On Wednesday, Mrs Werner came to visit Year 5 to teach us all about the festival of Passover. She told us how she celebrates it with her family and the traditions that she follows every year. She brought in her Seder Plate and we were able to taste some of the foods from the plate which symbolise parts of the story of when the Israelites escaped from slavery in Egypt. Mrs Werner had made masks to represent each of the ten plagues that God sent when Pharaoh refused to let the Israelites go.
The two Road Safety Ambassadors have chosen some road safety signs to put around the school, to make sure the children of St.Brendans RCP Primary School are safe (Article 19). Our new signs will have our school uniform on including our badge. By Elizabeth
LAST WEDNESDAY , WE HAD A SPECIAL MASS WHERE WE RECEIVED ASHES ON OUR FOR-HEADS IN THE SHAPE OF A CROSS. THE ASHES ARE MADE FROM PALM LEAVES THAT WERE BURNT LAST YEAR AFTER PALM SUNDAY. WE RECEIVE ASHES TO REMIND US OF THE DUST THAT GOD MADE US FROM. THE CHAPLAINS ( JUNIOR AND SENIOR ) LEAD THE MASS, READING GOSPELS AND BIDDING PRAYERS. ASH WEDNESDAY IS A SYMBOL OF THE START OF LENT, WHICH IS THE BUILD UP TO JESUS’ DEATH. PARENTS CAME TO WATCH AND RECEIVE THE HOLY ASHES.WE ONLY RECEIVE THE ASHES ONCE A YEAR SO NOW WE HAVE TO WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR TO TAKE THEM AGAIN. BY LUKE W
Hello we are the road safety ambassadors for St. Brendans RCP Primary School. Our Year 6 road safety ambassador is Elizabeth, our Year 5 road safety ambassador is Holly and our job is to make sure the whole school knows how important it is to stay safe on roads.
Year 2 enjoyed mixing their English and computing learning together to create a puppet show set far, far away! We read a fantastic book about online safety called Once Upon A Time Online and then created our very own version of the story. We hope you enjoy it!
