Holy Week Activities Monday 29th March 2021-1st April 2021


On Monday whole school took part in a lovely reconciliation service planned by Miss Foster. The children were reminded that Holy Week started at the weekend with Palm Sunday and that there is nothing that we can do that will make God love you less. We recognised that sometimes we make mistakes or sin and that this can move us away from Jesus. We listened to the Parable of the Lost Son - Luke 15:11-32 and discussed the fact that the Father in the story didn’t mind that his son had made a mistake and left him. He forgave him anyway. God knows that we will make mistakes but he will always welcome us back. The children had the opportunity to examine their consciences and were reminded that God takes away the sins when we say sorry. We all finished the prayer service by saying the Act of Contrition.



Schools focus for today was on the Last Supper. We listened to a passage from the Bible and talked about how Jesus wanted to have one last meal with his friends before he left them. We reminded the children how we celebrate this meal every week at mass during the Eucharistic prayer. During this part of the Mass we are actually part of the Last Supper. The children thought about how they show love for others, whilst drawing a picture of the Last Supper. The children were asked to draw themselves at the table with Jesus and the disciples.


Today we focused on the Stations on the Cross. Our Lumen Christi family of schools put together a beautiful collective Stations of the Cross. Link is below.
Lumen Christi’s presentation of the Stations of the Cross led us on a prayerful journey through the final days of Jesus’ life. In our classrooms, children have been learning about the events of Holy Week in detail and have been encouraged to think about the important lessons that we can learn from Jesus’ actions. He showed great strength and humility even though he faced betrayal, humiliation and sorrow. Like Jesus, and his disciples, we must stand up for what is right and serve one another.


Today we celebrate Good Friday. The day that Jesus died. We talked about how Jesus died for us and that Jesus died for our sins. We spent some time in silent prayer reflecting on that Jesus died for us.

Advent- Whole School Retreat day- 10th December 2020

We had another retreat day based on the Nativity. The children learnt about the Annunciation and Mary's yes to God to have the baby Jesus. Then they heard about the journey that Mary and Joseph travelled to get to Bethlehem. To reflect the children drew a picture of Mary and Joseph. Next the children heard about the Stable where Jesus was born. Then they drew a picture of the stable, Baby Jesus and some of the animals. In the afternoon the children painted a picture of the nativity scene.

Whole school retreat with Emily and Dan-6th March 2020. 
Dan and Emily came to lead a whole school retreat for us based on Lent and the year of the God who speaks. 

We started the day with prayers and time in the hall. Then we played lots of games and had to guess the bible story from different clues. 




Then we had a break and early years and key stage one learnt a new song with Dan and Emily

Then we did some work in our own classes, listening and thinking about scripture. 


Next we went into the hall to play some more games and ended the day with a very special prayer service.
