Last Week: The children have been learning about ‘Crosses’ and visited church on Thursday to look at all the crosses there. The children really enjoyed the chance to have a good look around the church building, led by Fr Tom. It was a great opportunity to look at the Stations of the Cross prior to Lent and Easter when they’ll be studied at greater depth. Dan Maher a blues guitarist from America visited school and Friday afternoon. He took a few of our pupils who play or own a guitar and gave them a short tutorial. Toward the end of the afternoon he also gave the children a performance of classic American blues guitar music; a great experience for our children. This Week: Year 6 from Our Lady and St Patrick’s, Maryport will be visiting our class 3 to share with us the work that they did for RE week and we in turn will share with them what we’ve been doing.

In their synagogue just then there was a man possessed by an unclean spirit, and it shouted, ‘What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are: the Holy One of God.’ But Jesus said sharply, ‘Be quiet! Come out of him!’ And the unclean spirit threw the man into convulsions and with a loud cry went out of him.
