In assembly this week Mrs Brocklesby highlighted the importance of our focus virtues and values using two bible stories. Through the story of ‘The Boy Jesus at the Temple’ the children considered how, like Jesus, we can be curious about our faith and the faith of those around us. Through the story of ‘The Good Samaritan’ the children shared their thoughts on how we can actively live out our faith by helping and supporting others.
On Wednesday, Miss Greenway and I were very excited to meet our new School Council. After discussing the importance of the role, we set them the task of gathering opinions and ideas from their classes about the following questions:
‘What do you like about Our Lady of Mount Carmel?’ and ‘What do you think would make it even better?’
We are looking forward to hearing their findings in a few weeks’ time and using their ideas as a basis for a School Council run improvement project.
During this week, Mrs Barratt (Maths Co-Ordinator) and I have been visiting classrooms to enjoy finding out about all of the different types of maths-based problem solving activities the children have been involved in. We were so impressed by how well the children were working together, applying their maths knowledge and using a wide range of strategies and resources independently to solve their number challenges!
We were also visited by Baileys Catering this week who encouraged the children to try their taste test challenge featuring a wide variety of delicious tomatoes, including organic varieties, and give their opinions about which type they enjoyed the most!
Enjoy your weekends!
