After much hard work and practice, Class 1 and 2 performed our Wriggly Nativity for the school on Monday and our families on Tuesday.
What a success our nativity was! Well done to everyone in Key Stage 1 for your efforts and achievement!
Have a peaceful, wonderful Christmas!

Class 2's Christmas crafts were a success this year and we did so well selling our home-made Fluffy Santa Slime, wrapping paper, gift tags and baubles at our school's Christmas fair.
Well done Class 2 on all of your hard work making our Christmas crafts for our school fair!
On Tuesday 3rd December 2019, Class 2 presented our own Advent Wreath Liturgy where we taught the school about the meaning of different parts of an advent wreath as well as reading the gospel and our own prayers. Then, Father Declan blessed our school's wreaths.
Congratulations to Class 2 on presenting a beautiful Liturgy!
This Friday, St Helen's held a Crib in a Box competition and exhibition in our school hall and it was fantastic!
Many children from Class 2 brought cribs in that they had made at home and they have been entered into our school competition.
In the hall, there was our school Crib in a Box entries as well as all sorts of different cribs that had been brought in for us to look at.
Well done to everyone who entered the competition, you made beautiful cribs that you should treasure and that everyone in Class 2 thought were amazing!
This Friday, to conclude our Memory Box topic, Class 2 made their own miniature memory boxes with photographs from our time exploring our topic.
In our Literacy sessions this week, we also created a Class 2 book on our favourite memories from our first term.
Next week we will be moving on to explore our new topic Beat, Band, Boogie!
This Friday, we raised funds for Children in Need and CAFOD by wearing our brightest colours and Pudsey and Blush attire to school as well as having our faces painted and completing a penny trail in the school hall.
Class 2 had a brilliant day, learning about Children in Need and what other fundraisers do to raise money in our reading comprehension work. We, also, made bookmarks and coloured with the theme of children in need in the afternoon.
Class 2 got the longest trail in the school in the school hall as well so congratulations everyone and thank you for being so generous and bringing money in for these wonderful charities!
This Wednesday, Class 2 started learning Taekwondo.
Everyone had a fantastic time and put 100% of their efforts into our session. We learnt what taekwondo is and where it comes from, how to count in Korean and how to complete different kicks and punches.
Well done on your hard work this week Class 2.
We will all look forward to continuing our learning next Wednesday!
