Brent Year of Mercy Candle

Mrs O’Mullane  and I accompanied three of our Mini Vinnies: Zak Y3, Jaad Y4 and Soliyana Y5, to St Gregory’s College this week to pass on the Brent Year of Mercy candle. We were made very welcome and celebrated a liturgy in the school chapel with some past OLOG pupils and other St Gregory’s students.

 

The children have really enjoyed the work they have done this week on Judaism. Ruth joined us from ’Judaism for Schools’, and led a whole school assembly on Wednesday morning. She then worked with each year group over Wednesday and Thursday in the hall. As well as learning about Shabbat, the Torah and Bar/Bat Mitzvah, the children were given the opportunity to handle scrolls, religious clothing and artefacts. They have learnt new things about one of the major world religions which will help them understand how everyone in the world is different and unique.

Lent Prayer Club


The Lenten Prayer Group was on Wednesdays during Lent and has been a huge success. All pupils were welcome and twenty attended most weeks. We focused on Stations of the Cross this year. A favourite activity was Stations of the Cross Bingo. Children also enjoyed making their own Last Supper scenes.
Look out for The Rosary Prayer Club in Mary's month of May.

About thirty five children have been meeting every week in Advent to prepare for the birth of Jesus in a peaceful and focused way. Here we are creating crib scenes:

Autumn Creation Topic
 

Autumn Creation Topic

 

In this term's work, pupils are beginning their study by examining one or both of the stories of creation found in Genesis 1 and 2. In learning about and then praying the Psalms, pupils are learning how the Church praises God in creation.  
 
It is hoped that pupils will develop:

 

  • A sense of wonder for creation
  • A willingness to learn from Scripture
  • An appreciation of the truths contained in Scripture
  • A sense of the value of prayer
