Remembrance Day in Year Two

This week, we have been learning about Remembrance Day.  All of the children have been learning about why we wear poppies and taking some quiet, reflective time to think about all of the soldiers who fought for our country during World War One and all of the soldiers who died.  The children decided to show their respect by making a poppy using different resources such as wool, tissue paper and ribbon.  They looked truly beautiful!

 

A Visit to Our Lady Queen of Peach Church

This week, some of our children visited Our Lady Queen of Peace Church in Penshaw. The community there have worked together to create a magnificent poppy installation. Each part of the church represents a different part of the war. Well done to everyone involved!

Remembrance Sunday in Reception

In Reception we have been finding out lots about Remembrance Sunday. We all made a Poppy to help us remember all of the soldiers who did not survive during the war. We talked about how important it is to be friends.

 

Reception’s Visit to Church

Reception Class visited Church during our Baptism topic. Mrs Scullion showed us around and talked about different parts of the Church. She talked about the font at the back of Church and told us that Father Dave makes the water Holy by blessing it.

 

Mass for the Altar Servers 2018

On Saturday 3 November the Guild of St. Stephen and Vicar General Rev. Martin Stempczyk welcomed altar servers from across the Diocese to celebrate our Eighth Altar Servers’ Mass at the Cathedral Church of St. Mary, Newcastle. Four of our pupils regularly serve others and attended the service.

Reception’s Visit to Hebburn Court Care Home

Reception Class visited Hebburn Court Care Home. Our visit was to celebrate Harvest Festival. As it was such a special visit we brought along a hamper containing chocolates and sweets for all of the residents to share. They were very grateful.    

 

Nursery B Exploring Friendships

Nursery B have had great fun this week in our secret garden looking for signs of Autumn while learning about being good friends to one another.  We searched for autumn animals and found the apples had fallen off the trees and the leaves had changed colour. We talked about God’s great creations all around.  We finished off with yummy hot chocolate!
