Well done to year 2 for leading our Easter match at church today.
This Easter, we are launching an OLSJ ‘sacred space’ project. All creations will be due on Tuesday, 30th of April 2019.
Design your own Catholic Church- remember to include all the signs and symbols you have learned about in school and seen in our local church.
Design a ‘shared sacred space’ for Christians and Jews- consider similarities and differences when creating your design.
Design a ‘shared sacred space’ for a hospital, airport, prison or shopping. Consider how this could accommodate Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus and non-religious people.
I look forward to seeing your wonderful creations.

As it is the season of Lent, we wrote a Lenten promise to show how we will be contributing towards the 3 practices of Lent. These can be found on our RE display. We wrote about what our commitment to Lent was and explored how these traditions have come about.
Reception has created a Lenten tree by writing their Lent promises
on leaves. Many children would like to do better in school, make a
bigger effort to help with household chores and to look after each
Today, Father Keith celebrated a beautiful mass for Ash Wednesday. Thank you to Mr Scott for organising the music and to the year 6 team for planning the mass. A special thank you to the Chaplaincy Team for giving ashes out to all the children at the end of church.
