We raised lots of money for the Good Shepherd Appeal with our Easter Egg Raffle. Thank you to all the teachers for donating the eggs.
Year 5 and 6 created a beautiful set of the Stations of the Cross for us. Today we walked around school, following the cross and reflecting on each stage of Jesus’ final journey under the weight of the wood.
We adore you Oh Christ and we praise you,
because by your holy cross, you have redeemed the world.
We began our Holy Week celebrations with Year 1 and 2 retelling the story of Jesus entering Jerusalem. The crowds called out in praise. Let our hearts too, sing his praise.
The Last Supper
Year 3 told the story of Jesus’ last meal with his friends. He washed their feet as a symbol of service and humility. When we share bread and wine in the Blessed Sacrament, we remember what Jesus did on this special night.
Our friends from St Edmund’s came to help us to present the story of Peter, denying his master and friend by saying he did not know him. And yet Jesus forgave him. And we know he will forgive us too. Let us turn back to Jesus and try again, to follow his example of love.
The soldiers drove nails through Jesus’ hands and feet. They lifted up the cross. In pain, our precious Lord died for our sins.
Many people suffer pain every day from being sick, hungry, poor, and because of war or natural disasters. Jesus, please comfort everyone who is in pain today.
Thank you to all the parents who came into school for our Africa Celebration, especially those who helped with workshops and cooked delicious dishes to share. It was lovely to see the pride children took in sharing their cultures with their friends and teachers.
Some of the children blogged their work. Have a look here:
We’ve had a great day sharing all sorts of stories and poems. Have a look at the class blogs to see some of the activities from the day.
Year 6 created blog posts about Tail End Charlie by Mick Manning and Brita Granström. Have a look at their thoughts here
We challenged the children to make a hat to represent their favourite book character. Here’s a selection of their efforts. Well done all.
