 Hi Everyone,

Below is a link to the Wednesday Word. Please share the Gospel at home. What was Jesus trying to tell us? How will it change the way we act this week?

"Give to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's." What do think Jesus meant for us to understand?

The readings of the previous two weeks told about Jesus explaining that people were not following what God had asked of them. It also told of God inviting all people to follow him, not just a chosen few.

Find the reading in your copy of the Gospel at home and share as a family. 

Send in a photo of you sharing the Gospel at home.                                             

Where do you keep your copy of the Gospel or Bible?

Congratulations: Look who won last weeks Gospel challenge and new set of Rosary Beads.   

    

Take Care and God Bless

Mr O

In this weeks Gospel  Jesus spoke to us about seeds falling on different ground.

With God's support the plants will flourish.

As I came to school today I noticed this in the Church carpark.

The first picture shows a harsh and inhospitable environment.

However with a closer look I found a beautiful plant.

Let's do God's work and be like fertile soil.

Our challenge is to ensure that we help all the  people we meet to flourish like this beautiful flower.

Mr O

Hello Reception

I hope that you are all having a good week. I have seen lots of lovely sandwich making this week!!!!!!

Activity 

How about making a fruit salad 

What will you use?

How will you make it?

Draw or write the recipe

You can also find out about where your fruit comes from. Does it grow on trees or a bush and how long does it take to grow.

Tuesday 30th June 2020

Hello to you all and happy Tuesday.

I hope that you all had a good Monday. Why not try this fun activity below.

A great way to demonstrate the process of freezing and melting.

Frozen eggs

You will need flowers from the garden, empty egg shells, water and your freezer.

Push a few flowers into the hole in the egg. Add water and freeze. It is easier if you place the eggs in an egg box to freeze.

Once frozen, remove the egg shells to reveal your beautiful egg!!!!!!

Have a lovely day

Love 

Miss Cheater

Monday 29th June is the feast of St Peter and St Paul, we would invite children to investigate the life of St Paul and share their information on Google Classroom.

Above are 4 images of St Paul, all are different but have similarities.

What is similar and what does it represent?

Below is a link to a simple animation about Paul’s life.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0p0W_Zbt1s

 Please share this prayer to St Paul with your friends and family. 

St Paul is a great example of how with God's help we can all change for the better.

Prayer to Saint Paul the Apostle

O Glorious Saint Paul, after persecuting the Church you became by God’s grace its most zealous Apostle. To carry the knowledge of Jesus, our Divine Saviour, to the uttermost parts of the earth, you joyfully endured prison, scourging, stoning, and shipwreck, as well as all manner of persecutions culminating in the shedding of the last drop of your blood for our Lord Jesus Christ. Obtain for us the grace to labour strenuously to bring the faith to others and to accept any trials and tribulations that may come our way. Help us to be inspired by your Epistles and to partake of your indomitable love for Jesus, so that after we have finished our course we may join you in praising Him in Heaven for all eternity. Amen.

 

God Bless 

Mr O

Happy Friday Reception

I can't believe that another week of home schooling  has nearly come to an end. It  feels like only yesterday I was saying 'happy Monday'!!!!!!!

Hello Reception

I really enjoyed looking at all of your name writing yesterday using different materials. You are very creative. A very big well done for continuing to send in your amazing work on the Google Classroom. 

I have found a lovely story called 'While we can't hug'. Hedgehog and Tortoise want to give each other a big hug (they are best friends) but they're not allowed to touch. During these strange times of social distancing, this is a lovely story to show your love in different ways.

https://youtu.be/2PnnFrPaRgY

After you have listened to the story, why not draw a picture for your friends :)

Please read Mr O's message below relating to this weeks Gospel. Remember to follow the link for a copy of the Wednesday word where you will find lots of fun activities.

In this weeks Gospel, Jesus talks to his Father. Explaining that he has completed his task on earth. Jesus tells his Father that he has shared his message with us and we understand. The gospel reflects many of the things we say at mass in our profession of our faith through the Nicene Creed.

Take some time  this week to reflect on the Nicene Creed and our beliefs.

Please follow the link for a copy of the Wednesday word. It has lots of fun activities for your children to do.

Please note the link has the Wednesday word for the next three weeks. I will re-post it next Wednesday just to remind you

Hello Reception

I hope that you are all having a good week. Well done for continuing to send in work on the Google Classroom.  It always makes me so happy to see your wonderful work, videos and smiley faces. Keep up this amazing work Reception!!!!!

