Sweet & Savory: Cooking brightens January in Room 18

Over the past few weeks the Friday Group have been meeting to cook and blog for you some warm snacks to cheer everyone up on the cold winter days.

On Friday last week some of us met to share Hot chocolate and freshly backed brioche.

This week we all met to grill mini Pitta Pizzas from The Book of Children’s Foods: Lorna Rhodes.

This is a step by guide that we followed to make our Pitta Pizzas! They were delicious. We each picked the toppings we liked. Some of us don’t eat meat so we knew to pick the toppings best for us.

TRY THESE PITTA PIZZAS AT HOME….. SO EASY TO MAKE AND DELICIOUS!

Last week some of us were at the Jui-Jitsu while the rest of us met in Room 18. We made hot chocolate and we baked Brioche.

We saved brioche for our friends who were having their turn at the sport. We had our sport turn earlier in the day. Bon Apetite.

Hot Chocolate and Brioche! Warming snack on a cold day!

WEIGHT STATIONS in ROOM 28

Last week we were learning about weight in maths.

We learned to estimate and weigh accurately using different types of scales.

We figured out that…

The size of an item doesn’t determine the weight! It can be big but light or small and heavy!

What type of scales do you think would be best to weight a school bag?

Test it out at home and let us know!

Music/Words: Ceremony of Light & Sacrament of Reconciliation 2020

We invite you to sing along together at home in preparation for the special occasion of the Ceremony of Light. 29th January 2020. We will be singing together on the night.

Opening Song – Gather Round

We gather in body, we gather in mind, In peace and in quiet together to find

God’s Holy Spirit round and about us, Through us, with us and in us.

 ******************************************************************

Psalm

The Lord is my Light, The lord is my Help, The Lord is my salvation. (X2)

Verse 1

The Lord is my light, My help, my salvation.

Why should I fear, With God I fear no one.

God protects me all my life. With the Lord what should I fear?

Refrain x2

Verse 2

There is one thing I ask of the Lord that I long for, All of my days with God to be dwelling,

Gazing with awe at the beauty of God, And in wonder look on God’s house.

Refrain x2

I know I will live to see the Lord’s goodness, Now, in this life I’m sure I will see it.

Trust in the Lord, be strong and be brave; Wait in hope for God, our salvation.

Refrain x2

*********************************************************************

Christ Be My Light

Longing for light, we wait in darkness. Longing for truth, we turn to you.

Make us your own, your holy people. Light of the world to see.

Christ be our light!  Shine in our hearts. Shine through the darkness

Christ be our light! Shine in your Church gathered today.

 

Longing for peace, our world is troubled. Longing for hope, many despair.

Your word alone has power to save us. Make us your living voice.

Christ be our light!  Shine in our hearts. Shine through the darkness

Christ be our light! Shine in your Church gathered today.

*******************************************************************

Moving On Up!

I was blind, But now I see! You made a believer,Out of me!

Said I was blind, But now I see! You made a believer, Out of me!

And I’m moving on up now, Out of the darkness!

My light shines on, My light shines on, My light shines on!

Verse 2

I was lost, But now I’m found! I believe in you, Ain’t got no bounds!

Said I was lost, But now I’m found! I believe in you, Ain’t got no bounds!

And I’m moving on up now, Out of the darkness!

My light shines on, My light shines on, My light shines on!

Yes I’m moving on up now, Out of the darkness!

My light shines on, My light shines on, My light shines on!
