Thank you to everyone who purchased a BOB box from school and thank you to all the volunteers who came into school and help build them. This was an exciting project in school for the children in KS2 (Years 3, 4, 5 & 6) where Pope Francis had invited everyone to look after God’s world and school has taken up that invitation, with the CAFOD BOB (Bird or Bat) boxes. These boxes will help to look after the birds and bats in our local area and will also raise much needed money for CAFOD (Catholic Agency for Oversees Development). Each box cost £10, which covered the cost of materials and a donation of £7.50 will go to CAFOD. The children involved will be choosing how school spends the CAFOD money by purchasing gifts from their catalogue. We hope to let you know what these gifts are shortly. In the meantime we hope you enjoy the slideshow below. (29.11.17)

During the week 20th October here at St Vincent’s, we have spent our RE lessons learning about Judaism. Reception learnt about the Jewish Festival of Lights, Hanukkah; Year 1 have being finding out about Abraham and Moses; Year 2 learnt about Shabbat, Judaism's day of rest and seventh day of the week, Year 3 have been looking at the Jewish place of worship, the Synagogue; Year 4 have learnt about the Jewish holy book, the Torah; Year 5 have been finding out about The Seder Meal celebrated at Passover and Year 6 have learnt about the special celebrations of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. We celebrated all of our work with a whole school assembly where each year group spoke about what they learnt about the Jewish faith. Shalom Aleikhem! (Peace be upon you!). (29.11.17)
On Friday 15th September…Reception had a wonderful time meeting their Y6 special friends. We spent time colouring a bookmark together and getting to know each other. The Y6 children were very excited and demonstrated how important this relationship is by acknowledging how clearly they remembered their own special friends.
We’re sure this will be another exciting, fun aspect to school life for everyone involved! Enjoy the slideshow. (10.10.17)
