We will miss you lots Mrs Cannell x

After working for 25 years at St Thomas More’s, the lovely Mrs Cannell deserved a fantastic send off on her last day. So Neptune Class put together a plan of action and made bunting, table confetti, dressed the tables and prepared a four course afternoon tea to make her last afternoon with us a very special one.

The children greeted her at the classroom door, each with a tulip and a loving message and then she revealed the vase that the children had secretly been working on during the week. Each child had drawn a flower on the vase and then personalised it with their name.

You will be missed lots Mrs Cannell and we can’t thank you enough for all the love and kindness you have shown to all the children and the families that you have met during your time at STMS. xx

Mars Class on board the Titanic

Once we had set sail on the Titanic we were keen to explore the different parts of the ship!

We were lucky enough to  start our tour in the dining rooms! There was a first class dining room and a third class dining room and we got to try out the food and facilities in both. Most of us preferred the first class dining area with its luxurious table settings and orchestra playing in the background.

After filling our bellies,  we made a visit to Titanic’s wireless room.  Here we pretended to be wireless radio operators and solve and create morse codes, just like the radio operators would have sent on the Titanic back in 1912.

Next we had a great time exploring the facilities on deck first.   There was a game called shuffleboard …

Some of us just took the time to relax on deck as the ship sailed across the Atlantic Ocean, or hang over the railings at the bow of the ship!

After all that exertion we decided we needed to refuel so we made our way down the ship’s corridor to the dining rooms.  There was a first class dining room and a third class dining room and luckily enough we got to try out the food and facilities in both. Most of us preferred the first class dining area with its luxurious table settings and orchestra playing in the background.

Titanic Day fun

On Friday 2nd February, KS1 children and staff came to school ready to board the Titanic!  We had lots of first class passengers, a few third class, some crew members and even a ship’s dog!

In the morning the children boarded the Titanic, with the first class passengers entering along a red carpet and being welcomed by Captain Smith, well three Captain Smiths!

 The third class passengers had to undergo a quick health inspection before boarding.

Once on board, all passengers and crew were welcomed by Captain Smith who told them all about the luxurious facilities that they could experience, including the Turkish Baths, the gymnasium, the dining rooms and the swimming pool and lots more.

It was then time to sail so as we left the dock we were waved off by lots of spectators. Bon voyage!

Neptune help to save Samson!

In Science we have been learning about the properties of different materials.  We have been reading a story called ‘Samson’s Titanic Adventure’ and in the story he unfortunately ends up in the icy North Atlantic Ocean!

We decided that we would investigate different materials and find out which would be best to make a raft to save Samson.

After much testing we came to the conclusion that wood would definitely be the best material for a raft.

Please note – no mice were harmed in the making of this investigation!!

What a manic few weeks it has been!!

We have been very busy in KS1, learning songs and words and dances for our nativity, ‘It’s Christmas!’.

It is a really fun nativity with lots of giggles but also reminds us of the real meaning of  Christmas.

This afternoon we had our dress rehearsal and peformed in front of the whole school and they all joined in with our final song too, which was great.  One more performance to our families on Monday and then we’ll be onto our next project ……..making items for the Christmas Fair.  Here’s a slideshow of some of the photos taken during this afternoon’s rehearsal.
