The Good Shepherd

Catholic Primary School

“I am the Good Shepherd; I know my own and my own know me”. John 10:14"

Year 6 - St Stephen

H&F Summer Football Tournament 2021

The boys’ and girls’ football teams took part in the annual summer football tournament at Ravenscourt Park. They competed against seven other schools in several exciting matches. The teams were a mix of year five and six footballers. 
The girls’ team- captained by Gabrielle- won one and drew two group games. They qualified for the knock-out stages and played St.Stephen’s in the semi-final, narrowly losing 0-1. They finished joint third overall.
The boys also qualified for the knock-out stages after finishing second in their group. They won their semi-final against Brackenbury after the game went to a penalty shoot-out. Julian saved twice to ensure our victory. They faced St.Stephen’s in the final. A very close game ended 1-1. It went to sudden death penalties and Julian saved the day again with a great diving save, winning the match and crowning the boys’ team champions! 
The teamwork and support for one another on both teams during the tournament was great to see.

Sports Day 2021

We managed to avoid the rain and have some fun at Sports Day 2021!

Another busy day here at PGL! 
Today’s activities included Survivor, Archery, Giant Swing and Zip Wire. We also had a visit from Mrs Lavelle who brought your letters and packages ~ thank you! 
We are all having a wonderful time and can’t wait for tomorrow’s activities. 
More updates tomorrow. 

Good evening parents!
We have had our first day of activities here at PGL and have absolutely enjoyed every second! We encouraged one another to face our fears and we are all very proud of ourselves. 
Today’s activities included Sensory Trail, Rock Climbing, Orienteering and Vertical Challenge. 
We are currently waiting to start our evening activity: Splash!

We miss you but we are ALL very happy to be here. 
Stay tuned for more updates tomorrow. 

We have arrived! 
It was a beautiful evening here at PGL so we spent most of it outside playing games and enjoying Sports Night. We all agree that the food here is amazing and we can’t wait for breakfast! 
Our teacher is hoping we go to sleep soon but we’re not quite ready yet!!!
More updates tomorrow evening. 

Club 144 Summer Meeting

What secret things were they up to this time?
Clue: There was lots of adding up of decimals and it was something to do with the European Championships...

We had to code Sphero to escape the monster by following the path. There was a wild river to cross, too. One group came up with the idea of a seesaw with triangular pivot point, others built a ramp or a bridge.
Next week, we will debug our code and add matrix animations and sound effects.

Starting Sphero block code

We started using block code to control Sphero. Each pair managed to make their Sphero move in a square shape, loop four times, broadcast a message announcing the shape and also designed a simple LED matrix animation to show the shape we were drawing. Some groups coded a route in the shape of a triangle and designed a triangle matrix animation to play during its journey. Ms McDaid was impressed!

 

First session using Sphero

We have finally finished our Virtual Galleries project! Year 6 started using Sphero coding robots today. We found out how to connect and calibrate them and even had a go at driving and racing them!

Year 6 Virtual Galleries 2021

Please enjoy your tour around Year 6's virtual galleries. They researched and planned these galleries as a means to display some of their wonderful artwork.

Skip Week Champions: Blue Team!

Good Shepherd Skip Week 2021

Years 2,3,4,5 and 6 took part in Good Shepherd's first ever Skip Week! Each child skipped for one minute each day and had their total skips recorded.
The Blue Team managed the most, well done to them! Remember: keep on skipping!

Club 144 Spring Meeting

What were they up to at Club 144’s latest secret meeting?

What does a cubic metre look like?

Good Shepherd Carol Concert 2020

The viewing password is the same as usual. Please ask your child's teacher if you're not sure.

We explored the physics of dropping an egg from a height of 3 metres. We worked out that we needed to:

 Increase the time over which the egg was brought to rest.

 Decrease the egg's velocity at the time of the crash.

Scarlett, Marcel, Finn and Nathan won the challenge. They succeeded in protecting their egg, designing a parachute with padding to absorb some of the force of the impact. Well done to them!

Y3 Summer Term Curriculum Map

Ms. Crawford has been working on something very special with us for Laudato Si - here is a preview of our recreation of St. Francis Canticle using watercolours.

