Holy Week Liturgies

We wish all of our families a very happy and holy Easter.

Our term has come to an end, marked by some very moving Holy Week liturgies, led by different classes. These have given our children a very clear picture of events leading up to Jesus dying on the cross, to save us from our sins, before being laid in the tomb.  

Please take the opportunity to help your children continue to experience the special liturgies thereafter in your own parishes, including the special celebration of Easter, at the Easter vigil or on Easter Sunday where they will hear about the Resurrection. We will be reminding them about this great event when we return after the holidays.

CAFOD Fast Day

Thanks to all of you who volunteered to take part in our Lenten Fast Day lunch last Friday to support Cafod's work in combating malnutrition in Zimbabwe. We hope you enjoyed the soup! Well done to all the children and staff who chopped all the vegetables this morning.  If you haven’t paid already, please pay via our online payment system or send £2 to the school office on Monday. Over 100 meals of Soup were served – a magnificent total- giving us over £300 to donate to CAFOD. Our donations will be matched by the UK Government. This means that we have raised £600 making double the difference!

French Language Week

Children at St Marie's celebrated French Languages Day on Wednesday this week. Many fun activities took place during the French lessons, including parachute games and other outdoor games to help Y3 learn some new colours. 
Other classes enjoyed playing games using their language skills during their lessons. Year 6 are preparing for a fashion show after Easter, so they practised their vocabulary and phrases by playing Lotto. Year 5 also played Lotto and proved they really know the French words for sports and pastimes. A game of Heads up Thumbs Down went down well, with the children having to use french words to guess who had chosen them.  'Chinese Whispers' in French went down well, especially when the children were told there would be prizes for the best team effort! 
Well done everyone who took part on Wednesday.

World Book Day at St Marie's

This year for World Book Day our theme was colour. The children came to school dressed in bright colours for the day based on the book, ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ by Oliver Jeffers. The children completed colour related activities during the day, which included reading further stories about colour, colour themed poetry, other writing activities and some magnificent colourful art work. At the end of the day, the children shared what they had done with children in other classes and listened to 3 stories read by Mr Fernandes.

It was a day to promote the love of reading! Thank you to everyone for the time and effort you put in to making it such a successful day. Please check out the gallery photos below.
