Year 3 Day Retreat to Alton Castle



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.


Holy Week


Well done to Year 3, Year 4 and Year 5 for leading us through our Holy Week prayer journey following the footsteps of Jesus.
We watched Palms being waved to welcome Jesus on Palm Sunday by Year 4 and then Year 3 led us through the events of Maundy Thursday and the Last Supper where we witnessed the first celebration of the Eucharist with the breaking of bread. Finally, Year 5 concluded our journey, as they led us through the stations of the cross and we witnessed Jesus’ love and compassion for us even as He was been put to death.

Year 3 Role Play A Baptism

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.Screen Shot 2016-11-18 at 22.03.13


Prayer Project (Spring 2015)

Prayer Project

We have recently taken part in a prayer project, along with Bishop Walsh, Holy Cross and St Nicholas’ Schools. Each house group had a different theme to write a prayer about. Read our selection of prayers and look out for our Academy Prayer, produced by a selection of students from each school.
