Our Catholic School

Sci-Fi and RE Day

(3 images)

This week, 8 pupils from Year 5 were lucky enough to travel through space and time to Keynsham to take part in a Sci-fi and RE day run by Clifton Diocese. Working alongside other schools in the area, they learnt all about how it's not our abilities, but the choices we make that make a real difference. From Supergirl to Harry Potter - they learnt that everyone has the power within them to make change and do good in this world. The children even taught the rest of the class what they'd learnt the following day! Year 5 believe they can change the world - what superheros!

Parables

(4 images)

This week, Year 5 have enjoyed learning about some parables from the Gospels. We learnt that Jesus used hidden meanings in them to help describe the Kingdom of God and thought about how we can learn from them as Christians today. Live from Bible News, our reporters described events at the local farm where seeds that fell on good soil produced this year's biggest harvest. We decided we wanted to be like the good soil. We want to hear the word of God and put it into action in our lives everyday.

Pilgrimage Walk

(21 images)

Our Chaplaincy team were privileged to take part in The Year of Mercy Pilgrimage walk to Downside Abbey. The breath-taking home of the Benedictine Monks (since 1605) was a fitting place for their spiritual journey. They had an opportunity to meet children from other schools of the Clifton Diocese, reflecting on the importance of mercy in our lives. They entered into the church through the Miseri Cordiae Porta (the door of mercy) for a joyous service of light. They were shown the treasures of the Downside Abbey, visited the relics of one of the British Saints - Oliver Plunkett. They finished their day by enjoying a friendly game of football with children from Our Lady of the Rosary and St John's, Bath. 'The sun shone throughout and Our Lady's children thought we were fun, we hope to meet them soon for more adventures. Verdict: we would like to go on a trip like this every Thursday!'
