Planning collective worships

Today the children in Year 3 reflected on their Visitors topic which explored Advent. We thought carefully about what we would like to take from this topic and then worked in groups to plan collective worships around the words of Isaiah. This was lovely work from Year 3! We also completed our Jesse Tree which we have enjoyed learning about this Advent to trace the roots of the family of Jesus.

KS2 Christmas Party

The children had a brilliant time dancing, singing and playing loads of games. The children all got involved and particularly enjoyed when the snow machine came out! The children couldn’t wait to get back to their classrooms to eat their party food too! A great afternoon was had by all (including staff).

Year of Oscar Romero

This morning before the hustle and bustle of the school day started, our pupils, parents and staff all celebrated the life of Oscar Romero in a moving morning reflection.

This time enabled everyone to have some quiet time for prayer and reflection whilst visiting the numerous prayer stations set up around our school hall.

Superb Segedunum

Today the children in Year 3 visited the Roman fort Segedunum in Wallsend. The day started with snow which made us all very excited. We arrived at Segedunum and began a workshop where we learned how to become Roman soldiers. We learned about their uniform, their oath and how to march into battle like a Roman. We then enjoyed our lovely packed lunches and had a trip up the tower. In here we could see the remains of the fort and this looked magical with the snow lying on top of it. After that we explored the museum and loved taking part in lots of fun activities. We had an amazing day and didn’t want to come back to school. We now can’t wait to keep learning about the Romans.

Youth Friday

This year for Youth Friday Year 5 prepared a liturgy for the whole school. We followed the youth Friday liturgy and children from year 4 and 5 completed a liturgical dance. We all listened to the message from the Bishop. We brought forward our YES prayers from each class during the liturgy, that we had prepared during a class sessions preparing for Youth Friday.

In St Mary’s we say YES!
