They enjoyed meeting the special guest Ore Oduba, who gave an inspirational talk about perseverance. He is a television news and sports presenter and is well known for presenting BBC children's news. He also featured on 'Strictly Come Dancing' and was the dance champion in 2016. The Choir certainly will remember this day for the rest of their lives!

Lent 2017: Big Fish (91 images)

During Lent, we have reflected on those people around the world who are living in extreme poverty and those that do not have enough money to meet their basic needs, such as food, housing and clothing. On Thursday 30th March, we united as a whole school to turn little fish into big fish by 'scaling up' small fishes. Each class took turns to fill as many fish as they could with silver coins. Year 4 led the way on the fundraising event. In Maths, they were learning about area and perimeter and applied their learning in a practical way too. They each designed their own 'swimming pool' for the playground. One design was chosen and the whole school had to fill as many fish within the area of their swimming pool. The Lighthouse group worked together to count the money. Reception and Year 5 managed to fill the most fish, filling four A3 sized fish each. As a follow-up activity, children were encouraged to use their estimating skills to calculate how much money it would take to fill one fish and how many different ways they could make that total. It was an enjoyable fundraising event all in aid of Cafod.

Crowning of Mary (76 images)

On the last Friday in May, we came together as a whole school to honour Mary, our heavenly Mother. We started our Crowning ceremony with a reading of The Visitation followed by praying a decade of the Rosary altogether outside in the playground. We formed a 'human rosary' in the centre of the playground, consisting of the Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be prayers and the rest of the school sat around the outside of the rosary. Each child brought in a flower and processed into the hall to place their flower at the statue of Our Lady's feet. We finished our prayerful celebration with a well-known hymn to Mary called 'Bring flowers of the rarest'. Thank you to everyone for making this a truly prayerful occasion.
