Chaplains Hard at Work (again!)

Year 6 chaplains and happy helpers packing the next figures for our family nativity sets and also a Christian Aid candle shield and reflection ideas for the Christmas period. These will be coming home on the last day of term. Happy Christmas to everyone!

Las Posadas 2020

We will be celebrating Las Posadas again as part of our Advent preparations. The ‘Holy Family’ were brought to our class liturgies  and blessed, ready to start their journey visiting your homes. This year everyone will be having their own Mary and Joseph at the beginning of Advent. We will send home baby Jesus, shepherds and some livestock at the end of the term, and the kings and their camels after the holidays – ready for Epiphany – so you can create the whole nativity.

Do email us photos of The Holy Family in your homes so that we can share them on the website.

Harvest

Many thanks to everyone who brought in food for the food bank in Swanage, or money to help CAFOD in their work around the world. We were overwhelmed by your generosity. We held a lovely outdoor Harvest sharing time, followed by worship in our classrooms.

Stations of the Cross

This activity is based on a version of the Via Crucis used by Pope John Paul II at the Colosseum in Rome; it can be used to engage children in the Passion story. Working through each station, allow time for the children to reflect on each state of the story and complete the activity. Say the prayer together before moving to the next station.

Mass with Bishop Mark

A big thank you to everyone who came to Mass yesterday and sang for Bishop Mark – the children sang the new year 6 song – ‘It starts with just one feeling’ – Bishop Mark really enjoyed the song and was especially impressed with its links to Laudato Si.
