Wow Moments!, by Mrs Fitzsimons

Date: 19th Oct 2015 @ 11:03pm

We would love to hear more about the exciting, new or clever things your child gets up to at home! We call these moments “Wow Moments” - when your child does something that makes you feel proud and really shows their developing learning and understanding.

These moments are totally individual to your child, and can be as simple as “Tom put his socks on all by himself”, “Carla rode her bike without any stabilisers”, “Emily read number 57 at the bus stop” or “Charlie wrote his full name without any help”. They can be quotes from your child that really impressed you, e.g. “Gemma said, ‘Mum, it must be Autumn because those leaves are turning browny-yellow’”” or just a simple description of something lovely that your child has done.

We would love to share and celebrate these moments with you, so please find attached a page of “Wow” stars. When you would like to share a “Wow Moment” with us, just fill in one of these stars and send it into school with your child. Please feel free to e-mail us with your child’s “Wow Moments” too!

This evening, they knocked out St Catherine's in a nailbiting match! Mason started the scoring with a wonder goal (it should have been 4-0 by this time). Soon after, St Catherine's won a goal back bringing the final score to 1-1. The draw meant a penalty shoot out was next! The boys, parents and spectators were all feeling angsious, but with the 'Slaniator' in goal, who needed to be nervous!

Year 4 Swimming - 30/6/15, by Mrs Whelan

Date: 23rd Jun 2015 @ 8:36pm

Next week's swimming lesson sounds sure to be an exciting one! Children have been asked to bring a pair of pyjamas to wear for their lesson! These should preferably be long trousers and a top, but shorts are suitable too. No onesies or nighties please! Children still need to bring along their usual swimming kit (to wear underneath) and towel, and we also ask that you bring a large carrier bag or bin bag so that the children can put their wet things into it for the rest of the day. I can't wait for what sounds like it will be a super fun lesson!

Year 5 and 6 Class Mass, by Mr Lavin

Date: 13th Feb 2015 @ 12:53pm

On Friday 13th February, Year 5 and 6 children celebrated their class mass.

The children prepared the readings, choose the hymns and participated in each part of the mass.

If was the first time that children sang the new mass - this was met by great appreciation by Father Chris.

The comments the children received after mass were outstanding! Many asked if the children could come each day! 

It was great to see so many smiling faces around the school and I know Mrs Bramhall and Father Chris were very proud and pleased with the children.

Feel free to have a look at the Mass Booklet below.
