Spring 1, Week 6 - World Day of the Sick
This week, Year 5 began preparing for World Day of the Sick. We read a letter from the Pope who described the importance of people caring for each other (especially if they are sick). This inspired us to write our own letters to people in our community who are sick.

Autumn 1, Week 4 - Little Way Week
The children have learnt about St Therese of Liseux as we celebrated 'Little Way Week'.
Little Way Week is inspired by St Thérèse of Lisieux, patron of mission. As a child St Thérèse dreamed of being a missionary. With age she understood that very few of us are called to make big and radical gestures, but that through small, loving actions we too can deliver God’s love to the world.

This week Year 5 wrote some lovely prayers thanking God for all the gifts and talents He has given them.
Friday 1st October
On Wednesday this week we went to St. Edward's Church for Year 5's Mass service. The children were so reverent and enthusiastic, and sang the hymns 'I The Lord of Sea and Sky' and 'Christ Be Our Light' beautifully.
All children wrote their own Bidding Prayers prior to the service, and several children read theirs out in church. Those who spoke did so very eloquently, as they asked God to watch over Father Denis and us, as well as the sick and vulnerable in our community, victims of war in Afghanistan, young people whose lives have been disrupted by the pandemic, and others who are in need of God's love and guidance. The introduction and Psalm were also read by Year 5 pupils, who were confident and eloquent also.
Thank you to all staff and parents who walked to Mass with us. You are greatly appreciated!
