In the Summer term, John Burland visited Holy Cross and together with Christ the King and our Chaplaincy team we wrote a song for our new OUr Lady of Lourdes CMAT. Have a listen and sing along!

Advent Adoration

We thought about making sure we were awake this Advent to Encounter Him. Thank you to our KS2 girls who sang solos so well. Music is Written by Matt Maher, Lord I need you.

Trees for Learning

Nic and Lynn from the Greenwood Comunity Forest, working with Trees for Learning helped us to plant over 150 trees/plants today. We worked together as a team to work towards planting one million trees by 2020. We would like to thank Nic and Lynn for their time today and hope our trees grown big and strong over the years. Father Paul came to bless the trees with Holy Water as we planted them. We hope to make God's World a greener place to live. We had a great day. Thanks, Miss Duong.

Come and See - Religious Education

Station of the Cross 2019

We learnt about growing to love Jesus more during Lent and why. We talked about Jesus dying on Good Friday and why, and coming back to life on Easter Sunday. We thought about what this meant. Class Reception’s Station of the Cross was Jesus coming back to life. Father Paul took this to church so that it could be displayed on Easter Sunday.

The Easter Story

We role-played parts of the Easter Story, showing what happened to Jesus after the 40 days and 40 nights in the desert.

Class Reception - Growing during Lent

During our Come and See lessons, we have been learning to love Jesus more during Lent and how to act and behave more like Jesus; to love one another how we want to be loved, respect others, share and care with one another and love your enemies. We have also planted seeds and will help them to grow by loving them, along with our baby chicks. We know that a Jesus died for us because He loves us.

Collective Worships

Lenten Adoration

Christ has no body here on Earth but yours. So, what are we doing today, Lord. We heard The Beattitudes and then thought of the good things that we can do with our hands, feet and eyes to do His good work. We drew a self portrait, made a promise to Jesus as to what we are going to do this Lent to be a good disciple.

Class 1 I can try to use words to make the world a better place

Class Reception I know we are happiest when we are united
