Our junior netball team had a great time competing against other local schools in an exciting Hi 5s netball tournament. Each member of the squad rotated to play in a different position for each match. Bella and Maya were our top scorers and Rioghna earned a Player of the Day award for her tenacity and awareness of space during our matches.
Nine children from Y4, 5 and 6 competed in an exciting multi-skills competition hosted by St.Paul's Girls' School. They had a variety of activities to try, including bowling, football and curling. Our team had a great time and were awarded medals for their team's high score. Well done to all of them!
As part of the Virtual Galleries Project, Year 5 researched logos and decided that something CLEAR, SIMPLE and UNIQUE made for the most memorable logos.
They tried to incorporate these features in their own logos using the website www.logomakr.com.
Our girls’ and boys’ football teams played their first matches of the season against Old Oak.
The girls played first in a fast and furious encounter that saw Rioghna make a series of brave saves in goal. The game ended 0-0.
The boys spent most of the first half camped in their opponents’ half and ended the half 1-0 up after Tadhg finished calmly after the ball zipped around the penalty area. A great second goal for Good Shepherd from William in the second half secured the win for the boys.
Our Easy Riders had their first ride of the year in Wendell Park. I’m sure the other children from our lunchtime learn-to-ride club will be ready to join us on our next outing!
We had another top secret meeting at the end of last term. What do you think they might have been doing?
Keep practising your tables so you can join Club 144 too!

We have been learning about electricity in science. Here, you can see us creating our own electrical circuits. We needed wires, batteries and a bulb to create our circuits. In the end, we were able to explain how electricity flows through our homes and around the country.
Meet the newest pupil at the Good Shepherd, Rocket. Mrs. Lavelle very kindly made a surprise visit to our classroom so that we could meet him. We all fell in love and have promised to look after him really well.
Luckily, we managed to have our annual summer fair at the Good Shepherd. We each received a set of tickets and could use them on activities and to win prizes! There were lots of fun activities set up for us throughout the day, like a super slide, hook a duck, a photo booth, a treasure trail and whack a mole. We could also cool down with an ice cold drink or an ice cream from the ice cream stall.
We have been studying the book ‘The Lost Happy Endings’ by Carol Ann Duffy this half term. The children have really enjoyed getting to know the main character, Jub. Here, you can see examples of our ‘role on the wall’, in which the children came up with words to describe Jub’s appearance and inner thoughts and feelings. Also, a big thank you to Annie-Rose who did a fantastic job at taking on the role of Jub in the hot seating activity, where children got to meet Jub in person. We had lots of unanswered questions for her!
We found that the length of our forearms was equal to the length of our feet!
We have been learning about the water cycle in science. Over half term, we created projects based on the water cycle, Here, you can see some of the children’s recreations of the water cycle.
Over the past year, all of the children (and staff) of the Good Shepherd have missed out on a very important celebration – their birthday party! To make up for all of the birthday parties that have been missed in the last year, we threw a massive birthday bash! There was a silent disco, a bouncy castle, a super slide, cupcake decorating and party games. We even had the chance to win prizes. As a class, we were rewarded with a movie afternoon, a whole class game and 10 extra minutes of play!
