This half-term, we have been learning more about fables. We wrote our very own fable and shared these with the children in Year 2. We loved sharing our work with younger children and hope to do this again.
Let's Connect - Children's Mental Health Week
We took some time out of our busy schedules to talk and learn about Children's Mental Health Week. This year's theme is 'Let's Connect.' We played a game of Bingo, where we wrote down some things we like to do/some attributes that notice about ourselves and then went around the room trying to find others with similarities to us. We were surprised to find that people we don't normally spend time with are more similar to us than we expected. With this in mind, we played some games with people we don't usually spend much time connecting with, and we found this hugely enjoyable - some of us even learned the rules to games we had no idea how to play!

Years 5/6 Netball Tournament
Our year 5 and 6 netball team competed at the Hammersmith and Fulham Primary School High Five Netball Tournament. The Good Shepherd boys and girls won all of their group matches which put the top of their pool and straight into the semi final. The boys and girls played amazingly well throughout the tournament and won their semi final. The final was a very close game and we narrowly missed out on the trophy by a score of 2-0. Well done to all of the children involved, you did yourselves and the school proud.

A Midsummer Night's Dream
The language in Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' is quite tricky, but we found that adding actions to familiar words helps us to understand the scene better. Here we are, using actions during a scene where Hermia is pleading with her father and Duke Theseus to allow her to marry her one true, Lysander.

Mayor’s Cup football matches vs Old Oak
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.
