Year 4 lead Mass

Thursday, 19 September 2019

Year 4’s altar display

On Tuesday 17th September it was the turn of Year 4 to lead our whole school Mass in school.

The children prepared readings, prayers and acting for the rest of the school to join in with during our whole school celebration.

One Year 5 child commented, “I feel that I want to be generous on the playground. I want to be generous with my friendship to others.”

Well done Year 4!

Year 6’s Assembly

Year 6 during their assembly

On Friday 13th September the children from Year 6 shared their assembly which was all about Fairtrade.

The children took us on a trip to the future to show us what it would be like without people who are able to produce chocolate and it reminded us that they need to be treated fairly in order for the production of chocolate to be sustainable.

Year 6 also linked Fairtrade to Jesus’ teachings about sharing what we have fairly and the values or being grateful and generous which we are learning about this half term.

Well done and thank – you to Year 6!

Year 1 celebrating!

On Friday 13th September the children from Year 1 wore their own clothes to school to celebrate their Class Saint – St Rose of Lima.

Saint Rose of Lima’s special day is during August, but as we’re not in school during the month the children celebrated today and learned lots about why St Rose of Lima was so special.

Happy Saint’s Day Year 1!

Year 5’s Mass display

On Tuesday 10th September it was Year 5 who led the first school Mass of the new year in school.

The children did a wonderful job of reading and acting out the gospel along with sharing some lovely bidding prayers.

Well done to Year 5 for making the first Mass of the year so special.

One of the Year 6 children commented, “I felt close to Jesus during the acting as I felt like I was one of the crowd.”

Happy Birthday Mary!

Our lovely birthday display for Mary

On Monday 9th September we celebrated Our Lady’s birthday (which was yesterday) by holding a special gathering where we presented Mary with beautiful flowers which the children and their families had donated.

We were overwhelmed with the generosity shown by our families as we had so many lovely flowers which are now shared around the school and placed on our prayer tables.

A BIG thank – you to everyone who brought flowers to school today!

Year 6 performing for one last time!

On Friday 19th July the children from Year 6 treated us to one last dance performance before they leave St Joseph’s.

We are very proud of all of our Year 6 children, they have been a pleasure to have at St Joseph’s and even though they are leaving the building we reminded them that they will always part of the St Joseph’s family.

Thank you Year 6 and all the very best for the future.

Year 4 leading the gathering

On Thursday 18th July the children from Year 4 hosted a prayer partner gathering for their partners in Year 2.

The theme of the gathering was using our talents and being grateful.  The children from Year 4 picked readings, songs and created a lovely display to reflect the theme of the gathering.

Year 2 were very grateful to all the effort Year 4 had out into making their final prayer partner gathering so special.  Well done Year 4!

Each child was spoken about individually by the Year 6 teachers as they were presented with a special medal, scroll and autograph book.

We wish all of our Year 6 children the very best of luck as they move on to the next stage in their lives.
