Our journey through Holy Week continued with a wonderful drama of the Last Supper and Jesus' arrest by

Class 4.

In our final liturgy Class 5 shared the moving story of

The Three Trees.

We also took the time to remember the promises we made at the start of Lent with our Lenten branches.

Praying Together

The children in Class Two led the whole school in a Lenten liturgy encouraging us to keep our Lent promises and be more like Jesus.

Lent

During Lent the Travelling Cross and resources will be shared around our school community. The bags are being sent home with different children each evening so that everyone will have the opportunity to take part over the coming weeks.

When the bag is in your home please take some time to read through and discuss the resources with your child. If you need and further support please speak to a member of staff.

In addition to the Travelling Crosses each of our classrooms have a Lenten branch as a focal point to our prayer areas.

The idea is that children, staff, parents and visitors can write down their promises and intentions for Lent and these can be hung on the branch.

During Holy Week the branches and intentions will form part of our final Liturgy.

KS2 Carol Concert

The children in KS2 performed a wonderful carol concert laying out the story of the Nativity with lots of wonderful hymns to help get us in the Christmas mood. We had a choir from Class 3, acting from Class 4, Latin from Class 5 and a wonderful Spanish carol to finish. Below is a copy of the concert for anyone who could not make it.

Other Faith Week

Judaism

Monday 27th November

 

Today every child our school took part in a range of learning opportunities focused on the Jewish Faith.

These included the significance of the Star of David, the festival of Hannukah, the making of unleavened bread, the significance of the Sedar Plate and the 10 Commandments.

 

The children worked creatively and collaboratively with their peers to learn and share understanding about another world faith.

Don't forget to head over to the Class 4 Autumn 2 page to see what happened on their visit to St Marie's Cathedral. This was an opportunity for the children to learn a little more about the history of the cathedral and also a time for quiet prayer and reflection.

Class 5 helped us to celebrate Remembrance Day with a very thoughtful and caring assembly.

In November, We Remember

Linked with Remembrance Day, each class have a travelling prayer bag. This bag will go home each day throughout the month of November. This gives the children the opportunity to share prayers with loved ones at home and think about our family members who have passed away.

With the help of the rest of the school and many generous donations Class 5 have made 21 shoe-boxes to donate to Operation Christmas Child. A very big thank you to everyone who donated to this project.
