Fr John came to visit us today. We had planned lots of questions to ask him about his vocation of being a priest.  We then went on to sing some songs together, show him our classroom and even taste some bread from Mass.  We had a great time and learnt so much about what it is like to be a priest.  Could this be our vocation?

Nursia Nativity - It's a Baby

All the children were totally amazing in our class nativity performance.  They sang so beautifully and were real professionals.We are sp proud of you!

Diwali - Multi Faith Week

 

As part of multi faith week, we learnt about the Hindu celebration of Diwali.  We read the story of Rama and Sita and made Rangoli patterns.  Some of our parents came to help us!  

Monster Dance

We have been dancing and moving to music based on our class story 'Bedtime for Monsters' by Ed Vere.  We had such fun acting out the story!  We rode on bikes, moved through mud, climbed mountains and walked through a spikey forest.  We did most of this with our tongues hanging out because we were hungry monsters!

Something strange in Nursia Class

 

When we arrived at school today we found somme foot prints.  We were very excited and looked to see where they went.  We looked at them closely to find any clues of who might have left them!
