This week year five have been giving out parts for the year five harvest festival assembly and taking about our CAFOD walk CAFOD is a Catholic peoples charity this year they are raising money for Bolivia witch is a pretty poor country from South America.

To celebrate the end of our topics on ‘Homes’ and ‘People’ Year 3 and 4 joined together for a liturgy together. They sang hymns and listened to readings from Paul’s letters to the Romans, and listened to Abraham’s story from Genesis. There were some great readers and we all enjoyed listening and praying together.
Our Mission was to look after God’s Earth by keeping it clean and tidy.

This week one child was selected from each pastoral care group to be treated to a special tea with our Headmaster, Mr Smithson. Each term teachers keep an eye out for children who are consistently demonstrating the values of care, courtesy and concern in pastoral care and around school. It’s always an incredibly difficult decision for the teachers to make as we have so many very well behaved and caring pupils.
