KS2 Easter Triduum Service

Thank you to all the parents who came to see our lovely KS2 children performing in the Easter Triduum Service. The children all sang so beautifully and were a pleasure to watch! The story of the three Holy days was told exceptionally by our readers and actors.

Thank you to all the staff who helped pull it altogether! It was a lovely service.

Thank you to the parents who left comments afterwards. They were all really positive and we will share these with the children. Whilst we understand that some parents wanted to see the Year 3’s more, it was a matter of Health and Safety that they couldn’t be in the Hall with the amount of people we had in there. They enjoyed their part and will look forward to having more of a role in their future years in KS2.

Have a restful Easter break,

Miss Macleod

Ash Wednesday

On Ash Wednesday, the children in KS1 and KS2 participated in a special service. KS2 went into the hall with Father David. We said prayers to God, sung hymns and then we had ashes placed on our heads in the sign of the cross. KS1 also had a service where we said a prayer and Father David placed the ashes on our foreheads.

This is the start of the season of Lent. Lent is a time when you should start to fast, give, prepare and pray. Lent is to remember who you are and to think of others.

Road Safety

On Thursday 24th November Years 1-6 had the opportunity to attend a road safety workshop presented by the School Magic Roadshow. The workshop taught the children all about road safety and there were some magic tricks along the way. Take some time to ask your children about what they learnt. img_0007 img_0008

Children In Need

On Friday 18th November we at St Elizabeth raised money for Children in Need.

BBC Children In Need exists to change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. Their vision is that every child in the UK has a safe, happy and secure childhood and the chance to reach their potential. The money raised is used to support projects working with disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. Children In Need are currently supporting around 2,400 projects that are working with children facing a range of disadvantages. The children and staff at St Elizabeth were encouraged to come to school  wearing the colour yellow or spots. Each year we help to raise money for Children In Need and we aim to raise yet another generous amount this year and were asked to make a donation on the day.

Lamis and Kiko two of our School Parliament members went round on the day to take pictures. Check them out:
