Dear children, staff, parents and governors of St. Gregory’s school,
I would just like to say thank you to you all for the wonderful send off you gave me for my retirement.
I was really touched by all of the special things you did for me, especially the video of your messages, your performance of the hymn to St. Gregory, the specially made book of your drawings and messages, your fantastic singing in our Christmas carol concert, the award you set up in my name and the whole school photograph. Thank you too for your generous gifts and the beautiful cards I received and for everything else!
I don’t know how you managed to keep everything a secret. It was absolutely amazing and I will never forget you all and the love and kindness you have shown me. I feel so blessed to have been a part of such a caring and outstanding school for so many years and to have had the opportunity to have taught so many children in that time.
You will always be in my thoughts and I wish you all, the best of everything for the future. I will miss you all.
Love and best wishes
Miss Carrahar x
Christmas jumper day
We really enjoyed taking part in the nativity and loved wearing our costumes.
We all had our lovely party clothes on, it was very exciting to see everyone’s outfits.
Then we went into the hall with year 1 and 2. We had lots of fun dancing and playing games.
After play time we had some yummy party food.
We were very lucky to get a surprise visit from Santa and he gave us all a present!
We had lots of fun making a Santa or reindeer hand print Christmas card. As well as creating our repeating pattern calendars.
Our calendar photos.
Christmas role play
Year 3 really enjoyed making clay Volcanoes! Our next step is to create the bubbling lava in our Science lesson. Videos and pictures of this to come.
We spent the afternoon training how to be an elf, it was so much fun. Then we got to meet Santa Claus!
In year 4, we have been learning about states of matter. Today we investigated gasses. We learned about how carbon dioxide was discovered by Joseph Priestly and how it is used to make fizzy drinks and fire extinguishers!
We wanted to discover which fizzy drink was the fizziest out of a selection of 4. To do this we weighed the drinks when they were fizzy, then we shook them 100 times until they were flat. After that, we weighed them again and worked out the difference in weight.
We found out that the cherryade was the fizziest as it had lost the most weight!
Thank you to Year 6 and Mrs Wilson for putting together a very good, and thought provoking assembly.
