celebrations of the word
celebrations during Raac!
It's not until it'gone that you realise how much you miss it! Just before the start of the Autumn term 2023, we were informed that our school hall had to be sectioned off and put out of use due to the presence of RAAC! Undeterred, we adapted and kept our celebrations of the word going even in these difficult circumstances!
By makin the most of the fine weather and re-introducing Zoom, we were able to keep celebrating together each week thorught these difficult times.
Christmas and advent celebrations
The children prepare for Christmas via Advent celebrations and the always-joyous nativity and carol performance. Not even losing our hall to RAAC could hinder our celebrations!
Our Reception class are awarded their very own Miraculous Medal each October by their Year 4 Buddies. The Miraculous Medal is a devotional medal linked to apparitions of the Virgin Mary in 1830. Its design includes Mary standing on a globe with rays of light, and it's associated with prayers for her intercession. The medal is a symbol of devotion helps us to seek Mary's protection and help through prayer.
We marked All Souls with a celebration of the word linking Remembrance Sunday with remembrance of family and friends from our community that have died.
Each year we support the work of CAFOD by raising money or collecting food donations.
The school's annual Easter production helps the community understand and reflect on the most important of celebrations in our faith.
Weekly celebrations of the word
Each week, as a whole school community, joined by opur parents, we celetbrate the Word of the week. The structure gives the children a clear purpose: we gather as a community, we listen to the Word, we refelct on the meaning of the word and we set ourselves a mission for the week ahead and beyond.
