The Feast day of Our Lady of Walsingham 

24th September

This week we were observing the Feast Day of Our Lady of Walsingham. We said our own prayers at the statue of Our Lady, where we were joined by Father Sean who said the Hail Mary prayer with us. We talked about how Mary said 'yes' to God and how this brought us Jesus, the Light of the World. 

Year One wondered how we, our school community and global family could be more like Mary and say yes to God daily.

Back in class we talked about the Shrine and Place of Pilgrimage at Walsingham in Norfolk. Following this we painted some pictures of Our Lady.

Rights Respecting School Award Assembly

This week we gathered for our RRSA assembly, considering what our own unique impact could be for our global family and common earth if we used the talents that God gave us. 

The Feast Day of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross

14th September

This week, on Wednesday 14th September, Year One attended their first whole school Mass of the new school year. The 14th September is the Liturgical Feast day of The Exaltation of the Holy Cross so we talked about the meaning of the Feast day and recognised it was for honouring and commemorating the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made on the cross for our salvation. To help us think more deeply about this we listened to 'When I think about the Cross'.

"Live, Love and Learn together"

Today we gathered to talk about our school Mission Statement and how this relates to our everyday life in school. We explored what we thought the words meant and offered our thoughts and prayers to Jesus, telling him how we plan to live by what he has taught us. We also thought about how our Mission Statement links to our class charter promises. Examples included, "Play nicely with friends", "Listen to what our teachers say", "Look after the whole earth" and "Try your best".

Jesus welcomes the children 

Mark 10: 13-16

In our Collective Worship today, we shared the story of Jesus welcoming the children from St. Matthew’s Gospel.  The children shared what they would have said to Jesus had they been there.  We shared some wonderful prayers about new beginnings as unique children of God.
