Advent Purple Day

On Thursday, all the children and staff wore an item of purple to represent the start of Advent. This is joyful time when we  prepare and wait to welcome our Saviour into our lives and hearts.

The angel said to her, ‘Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favour with God. And now, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you will name him Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his ancestor David.

         The Annunciation: Luke 1.26-38

Dear Jesus,

You came to bring us light.

You Came to bring us peace.

You came to bring us hope. 

Blessing our Prayer Garden 

The grass withers and the flowers fall,but the word of our God endures forever.     Isaiah 40:8

Fr Dominic blessed our new prayer garden.  Prayers and scripture were led by our Apostles of Mercy, who then laid prayer stones that they had made in class.  

Prayer stones 

To celebrate our collective worship and the opening of our St Teresa prayer garden, all pupils were invited to make a prayer stone or prayer heart to use in worship. The stone / heart that they made can be used by anyone in school so the children had to think about the message their stone / heart would convey and what it would mean to the person holding it during reflection.

The prayer stones and hearts are beautiful, they can been seen all over our school, on our classroom prayer tables, RE displays, communal prayer tables and in our prayer garden.

Celebrating families home learning

In Year 3, we have been learning about 'The Annunciation' and how Mary received the news that she was going to be the Mother of God.  The children created artwork to show what they understood about 'The Annunciation' and they enjoyed sharing their learning with their classmates.

This term Year 1 and their families worked together to create a piece of art work that represented God’s Great Plan, Adam and Eve or Noah’s Ark. They brought in this wonderful art work for display.

As we were looking at Mary Our Mother, the children brought in a picture of themselves with their mum’s and displayed it on our RE table.

Reception class - Rejoice with Fr Dominic

Remembrance reflection led in prayer and                             scripture. 

Our Pupil Parliament led the school in a wonderful Remembrance Reflection last week. They helped us to pray for all those who have lost their lives in conflict, to hope that we learn from the mistakes of conflict and for the world to become a place of peace. The pupil parliament team led this reflection with a great deal of respect, we are really proud of them.
