Together we love, live and learn.

Year 4

Year 4 Residential

Year 4 loved their stay at the Malvern Outdoors centre. We got to try out exciting activities such as zipwire, archery and climbing! The children represented the school really well and should all be extremely proud of themselves. We hope that the wonderful memories that they made will stay with them well into the future.

In our RE lessons, we have been learning all about Jesus' Jewish upbringing. We found out that he went to a Jewish Temple, prayed using the words of the 'Shema' and asked the Jewish teachers questions to further develop and understand his faith. We enjoyed looking at some different Jewish artefacts and comparing them to ones used by Christians in Church.
