Week beginning 10th October
This week, we have been celebrating hero’s who have inspired us thoughtful history. Our class learned all about the life of Mary Seacole, who learned to say no and stand up for women and women of black skin. She was a heroic nurse who helped the soldiers of the Crimean War using her own money and knowledge and she has shown us the resilience that we all need to show in our own work and how to stand up for what is right and each other.
We we also read the stories of Rosa Parks and Nelson Mandela to make sure that we are emceeing those who fought for equal rights.
To celebrate music, we spent lots of time learning ‘Lean on Me’ to sing as a school as feel that this really does show the St Bernard’s Way and how we should live our lives as Jesus would have wanted.
Next week, we are visiting the library as part of our celebration - please keep a lookout!
As part of our Science lesson this week, we explored the microhabitats of mini-beasts in our school’s forest area. We focused on looking under logs and fallen leaves as our two main microhabitats in the first and discover lots of mini-beasts including worms, snails, slugs, beetles and woodlouse. We talked about why the mini-beasts are suited to the heir habitats and how they keep them safe from predators. We then recorded our findings in our books when we returned to class. Keilan was very brave in helping the moth we discover enter back into its habitat. See if you can spot the moth - it is tricky because we noticed that it camouflages itself to hide from predators.
