All of the children have been set a 3 minute challenge each day by our Diocesan Youth Team. Each day the children have been asked to spend 3 minutes in prayer. Each class have been taken on the challenge inside of school but please find the video below if you would like to try it at home.

Our Year 2 and 5 children made a lovely Lenten display in the spiritual garden, where the children can spend time reflecting this Lent,


For Holy week, More Than Dance came in to teach each class a dance through the Easter story. The children had a wonderful time and really enjoyed learning the dances and presenting them in a liturgy at the end of the two days. Thank you so much to More Than Dance for all of their hard work, the children had a fantastic time.

Advent in St Mary’s 

Advent is a very special time of year. Here in St Mary’s the children have been preparing for a very special birth. Each day the children share a reading from the Jesse tree and spend time reflecting in their advent journals and completing the Examen challenge. All KS1 children will have the opportunity to take home the travelling crib, which allows families to share the story of Christmas with the children, using a nativity scene, candle, a book and prayers. Our KS2 children all took home a family advent booklet to share a reading each week with their families throughout advent.
