Another busy week for Year 3!  The highlight for this week was our trip to Westminster Cathedral.  Year 3 took the the overground and the underground to Westminster Cathedral on Thursday 30th November for a special Advent Service in aid of the Catholic Children’s Society.

During the service, we listened to the Angel Gabriel who narrated the Christmas story. We heard about the annunciation, the nativity and the epiphany. Each part of the story was accompanied by a carol. Everyone enjoyed joining in with ‘O Little Town of Bethlehem’, ‘Little Donkey’, ‘Silent Night’, ‘We Three Kings of Orient Are’ and ‘Hark the Herald Angels Sing’. The choir was especially beautiful and really helped us to remember the special events before and after Jesus’ birth.



During the service, gifts were collected for the Catholic Children’s Society which is an important charity.  Well done to Hanna and Joseph S who handed in our contribution.  We heard about how the money collected through the service helped a family living in Westminster and prayed together with Bishop John to ask God to continue to help those most vulnerable and in need. It was a wonderful experience and we really enjoyed being in such a beautiful Cathedral…

Outside the cathedral, we met Clover the donkey!

After the class had eaten their lunch, they went along to see the Archbishops House but unfortunately were not able to see Cardinal Vincent Nichols!

It was a wonderful trip and thank you to Hanna’s, Matilda’s and Joseph’s mum who helped us on the trip! We are very grateful to you.

Have a wonderful weekend.
