During ‘The Year of the Word’, the Liturgy leaders are holding a Bible study group during their lunchtime for the Year groups 2 to 6.
Sheila from Missio came into school to teach us about the work completed by Mission Together. We learnt how important it is to try and help and pray for other children all over the world.
Mrs Bentley from STACS came to teach KS2 choir songs for the Lumen Christi Carol Concert on Wednesday 18th December.
The Mini Vinnies gathered together to write some ‘Postcards of Happiness’ to send to the people at Beeches Care Home in Northfield. We hope that when they receive them it will put a smile on their face. Thank you to Abel’s Father who donated the postcards which he bought from the Holy Land.
Year 3 have been working extremely hard getting ready for their First Holy Communion. On Friday 17th May, the children met with Father Cecil and tried the unconsecrated bread in preparation for receiving the sacrament. On Saturday 18th May, the children came together with their families and received Jesus for the first time. Congratulations children!
On Tuesday 26th February, the new Mini Vinnies were given their badges and certificates in a ceremony during our Whole School Mass. Mrs Hodgkinson our Chair of Governors and our SVP representative for the parish gave out the awards. Congratulations children. We cannot wait for you to ‘turn concern into action’.
Year 3 were joined by their parents and family members for their Inspire workshop. We learned about the Sacrament of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. Thank you to all those who braved the wet weather; we hope you enjoyed your afternoon.
It has been a very busy week selling cakes and collecting shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child. The School Councillors and Liturgy Leaders would like to thank all those who supported the project. We collected 55 shoe boxes and raised £56.00 – Fantastic!
Operation Christmas Child project has officially begun!
The School Councillors invited some guest speakers, from the charity, to tell the rest of the school all about this project.
During Year 3's R.E lesson, Mrs Goodes came to visit with baby Annabel. She told us all about Annabel’s Baptism. She was so impressed with our knowledge. We were able to tell her what we knew about the Oil of Chrism, the God-parents, the Baptismal Candle and the White Garment.
It was lovely to meet Annabel and hear about her special day.
Every day during May, children in key Stage 2 have been saying the Angelus prayer to remind us of how special Our Lady is to us.
