Class 3 went into church today to discuss ‘The Sacrament of Reconciliation’ with Father John. This has been our recent focus during religious education lessons.
We found out how Father John carries out confession in St Catherine’s church. This is either face to face with the penitent or behind a screen confidentially.
The overall message from Father John was that we need to say sorry (show contrition) when we have committed a sin and always try to do better next time.
We found out that priests and even the Pope go to confession!
Amelia, Kyra and Brandon from Class 3 enjoyed a drama day at Plumpton school on Wednesday entitled 'Play in a Day.'
There was an opportunity to work with other children from several other schools in the area.
Parents and grandparents enjoyed a performance at the end of the day.
We have been learning about the Holy Spirit coming among the people with tongues of fire. Our wind mills and flags, blowing in the wind, remind us the Holy Spirit is always with us.
Class 3 have been enjoying finding out about World War II in their topic work. We have written stories, poems, recipes and beautiful evacuee letters to name but a few. We have also made rationed cookies. Our war time assembly was wonderful!
