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.
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.
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.
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!

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.
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.
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.
