Remembrance - Autumn 2

Autumn 2 was a busy half term.

It started with the Rosary Challenge from Mark 10 Mission, which children took part in during Children gathered together each week to say a decade of the Rosary.


On the 11th November, the whole school joined in prayer to remember those who gave their lives for us. Some children learnt the poem 'In Flanders Fields' and recited this for us. Eddie and Jessica prepared our altar around the theme of Remembrance. Some classes prepared artwork which was displayed as a sign of respect.


Following on from our work during the Harvest Festival, where we donated goods to the New Day Church Food hub, we wanted to celebrate the work of the volunteers who help at the food hub. Some of their volunteers joined us to chat and have a brew and a biscuit. 


During the season of Advent, our Worship Leaders (part of our GIFT team) held an assembly about the importance of Advent for Christians and how we could prepare for the coming of Christ. The children set each class a mission to get closer to God as we became closer to Christmas. 


Emmie won our Catholic Social Teaching Award. Emmie has been recognised for her outstanding achievement in putting love into action. She has supported and raised money for many charities, we are sure they will be very grateful for your contributions.
