Our children who had participated and voted in the Fantastic Book Awards, got to listen and meet the winning author Dave Lowe this week at Deepdale School. Dave Lowe is originally from the Midlands but now lives in Australia. His book Incredible Dadventure was chosen by us and other schools as the best book out of six titles read by our schools.
The children really enjoyed listening to Dave about his life and career and loved his funny stories.
Year 6 visit to Cardinal Newman College.
Year Three performed a roleplay about the meaning of Pentecost. We made flaming headbands and wore them with costumes to act out the story. Ajwa said ” I like it when we dress up and make it real, it helps me to understand what it felt like for the disciples and if you see the story you remember it.
We have had a wonderful Eid celebration in school today. Thank you to all the families for your generosity in food and sweet donations – it made for a very exciting lunch. Our cook Debbie made a fantastic curry to complement the lunch.
Everybody helped our Muslim friends to celebrate this wonderful occasion – Eid Mubarak!
Congratulations to Julia and Lucasz who made their first holy communion today with children from our parish schools.
A beautiful celebration of a most special sacrament.
