Football vs St Mary’s and St Benedict’s

The Year 5/6 football team played their first game in the Catholic League yesterday against St Mary’s and St Benedict’s.

It was a terrific game from start to finish with both teams creating plenty of chances. However, the team were really up for this game and battled their way through the first half leading 1 – 0 at the break. This was thanks to a fantastic team goal that was finally finished off by Kai but also due to two very good saves from Pierce.

In the second half the team carried on battling throughout the game and no matter how hard St Mary’s and St Benedict’s tried either our defence or Pierce in Goal kept them out. This allowed us to break forward and score two more goals, one from Harry and another from Kai.

Well played everyone and a well deserved victory.

Player of the Match: Pierce (Y6)

Brighten up for Harvest 2018

What a wonderful celebration of harvest but also our wonderfully generous school community. We brightened up our school in our multi colours and brought our food donations as well as CAFOD donation with us. We took part in an assembly to allow the children to see where all their money goes to. We spoke about the importance of sharing the message of peace and not just giving our money but giving our prayers to others.

The chaplaincy team worked hard all day from bagging up all the donations, handing out prayer cards and counting our total amount raised. They also made a very special trip to the Coventry Food bank and got to walk around and see the different things that the foodbank needs as well as find out more about how we can help further.

The winners of the competition will be announced in the assembly on Monday.

The total raised so far stands at just over £190! So thank you very much!

Many thanks for all your donations, they are really appreciated.

Have a lovely weekend
Miss Corkerry

Autumn Art!

We loved using autumn leaves to make pieces of artwork in Year 2! We used animals as our inspiration and created parts of their bodies with the leaves we collected from the playground.

POP ART

We’ve begun our Pop Art Unit by looking at the work of Andy Warhol and created our own ‘everyday object collage’ inspired paintings. We think they look great!
