Today Fr Dave visited Year 1 to speak to us about the importance of belonging. We talked about how we would make someone new feel welcome. We listened to a story from St Mark’s Gospel and thought about the message. Fr Dave blessed us with Holy Water and left some for our classroom. He showed us the baptismal candle, oil of chrism and white garment which are used in a baptism. We played a game and then ended a lovely afternoon by singing I belong. Thank you Fr Dave.
Our Year 6 children enjoyed a visit to the Youth Village on Thursday. They were joined by 500 children from around the diocese. It was a great day!
Today our year 5 children took part in a liturgy all about their mothers. It was a very moving liturgy and all the children we brilliant in their various roles, whether it be reading, dancing or singing.
This is a short snippet of the song they sang:
The year 5 children hope you treasure your keepsake from today!
Father Dave visited Year 1 to talk to us about the preparation of the gifts of bread and wine for communion. He showed us the communion hosts and the special dish they go on called a patton and he showed us a chalice with wine in. He also showed us some of the special vestments that he wears. We were all very interested.
Reception had a very frosty walk to church today as part of our ‘Celebrations’ topic. We all got wrapped up in our, hats, coats, scarves and gloves and made sure we were very careful when walking on the ground because it was super slippy!
Last night our year 5 and 6 children shared a beautiful Carol service with the community of St Aloysius. Lots of people commented on how fantastic the service was and the children who took part did extremely well. We love spreading a little bit of Christmas cheer!
For film clips of the night please see Galleries > Federation events.
If you missed this service Year 3 and 4 are holding their Carols by Candlelight service tonight at 4:30pm in St Aloysius Church
