Bishop Visit

On Friday Bishop Mark arrived. First thing in the morning  the Bishop had a nurture breakfast in Year 3. After  he visited each class our class question was what does it feel like to be a bishop?

His answer was really good.

We learnt about poetry and we had a go at doing our own poem, I did my own poem. I did the tyger tyger and it took me a very very long time. What is your favourite poem?

50th Celebrations

Wow! What a busy week we have ending with a lovely day on Friday.  I was very proud of year 4, its not easy performing in front of a large audience but they rose to the challenge brilliantly. Their confidence has grown significantly over the past year and this was born out today. They sung well and looked fabulous. Well done.

50th Anniversary Celebrations

The PTFA supplied cream teas, cake & refreshments for guests during our 50th Anniversary Celebrations. These were appreciated by all whilst they were admiring the displays around the school . It showed the excellent school community spirit we have at St. Catherine’s  with parents/carers, staff and visitors all coming together to make it such a special event.

Starting swiming

We started swimming on the 7th of June. We split into two groups and got changed.Then one group did P.E and another started swimming. We had about ten minutes each. While swimming we practiced our front stroke also we had a bit of free play. We had to practice an emergency getting out at the horn and two people went and told the office and year 2.

In the beginning of the summer term we entered a poetry competition. It was mind blowing that we were two of the children who won because there were a lot of people that entered it.

Year 6 students of St. Catherine’s Roman Catholic Primary School had a walk around their playground ideally trying to hear and watch nature around them. After their walk,  they went back into their classroom and thought about something they had seen or heard and based a poem around that. Joshua chose Colmer’s Hill because it is such an iconic Bridport landmark. Mia chose a dandelion and a fossil because they are linked by time.

We are very pleased with the books we won. The title of the book is “Beyond the Bright Sea”.
