Our 'Unique and Valued' virtual retreat with Dan and Emily from One Life Music
It's been a strange few months and a very busy time in school for everyone since returning in September. We are so proud of our children; their hard work, resilience and care and support for one another. We therefore thought that Anti-bullying week was the perfect time to join together (but still in our bubbles!) to celebrate a retreat; time to be still, reflect and to spend time focused in the presence of God. Time to appreciate how utterly loved we are by God and how precious and unique we are to him.
We absolutely loved the music, reflections, prayers and activities the morning brought. The children brought home their little books to show you and hopefully shared some thoughts on their morning with you too. 🌟
A Perfect Poynton
As an extension to our Geography work on our local area, we thought about where Jesus lived and shared this information...
The Wednesday Word and Anti-bullying Week
We have continued to share the Wednesday Word and Sunday Gospels in class each week. We were delighted when this week's word, 'Kindness' perfectly complimented our PSHE work on bullying. For us, Jesus gave us the perfect example of how to live and how to treat others. We reminded ourselves of his important instructions;
'Love one Another as I have loved you.' And 'Love your neighbour as yourself.'
This week's Gospel reminds us that what we do for others we also do for Jesus.
We read the story Jesus told of 'The Good Samaritan' and created poster messages that we know Jesus would want us to follow...
You can see us holding our messages on our class 'Anti-bullying page.'
Starting learning about Mary, Mother of God
We worked with a partner to look at a beautiful modern art picture of Mary to record what we already know about this special lady.
Noah comes to visit...
To help us to understand why Noah did as God asked we were very lucky to have Noah himself join us! He stepped straight off his arc and into our classroom so we could interview him! 🌈
Our Noah's Ark Triptychs
Here are our beautifully illustrated triptychs which reflect different parts of the Noah's Ark story. Around the edges you will notice words we have written; chosen to highlight important messages and events from the story. 🌈
God's Great Plan
In response to thinking what our favourite part of God's creation is, we have created these group collages. We think they look fabulous! ❤️😀
We thank God for the beauty and variety of the world we live in. 🙌
Wow! You really did 'Brighten Up' our CAFOD Harvest appeal today with your amazing outfits, sparkle, hair colour, glitter and happy smiles!
You have been messengers of God's love by sharing what you have with those less fortunate than ourselves. The homeless and disadvantaged in Stockport will benefit from your wonderful food donations which will be taken to The Wellspring. CAFOD will use the money we have raised to provide clean water in countries overseas where communities struggle to enjoy the most basic of human rights. Thank you everyone. 🙌🌟🤗
