Virtual Christmas Concert 2021
The Music Department has been working hard to record and produce a virtual Christmas concert. Although it’s a shame not to perform to a live audience, it has still been a fun experience. Each group has performed their own piece and the concert ends with many performing together in a fun festive finale.
Pour yourself a drink, get the mince pies ready and enjoy ‘a touch of Christmas’.
During the last week of term while they were isolating at home, 8ab French made videos about their daily routine. Pets and teddy bears star in these amazing videos!
Over a period of 10 weeks (to the end of March) we have joined forces with our canteen who have devised a selection of recipes and areas of baking to focus on – very much “Great British Bake Off” style.
Each section runs for 2 weeks and it is simple base recipes which students, staff and parents may well want to use at home to develop new skills or simply have some fun in the kitchen.
Week 1 starts on Monday 25th January 2021 with Bread but you can join in when you wish.
We are asking students to send in photos to the School on the email firstname.lastname@example.org of their baking for that week.
The Winners of each round will be in with a chance to win one of two prizes at the end of the Challenge.
The judges for our school are Phil – Head chef in the canteen and Mrs Walker – Head of Food Technology
Students can use their own recipes, not just the ones sent in the pack.
Week one kicks off with bread and the details will be shared with pupils via the school website and form teachers.
Below are a range of resources to use in TCT with form groups.
The resources have been divided into the categories: WATCH & READ.
WATCH contains short video reflections. READ has similar resources but in a format to be read by a member of the class.
Reflections – Thoughts on Scripture and the Saints
Prayers – Prayers from Catholic Tradition
At the end of the day, a week, or a half term it is recommended to do an Examen. This is a prayerful reflection of the day, that helps us to grow in gratefulness and learn from the moments that challenge us. You can listen to a version of an Examen Prayer below:
Examen prayers are usually prayed at the end of the day. At other times, pupils should be guided to think back over the day before, the past week or another short period of time.
Recommendations from other staff*
Praying Each Day – Daily Catholic prayers from De La Salle Brothers.
*Please note that if using other resources or a more spontaneous approach to prayer, the School Resource should still be read and a whole-school focus incorporated into the prayer time regularly.
