At our school, we have recently changed the names of our House Teams. Having thought very carefully about the important Saints that we have learnt about, we decided to name our House Teams following the lives of Saints:
At Our Lady of Fatima School, each class has their own class Saint that they research and learn about in more detail.
On each class's Saint’s special day, the children give thanks for their Class Saint through prayer and deed and they can wear non-school uniform to celebrate.
|Class||Saint's Name||Feast Day|
|Reception||The Holy Family||October/May|
|Year 1||Saint Francis of Assissi||4th October|
|Year 2||Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta||5th September|
|Year 3||Saint Joseph the Worker||1st May|
|Year 4||Saint Maximillian Kolbe||14th August|
|Year 5||Saint Therese of Lisieux||1st October|
|Year 6||Saint John Paul II||22nd October|
The Feast Day for our school Saint - Our Lady of Fatima - is 13th May. We also celebrate the Feast Day for our Academy Saint- Saint Nicholas Owen.
We ran a competition within each year groups challenging the children to draw their class saint and explain why that saint was chosen and why they are important to each class.
Congratulations to the winners who are:
Reception - Benjamin
Year 1 - Maya
Year 2 - Rose
Year 3 - Aoife
Year 4 - Bella C
Year 5 - Lorena
