As always,

Thank you for your continued support.


Thank you to the children of 4D for fully taking part in World Book Day 2021 today. We created our own book covers and shared our favourite books πŸ™‚

 

Last week was Children’s Mental Health week. In 4D we learnt how to improve our wellbeing. The theme this year was “Express Yourself”. 4D did that through the medium of portraits! Have a look πŸ™‚

Express Yourself Portraits


This week the children have been busy learning a new computing skill! We used the app IPICCY and the children were able to take themselves back in time to the Roman Empire! πŸ™‚ Have a look! Well done 4D.

Computing


In maths 4D had a go at the ancient Chinese puzzle – Tangrams. They constructed their own tangram using exact measurements and solved some puzzles using all of the 7 2D shapes.

Tangrams


We are coming to an end of our Science topic “Electricity”. The children have learnt so much and proved themselves to be young scientists in the making πŸ™‚ Today we were focussing on the history of electricity. Children completed timelines, information texts and PowerPoints. You can see some examples of their fantastic work on the document below. Well done 4D. We are very proud of you.

The History of Electricity


To celebrate St. Bridget’s Day yesterday, the 1st February, the children made St. Bridget’s day crosses. See some examples of their excellent work on the document below.

O God, you give us joy, through the power of the intercession of BlessedΒ Bridget. Graciously grant that we may be assisted by her merits and her example.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

St. Bridget’s Day


As Sunday was Racial Justice Sunday we had a whole class assembly based on the importance of equality and fairness for all. The children then wrote their own prayers and designed logos to promote Racial Justice. Here are some examples of their beautiful prayers.

As you know, due to the current situation children have been completing work at home. The platform we at Blessed Dominic are using is Google Classroom. I have been so impressed with the quality of all the work submitted by 4D. Well done boys and girls- you are a credit to yourselves and your families. Across all curriculum subjects work is being submitted to a high standard. Our science topic this term is “Electricity”. The children have worked hard to make an electrical circuit at home. I hope you appreciate their fantastic work as much as I do. Click on the word document below.
