Loreto Highlights Update - 6 March 2020
Year 1 Religion

Year 1 have made a Lenten Promise Tree.  In class the children have talked about ways that we can be closer to God during Lent.  All the children wrote a promise on a leaf and then placed this on the tree. 
The children will try to keep their promises as we count down the days to Easter.


Road Racing

Children from Years 3 to Year 7 participate in Road Racing as part of their Physical Education lessons. The aim is for each child to try and beat their best time each week. We discuss the importance of health and fitness in our lives and how to tactically plan their race in order to conserve energy for every lap.

Sacrament of Reconciliation

This week, the Year 3 children who will be receiving First Holy Communion in May celebrated their first Sacrament of Reconciliation with Mgr. Paul Bear and Mgr. Charlie Azopardi.  The children had been well prepared by Sister Maria for this very special occasion, which marks another big step forward on their journey of faith.

Gardening Club member Izzy Henry has constructed from recycled materials a small Hydroponics propagator.  Using an old off cut of drainage pipe, she drilled 4 holes and inserted a piece of rockwool containing lettuce seeds.  The pipe was then fixed inside two up-cycled drinks bottles to form the propagation unit.  The seeds should grow in water which contains a small out of liquid nutrients. We will await the results of this test ahead of planning our large system.
PGL Adventure 2021 Meeting
A meeting was held this week to inform parents about the upcoming PGL adventure trip to the UK for current year 5 children.

World Book Day
Thursday 5th March, Police Crime Scenes appeared across the school site as pupils were put through their literacy skills to read clues to solve the crimes.  During the morning there was a book and cake stall where children could purchase a treat to read or eat with the proceeds going to the Library fund and charities.  Our youngest children in Early Foundation Years were read stories by our Librarians and staff acted out various roles to make the stories come to life.  This would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of the Loreto Librarians.  Middle school children were given a class reader quiz to test their knowledge.
