The Reception children visited the sea life centre in Birmingham on Tuesday.
The children were very well behaved and loved looking at all the fish. The penguins were a particular favourite!
On Friday, Year 3 had a visit from the Freshwater theatre company to end our volcano and earthquake topic. We pretended to be volcanoes and earthquakes and then we visited different countries that have experienced volcanoes and earthquakes.
We really enjoyed bringing to life everything we had learnt in our topic.
Year 6 had a wonderful visit from Carlos for Latin American music afternoon on Tuesday. They leant to play a tune on the pan pipes and also played the finger drums.
Carlos showed us traditional Chilean musical instruments made from natural materials like bamboo drums, cactus rain makers and seed pod maracas! Everyone really enjoyed this taste of music from the Andes.
Year two had a DT day on Wednesday. Here they are practicing their DT skills ahead of the great car build! They did sawing, cutting, sticking and investigating materials and learned a lot!
In Reception we have been learning about Baptism. We did a role-play Baptism.

On the 3rd February the School council visited the St John Fisher Centre to celebrate the Romero Helps Rosie Fundraising. All of the schools from the Romero Partnership attended - Good Shepherd, St Patricks, SS Peter & Paul, St John Fisher, St Gregorys, Corpus Christi, Sacred Heart and Cardinal Wiseman.
We showed how much money each of the school councils raised during the fund raising we did before Christmas. This was shown during a film that student from Cardinal Wiseman made. The film showed what each individual school did to raise money and the total raised.
