First Holy Communion Final Arrangements

A reminder for the parents of the children making their First Holy Communion on Saturday, 5th of June 2021.

 

We ask that children arrive at the Parish Centre, no later than 30 minutes before the start of the Service. Children only, will be permitted into the Parish Centre where they will have individual photographs taken. They will then process from the Centre to the Church (weather permitting). Parents should make their way to the Church and to their allocated family pew, which will be clearly labelled.

When receiving the Eucharist, the children will approach the Altar individually then return to their seats.

Family members will receive the Eucharist after the final blessing then exit the church following the one way system. In doing so we ask that you adhere strictly to the guidance and maintain 2M distance at all times.

Families will not be able to return to the Church for photographs as cleaning and preparations will be underway for the next Mass.

As the restrictions continue, sadly we will not be able to follow traditions and have a celebratory tea in the hall this year.  Children are free to leave after the Mass.

Thank you for your continued support, patience and understanding. We look forward to working together to make it a memorable day for all.

P5 Enjoying Shape Week

The focus of this week’s learning in Maths has been shape.

We had fun and also learned lots of new facts.

We found some shape related vocabulary in a pretty tricky Wordsearch…

We learned about isosceles, equilateral, scalene and right angled triangles and got some practice in using a protractor to measure angles.

We studied Wassily Kandinsky who liked to use 2D shapes in his artwork and even had a go at our own Kandinsky inspired art.

The activity we enjoyed the most was making nets of 3D shapes…
