Space Poems
 
The children have been exploring space poems that rhyme. They had to work in partners to come up with a list of rhyming words, to help them for when they write their very own space poem. 
Take a look at some of their wonderful space poems. 
Image result for reflection time
The children from Year 1 visited St Matthew's Church for some quiet reflection time.
The children were greeted by Father Dominic who showed them the lovely Christmas Nativity and Crib and spoke to the children about the three kings and shepherds who visited Jesus after he was born. He talked about the importance of these visitors and the special celebration. It was lovely to see the decorations in our parish and have some time to reflect together.
