We began our Summer half term with a celebration assembly dedicated to St Columba; it is his feast day this Saturday 9th June.
We recognise that St Columba, like many of us, was not perfect, however he listened and prayed to God and tried his best.
The children thought about how they could be like St Columba.
Below are some of their ideas:
- ‘ We will learn from our mistakes.’
- ‘ We will say sorry.’
- We will forgive other people’s mistakes.’
- ‘ We will love everybody.’
- We will spread the Gospel.’
We will spend the week trying our best to keep these promises. We will finish the week with a celebration party in honour of St Columba.
Happy St Columba Day.
Thank you so much to Miss Morgan and her class, for leading our Collective Worship this morning.
They read from the scripture, they led prayers and they sang beautifully, making the Holy Spirit alive in our hearts this morning.
What a lovely, unexpected surprise I had today!
Reception class came along to my office to show me their fantastic Easter bonnets.
Absolutely made my day !
This week has been a week to celebrate the speaking skills of our children.
On Wednesday evening, two of our Year 3 girls attended The Liverpool Primary Schools’ Poetry Festival.
They had been chosen by author, Paul Delaney.
Paul had visited our school and spent the day with some of our gifted writers. Together, they produced some of their own poems.
Here they are with their certificates….one of them even won a ‘Poet of Merit’ award!
Yesterday, Year 3 children talk part in a choral speaking event, alongside other local school.
They were so confident, self- assured and fun!
Thank you to them and their teacher, Mrs Heaton. I was extremely proud of them.
Keep fit in the hall to start our day.
Very important visits read to Year 6, and ask some very difficult questions.
Parents come to join in the fun.
On Monday we welcomed a group of students from Liverpool Hope University.
They worked with Year 3,4,5 and 6 children to teach them about the concept of Fair Trade; this linked in very well with our Enterprise project last term.
We are very grateful to them for their exciting, inspiring and yummy lessons ( chocolate!).
