Month of May Rosary Club

Ashford Place:

Just before the Christmas holidays, the Mini Vinnies help to spread Christmas cheer in the local community. We visited Ashford Place and met some of the residents. The Mini Vinnies enjoyed taking a closer look at the amazing work that the volunteers at Ashford Place do for the local community. They even made Christmas cards for those who may feel lonely during the Christmas period and helped to make their Christmas dinner memorable by setting the tables and singing Christmas carols.

Our House Team Saints

 

In our school, all of the children are part of a house team which are named after different saints: St Mary, St Bernadette, St Cecilia, St Martin De Porres and St Andrew. Our Year 6 children have created beautiful portraits of these special saints using different artistic mediums to create a fantastic display for the front entrance of the school. Well done Year 6 for these beautiful pieces of art!

Children’s Mental Health Week 2024 – My Voices Matter:

This year, the theme for Children’s Mental Health Week is ‘My Voice Matters’. This week, pupils learnt all about the importance of connecting with others and themselves, taking time to understand and reflect on changing emotions. 

Catholic Children's Society - Lenten Appeal 2024

 

Make your voices heard!

This year’s appeal is inspired by Pope Francis’s call for young people to use their voice to make a difference in the world. Every penny raised by your school will support our work with local disadvantaged children and families.

Pupils will be given Lenten Appeal collection boxes to collect spare change in order to raise money for the CCS. We hope you will be able to support us - every penny counts!

 

There are also some resources and links provided by the Diocese of Westminster which families can interact with at home in preparation for Easter.

 

Maundy Thursday 2024

 

This year, we observed Maundy Thursday at school through a Liturgy led by the Mini Vinnies. The Mini Vinnies worked hard to prepare a liturgy based on the events of Holy Week and re-enacting some of these events in preperation for Easter. This has built on pupils learning about Holy Week in RE lessons.

The Beatitudes

Each fortnight, the Diocese are concentrating on a beatitude which links to the liturgical year. Please see below for the resources they have created so far which could provide times of reflection to be completed during this time of school closure.

November: The Month of the Holy Souls

As November is a month of remembrance, children were given the opportunity to write their intentions which have been added to a prayer book, presented in the front office. The book provides a safe space for children to write their reflections and intentions.
