Wands at the ready!

Year 5 kicked off our new text today with a magical bang!

The Sorting Hat sorted us all into the four houses of Hogwarts! We will be working together in these houses (Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Slytherin, Hufflepuff) in order to earn house points this term. I wonder which house will win this term’s house cup?

We then read chapter one and we’re already hooked. We can’t wait to find out what happens to Harry and his friends!

The Wildlife Trust

Year 6 had enjoyed their first session with the wildlife trust today in which they learn lots about birds and even made some feeding strings with Cheerios. Have a little look at the pictures and ask them what they learnt! IMG_20170113_140456 IMG_20170113_135924 IMG_20170113_135756 IMG_20170113_135709 IMG_20170113_135655 IMG_20170113_135610 IMG_20170113_135423 IMG_20170113_134117 IMG_20170113_134101 IMG_20170113_134041 IMG_20170113_134029 IMG_20170113_134009 IMG_20170113_133955

Wow!

Year 6 have begun their Boy in Striped Pyjamas unit this week which they were all very excited about. For the Christmas holidays they were set a task based on ww2 for their homework. Needless to say I was astounded by the huge amounts of effort put into this. Feel free to pop into our classroom after school on Wednesday (18th) for a little closer look.

 

Well done Year 6! IMG_20170111_093718 IMG_20170111_093725 IMG_20170111_093841 IMG_20170111_093834 IMG_20170111_093829 IMG_20170111_093826 IMG_20170111_093822 IMG_20170111_093813 IMG_20170111_093805 IMG_20170111_093758 IMG_20170111_093746 IMG_20170111_093743 IMG_20170111_093739 IMG_20170111_093734

Bidding Prayers for Christmas Eve Mass

Bidding Prayers:  Tiegan 1 and 2, Regina 3 & 4, Ewan 5 & 6 & Hail Mary

 

We pray for Pope Francis, bishops, priests and deacons, especially Fr Michael and Deacon Paul.  We pray that all members of the church will be servants to one another and show the love and peace of our Saviour, to all.

Lord in your mercy

Hear our prayer

 

Let us pray for peace in the world: that the message of Christmas will turn the hearts of men and women away from violence and hatred and towards justice and reconciliation; we remember especially the war-torn countries of the Middle East and the victims of the terrorist act in Berlin.

Lord in your mercy

Hear our prayer

 

Let us pray for everyone who is homeless this Christmas; for refugees separated from their families, and for those who are distressed and in need: that they may find God’s love for them in the care and friendship of others.

Lord in your mercy

Hear our prayer


We pray for our families: that this Christmas our homes will be filled with hope, peace, love and joy.

Lord in your mercy

Hear our prayer


Let us pray for those who, this Christmas, are sad or lonely, sick or grieving: that our Lord will console and strengthen them with his presence.

Lord in your mercy

Hear our prayer

 

 

Let us pray for our loved ones who have died: that the peace and joy of heaven may be theirs.

Lord in your mercy

Hear our prayer

 

We ask Mary, mother of our Saviour, to join her prayers with ours as we say  Hail Mary…

Christmas is coming

Year Three had a very chilled end to a super busy term, snuggled with their blankets, snacks and marshmellow-topped hot chocolate watching The Polar Express. They have had an absolutely fantastic term full of hard work but loads of success along the way. I wish you all the very best Christmas and the happiest of New Year! Stay safe, get some rest and I look forward to seeing you all fresh faced in 2017! Xx
