Catherine Junior School

Together, we can do it!

Year 6 Autumn Exhibition

Thank you to all the parents, teachers and students that attended our exhibition this term for the “How Does Life Evolve?” project. Each class focused on a different animal that is currently under threat and used their knowledge of adaptation and evolution to predict how they might evolve in the future. Well done for all your hard work!

DNA Workshop

We had a visit from Dr Badge from the University of Leicester who taught us all about DNA! We extracted DNA from a fruit and learn all about genetics. What a fabulous lesson!

 Children in Need

What a wonderful day at the maths fair to raise money for Children in Need!

Twycross Zoo

As part of our PBL project this term (How Does Life Evolve?), we visited Twycross Zoo to look at the wonderful animals and learn more about them. As our project focuses on evolution and adaptation, it was interesting to see how creatures in the past have evolved during a workshop delivered at the zoo. It helped us to think about our own focus animals and how they might evolve in the future based on the threats they are facing today.

Climate Strike

On the 25th of October, Mrs Kitchen, along with some year 6 children, attended the climate strike in town. Additionally, the remaining children and teachers took a trip to Cossington Park in protest of climate change. We want our voices to be heard – it is our future!

Well done to the children for their fabulous placards and posters and for showing passion and dedication towards this cause.

Diwali Assembly

A big well done to all the children who worked so hard to present a Bollywood-style Diwali celebration assembly. We hope you all had a wonderful Diwali!

Rangoli Competition

Thank you to Mrs Patel for launching the Rangoli pattern competition! We had some fantastic entries and everyone enjoyed looking at them at the exhibition after school. Congratulations to all the winners! Don’t forget to keep an eye out for these in the library!
