A massive WELL DONE to all the Year 1 and 2 children that took part in the Christmas performance of 'The Mouse in Santa's House' today and yesterday. You are all absolute superstars and we are all so proud of you for putting such enthusiasm into your show. Thank you for being the best as always!

Today we gave some important visitors a sneak preview of the Year 1 and 2 Christmas performance 'A mouse in Santa's house'. Whilst the SVP enjoyed their Christmas party, both classes performed three of the songs from the play to an audience for the first time! Despite their initial nerves, the children did fantastically and we are now so looking forward to the full performance. Thank you for having us at your party!

Last week was a very busy week in Year 1 and 2! We kicked off the week with Remembrance and creating poppy art to add to a liturgy, then on Wednesday we took a walk in the local area to spot the signs of Autumn and some children were lucky enough to spot a squirrel collecting food to store away for Winter! We were also mindful that it was Friendship Week and took some time out to think how we show this everyday at English Martyrs', reminding us of just how amazing our pupils are!

Look at the fantastic art work the Year 2 children have created today with pastels! They wanted to represent the image of Moses leading the Jewish people out of Egypt to freedom.

Welcome to Advent 2, it's a packed half term kicking off with a focus on Judaism this week and then Autumn Watch next week. This week we are looking at the importance of Moses and Abraham to the Jewish faith. In English we are using the text 'Moses in the Bulrushes' and in R.E. we will be looking at how Moses led the people out of Egypt. Ask your child about these stories and what they have learnt about the Jewish faith.
