1st May – Feast of St Joseph the Worker

Today we celebrate our school patron. We would love you and your family to spend sometime today or in the following week reflecting on St Joseph and thinking of ways we can follow his example. Look at the information below. When you have completed the prayer and the pledge please share them with your class teacher.

Pentecost Term Week 3 (W.B. 03.05.20)

Along with the St Joseph the Worker activity, you have an activity to complete which is based on Pentecost. 

For this learning focus, you will be retelling the story of Pentecost by creating a comic strip.

There is an example of a comic strip within the document below and a template which you can download or you could create your own using a ruler in your home learning book. 


As always, we would love to see anything you create!

Pentecost Term- Week 1

St George's Day- Thursday 23rd April 2020


This Thursday is St George's Day. For your RE activity this week, we would like you to find out about St George and why he is important to us in our country. There is a clip below to get you started with your research. 

Once you have done this, your activity is to write key words or phrases to describe how St George lived out the Catholic faith on a St George's flag. For example- kindness or loyalty might be important key words. You can either print the flag off from below, add them directly onto SeeSaw on Thursday or draw your own flag out using a ruler.
