HARVEST MASS - 18th OCTOBER 2019
We joined together as a whole school to celebrate Harvest Mass today. Children offered gifts of bread, water, wine and food to say thank you to God for the blessings we each have. We prayed for those less fortunate than ourselves and were reminded that the money we raised during CAFOD's Brighten Up Day will be passed onto the food bank to help provide groceries for local families in need. We would like to thank Father Claro for leading the mass and the families and parishioners that joined us.
This week was dedicated to our blessed mother, Mary, and began with a whole school Mass. During the week the children visited the church and offered prayers to Mary. They were reflective and reverent.
On Thursday 28th March, the children in year 1 and 2 had an opportunity to perform to their parents and grandparents. The performance included 'This Little Light of Mine' as well as an entertaining song about the deep blue sea, sung by our year 1/2 choir. The children sang several fairy-tale themed songs that they had been rehearsing for the Infant Voices music festival, which were performed at the Guildhall last Wednesday by 30 of our year 2's. All children sang beautifully and performed the actions clearly. Thank you for your support as always, it is great that the children have an opportunity to show off their learning.
KS2 wowed their audience at the end of March by showcasing this term's music learning. Year 3/4 played recorders and flutes before singing together. Our KS2 choir sang 2 fantastic songs, which featured some impressive solos. Year 5/6 finished the show by sharing some of their own drum compositions and singing together. It was a really enjoyable performance thatthe staff and children had clearly worked very hard on. Well done!
On Thursday 7th February Year 1/2 went to Mountbatten centre to take part in a dance festival. The children had to learn a dance routine to the theme of explorers and then perform it to other schools.
