We enjoyed a Viking feast of cottage cheese, plums, honey and bread and butter. Mrs Huggins was our King! She led our class to victory in the battle. We listened to Viking music and stories of Gods from some of the children.

Many Congratulations to Father Desmond 1

At the end of our Advent Mass, we presented Father Desmond with a card from the school with lots of words of congratulations. Father Desmond is turning 50 very soon and he is also celebrating being a priest for 20 years!

Christmas Extravaganza!

We enjoyed celebrating Christmas at Holy Family School with a big fair! We made and sold 2019 calendars and they nearly all went! Father Christmas visited! A dance troop performed on stage! The choir sung their hearts out! The kitchen was busy with yummy delights! Lots of prizes were won! We really enjoyed ourselves especially the face painting stall!

A day of great joy!

We started off the day donating money to Cafod for wearing a Christmas jumper. We then watched KS1 performing their nativity, Lights Camel Action! It was brilliant and very funny! We then enjoyed a delicious Christmas dinner made by the wonderful kitchen staff. Finally, we watched a very funny pantomime called Robin Hood.

He's behind you!

We cheered! We booed! We clapped! We cheered! Robin Hood married Maid Marion and they all lived happily ever!
