workshop". Rubina led an assembly and told us that Muslims pray 5 times everyday. She showed us different prayer positions and explained the symbolism behind each one.

Well done to all those who have achieved their Bikeability award. The Level 2 training developed skills for cycling on single-lane roads with simple junctions and moderate traffic and included the key functions for safe and responsible cycling.
