Join us for our Easter Reflection

Don’t forget - school is open up to and including Wednesday 1st April 2015. Please join us at 2pm on Wednesday 1st April in the Cathedral for our annual Holy Week meditation on the Passion of Jesus. Boste Class (Year 3) and More Class (Year 5) have been especially hard at work preparing our meditation this year, and all children and staff have been enthusiastically rehearsing the music. As well as showing your support for the children, coming along to our meditation will be a good way for everybody to reflect on the mysteries of Holy Week and the joy of Easter. Hope to see you there :-)


Talking of Holy Week and Easter, here are the Holy Week and Easter service times for Lancaster Cathedral:

School Closure (final reminder)

Cathedral School is Closed on Tuesday 17th March 2015

In thanksgiving for the life of our wonderful friend and teacher, Mrs Robinson, Cathedral school is not open today. School will be open as usual tomorrow, Wednesday 18th March. We ask all our children to enjoy this tiny extra holiday as a celebration of Mrs Robinson, who was loved and cherished by all in our school.

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen.

CAFOD: One Climate One World

one climate one world

Year Six have been helping us all to reflect on how we can change our lives in small ways every day to help tackle climate change, just like our brothers and sisters throughout the globe are doing. In their assembly this morning, Plessington Class and Miss Patton inspired us all to CUT IT OUT this Lent. Special thanks to CAFOD Schools and Susan Kambalu for inspiring the teachers to bring CAFOD’s message of loving our world through prayer and practice into school.

From the CAFOD assembly:

Let us pray together

Creator God,
Your world is a wonderful and beautiful place,
Full of variety, full of wonder, full of life!
This is God’s world: teach us to love it!

Sometimes we mess things up.
We can be selfish and irresponsible.
This is God’s world: help us to respect it!

Teach us to care for your world.
Help us to build a world that is filled with your goodness.
This is God’s world: help us to grow it!

Through our prayer
And our learning with our sisters and brothers across the world
Unite us as we work to build a better world.
This is God’s world: teach us to love it!

Spider Slug Snail

In Clitherow Class, we’ve been exploring the rhythmic value of crotchets (slugs), quavers (spiders) and minims (snails). We’ve even composed some of our own rhythmic patterns.

Try to clap the rhythms of our compositions.
