Volunteering at St Matthias

Tonight, Miss MacFarlane, Miss Martin and Miss Raistrick brought 4 enthusiastic children, Annie, Frankie, James and Johnny to the St. Matthias Homeless Shelter to give Sister Chris a helping hand. Have a look at the hard work they did to ensure they served those in need in our community. Well done to you all. What an inspirational team following in the footsteps of Jesus!

God is present in everything we do

In Year 1 we learned that although God might not be with us in a physical form, God’s spiritual presence remains with us. We thought about the different ways God is present in our everyday.

We cut out handprints and wrote a sentence using each finger. For example; God is in my friendships. We then created a beautiful display to help us to notice that God is all around us in; people, places and actions.

Advent Carol Service

Today, year 6 were welcomed by the Catholic Children’s Society (CCS) to be part of the Nativity Service in Westminster Cathedral. It was such a joy to celebrate with all the children from across the diocese. Our head boy Harry and head girl Alice were delighted to drop off our donation to help those in need this Christmas. We were delighted to support the Catholic Children’s Society in the incredible work they do.

Year 2 Advent Wreaths

As a class we decided to make a class Advent Wreath. We thought it
would be a good idea to colour our hand templates green and then join
them together to make a circle. This circle represents God’s everlasting
love for us. After this we added the candles and made it into a class display.

We were really proud of it!

 

Tobit Class Mass

Today in Tobit class we delivered our class Mass. Father Keith came in
to our classroom. When reading our scripture we came to the front of
the class and bowed at the altar. We also sang lots of hymns.

We really enjoyed our class Mass.

Diwali in year 6

Today in R.E. (year 6) we learnt about Diwali. Diwali is a festival of light, which is in
honour of the Goddess Lakshmi. We learnt that during Diwali, Goddess
Lakshmi is believed to visit homes that are well lit; so families decorate
their homes with Rangoli patterns. The Rangoli patterns are created on
doorsteps to welcome everybody. For this celebration people wear their best
clothes or buy new ones, children are given presents and New Year greetings
are exchanged through visits or Diwali cards. In our lesson, we designed our
own Rangoli patterns using colouring pencils and felt tips.
