Full, pull, push, says and our.

The parish family gathers at Mass to share Jesus’ meal; the celebration of the Last Supper.  The parish family also comes together to celebrate at other times (coffee mornings, parish dances, quiz nights, shared meals, carol services, barbecues).  Talk about the occasions when they may occur, Christmas, the feast day of the saint to whom the church is dedicated, Pentecost etc. Use the picture from Church’s Story 2 pages 22-23 talk about what is happening and why you think people are happy?  How are they sharing God’s love?  Use speech bubbles to show what people could be saying to each other as they celebrate together.

Fairtrade Fortnight Activities

Each year our school takes part in Fairtrade Fortnight. We discuss what Fairtrade means and complete many fun activities linked to Fairtrade; play games, bake with Fairtrade products, host a ‘Big Brew’ in the school hall and sometimes have a Fairtrade swap day.  This Fairtrade Fortnight we will come together to learn about, and celebrate, the people who grow our food and drink and explore the this years theme ‘Climate, Fairtrade and You’.  Through completing some of the activities today, I hope that the children  will have the opportunity to discover how their choices as individuals can make a difference to the lives of people around the world and the planet we share. #ChooseTheWorldYouWant
