Pre-school Visit to the local garage - posted 9th Nov

We were so excited to visit JRJ Autos, a school family run business to see how cars are mended and serviced as well as enjoy the sounds and smells of a garage and see what kind of things people do when cars break down. The mechanics showed us how to put air in the tyres, lift the cars up using the hydraulic lift and check the engine. When we came back to Preschool, we became mechanics in our class garage.

Year 5 Pilgrimage to Bradwell on Sea - posted 12th Sep

St Helen's and St Joachim's started the year with a joint Pilgrimage to Bradwell on Sea. We visited St Peter's Chapel for a Liturgy and Prayer Service, and then spent the afternoon taking part in a range of reflection activities on the beach.

They learnt about St Cedd, reflected on what life was like for early Pilgrims, used the Footprints in the Sand Prayer and rejoiced in the wonder of God's Creation.

They could see the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben and St. Paul’s Cathedral in the distance. The noise inside the pod was very loud because they were so fascinated by the amazing views.
