Y1 Visit to St. Clare’s Church
As part of their Domestic Church – Families topic, Y1 visited St. Clare’s Church and met Fr. Aidan there. He was very kind and showed the children around the church and told them all about the statues and the baptismal font. The children learned lots of information about Baptism to help them with their next topic.
Own Clothes Day for the NSPCC
The NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) visited St. Hugh’s earlier this term to talk to the children about keeping themselves safe. It is a very important charity that relies on donations to survive. To say thank you, we held an ‘own clothes day’ where children came to school in their own clothes for the day and made a donation to the charity. Thank you to our very generous children and families who raised £183.00.
Y3 Visit to the Cathedrals
As part of our whole-school Liverpool topic, Y3 went on a visit to the Metropolitan Cathedral and to the Anglican Cathedral. We are very lucky to have two magnificent Cathedrals in our city.
Y3 visit to the Synagogue
As part of our Judaism week, Y3 were learning about religious buildings, specifically the Synagogue. They had already been to both Cathedrals and were lucky enough to have a tour around Princes Road Synagogue. They learned a lot of interesting things about Judaism, for example, the significance of the shofar (a Jewish horn) and the boys were able to wear kippot which are small cloth caps worn by Jewish men and boys.
The Giants and the Gospel Choir
The Gospel Choir were honoured to sing at the formal launch night of the giants at St. George’s hall. The room was full of important guests and the children made everyone at St. Hugh’s very proud. Even some of our Y6 children from last year came back to attend!
Collective Worship with Parents
Each of our classes invited their parents into class this term to participate in a Collective Worship. Parents commented upon the children’s reverence, spirituality and beautiful singing. A special thank you to Ms. Glanville, our Chair of Governors for coming along too.
We have had a visit from the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC). They talked to the children about how to keep themselves safe and what to do if they are worried about anything. The children learned the Childline phone number 0800 1111 and know they can call and speak to someone in confidence.
The children are enjoying attending a variety of clubs this term including running, Bug Club, Bible Stories, football, athletics, dance, choir, performance poetry and homework.
