Year 6 with their parents during the Liturgy

On Thursday 16th November Year 6 invited their parents into school to share their Remembrance Liturgy.

The children were invited to bring in objects which reminded them of loved ones who are now with Jesus in heaven to create a lovely display around the tree of remembrance.

The children prepared readings and prayers to make the liturgy very special.

It was a lovely liturgy, which in the busy day to day life of school, provided time for stillness and reflection.

The visiting teachers in the assembly

On Friday 13th October we held a special International Link Celebration Assembly to say goodbye to the teachers and Headteacher who are visiting from SP118 school in Poland.

During the assembly Year 6C acted out the new story we are sharing with SP118, Year 6M spoke about what they are grateful for, Year 4 sang, Years 3 and 5 shared posters that they had created and Reception shared a dance – Photos are on our Special Events page.

At the end of the assembly the teachers and Headteacher spoke about the wonderful week we have shared together.  We all agree that the link we have with SP118 is special – every child in the school now has a Pen Pal in SP118 who they video link and write letters too!

We are all very grateful that our link is so strong and pray that it continues to grow.
