Primary 3 have begun making their very own Egyptian tombs – watch this space for their final designs later on this week!
On Monday afternoon, Reception and Pre-school invited parents and family members to join them for their Stay and Play session.
'On Thursday 4th April, Max and Emma from Signal 1 came in to talk to us about the life of a radio station. Max is a presenter on the overnight show and Emma is a creative writer; creating and voicing adverts!
Primary 4 were thrilled to share their comic strips with Mrs Hesp in the School House. They have worked hard to produce complex sentences and created some amazing comics!
During March, we held a competition to design a poster on ‘Internet Safety’.
There were many entries for this competition and it was very difficult to choose the winners.
Each of the winning posters included a strong and clear message about how to be safe when using the internet and each poster was presented very well.
In March, some of our students entered the National Intermediate Mathematical Challenge.
The aim of the challenge is to stimulate mathematical problem-solving.
Well done to all of the students who took part, we are very proud to announce that four St Dominic’s students have achieved a certificate.
This is a huge achievement as these students are the highest performers in the Challenge; the top-scoring 40% of participants are awarded bronze, silver and gold certificates in the ratio 3:2:1.
Well done to all of our St Dominic’s students for achieving many House Points this half term. It was a pleasure to hand out so many badges in our House Celebration Assembly.
Some of our Pr 3 and Pr 4 boys and girls took part in a Rugby Mega Fest at Eccleshall Rugby Club last week. The Kids First Mega Fest format is promoted by the English Rugby Football Union.
