Jonah class: Adoration and Benediction

Today, Jonah class went to the church to learn about Adoration and Benediction with Father Keith.

Father Keith explained that Adoration was all about adoring Jesus and how we can do that in our lives. The children were shown the monstrance, with the host placed in the centre. We had some quiet reflection time where we were able to focus solely on the holy sacrament inside the monstrance and think about how and why we love God.

We are all very much looking forward to Father Keith joining us in school on Friday for our procession 🙂

Year 5 Art for Assembly

For Assembly next Friday we have created some scenes related to anti-racism week. This is the story of a little girl with green hair who struggled to fit in. But at the end, children realised having green hair was really cool and soon everyone in the school had different coloured hair, even the teachers.
