During the Year of Mercy, Pope Francis has asked us to go on a pilgrimage. On this day, we went on a pilgrimage around school, thinking especially of refugees and the journey they have to make to safety. We said special prayers for these people, asking God to keep them safe and protected on their journey.
First Holy Communion
In the summer term children made their First Holy Communion and received Jesus in Holy Communion for the first time. It was a very special day in the children’s journey of faith and was shared with families and friends. During the Eucharistic prayer, the bread and wine is transformed into Jesus’ Body and Blood. This mystery and Sacrament was introduced by Jesus himself at the Last Supper with his Apostles. May the children continue to grow in their understand of this gift from God, and develop their relationship with Jesus.
Christ The King
Retreat Day - 20th November 2020
We had a fantastic day thinking about Jesus - Christ the King, Ourselves and Each Other. We spoke to Jesus through letters and prayers and drew Jesus in our own image. We thought about our school virtues and the virtues of faith, hope, love and patience. We looked at how we can show these in our words and actions. We looked at the importance of water to the whole world and how we can save water.
River Rea Trip
Year 3 had a great time on their River Rea trip. We walked along the canal and the River Rea, over a stream and along grassy banks. The geography fieldtrip helped our understanding of rivers and their features. We had a fantastic day.
We had a Bible Exhibition lead by Pastor Francis and his team from Kings Norton Baptist Church. The children were taught about the life of Jesus, how he prayed, where he lived, miracles he performed and they looked at artefacts from the Jewish faith. The children had fun finding facts to complete a quiz set by Francis. They were given a booklet called ‘The Life of Jesus’ to take home. It was a great day where we all learned lots!
