Year 5 presenting their assembly.
8 October 2019
Year 5 presented their assembly to the school and parents through songs, acting and their thoughtful words.
They talked about a very important matter that we should all be concerned about - looking after the beautiful world that God has given to us. Pope Francis felt so sad about what is happening to our world that he wrote a special letter addressed to every person on the planet, asking us all to protect the earth. It is called ‘Laudato Si’.
They challenged everyone in our school to take simple everyday eco-actions to care for the earth, like turning off lights, reducing water waste recycling, reducing the amount of things we buy and throw away.
Year 5 have challenged each class to stop using single use plastic bottles and to make sure that all of us bring re-useable bottles to school instead for all our drinks.

4 October 2019

The auditorium of Symphony Hall.
25 February 2019
On Monday 25th February Year 3 visited The Primary Proms at Symphony Hall in Birmingham as part of their music curriculum.
It was a wonderful opportunity to experience live music and many different instruments in a beautiful auditorium. The children were in awe by all of the young musicians on stage and had the opportunity to be involved in some of the performances.
Who knows, this may inspire some of our children to become musicians!
Enjoying the musical talents of our children.
7 February 2019
On Thursday afternoon Year 6 and Year 4M shared their musical talents with each other and their parents.
We listened to Year 6 playing their flutes and singing two fantastic songs for us. They are all so talented.
Year 4M showed us how much they have learned about the guitar since they started learning this new instrument in September. They were amazing and we all loved the song about Super Gran!
A big thank you to the music teachers- Miss McNally, Mrs Robert and Mr Chamberlain, and to all the parents who came to watch. It was a wonderful celebration of our children’s musical skills!

Year 4 presenting their assembly.
21 November 2018
On Sunday the 25th November it is the Feast of Christ the King marking the end of the Church�s liturgical year.
Year 4 presented their assembly to the school and parents through songs, acting and their thoughtful words.
We were introduced to four kings, the best of which, the King of Hearts was like Jesus. Both of whom offer us forgiveness, love, welcome and invite us to have a relationship with them one which will make our lives even more beautiful.
We should all let Jesus know whether we will open the door of our hearts and let him in to be the King.
The children shared this beautiful prayer with us:
Thank you Jesus that you are the best King we could ask for. Thank you that you want to be with us in our hearts. Thank you that you love us and will always be with us. We invite you to be the King of our hearts. Help us to follow your ways and live well in your Kingdom. Amen.
