First Reconciliation

Congratulations to the children who have received the Sacrament of Reconcilation this morning for the first time.

St George’s Day

Happy St George’s Day to all of us!

Today, 23rd April, we celebrate the feast day of the patron saint of England. Many other countries also celebrate this day including Greece, Cyprus, Portugal and Croatia. St George was born in Turkey. He was martyred because he refused to deny his Christian faith. Now people turn to him for protection. Find out more here.

Thank you to cook Mrs Finnegan, for our delicious St George’s Day menu today.

 

Holy Week and Easter

The children told the story of the events of Holy Week in their class assemblies. We adore you Oh Christ and we praise you, because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.

He Is Risen.  Alleluia!

Monday Prayer

Welcome back to school! It was wonderful to see you all arriving this morning. It probably feels a bit strange being here again and we know it will take a few days to get used to being in school again. You might be feeling a bit nervous. You might be wondering what it will be like.

But I hope you are excitied too. Excited to show everyone how you have grown and what you have learned while you were at home and excited to greet all your friends and hear their news.

This is a new time and we will be taking the next steps together;  learning and growing together. Let’s make sure  we look after each other and  treat everyone with kindness.

To start off our day, let’s join with Dan and Emily to continue our Lenten journey.

World Book Day 2021

Happy World Book Day everyone! I hope you are wearing your pyjamas and you have got your favourite books ready today for your reading challenge. Oh, and if you managed to find a potato, that will be really useful……more about that later.

First we are delighted to have author, Steve Smallman, with us today. He’s been working on your ideas for potato characters. Let’s see what he came up with……

 

and an extra story….

and some bunny doodles…

 

Monday Prayer

Today is the feast day of St David, the patron saint of Wales. Let’s say a special prayer for everyone who lives in Wales.
We begin the second week of Lent. I hope your Lenten promises are going well. Thank you to Tasmaih who sent in this picture of the Lenten Cross she made.

This week, shine your light so that everyone can see the good that you do.
Join with Dan and Emily in today’s prayer:

 

Monday Prayer

Last week on Ash Wednesday it was the beginning of Lent. Did you make a Lenten promise? It’s not too late to make one now.  Maybe you could promise to do something extra each day, or give up something you like but don’t really need.There are some ideas on the Lent Blog.

During Lent  this year, we will be joining with Dan and Emily from OneLife Music for our daily prayer.

Today we remember that we are the people of God. He chooses us and he calls us.
