A huge well done to all the children for such a wonderful Harvest Service on Friday. There was some fabulous singing, readings, poems and prayers. Special thanks must go to those parents and carers who so generously donated food items which have now been passed on to Sacred Heart Food Bank and St Wilfrid’s. It was lovely to see so many people join us and we hope everyone enjoyed the service.
On Maundy Thursday, the children presented Christ’s Journey to the Cross. The children themselves, wrote and prepared the script, which was accompanied by some beautiful singing, mime and readings. We hope that all those who were able to join us on the day were able to reflect on the events of Holy Week as the children presented the story with such reverence and respect.
What a fantastic week it has been at Sacred Heart this week! From erupting volcanoes to square-shaped bubbles, elephant toothpaste to mad professors, we’ve seen it all this week! All the children enjoyed a visit to Manchester Museum of Science and Industry as well as hosting an Open Morning for parents and carers to come and join in the fun! 🙂 Special thanks must go to Mrs Barden, our Science coordinator, who has spent the past eight months planning Science Week.
We would also like to extend huge thanks to the many parents, carers and friends who have supported the children in any way this week. 👍🏻
Here are just a few pictures from Science Week; check out the individual class blogs for lots more.
It has been a busy end to the term at Sacred Heart. KS2 began our celebrations with their lovely presentation of the Christmas stories. This was followed by our younger children, who staged the Nativity beautifully.
There have been Christmas parties galore and a wonderful Christmas dinner prepared by Anya, Rachel and Donna in the kitchen; Radio Sheffield came to interview some of the children about our Reverse Advent Calendar which each class has been doing.
On Thursday we had our Advent Showcase where the children sang Christmas songs which were both amusing and at times brought a tear to the eye! There were examples of the children’s work on display for everyone to admire.
Today was Christmas Jumper day and there were some fabulous examples out there!
We ended our year with quiet reflection, thinking about the true meaning of Christmas while listening to the Christmas story itself.
The support from our parents and carers has, as usual, been wonderful and we thank you for this. Your generosity with the Reverse Advent Calendar in particular will make such a difference to lives of the needy within our community.
We would like to wish everyone in the community of Sacred Heart a Peaceful Christmas and a Happy New Year.
The children have had a fantastic fun day of activities themed around Roald Dahl. The costumes looked as wonderful as ever and there was a chocolate bar prize for the winner in each class.-Thank you to Mrs Roche for judging for us.Y1 enjoyed making their own ‘medicine’ for grandma, whilst Y5 were trying to problem solve using sweets! Y2 have made some birds nest cakes and there have been many other exciting activities happening around school, including the giraffe, the pelly and ‘me’ (monkey) who sat in the dining room at lunch time with the children. Well done to everyone! We hope you all had fun
Here are some pictures from today.
On Tuesday 28th June we held KS1 Sports. It was a warm and sunny morning with many parents, grandparents and other visitors who came along to watch and support the children. Everyone had a great time!
On Friday 24th June, the children had a surprise visit by non other than the famous Olypmic athlete, Daley Thompson. Class 2 had chosen him as their athlete to research for the summer theme, Dream of 2016. The Y2 children wrote letters to Daley and he thought it would be great to come and meet them all!
Daley very kindly presented our Star of the Week certificates, he presented the Maths Challenge trophy which our team won this week and he had his photograph taken with every class. Daley then spent lots of time with Class 2, teaching them how to throw a beanbag like the shot put and showing them how to throw the javelin. He also answered lots of their questions.
It was a very exciting morning and we are very grateful to Daley for taking time out of his busy schedule to spend time with us. Here are some pictures of the morning’s events.
This afternoon, Holly and Helen, accompanied by Mrs Kelly and Mrs Templar, went to the Winter Gardens for the launch of the Little Herd. We found our Nelly Kelly standing happily amongst the bushes and trees. She looked very happy 🙂 Holly and Helen wandered round the elephants on show, answering some quiz questions, which included measuring the height of one of the elephants as well as seeing if they could jump the length of the baby elephant.
There were some speeches by someone from Blundells ( who have sponsored the Little Herd) as well as from the lady who runs the Artfelt project at the Children’s Hospital. One of the highlights was being told the amount which has been raised by the Little Herd: over £40,000! This is an incredible total and we felt very proud that Sacred Heart School had helped towards it. 😊
Despite the drizzle this morning, the KS 2 children took to the yard, the MUGA and the hall for a variety of sporting activities. All the children took part enthusiastically and enjoyed themselves. It was lovely to see so many parents, grandparents and other people there to lend their support to the children. Many thanks to those of you who were able to attend.
On Friday 10th June, Bishop Ralph visited Sacred Heart School. The day began with a lovely Mass to belatedly celebrate the Feast of Sacred Heart. There was some beautiful singing by Year 4, accompanied by the very talented Charlotte on flute and Mrs Barret on guitar. Our two soloists, Caitlyn and Declan also shared their talents with yet more fabulous singing. We are immensely proud of all our children. The Bishop then walked round school, chatting to the children along the way.
In addition to celebrating our feast day, the children also had extra playt at lunchtime as we had 100% attendance – all 212 children were in school, which was fantastic! Well done, everyone!
