On Friday 8th March, Year 3 went on a school trip to Bristol Museum as part of their Ancient Egypt topic. They attended a workshop where they were able to handle some real artefacts and explored the Ancient Egypt exhibition. The children commented that they had a great day. They really enjoyed the workshop and learnt lots of new things about Ancient Egypt.
Year 4 visited the museum to see some original Leonardo Da Vinci drawings and also had a masterclass on how to be an art critic!
This weeks stars from our Celebration Assembly
We had great fun celebrating World Book Day at St Bernard's. We got dressed up as characters from our favourite book and we had a visit and workshop with a real author!
This term, Year 1 have been finding out about what happened in the Great Fire of London. On the last day of term, to celebrate we had a ‘17th Century school day’ look at how much fun we had!
Year 1 have been reading 'Up Sudden Hill' this term and have been thinking about all the things that a cardboard box can be turned into - look at all the things we made!
Year 1 have been learning about how the Chinese celebrate New Year and making lots of things to decorate the classroom.
We had a special visitor into school this afternoon. Darren Jones, the Member of Parliament for Bristol North West, came to talk to us about what he does in Parliament and how he helps our community. The children had lots of questions for him, including what we can do to help him and has he met the Queen!
Year 5 have been making some beautiful handmade Christmas cards. The Christmas stars are all hand sewn - the children are very proud of their achievements!
Year 4 have been learning about Anglo-Saxon buildings and art.
This year Clifton Diocese is launching a Year full of Hope. Our Chaplaincy Team at St Bernard’s organised a Mammoth Mission Afternoon! The children are all wearing something bright with their uniform to support CAFOD’s ‘Brighten up Harvest’ initiative and have been taking part in fun activities this afternoon, organised by the chaplaincy team. After school today, there will be bright nail painting, a cake sale supporting MacMillan Cancer, a foodbank collection for our local Foodbank and a special Harvest performance from our School Council and Chaplaincy Team! We hugely appreciate all of your support and hope that you are able to join us.
Year 4 had great fun this week making stencils and learning about Banksy! They have been looking at protest art as part of their art topic work. The children were taught how to use the spray paint safely and were very responsible and grown up when doing the activity, Mr Fisher was very proud! Great work Year 4!
Big Me Week The children all looked fantastic in their work outfits today! A BIG thank you to all the parents and carers who helped create such fantastic costumes. All the money raised will go to ActionAid to help children all over the world to receive an education and aspire to achieve more.
On Tuesday, Year 6 had a fulfilling and fun time at the Life Skills event at the Create Centre. The exhibits are kept top secret so we couldn’t take photos inside!
Year 4 certainly rocked our assembly this morning with their ukulele performance of 'we will rock you' and some of their own songs too!
Year 3 enjoying Forest School
Spring Disco The PTA would like to thank the parents and members of staff that gave up their valuable time yesterday to help at the spring disco. It was a great evening! Our children had a most fabulous time and we raised an amazing £480 for our school! This will go towards our Year 6 leavers gift and donation to their end of school party, and will welcome all our new children, starting in September, with a St Bernard's bookbag. Thank you to everyone who came along and boogied with us (and a special mention to Year 5 - who knew they were such fabulous dancers! And the Mum and Dad who joined the kids on the dancefloor for 'All you need is love').
Year 1 have been following an online drawing tutorial to learn how to draw owls. They took a lot of time, care and attention and produced some amazing artworks! Here is the link to the tutorial we used if you would like to have a go at home: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJZF9Nka-78
