Year 4 Class Worship

Two children in Y4 planned a beautiful class worship based on Pentecost.


Stations of the Cross 2024

Year 6 confidently led the Stations of the Cross liturgy this year. The children visited all stations and listened to Year 6 read about the journey of Jesus to the cross, where he sacrificed himself for us.


Our children across Foundation Stage enjoyed sharing the good news that Jesus is alive! 

We reminded the children that when Jesus died our hearts and Jesus’ friends hearts felt broken. We revealed a broken paper heart. We remembered that on Easter Sunday we discovered that Jesus is alive and our hearts were mended. We worked together to fix our broken heart. We then found out that Jesus went home to his Father in heaven and he left the promise of a special gift. We know that this special gift is the Holy Spirit. We said “the Holy Spirit is a gift that we share. We can’t see it, but we know that it’s there”. It is the love in our hearts. We decorated our paper heart to fill it with the love of the Holy Spirit.


Last Supper led by Year 2



Our EYFS children came together today to find out about what happened to Jesus on Palm Sunday. We re-enacted Jesus entrance into Jerusalem. We then walked laps of our playground to raise money for CAFOD. Well done children, you are growing in love.

Class Worship

Year 1 were blessed to have Year 5 lead a class worship.





One of the Lenten Challenges in F2 was to work together as a team and build our own obstacle course and then travel along it carrying the flour, without spilling it! We showed great teamwork while singing ‘teamwork together’ throughout the activity and to tidy up.





For RE reception have looked at what a celebration is and how the parish family celebrate. We retold the story of the Presentation at the Temple. We have then worked together and created Holy Rood Church in our workshop.





Class Worship

The year RE ambassadors led a lovely class worship in Year 1.



Let’s celebrate our families. We opened another gift to find photographs of our families and a prayer card each. We drew a picture of our family on our prayer card and took it home.


Class Worship

We look forward to and enjoy our Class Worships in KS2.





Feast of the Epiphany

Nursery children found out all about Epiphany and re-enacted the three kings following a star to visit Baby Jesus. We were so pleased how well our children remembered the special story.


EYFS Nativity 

We are so proud of our Foundation Stage children for their amazing nativity performance this morning. They told the story of ‘The hole in the world’ and how God sent a special baby to remind us how to love one another. They were incredible.



KS1 Nativity 

Well done Key Stage One on an amazing production of ‘Fireside Nativity’. The children performed brilliantly and we are all very proud of them.


Christingle 2023

Year 3 led our Christingle Liturgy and did a wonderful job. 



Advent Wreaths

A huge thank you to Mrs Darnbrough and our RE Ambassador team for creating our beautiful wreaths this year!


Class Worship

Year Four have been planning some beautiful worships. Here are a few examples!



To commemorate Remembrance Day, children across school learnt about the day and produced art work linked to the topic to create a whole school display.












Remembrance Service at Shaw Lane

Some children from class 6 were invited to Shaw Lane Sports Club to take part in a Remembrance service to commemorate the soldiers who died in World War 1 and 2 with special reference to those soldiers who attended Barnsley Grammar School and Holgate School.


The children attended a pre visit where they were given more details and made poppies to be displayed on the day.


As part of our Harvest celebration, our families kindly donated produce which were collected by Barnsley Foodbank. We chose the foodbank as they have helped lots of our families this year. Thank you everyone for your support.


Child-Led Worship

Children in class 6 have led some respectful and thoughtful class worships centered around a theme of their choosing. So far this year we have had harvest and the 10 commandments.


St Marie's Cathedral

Class 4 were invited to take part in Mass at Sheffield Cathedral with Bishop Ralph and other schools in the diocese, they made a banner and carried a candle in the procession behind the Bishop.



Creation Story

In F2 we have learned about the creation story, about how God created the world and how he created us. We spoke lots about our names and how we are all special to God. God loves us and he knows our names.




In F2, the children have been ‘welcoming’ each other into the classroom. We have discussed how we can make people feel welcome and have been greeting each other with hugs, high fives, waves, hand shakes and by saying ‘hello’ and ‘welcome’.





Reflection Time

Here are Year 1 thinking about God in the calm of the trees. 


Child-Led Worship

Year Four pupils have really enjoyed their collective worship this week. Two children planned the worship and brought items in from home to make the worship more interactive! 


Ash Wednesday

On Ash Wednesday our Foundation Stage children came together to find out about Lent. We know that Jesus has gone away for 40 days and 40 nights and while he is away he needs our help. We promised to be like Jesus and do his work. We placed purple hearts on our tree as a symbol that we are growing in love. We are looking out for children who are being kind, caring and helpful and praising them for these loving behaviours.


Following our experience of Mother’s Day, our Foundation Stage children came together to tell a story about a mum. We found out about the love Mary had for her son Jesus. We know now that bad things happened to Jesus. We will find out more about this in the coming weeks.


Our Foundation Stage children came together to explore what happened to Jesus on Palm Sunday. They are aware that Jesus has been away for 40 days and 40 nights and they have been trying hard to do his work. We watched a close friend of ours walk away from our circle. We thought about how sad we were and how much we missed him. He came back to us and we felt much happier. We said hello and welcome. We used a new word today. We said “Hosanna”. We role played Jesus entering Jerusalem. We waved our palm leaves and shouting “Hosanna”. We celebrated by sharing hot cross buns.


We came together again today as we found out what happened to Jesus on Good Friday. We used the hearts, which we had placed on our Lenten tree when we promised to be kind, caring and helpful. We followed in Jesus’ footsteps to place them on our Easter garden as a symbol of our love for Jesus. The children showed sadness, care and respect as we did this. We are so proud of them all


Our nursery children have been growing in love throughout Lent.






Mission Together

Mrs Barry came to our school to talk to us about Mission Together. Through our fundraising this year, the money raised will support the work of a care home in South Africa. Red boxes will be sent home with our children for them to donate as many pennies as possible!
