Black History

Wednesday, 20 October 2021

Work from Year 4!

This week we have celebrated Black History. The children from all classes have learnt about why Black History Month is celebrated alongside learning about Rosa Parkes, Martin Luther King and Lewis Hamilton. We understand that everyone has the right to be treated equally – just as Jesus taught us.

A new addition!

Our new Prayer Kneeler looks beautiful in the school hall. Perfect for children to use for prayers, penance and reflection. Thanks a lot to for finding it for us!

Well done Year 2!

On Friday 15th October Year 2 led a beautiful assembly all about Our Lady. The children shared events in Mary’s life before she became the Mother of Jesus and answered ‘yes’ to God’s call and how she is so special to us all. Well done Year 2!
