Advent at St Anne's RC - December 2017
Christmas Markets - 8th December 2017
On Friday St Anne's held their annual Christmas Markets! What a fantastic turn out we had. We made crafts and goods in school to raise money for the Good Life Orphanage and Tameside Trauma Unit. Year 6 pupils manned all the stalls whilst Year 4 sang Christmas Carols beautifully.
Thank you to everybody who made the markets a super success!!
Cornerstone - 26th September 2017
This morning Marjorie came in to speak to us about Cornerstone. She explained that Cornerstone helps people who are homeless and vulnerable. The pupils gave some ideas: feeding those who are hungry, providing homes for those without them and providing pods for people to sleep in. The corner stone is the stone that the builders have rejected. Everybody at the Cornerstone trusts in God; whatever is done at Cornerstone is done in love!
Over 200 people a day come to Cornerstone in need. Cornerstone is there to do whatever these people need and they LOVE these people-Marjorie explained that without faith, the work at Cornerstone would be impossible. Marjorie explained that the values of Cornerstone match our school values (which are shown on our hall displays). Cornerstone began 26 years ago. The nun who started it trusted in God and she had great providence; when you ask God for something, you will get it. Without people, we could not do this. Last week St Anne's gathered lots of food for harvest time which was dropped off at Cornerstone to help people in Manchester.
Cornerstone began in a very small cabin led by Canon O' Connor. With the help of people, it has grown into a huge support for those in need. Every day over 70 pints of milk and 40 loaves of bread are used at Cornerstone and that's just 2 items! Cornerstone helps people with any sort of problem, whether it be housing problems or support with benefits. The difference about Cornerstone is that God is there. £67,000 was raised by Cornerstone by their Big Sleep Out at St Christopher's in Ashton. This has enabled us to provide pods for people to sleep in. The motto for Cornerstone is ' Changing lives', and 'Giving hope.'
Marjorie said a big thank you to everybody at St Anne's for their support.
CAFOD - 18th September 2017
This morning Mrs Sivills came in to speak to us about CAFOD. She explained to us that CAFOD is the Catholic Agency For Overseas Development and that they are currently supporting people in 40 countries. She shared with us the harvest theme, 'Brighten Up.' We were told that currently in the world one person in ten is living in poverty.
Mrs Sivills shared with us that when we raise money for CAFOD the money goes on: Training, safe spaces, education, small businesses, sharing skills and support. Thank you for coming in and sharing all about CAFOD with us!

Thank you to all of the parents and grandparents that helped the children collect Autumn items over the weekend for our Autumn activities in school this week!

Construction and Vehicles - September 2016
Lots of the children were fascinated this week with the work men we had working on the grids on Foundation Stage playground. We discussed the different tools they were using and lots of the children shared their interest in construction and vehicles. In response to the children's interests we enhanced the provision with lots of vehicle and construction themed activities and the children created some amazing shape buildings and vehicles!
We also explored mixing colours while using toy cars to paint in the style of the artisit Tyler Ramsey. We enjoyed working as a team and developed our gross motor skills outside by rolling and building with the tyres. The children also came up with ideas for developing our outdoor space and decided they would like a bus, this is now being built using the pallets that were kindly donated and will be available in our outdoor area soon! Thank you to everyone that has donated items for this project!
