We are Team Benedict. As members of Team Benedict we are called to enhance the Religious Life of our school. Everyday we live by the gospel values and show others how they can do the same. Being a member of the Team Benedict can be a challenging but very rewarding task. Here are just a few of the tasks which you can find us completing at school:
leading whole school assemblies
establishing a prayer area within the school grounds
bringing new ideas to teachers to make our faith 'come alive'
supporting younger pupils with prayer at lunch time
taking a lead role in school masses
leading the Rosary during the months of May and October
leading activities during Lent and Advent
Celebrating Mary in the month of May
May is a very special time in the Catholic calendar as it marks the month of Mary. TEAM Benedict decided to spend some of their lunch times encouraging the children from Reception to year 6 to reflect with them and pray the Rosary. It was so lovely to see so many children taking part and being able to use our beautiful outdoor areas when the weather would allow.
December 2020 Team Benedict sent a video out to each class teaching them about the Jesse tree. Each class are sharing the relevant Bible story as part of their daily collective worship. After each collective worship, the symbol for that day is added to the tree. We are looking forward to seeing all the completed Jesse trees.
Team Benedict have been teaching their classes about Remembrance Day. Due to Covid-19, they were unable to visit the other classes in school, but they were still keen for the other class teachers to share their PowerPoint.
October 2020 October is dedicated to the Holy Rosary, so the children in Team Benedict have been teaching their classes about the rosary. Unfortunately due to Covid-19, they have been unable to meet as a large group in the prayer garden, but they have still been making sure years 4, 5 and 6 are able to meet within their classrooms
