This week in Ward Class 

 

 

Children were asked over the weekend to create information leaflets about keeping safe during bonfire night and also to create their very own model fireworks. Well done to all who completed this!

 

On Monday I opened my door to lots of Anglo Saxons, armed with shields and swords, I was worried. Only to find out they were Anglo Saxons in disguise! A huge well done to all children who used their learning from the Anglo Saxon Visit to create their own shields and swords. 

 

 

 

The Mother of Inclusive Love

Children had the opportunity to handle and discuss the statue that was left as a gift by Father George this summer, who was the Parish Priest at St. Mary's. The children looked at how the statue had been hand carved by young people with disabilities at the Centre of the Dove in Cambodia and found out that this particular statue had been hand carved by a girl named Rady, from Takeo Province, in Cambodia, who was looking at using her skills learnt at the centre to support herself and her family.

The statue allows us to see children, together with Jesus under the safety of Mary's cloak. This symbolises the great gift of love that we receive from God. 

 

 

Image result for Ten ten theatre

Children this week watched a performance by Ten Ten Theatre, who are an award winning Theatre Company who has an underlying Christian ethos rooted in the Catholic tradition.  The inspirational performance allowed the children to see how a young girl developed a close relationship with her Grandfather after he fell ill. Her Gradfather, who had seen first hand how the Nazi regime horrendously treat the Jews in Poland, he then used this experience to teach his Granddaughter to treat everyone fairly.
