Some of our favourite past Liturgical Celebrations …

April 2021 - Easter 

As part of our Easter celebrations, our Reception children made their very own Easter Gardens. The Easter Gardens helped the children to show what they have learnt about Holy Week and the events of Good Friday and Easter Sunday in particular. The children then used the Easter Gardens to share their learning with their parents.

This was followed by an at-home Easter Garden blessing which the school made ‘blessing kits’ for and a YouTube video to support.

As a whole school, we have also been celebrating the Easter season and sharing the joy of Christ’s resurrection with one another.  Fr Peter joined us in school to celebrate our first ‘live streamed’ virtual Mass from the school chapel.

March 2021 - Lent - Walk of Witness 

To help us understand the wonder of Jesus’ sacrifice for us all, we carried out our own Walk of Witness. A Walk of Witness is when a group of people carry a wooden cross, just like Jesus did after his sentencing, and share reflections, prayers and moments of silent contemplation along the way to help you better understand the events of Jesus’ journey to death in order to make the greatest sacrifice of all.

 

December 2020 - Advent - Walking Nativity 

Using our school grounds and woodland, children followed the journey of Mary and Joseph as they travelled to Bethlehem meeting important characters from the Nativity story along the way and stopping to reflect on key parts of the story. This was beautifully lead by our Year 6 pupils and each child in our school created a decoration for the different stops along the way. As part of the Walking Nativity, there was the opportunity to support the work of the Watford New Hope Trust to help homeless families and individuals over Christmas. The children, like the 3 Wise Men, carried gifts with them the whole way through their journey. At the end, they placed them down as an offering, just like the 3 Wise Men did. These were then collected by Watford New Hope Trust and distributed to those most in need.
