It has been a very hectic last week before we break up for the Christmas holidays, but no matter how busy we have been our hearts and minds are focused on preparing for the coming of our Lord. We hope that you can join us for our final Advent Mass in the hall on Friday morning at 8:15am .

Year 6 have worked extremely hard and enjoyed studying Charles Dickens Christmas classic, ‘A Christmas Carol’, each producing some creative writing and wonderful balanced arguments to convince Scrooge to join in with the Christmas celebrations. This Friday they will recreate Mr Fezziwig’s Christmas party complete with Victorian games and dances!

The Christmas bake off was a great success, the cakes looked amazing but the fun had making them was joyous to behold! i hope you enjoy eating them over the Christmas period, I know they taste amazing as the children made a huge cake for all the staff and guess what? Not much is left!

Finally I hope you all have a wonderful and thank you for the support you are giving your children during their final year at Our Lady’s.
