British Values Week- Law Workshop

On Wednesday 20th March 2019, students from the University of Leicester delivered a law workshop to Y3J. The students explained the importance of British law, as well as discussing the different types of law we have to follow. The children were then encouraged afterwards by the students to create their own laws.  

Science Week- Monday 11th March 2019- Friday 15th March 2019

British Values Week- Hinduism

This week, Y3J discovered that Hindus visit the Mandir to worship. The word mandir comes from the Sanskrit mandira, meaning dwelling place. Y3J had great fun finding out about what the Mandir was like, as well as finding out about the different Hindu Gods and Goddesses.

Carol service

This afternoon, we walked to St John Bosco Church to celebrate Christmas together. We sang Christmas carols, listened to readings from the bible and looked at the lovely nativity tableau. It was a beautiful service in which the children sang brilliantly. Thank you to all the adults who came to support us.

Anti-Bullying Week

The theme of this year’s anti-bullying week was to choose respect over bullying. In Year 3J, we discussed the importance of showing that bullying is a behaviour choice, and that children and young people can set a positive example by opting to respect each other at school, in their homes and communities, and online.

British Values Week: Individual Liberty

In Year 3J, we talked about how we are all different, have individual personalities, things that we prefer and that this is important. We discovered that countries including Britain protect our rights to be individuals and that it is also important that we practice supporting each other to be who we are. Everyone had a great time celebrating the uniqueness of each other this week through lots of role-play and discussion.

The Feast of All Saints

We celebrated the Feast of All Saints today. In Father David’s homily, the children were able to reflect on the qualities of a saint. They recognised that saints are holy people that show their love for God by loving others. A big thank you to the parents/carers that shared our mass today.

Harvest Mass

The whole school gathered together today to thank god for the harvest in a beautiful mass. As Catholics it is important for us to be like Jesus and help those who are less fortunate. It was wonderful to see our school come together as a community and be Good Samaritans by donating food and drink for those in need of our help and support.


Friday 14th September 2018

This morning, KS2 went to Holy Cross Catholic Church to celebrate the school’s feast day. It was a lovely mass and the children behaved, read and sang beautifully. Thank you to the parents/carers that attended the mass.

I would like to welcome all the children into Year 3.  I hope that you’ve had an amazing summer and are looking forward to the year ahead.
