After receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation, the children in Year 3 attended a retreat day to Alton Castle. It was a wonderful, fun-filled day with numerous opportunities to reflect upon their faith journey so far and to prepare for the next step…receiving the Body of Christ on our First Holy Communion day.
In March, the children in Year 6 visited Manor Adventure in Shropshire where they took part in activities such as obstacle courses through mud, underground mazes, abseiling, rock climbing and many more!
Today, Year 2J led an excellent assembly with lots of important message about the different ways we can show love to one another.
Today, Year 2S led a fantastic assembly where we all learnt a lot about China and the Chinese New Year!
Here are some photos of year 1J from our science experiment investigating if our foot and forearm are the same size:
As the children in Year 6 prepared for receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation, Deacon Daniel helped them to develop a greater understanding of their faith as he gave them a tour of the Church.
Did you know…
- We bless ourselves with the Holy Water from the font to wash away our sins before we enter the Church
- There are three parts of the Church: the narthex, the nave and the sanctuary
- There are three steps leading up to the alter representing God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit
As Year 3 prepare to take the next step on their faith journey, they are finding out all about the Sacraments. They role played a Baptism and chose the Christian name Teresa for the baby after Saint Teresa of Calcutta. The children demonstrated the Gospel values of being active and curious as they found out about their own Baptism.
