Our Lady of Lourdes Feast Day

We celebrated our feast day with a tasty croissant. We retold the story of Bernadette meeting Mary. She was collecting sticks near the river when she saw a lady in a grotto. No one believed it was Mary until she told Bernadette her special name. Mary had a message - build a shrine so pilgrims can visit Lourdes pray and be blessed by the Holy Water.

Who is God calling you to be?

On Aspirations Day, we dressed up for jobs we want to do when we are older. Special guests talked to us about how they practised skills to do their jobs. We can use our talents to help others. Maybe we can care for people as medics or dance for their pleasure in a show? Perhaps we can keep people safe as fire fighters or police officers? 
 

We discovered some children keen to serve others in our class. What can you do to help our community in your future job? 

After thinking about how Mary looked after Jesus, the Nursery children like to spot statues and images of Our Lady around school and in church. We think about how she listened to God. How can we be like Mary? 

Christmas

Did you visit the crib scene in church? We went to look and talk about what we could see. It was a lovely chance to pray together. We thanked God for sending His Son, Jesus.

Advent

In Advent we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus. We went to look at the advent wreath in the church. We prayed and sang a new hymn.

 

Stay awake, be ready

You do not know the hour

when the Lord is coming.

Stay awake, be ready.

The Lord is coming soon.

 

Alleluia, alleluia!

The Lord is coming soon.

Red Wednesday

On Red Wednesday, we wore red clothes to school. We brought money to donate to Aid to the Church in Need. We prayed for people around the world who need help to gather as God’s family. We gave thanks that we can pray and go to church freely. 

We have learned about being part of God's family. This hymn reminds us of God's love. 


He invites us to his banqueting table,
and his banner over me is love x 4

 

He is the shepherd and we are the sheep

and his banner over me is love x 4
 

He is the bridge over troubled waters… 

and his banner over me is love x 4
 

He is the vine and we are the branches…

and his banner over me is love x 4
 

There is one way to heaven

by the power of the cross…

and his banner over me is love x 4 

Our Church

We are part of God's family. We gather in church to listen, sing and pray. Have you been into our church? What can you see? 

Holy Water

C showed us how to bless ourselves with Holy Water. What do we say when we make the Sign of the Cross?

Harvest

Nursery brought in food for the harvest collection. We thanked God for the food we have to eat and the people who grow, sell, transport and cook it. We promised to share what we have with others who need it. 

Welcome to our Nursery Catholic Life page. At the start of the year we are learning prayers to start and end our days together. We are learning how to make the Sign of the Cross too. 

 

Our Morning Prayer

Father in heaven, you love me.

you are with me night and day.

I want to love you always 

in all I do and say.

I will try to please you, Father,

bless me through the day.

Amen

End of the Day Prayer

God Our Father, I come to say

thank you for your love today.

Thank you for my family

and all the friends you give to me.

Guard me in the dark of night

and in the morning send your light.

Amen

Prayer Services

Every week, we have a prayer service led by one of the class. Each child will have a turn. We have a prayer bag with books and artefacts to help create a prayer service. 

Our Liturgy Leads

E and G from Y6 are our Liturgy Leads. They are helping us to learn new prayers from the Rosary. We are learning the Our Father and Hail Mary first.

Creation

We use props to help us tell stories from the bible. We started with the story of Creation. What did God make? How can we look after the earth?

We are learning a new hymn about God making the world. Can you remember the actions and words?