Snow Day research homework

 

Next week is Laudato Si week. We will be learning about climate change. Spend some time researching climate change and global warming. What is climate change? What causes it and what are the effects? Who is most affected by climate change around the world?

 

Create a colourful poster explaining climate change that you can share with your class next week.

 

Here are some useful websites;

Do you think we enjoyed our school trip to the Science Museum to watch a show about 'Forces and Magnets'?

Try this experiment at home with the following;
3 plastic wine glasses - fill 3/4s with water
1 placemat
3 vitamin tubes or similar
3 eggs (best to practice with hard boiled eggs or similar sized balls e.g. golf/ping pong balls, until you are confident enough to use raw eggs!)

GOOD LUCK!

 

BBC Radio 2 500 Words

We have signed up to one of the most successful short story writing competitions in the world!, BBC Radio 2's 500 WORDS. Budding young writers are asked to submit a 500-word story on any topic with the six winners having their story read out on air by a celebrity! The deadline for the story is Thursday 22nd February. The link below gives some ideas to help your child get their story written over half-term. Any child that would like to enter the competition should hand their story to their teacher on Monday 19th February, the first day back after half-term, to be checked over. The children will be given the opportunity to upload their story onto the website at school before the deadline. The competition is not compulsory.

We worked in groups to create a wonderful retelling of the nativity through shadow puppets, combining Religion with our new knowledge of Science!

Mary, Mother of God

We are learning all about shadows, in particular, how they are formed and how they change size. First we experimented with hand puppets which was great fun!

It's Anti Bullying Week and we've been talking about online bullying. We read a really interesting story about Zeb, here is a little snippet; 

 

Zeb was born on the planet Dee. He was a Dee-lite. Dee was a bit like Earth apart from 2 things. Everything there was made of plasticine (including the people) and all the Dee-lites were completely blue. However, Zeb was different. He was blue but had a bright red nose! No one else in his family or street looked like this. As he grew older, he noticed that people would stare at him when he was walking down the road, point, laugh and say rude things...

 

We discussed this story in detail and shared our thoughts. By the end of the lesson we had come up with some really important slogans to help everyone feel loved and accepted.

 

"We are all special and we must be kind to each other. We are all unique"

- Jedrey & Ciaran.

"It doesn't matter what you look like, you are still special" - Zac & Anthony.

"Everyone has a talent and we are all special" - Kilian & Archie.

"Treat people how you would like to be treated, we can all be different things"

- Erica & Cara.

"It's not what you look like on the outside that matters, it is what is inside you" 

- Scarlett & Nancy.

We've been learning all about World War 1 this week. During Art, we used red and black crepe paper to make the Poppies, and then mixed yellow and blue paint to create wonderful shades of green for the stems.

Our recent trip to Fulham Palace for a Roman workshop was very informative and fun!

All Saints Day

We work so hard we need brain breaks, and we love to dance!

The human skeleton is so interesting. We need it for protection, movement and support!

We are Mathematicians!

We are learning about the Christian family and Baptism. We sat in a big circle and shared our baby photos. Have we changed much?

We are Scientists! How much sugar is too much sugar? We examined sweet packets and drinks to find out and the results were shocking!

We have been cooking up a storm with Etain, preparing for our Roman feast!

Just like a Roman lyrics

Just like a Roman

We are learning this song for our Year 3 assembly!
Welcome to Year 3!

Lots of little Beings with a personality,

Each a little different and a little like me.

Lots of little Beings like stars in the sky,

Each one has a different little twinkle in its' eye.

Lots of little Beings like leaves on a tree,

Hanging all together in a Being family.

Lots of little Beings like peas in a pod,

Being all together, being loved by God.

 

Year 2 2016-2017

Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don't know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!

YOGA IN YEAR 2!

 

2015 - 2016 ARCHIVE

 

 

Every morning we start working straight away! There is always a challenge for us on the board. This is a "warm up" for the rest of the day! In one of these challenges we had to find out which was the odd one out and write the reason why. Now that we are in Year 1 we are able to write full sentences! 

International Week

 

Year 1 have been learning about the Philippines during International Week. We learnt about the flag, national costumes, national dishes, popular sports and other information about animals and wildlife.

We dressed up in traditional Filipino costumes and even made a popular 'merienda' (snack) called Turon.

We hope you enjoy looking at our photographs!
