St Mary Magdalen's Catholic Primary School

Let the light of Jesus shine through, in all we think and say and do.

This morning Reception and Year One went to St. Mary Magdalen's Church for baby Mary's baptism.  Thank you to Father Michael for making it such a informative baptism, we learnt to much about being part of GOD's family.  We celebrated after with cake and juice!

We have had a very creative time during this week.  We have been looking at the art work of "Andy Goldsworthy" and as you can see the children have been really inspired by this.  Jayne and Shivani visited us from Kingsfold Library and told us about their services as well as treating us to reading a few of their books. The children really enjoyed this.  The children also had the chance to share their own Baptism photographs which resulted in much conversation, the photographs are now displayed in class.  We will be visiting church next week to see Father Michael, he will be giving us a real experience of a Baptism and how this is so important to being part of the family of Jesus.

Thank you all so much for the Autumn leaves you have sent it.  The children have had a wonderful time sharing the book "Leaf Man" and making their own leaf art.

We have had great fun during our week learning about Judaism, we made a HUGE Menorah with our paper chains.

Reception's busy week

The children have now completed their first full week as a whole class and what a busy week it has been.  We have done PE, (a number of times!) we have learnt how special we all are to GOD, we've had whole class maths and phonics lessons and finished the week with a lovely afternoon of energetic stations to build our core strength.  

Please enjoy looking at the photographs; this is a great chance to view them with your child as they can act as a prompt  to help you find out what they have been busy doing in school!!
