Daily Update - 1st May

Happy May Day! The week has flown past again and hopefully you've all been finding enough things to keep the family busy and occupied.


Mrs Lindfield's reading of Mog today was delightful and on Monday, we have a surprise visitor reading the Story of the Day - it will be live on the website/ YouTube at 6am! Also starting next week, Mrs Metcalfe will be reading "The Twits" by Roald Dahl and as it's a longer story, she will upload one section every day.


This Sunday is traditionally known as Good Shepherd Sunday, when the gospel moves from the physical events of the resurrection to starting to prepare for Jesus' ascension into heaven and the birth of the church. The focus is on Jesus as the shepherd who looks after his flock - attached is a family liturgy service you may wish to use. Why not join a live-stream Mass on Sunday - here is the link to Liverpool Catholic Cathedral, the first cathedral built in England in the new style: https://www.liverpoolmetrocathedral.org.uk/


Our little group of children at school with Miss Waters have come up with a great challenge for you all! Watch it here and then send in your responses. They would love to see if you can do it as well as them.
