St. Anthony's Day!

 A little late, but here is our report on St. Anthony's Day!

Two weeks ago, we celebrated St. Anthony's Day at school with a special day to reflect on our faith. In Upper School, we had the whole day off-timetable. We spent one hour in each classroom with a different teacher.

In each class, we learned about a different parable of mercy. This year is the Year of Mercy, so we combined our celebration of St. Anthony's Day with our celebrations for the Year of Mercy.

With Miss Bower, we learned the Parable of the Lost Sheep- and made some very cute clay sheep!

With Ms Doyle, we learned the Parable of the Labourers in the Vineyard. We created some fantastic story maps.

With Miss Checker, we learned the Parable of the Yeast. We drew some beautiful and imaginative seed pictures, with the seeds growing into marvellous and creative new things. Each class in the school contributed to each picture, so by the end of the day the pictures had been created by four children from the different classes in Year 5 and 6.

With me, you learned the Parable of the Lost Coin. We discussed the story, then made some beautiful Mexican coins. One side of each coin was made by a child in Year 5 and the other side by a child in Year 6. You can see them all hanging in the window above the stairs to Upper School now.
It was a wonderful day, completed by a special reflection service in the afternoon. Some children read prayers and led our reflection, as a child from each class offered a piece of art/work that had been completed during the day.

Well done, everyone!
