Prep 7: Week 10
Date: 28th Jun 2020 @ 7:11pm
Class Blog Week Beginning 22nd June
We have been impressed yet again by the attitude and hard work of our Prep 7 girls.
Our special topic this week was, 'The Rainforest', and Olivia K sent us a picture she produced. You will find it below. Ananya did some research on Deforestation and she designed and created a tri-fold leaflet on the subject. This and a picture by Ananya are below.
In RE this week, as part of the topic, “Called to Serve”, we have been learning about vocations and why some people are called to the priesthood. Fr David Charters, who was formally the parish priest at St Vincent's in Altrincham, recorded some very insightful videos for us. He really helped to enhance our understanding of this topic. Fr David is currently based in New York as Secretary at the Permanent Observer Mission of the Holy See to the United Nations. Previously he worked at the Apostolic Nunciature in the Central African Republic.
We sent him a special message to thank him for taking the time to record the videos for us. See below for the photo of our message.
Finally, last week we showed you some Orienteering work produced by Alisha at home. This week, Mrs Fish and Mrs Mullan were delighted to receive an email from Alisha’s mum explaining how much the whole family had enjoyed the Orienteering task. Alisha’s parents are both doctors and have been working extremely hard throughout the time of COVID-19. Mrs Suresh says:
“I just wanted to share our experience re the orienteering exercise that Alisha planned for us on Sunday. I was working nights and reluctantly took part as I was tired but was actually recharged after the activity ..... It is after a long time that we have involved ourselves in something like a joint outside fun activity during this lock down, as work has still kept us very busy.
“I have attached few photographs [see below] of the secret code items that she used with her 20 clues. All hand made and appeared so real for example the paper petal in the artificial rose which was planted into the red rose bush, the cardboard inside the blue bin, the Victoria plum made of blue tac and painted which was stuck on to the plum tree which is currently laden with similar sized green produce etc.
“Thank you so much for encouraging the children to bring out their best and planning such thought provoking activities. Your hard work is very much appreciated.”
Alisha has worked so hard throughout her absence from school and we are thrilled that the whole family has benefited from the effort she has put in.
