We say a fond farewell to our Y6 who are leaving the school on Friday. This week, we celebrated their time at the school with a leavers mass and assembly. Good luck and God bless in your future from everyone at St. Mary’s Blackbrook!

Uncategorised Comments Off on Other Faiths’ Week
Last week, the school had an other faiths’ week. The infant children learnt all about the religion of Hinduism and the junior children about the religion of Islam. Each year group looked at different aspects of the faith. Children found this most interesting and showed great respect for each religion. The KS1 children enjoyed a carousel of activities where they tried some different Hindu celebrations including hand painting, tasting food, Indian food and making diwa lamps.

On Friday 7th December, St. Mary’s Blackbrook celebrated the feast of Our Lady Immaculate, who the school is named after. We had a whole school assembly where we learnt about the visitation of Mary from the Angel Gabriel and the difficulties that Mary faced. Together we said the Hail Mary.
Following this, each class gathered around a picture of Our Lady on their worship tables, they were presented with a prayer card designed by Elizabeth from Year 6 and we all celebrated with a drink and a biscuit.
