All Year 4 children in The Newman Catholic Collegiate have received their Easter packs this week, which have been created by our staff here at SMWCA. The packs include a variety of activities, the highlight being a wooden Romero cross, handmade by Mr Foster, our Design Technology Technician. We look forward to seeing your creations.
Mr Foster, our Design Technology Assistant, has worked incredibly hard over the Lockdown period to create 225 Half Term activity packs for families across all nine Collegiate Schools. Mr Foster weighed out ingredients for 1350 shortbread biscuits and handmade 225 wooden butterflies! This project was in collaboration with The Hubb Foundation and we hope to deliver more activity packs throughout the Easter holidays.
During the first week of December, we would usually be welcoming our Year 3 children from the Newman Catholic Collegiate. There is usually an opportunity to meet Santa and to participate in a Christmas performance by our talented Performing Arts students. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this couldn't happen this year, however our staff have pulled out all the stops to create personalised practical Christmas activities for children to complete either at home or in school. The activities included Christmas decoration making, a French Nativity set-up, the History of Christmas and much, much more!
Thank you to Miss Frodsham from St Peter's Catholic Academy for sending in these fantastic photos of your class completing the Christmas tasks.
We hope that our Year 3 children enjoyed using the packs and look forward to seeing more of your creations.
Year 5 & 6 International Schools Quiz
Year 5 and 6 children in our Collegiate schools have been busy completing the International Schools Quiz. Children faced questions on topics such as Foods of the World and Leaders of the World. Thank you to Miss Eardley for creating the quiz and to our Year 5 & 6 teachers for delivering the session. Keep a lookout for updates on the website for a league table of results. We will be inviting the top ten teams to St Margaret Ward in the Spring Term for the Final Round.
Year 4 Spelling Bee
On Thursday 5th November, Year 4 children in our Collegiate Schools were invited to participate in the Newman Catholic Collegiate Spelling Bee with Mrs Mills. The event took place remotely and children battled it out spelling out some really tricky spellings. Congratulations to our winners, St Mary's Catholic Academy. We look forward to hosting further Spelling Bee's in the Spring Term.
