Red Wednesday: Aid to the Church in Need are a charity who support the people of our Church (the worldwide Catholic church) who are in need in any way – especially those who are persecuted for their beliefs. Last week we wore Red to show our support of persecuted Christians. This week we are going to continue our prayer for them!

What is meant by Learned and Wise? We are growing to be learned and see God in all things and use what we have learned wisely for the good of others.

Eternal rest, grant unto them O Lord And let perpetual light shine upon them May they rest in peace Amen

Remembrance Day:Today is Armistice Day– Armistice was when the generals all signed an agreement to stop fighting after 4 long years at the end of World War 1. The agreement was signed at the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month and this is why each year on 11th November we REMEMBER and at 11.00 am each year we are SILENT.

All Souls' Day, also known as the Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed and the Day of the Dead, is a day of prayer and remembrance for the faithful departed. Today we gathered together for Mass and thought about all of family and friends who have passed.

Laudato Si: Caring for our common home. Today we gathered together for our assembly to help us reflect on Pope Francis' message about looking after the world. We are joining with Fr Sean and the parish to earn the CAFOD Live Simply Award. It helps our community to live, not just simply, but also more fully.

Memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary: 7th October. I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the Rosary. (Our Lady to St Dominic)

Little Way Week: Little Way Week is run by the charity MISSIO in honour of St. Therese of Lisieux whose feast day is 1st October.

We went to church for Benediction with Deacon Tim. We said the Divine Praises together and took a moment to pray for our family, friends and ourselves and to ask God to be there for us and guide us on the right path.

WE have been thinking about the different types of prayer and have wrote our own prayers thanking God for the wonders of his creation.

COP26 Display... WOW, Year 4 you have created a fabulous display about a very important issue.

Climate change is a problem that can no longer be left to future generations Pope Francis We have created pieces of art work that CAFOD will lobby the government on our behalf. We want to build a fairer world and stop climate change...

New Beginnings: We were led in a beautiful, well prepared prayer service by our Liturgy leads

Our virtues for this half term are Eloquent and Truthful: We need to try to use our creative gifts to say things in a way that is interesting, truthful, memorable and faithful. God wants us to be truthful in all we do.

Class Saints:

St. John Henry Newman and St.Philip Neri

We pray that the will give us strength and courage to inspire us to live our lives by their example.



Class Charter: We have created our Class Charter to show how we will treat each other this year and follow Jesus' example.

Sycamore class are very happy to be back at school where we can live, love and learn together with Christ at the centre. We hope for a successful year ahead with God's help and guidance on the right path.
