First Worship Council Assembly - Harvest Festival

Today the New Worship council gave the school a lovely assembly on the Harvest Festival. All the years took part and it was so lovely to see the older children help the younger children with their parts.

As well as talking about the theme of Harvest festival the Worship council impressed upon the school community the need to bring in a small contribution to the Food Bank fund. If every child in the school brought in a single item of food, the food bank would receive a much needed boost to its supplies.

Thank you Worship Council.

 

Stations of the Cross 🙏🏻

 

Today as part of our Holy Week celebrations we reflected on the Stations of the Cross. The children all listened as each station was read out and responded to a small prayer. It was a lovely and moving celebration.

LENTEN CELEBRATION 

 

Today the whole school delivered a celebration service where each class discussed how they have been learning about Lent. They celebrated their work through pictures, prayers,art work and song. It was a lovely service and the children’s work was wonderful to see.

MISSION WEEK 2017

Mr Kelly introduced our very special Mission Week with the theme 'This Little Light of Mine' with an interactive and fascinating assembly...he even invited two of his very special friends to join us!

 

The children are looking forward to the upcoming events of the week, where they will have a chance to reflect on their faith in a variety of ways - including the prayer room, the whole school procession, the special Mass being led at the end of the week by Father David, sharing scripture and prayers, special activities in school...

 

YEAR 5

 

On Wednesday year 5 had time in the prayer room to talk about friendship and love. We talked about caring for each other as a class, how we all work together as a team  , one big family. We discussed favourite parts of the bible that showed us how through Jesus' example we can all walk together and love one another.

Time with Mr Kelly in year 5.

Religious Education

RE fulfils the requirements of the Religious Education Curriculum Directory as published by the Bishops of England and Wales. The RE curriculum at Holy Family follows the Diocesan approved scheme ‘Come and See’, and doctrine is taught in accordance with the teachings of the Catholic Church. The School aims for the Christian growth of its children in their own faith and in their awareness of the world around them.

 

Respect for other faiths and cultures is part of our mission and the teaching of other cultures and religions is an important part of our programme within the context of the requirements of the Curriculum Directory. Pupils will be taught about the integrity of other faiths and not as comparative religion. Pupils will learn about the beliefs, expression and celebration, living and belonging, of the principal religions in Great Britain.

 

School Masses, class Masses, daily prayers and assemblies are central to our worship. The school works closely with the Parish priest and the parish to develop the spiritual life of pupils and their families.
