February 16th - Mass - The Blind Man At Bethsaida
Year 3 Mass for All Souls
On Wednesday 3rd November, Year 3 celebrated Mass with the rest of Key Stage 2. We focused on the Solemnity of Our Souls from Tuesday and thought about all the people we know who have died. We read beautifully and were extremely reverent throughout Mass. It was wonderful to be able to sing our praises to God and enjoyed singing our favourite hymns again.
Celebrating 100 years of the Legion Of Mary
We celebrated beautiful prayer time together this week by focusing on the good works of the Legion of Mary. As it was their special anniversary of 100 years, we learnt about how they began, the work they do in our parish and school, and around the world. We then learnt about the importance of our Rosary Beads. How to hold them and how to pray the prayers associated with the Rosary. Do you know how many Mysteries there are and the different focus days they have? Ask us, we can share our understanding with you.
We then finished our time together, by praying a Decade of the Rosary, thinking about people we know who are in need of our prayers.
Mass for Our Lady of Sorrows 15th September
Celebrating Mass on the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows 15th September
We were so proud of children as they celebrated Mass together at St. Edward’s Church. Due to Covid restrictions we have been unable to celebrate Holy Mass together in person and have been following live streams every week, so it was so nice to be back together with Father Denis again. The children were so reverent and carefully practised their readings, speaking eloquently. A highlight of Mass was definitely being able to sing together again, which the children did with great enthusiasm, learning the signing to go with some of the hymnals as well.
Gospel Values Certificates
Congratulations to Alexander and Una as they celebrated living their lives through our Gospel Values. Thinking carefully about the information they give to the class, being eloquent in their answers. An excellent example to set to everyone.
Well done to Eliza and Kodeigh who have demonstrated the Gospel Value of eloquence. During our lessons they give clear explanations of their knowledge and understanding. When necessary, they will ask good questions to help themselves and others further their understanding. Excellent work!
Celebrating the Nativity of Our Lady
Year 3 and 4 shared a beautiful prayer service together to celebrate the day when we remember the birth of Mary. Quiet reflective music helped us focus our thoughts on Mary and our prayers were for people, especially children, around the world. The children were eager to share their personal prayers with the phase and are thinking about how they can create their own prayer circles for their classes, choosing their favourite passages from the Bible, their favourite hymns and having complete ownership of their special prayer time together.
R.E Craft Work for Mary
After our prayer time together, we began our Art work to celebrate the life of Mary our Mother. Ideas came from @CatholicIcing to help us create 3D artwork for Mary.
