Yesterday during our Creative topic ‘Somewhere to settle’, the Year 4 children applied their knowledge of maps to locate different types of land use in Glasgow. The children were given a map of Glasgow and Google Maps on their tablets to help them locate different land uses such as retail, industrial, agricultural, housing, leisure and business. Year 4 really enjoyed using their maps and finding different areas of Glasgow and what they were used for. Fantastic work.
Year 4 had a fun morning in our Numeracy and Literacy lesson today.
In Literacy, our new class book is ‘How to train your dragon’ by Cressida Cowell. The children’s task was to find words in the book they were uncertain of and find their meaning in the dictionary. As a team, they had to think of sentences they could write using the word they had researched.
In Numeracy, we have been focussing on Multiplication and Division. To reinforce our learning on factors, the children played a factor game with a partner. This was great fun and it allowed the children to recap their learning and challenge others. Well done, Year 4.
As part of Year 4’s Science topic on the human digestive system, the children had fun creating a body and labelling the parts. The children understood what the parts of the digestive system are called and their functions. Well done, Year 4.
Thank you to all the school community who donated food for our collection this Autumn term. The Mini Vinnies have been collecting all the food and making a note of the items donated from each class. The winning class was Year 3 with 52 items donated who will now receive an extra break in the final week of term. Well done! The Mini Vinnies met Frances on Friday morning who collects food for Stanley Food Bank. We brought all the food over to Church where we helped Frances count and move the food into her car to drop off. This will make a real difference to lots of families this Christmas.
Well, that’s a wrap on our Christmas Celebration Concert 2017. Well done to all the children, who have represented our school so beautifully today, and have worked their socks off over the past few weeks in order to prepare our Advent concert for friends, families and parish alike.
Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate Advent with us. Sacred Heart, as a staff, hope that you have enjoyed the event, which some Governors and parents have kindly called our best concert yet. A huge thank you to Miss Cook for all her hard work with the graphics, and congratulations are due to every single child for braving the season’s coughs and sneezes to perform with their hearts and souls.
The children of Y1 performed wonderfully as our Nativity characters and our Y5/6 soloists did an excellent job. What fantastic voices!
Well done everyone. Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Absolutely massive thank you to the two parents that came to help us plant some more of our trees today, even in the pouring rain. Katie (REC), Grace (REC) and Daisy (Little Hearts) have each been given 5 dojos for their parents hard work. Thanks again to everyone that has been involved, whether that was by digging holes or my donating bulbs. It’s great to have such a supportive family community.
Lots of thanks,
Year 4 had their first liturgy all about ‘People’. We gathered together to celebrate the special people in our lives and remembered how we are all part of God’s family. The children worked very hard to prepare this liturgy and had a lot of fun choosing the hymns they thought we best! Well done, Year 4!
This week, we have been inspired by the children’s favourite ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.’

Today was our eco council plant-a-thon! We were prepared with our forks and trowels to tackle the soil and grass to make way for our new trees.
We had 3 very helpful and enthusiastic volunteers who brought their own tools to help us complete our mission.
Although we planted a lot of the trees, we still have lots left! Since we had so much fun today, Mr Naughton said it would be great if we could do it again to see if we can plant all of the trees that we have! Our parent helpers were sent by Oskar (rec), Eliza (Y2), Matthew O (Y2) and Kate (Y5), who have each been awarded 5 dojo points!
Our next plant-a-thon will be held next Thursday 23rd November from 11am. Please come and help!
