As an integral part of our Catholic ethos, all pupils at Our Lady and St Patrick's are made aware, throughout the school year, of the changes and celebrations relating to the Church’s Liturgical Year.
All of our class and assembly prayer spaces and displays reflect the liturgical colour.
We spend time in our RE lessons looking at the main events in the Church's calendar, and we celebrate many of them together through collective worship.
We enjoy celebrating the key events of the liturgical year in a variety of ways - please have a look below at some of the events we have taken part in together, this year...
Saint George is our Year 1 Class Saint, so the children had lots of fun celebrating St George's Day on 23rd April.
The children heard and read the story of St George and the dragon, and they made masks and dressed up to act out the story - they really enjoyed playing the part of the scary dragon!
They also had some yummy part snacks, to celebrate their special day!
✝️ The whole school took part in quiet reflection today, in our ‘Journey through Holy Week’
✝️ Each class set up their own prayer station in the hall, so that we could follow in Jesus’ footsteps, through ‘The Stations of The Cross’
✝️ It was lovely to spend some quiet time listening to the scripture that tells us of Jesus’ last days on earth, and reflecting on what this means to us 💜
🌴 Year 1 have been learning about Palm Sunday in RE.
🌴 The children thought about how happy the people were to see Jesus riding into Jerusalem on the donkey, and wrote their ideas on their palm leaves.
🌴 Then they waved the palm leaves in the air to welcome Jesus, and act out the story.