I was thinking about how you could bring at little bit of our Reception class routine into your homes, so how about making a special person box like the one we have in class and a special person poster. You can write all your friends names, cut them out and put them in the box. You can then choose two names from the box daily and display them. It will be little reminder of what we do in class. You can even let me know who you have chosen. Remember, no looking though!!!!!!!!! You can send me messages over on the Google Classroom.

I'm off to look at your amazing work now, so have a lovely day and stay safe. 

Miss you all

Good morning and happy Tuesday to you all. I hope that you all had a good day yesterday.

Get creative today!!!!!!!!!

During these strange times, it's important that we remember the following quote

"Remember what's important! Be together, play together, talk together"

Todays activity

Create a piece of art from objects you find in the garden or around your home.

Logs, chopping boards, pieces of fabric, paving stones or playdough can act as a canvas.

I look forward to seeing your masterpieces.

See you over in the Google Classroom.

I would encourage all families to join in the Rosary. It is simple to register on the parish website see the link below.

This week, I have 2 stars of the week and they go to two boys who have been working so hard and have sent me so much work on the Google Classroom. They are Matty and Marcon. I am so very proud of you both. I would also like to say a massive well done to all the children who have been completing their activities and sending in their amazing work. I am so proud of all of you.

 

The world around us

On your walk today, listen carefully to the sounds around you. With less traffic on the roads, we can hear some lovely sounds.

I'm going to take Pebbles for a walk soon and I will be doing the same. I wonder what I will hear?

Good morning to my amazing Reception class and your families.

 

 

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT. WHO IS THE STAR OF THE WEEK???????

I have never been so proud of my Reception class as what I am right now. Your work has been incredible and it really has put the biggest smile on my face during these very strange times. Reading your amazing work, watching your videos and being able to see your happy, smiley faces really does brighten up my day, so please keep up this amazing work. 

I have found it so, so hard this week to give just one star of the week, so here it goes!!!!!

Drum roll please!!!!!!!!!

Milena, Olivia, Alexander, Rose, Matty, Marcon, Hamish, Maya, Marco, Olivier S, Oliver N, Kabnate, Igor, Anna, Dawid and PJ.

From the 'Rock band' members of Hamish, Milena, Igor and Oliver N,  to Alexander the pizza chef (after reading Pip's Pizza). To Olivia the MasterChef for cooking dinner, to Marco the problem solving boy who had to work out with his mum how to rescue the Super Mario disc from the WII console!!!! To amazing writers Rose, Maya, Marcon and Matty, to my prayer children Anna and Dawid, to Kabnate for thinking of her own number problems and to PJ and Olivier S for your creative skills!!!!! 

These are just some of the activities these children have been up to. They have produced so much work and I am so very proud of them all. 

I think that we should start up our own 'Rock band' Reception. Your musical skills are amazing!!!!!!

Have a lovely day, stay safe and I will see you over in the Google Classroom.

Miss you

Love Miss Cheater xx

Hi Reception and happy Thursday to you all :)

I am really enjoying seeing all of your lovely work. You are working so hard during these strange times and I am so proud of you.

It's always nice to help others, especially your family, so your challenge today is to help your mum or dad make lunch.  You could even have a 'Teddy bears' picnic. Tell me what you have made by drawing a picture or taking photos.

I'm off to the Google Classroom now to look at your amazing work. Please remember that work is due in tomorrow and I will be announcing 'Star of the week' in the morning!!!!

How was his arrival different to a King?

What did the crowds shout?

What did they do?

 

The Passover

Exodus 12:14 , Matt:26:17,  Luke 22:7

Jesus arrived in Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover.

What was Jesus remembering when celebrating passover?

How did Jesus and the apostles celebrate passover?

How do we as Catholics ,remember these events of the in our lives ?

How do Jewish people celebrate the Passover today?

What did Jesus do to show he was the servant King?

The Greatest Commandment

What does Jesus say is the greatest Commandment?

God made you and God made me,

He made the world for us to see.

God loves you and long ago,

He sent his son to tell us so.

Jesus showed us many things,

To love and share and dance and sing.

To learn and pray, to help and care,

He promised he'd always be there

He died but then came back to life,

Let's celebrate for he's alive

Amen

Have a go at making your own puzzle by cutting up a picture form a cereal box, old posters,, magazine covers, colouring sheets or you can draw your own picture to cut up.  You can make it as challenging as you like depending on how many pieces you cut it into!!

(Parents, this will help your child's coordination and concentration skills)

Once you have finished cutting up your picture, see how long it takes you to put the puzzle back together again. Set a challenge with your family!! Perhaps you can record your time on a piece of paper. 

I would like to say a big thank you for all the lovely e mails and photos being sent in. It's so lovely to see you all.
