Activities in school and the parade in Nottingham.
Thank you to Class Reception for preparing their first mass. We have all learnt lots about Saint David.
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!
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.
We learnt lots and had a great morning of activities. Miss Duong.
We enjoyed our last Retreat with Joe and Brodie this year. We learnt about our journey with God and the items we would need. We had a great afternoon. Thank you Joe and Brodie. Miss Duong.
We learnt lots about the Pentecost story and the Holy Spirit. We spread the news by making Pentecost banners using the colours of flames and then spread the good news and celebrated Jesus going back to His Father in heaven and keeping His promise to send His special friend.
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. Miss Duong.
We role-played parts of the Easter Story, showing what happened to Jesus after the 40 days and 40 nights in the desert. Well done children, Miss Duong.
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.
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 Reception prepared our Colective Worship for KS1 today and some of the Reception children even had readings this time. Well done for helping Miss Duong.
The children planned our collective worship for our Celebrating topic. We focused on Mary and Joseph taking baby Jesus to the Temple. Well done Class Reception.
We have so many fantastic players in our school, have a listen and see what they have been learning for their grades and for fun!
We loved having our school chicks at the beginning of Spring. They are now happy and healthy now living on Mrs Wood’s farm. Thank you to Mrs Wood.
I am so proud of what the children have achieved this year, well done to you all and thank you parents and carers for all the help and support this year. You have made my last year in EYFS an amazing one! Thank you, Miss Duong.
We looked and learnt about lots of different things on our journey in love. We learnt about similarities and differences, how to be a good friend, how God is our friend and said some prayers. We had a great morning taking part in lots of activities. Well done Class Reception, Miss Duong.
Wow, haven’t they grown?! The children enjoyed seeing two of our eight grown-up chicks today. Just as last year, one even escaped and ran off and had to be chased by Mrs Knight!
We enjoyed adding to our bug hotel to attract the minibeasts and then explored pond life. We enjoyed learning all about our environment.
We begin this month by welcoming our Foundation Class for next year and modelling how to play and challenge their minds. We also begin working together and working more in depth and at length ready for our transition into Year 1 next year. We have been working very hard. Keep it up, well done, Miss Duong.
We had a great time learning all about the Chinese zodiac and why we celebrate Chinese New Year. We celebrated the year of the pig today.
Wow, haven’t they grown?! The children enjoyed seeing four of our eight grown-up chicks; Summer, Jed, Spot and Harry. Harry even escaped and had to be chased by Mrs Knight!
Class 1 plan a Collective Worship with Mrs Bruce. Well done.
Take a look at our fantastic World Book Day costumes!
In Class 4, we read a number of internet safety stories. Then we had a go at creating our own!
