Nativity Story

Thursday, 16 December 2021

Today we came together to listen to the wonderful Nativity story – the birth of Jesus. We listened to readings, sang together, placed baby Jesus in his manger and put the final symbol on our Jesse Tree. A beautiful gathering to remind us all of the true meaning of Christmas.

A special visit!

The children were very excited today when Father Christmas popped by to say hello! Father Christmas was so proud of all of the children and gave them all a special gift for being so wonderful!

Bambinellis!

Beautiful Bambinellis

During Year 4’s Mass this morning the children presented the Bambinellis which they have made a home – ready for Bambinelli Sunday this Sunday. Fr Paul blessed all the Bambinellis so the children can take God’s blessing home during Advent.

Laudato Si

Monday, 6 December 2021

Some photos of our ‘Laudato Si’ display ‘in praise of God for creation’. This is in response to the Pope’s letter to the world asking us to protect our beautiful earth which God created for us all.

Fratelli Tutti

Take a look at our display for Fratelli Tutti ‘brothers and sisters all’ responding to the Pope’s letter to the world asking us to ‘love our neighbour’

Jesse Tree

Monday, 6 December 2021

This is our JESSE TREE. The Jesse Tree is an Advent tradition where we learn about the ancestors of Jesus from the Old Testament. Each day we learn about different characters such as Samuel, Noah and Moses. We put a symbol on the tree to remind us of their story. We do this all the way to Christmas when we will learn about the birth of baby Jesus at the end of the Jesse Tree.

Nativity Scene

Monday, 6 December 2021

The important people and the important guiding star from the Nativity Gospel have not arrived in Bethlehem yet, so to help the children understand the journey to Bethlehem our star, Mary and Joseph, Wise men and shepherd are placed around out hall. Every week in Advent they get CLOSER to the stable!

Christmas Tree

Monday, 6 December 2021

Here you can see our beautiful Christmas tree surrounded by our Jesse Tree and the almost empty Nativity stable (apart from the animals!) which won’t be empty by the time we reach Christmas……lots is still yet to happen in the nativity story!

Advent Tree

Monday, 6 December 2021

This is our ADVENT tree. It’s decorated with the Advent promises of every child in our school! At this stage in Advent we are getting ready for the time when Jesus returns to the world. We have all made promises to be more like Jesus this Advent.

Thank you!
