In Year 2 the children have been learning about ‘Treasures’ through the CAFOD units of work on justice. They have reflected on what a treasure is. They found out about the story of Creation. They learnt that God created this wonderful world as a gift that we are to treasure. They also found out that things such as water is a treasure and not everybody is as lucky as us to have easy access to water.
Below are a selection of R.E. displays across the school. They really help us think about how Jesus wanted us to act.
Our Visit to St. Bridget’s School
A selection of children were chosen to go and share some of RE work with the children from St. Bridget’s School. Whilst there the children made St. Bridget’s crosses and made cross biscuits. It was a lovely afternoon and we can’t wait for St. Bridget’s to visit us!
KS2 Choir – Carol Singing at Tesco
The KS2 choir had a great morning carol singing at Tesco in town. They were raising money for CAFOD and the Special Care Baby Unit at West Cumberland Hospital and made almost £200! Amazing! Thank you to everyone who donated and to Tesco for kindly giving the children juice and biscuits!
KS2 Advent Liturgy
The children in KS2 organised and took part in an Advent Prayer and Liturgy session based on reconciliation and repentance during the season of Advent. Representatives from each year group lit a candle whilst asking Jesus to be the light in our lives during Advent so He can help us all become better Christians. Other children read Bible extracts and led us in prayer.
Helping Out in Ghana!
Miss Gregg, one of our STAs, spent three weeks of her summer holidays volunteering at a school in Mpresso, Ghana, Africa. Before she went, we decided that we wanted to send some resources and money with her to help the children who attended the school. Year 6 organised a coffee morning and we also held a non-uniform day to raise money. In total, we raised over £500! We purchased a sports set that included equipment for rounders, rugby, football and a variety of other fun games. Miss Gregg took this with her and taught the children how to play the games. She said they were delighted with the equipment and would use it for many years to come. There was another £350 left for her to take with her to aid a project while she was out there. The money went towards funding the building of, and roof for, a new indoor toilet facility for the children. The money our school and the local community pulled together to raise has made a real difference. Thank you everyone!
