On Friday 10th October year five took part in a Greek Olympics art morning followed by Olympic activities in the afternoon during PE. In the morning children learnt how to show movement in their drawings and then they applied this to create various sporty drawings. In the afternoon their PE lesson was also inspired by the Greek Olympics.
Do join us for a school mass on Wednesday 15th October for the month of the Rosary. This mass will be led by the children in Year 6. Father Moses will be celebrating mass at 11am and we hope you can join us.
On Thursday 2nd October, Year 6 went to the Transport Museum and the Herbert Art Gallery to take part in workshops to do with the Coventry Blitz. Our first adventure was getting the bus into town. The other passengers were a bit surprised to see so many children on the bus!
At the Transport Museum we looked at some of the WWII vehicles and visited the Blitz Eperience. We read some letters from evacuees, wrote some postcards amd made our own evacuee labels.
In the afternoon, we went to the Herbert Art Gallery to learn more about the Blitz, the jobs people did and handled some artefacts. Keriane even got to sound the air-raid siren while Daniel had to put the incendiary bomb in a bucket of sand before it went off! We visited the very dark cellars that were air-raid shelters during the war. The Herbert has a really nice history of Coventry exhibit which we visited where we watched a film of the King's visit and sat in an Anderson shelter.
We also visited the special exhibit the Herbert has about the Great War and compared it to Word War 2. We especially enjoyed trying on the uniforms and practicing standing to attention.
It was a very interesting trip and everyone learnt a lot about why Coventry was bombed and what it was like for the people caught up in the Blitz.
