Celebrating Advent across our schools

The schools in our Trust have all been celebrating Advent

A Christmas Prayer

Loving Father, help us remember the birth of Jesus,
that we may share in the song of the angels,
the gladness of the shepherds, and worship of the wise men.
Close the door of hate and open the door of love all over the world.
Let kindness come with every gift and good desires with every greeting.
Deliver us from evil by the blessing which Christ brings,
and teach us to be merry with clear hearts.
May the Christmas morning make us happy to be thy children,
and Christmas evening bring us to our beds with grateful thoughts,
forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus’ sake. Amen

Carol Singing at Sainsbury's

On Tuesday 13th December the Choir went to Sainsbury's to sing Christmas Carols to the shoppers.

We were there for about an hour and a half and we managed to raise £146 for CAFOD. At half time Mrs Scott gave us chocolate dogs and then we carried on singing.We really enjoyed singing Carols to the shoppers, lots of people said they could hear us from all around the store.

Everyone in school took a part in singing Christmas songs which we had recorded then made into a CD.

Year 6 finished off with All I want for Christmas so we could all join in and dance.
