What a fantastic day! We had such a wide variety of careers and vocations for the children to learn all about. None of this would have been possible with out the generosity of our parents and members of our parish and school family. What a unique opportunity to learn about all types of engineering, hospital work, teaching, cyber security as well as vocational work and the religious life. Thank you so much everyone.

We started the week together reflecting on the miracle of Jesus’ birth and thought about how each one of us could bring God's word to life through kindness, compassion and patience, and by finding time and space to welcome Him into our daily lives; a challenge for us all! On Wednesday we will be joining the parish in church to celebrate Mass together. The children are so respectful and prayerful in praising through their beautiful singing. We truly do value these times we spend praying together so I hope you can join us.

Goodness when I look back at this term we have done some amazing things. The children always rise to the challenges they face through the strong partnership we share together. The commitment of staff truly reflects the successes we share together and on your behalf I want to thank them. The Foxton Center were amazed at the 'four bin bags' of hats gloves and scarves from our School Council led Advent action. When we think that Mary and Joseph had the long journey to then stay in a stable, how lovely to help those who have nowhere to stay today. Have a lovely Christmas and I hope you enjoy spending time making happy memories with your families.
Year 6 on tour!
16 December 2019
Year 6 are going back on tour this week. Today we visited Preston Private care home and tomorrow we will walk down to Sharoe Bay Care home. It was such a delight to see the children sharing stories and memories with all those who came down to listen to us sing. It really does remind you of the importance of sharing your time with others. Well done Year 6!
Carols at the Hospital
15 December 2019
Once again the children in Year 6 shared their talents with the hospital Chaplaincy team in singing at the annual Carol Service. As always they showed what it is to be a part of St Clare's and really gave their very best.
The Road to Bethlehem
12 December 2019
It never ceases to amaze me how the story of Our Lord's birth can be told with such emotion and maturity by our children. Both 'Born in a Barn' and 'Mend the Manger' were truly amazing. We've heard the story so many times but seeing each step through the eyes of a child helps us all to remember the importance of Christmas. I'd like to thank all staff who worked together to nurture the children's understanding of this special time. It was lovely to see parents and families delight in watching their children bring such joy to everyone.
Corpus Christi Cluster Advent Service
05 December 2019
Well done to those children in Year 6 who came together with our family schools in the Corpus Christi Cluster. It was a lovely evening and again a unique opportunity to prepare in Advent. All the children were amazing and to receive nothing but complements about our school was another proud moment.

Advent, from the Latin word adventus meaning "coming", is a season expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas. Our Key Stage Two children definitely made sure we understand that message. What a wonderful evening we shared together. It never ceases to amaze me the way the children humbly remind us of the journey to the Birth of Jesus and how we need to prepare ourselves, remembering 'Such a big miracle in such a little baby.' Well done everyone and thank you.
First Week in Advent
02 December 2019
In Mass yesterday we lit the first candle on our Advent Wreath, the candle of Hope. In school we have started our preparations and are waiting for the arrival of Christmas and the coming of Jesus on earth, when He was born as a baby. This evening Key Stage 2 Children lead the Advent service in Saint Clare's Church at 6pm. Children are to meet in school from 5:30pm. On Wednesday Year 6 will take part in the Corpus Christi Advent Service again in Saint Clare’s Church starting at 6pm. You are all welcome to join us for both services.
