Our Year 6 Pupil Chaplains are:
We are blessed to have such a great team to help promote the Catholic faith in our school.
Each week, our children share the Wednesday Word in class and we hope you are enjoying sharing it with your child/children.
Please let us know your thoughts on this - your feedback is always welcomed and appreciated.
This week (w/c 1.10.18) we celebrated Little Way Week and did little acts of kindness that made a big difference. We learnt about St Therese and saw what we can do to get an extra smile.
To represent this, the children wrote down any acts of kindness that they saw. Eventually, we ended up with a garden of love.

Cafod Harvest Fast Day - Friday, 5th October 2018
On Friday 5th October we all tried to brighten up the harvest by holding a non-uniform day and bringing donations to school for Cafod. We raised £60!
Cafod can continue to work with the poorest communities because of our donations and together we can help to build a brighter world, free from extreme poverty.
Harvest collective worship
On Monday 15th October we held this collective worship in school and invited our parents to join us.
Sacramental Programme 2018/19
This year's Sacramental Programme started with a meeting for the children and their parents/carers on the 15th November. The children were then presented at the parish Mass at Our Lady's on Sunday 18th November.
The children who came to prayer group each made a cross to represent one of the soldiers who was killed in the WW1 from our local area. We placed these crosses on the hill near the entrance to our school during a short prayer service.
The pupil chaplains also made a ceramic poppy to represent each of these soldiers. These poppies were then presented during our Remembrance Mass in church as the names of the men were read out.
Some of these poppies have been given to the families of these men. Each child in school made a poppy which was then attached to a class wreath, which was also presented in our Remembrance Mass.
Monday 3rd December - We held a crib service in school as we set up our crib.
Tuesday 4th December - We all went to church for a whole school Advent Mass.
Tuesday 11th December - Year 5 pupils attended St Alban's church to take part in a Christmas concert with other primary schools.
Tuesday 11th December - Year 4 pupils went to Eachstep Care Home to spread some Christmas joy by singing some carols and making angels with the residents.
Thursday 13th/Friday 14th December - KS1 Nativity.
Tuesday 18th December - KS2 Christmas service in church.
Throughout Advent, three Posadas have been visiting the homes of some of our children. The children take Mary and Joseph home each night and look after them as they journey to Bethlehem.
Father Ged asked for our help. He wants to make some hampers for people in our parish who may be lonely at Christmas. Once again, your generosity in providing food donations for these hampers has been amazing. Many thanks.
Monday 7th January
Today we gathered in the hall to celebrate the special feast day of the Epiphany (which actually took place on Sunday 6th January). We remembered the visit of the Wise men as they came to worship Jesus.
We reflected on what we want to be in 2019 to ensure that we are living life to the full. We prayed that God will shine His light on our fears, show us how we can work together and lift our hearts with joy.
