Year 2 party day

Year 2 and Year 3 had a fantastic party day on Monday. The children played lots of games such as pass the parcel, musical statues, corners and best dancer which resulted in lots of prizes and goodies being won. The children also thoroughly enjoyed their party snacks which were provided by our fantastic kitchen staff.

 

Enterprise day

Year 2 had a great day yesterday selling and buying crafts for enterprise day. The children worked very hard in creating a range of lovely crafts which were sold to lots of children across the school. Thank you to all of the families for their support, we really appreciate it.

 

Helping those less fortunate

What amazing children we have in Year 2! A young girl has, once again, been helping out on the streets of Newcastle last Saturday to give food and other items to those less fortunate than ourselves. She made up two back packs filled with essentials and goodies along with a lovely Christmas card to help spread joy. Two homeless men were very thankful for what they received and we are all very proud of the kind work this Year 2 child has shown.

 

Creative Cookery

What a great afternoon Year 2 have had today! As part of our creative topic, the children discussed the importance of a healthy balanced diet. We watched a couple of clips from the film ‘Matilda’, which our creative topic is based around, and talked about the foods we could see that we should eat a little bit of or a lot of. We then prepared to make fruit straws by firstly cleaning our hands and then carefully cutting pieces of fruit into halves and placing it onto a straw. The children could design it the way they wanted which they loved doing. As a small treat, the children, along with an adult, drizzled a small amount of melted chocolate onto the fruit straws to highlight the fact we can have a small amount of chocolate in our diets – but not too much. The children made the decision as to whether to eat their fruit straws straight away or to take them home – some children could not wait to tuck in. We had a lovely afternoon followed by watching the end of our creative focus, Matilda. Well done, Year 2.

SACRED HEART’S GOT TALENT

Today, we have had a whirlwind of activity. All children were invited to prepare an performance for our school talent contest. The children auditioned in class and successful acts were put through to the final.

Well done to all children who prepared an act – it’s quite a scary thing to perform in front of your classmates, and you all did fantastically well.

PE

Today, we have made the most of the beautiful sunshine by having our PE lesson in the yard. Armed with suncream, hats and plenty of water, we practiced our listening skills, as well as co-ordination, balance and speed with a variety of challenges, including relays, races and group runs. What fun!

Year of Mary – Star of the Sea

This month, we remember Our Lady as the Star of the Sea.

This chosen title for July is Star of the Sea because on the second Sunday of July we celebrate Sea Sunday. On Sea Sunday, the Catholic Church, along with other churches, remembers seafarers and prays for them, their families and those who support them.

Pray with us.

Dear Father,

You chose Mary to be the mother of your son and so our mother.

This month we remember her as Star of the Sea, a guiding light,

a beacon, showing us the way through the storms of life to safely reach her son, Jesus.

We hold in prayer all seafarers who often have dangerous journeys

as they work to supply our needs.

We hold in prayer the work of the Apostleship of the Sea who support them.

We make these prayers in Jesus’ name.

Amen

 

To commemorate those at sea, we reflected together quietly and listened to the sounds of the ocean while we made origami boats, to symbolise our thoughts being with those at sea.

God will Provide

Well done to the children of Year 2, who today held their final KS1 Liturgy. Parents, friends and families joined us to celebrate the Word of God and how He will provide for us. Thank you for all those who attended.
