The Priory Catholic Voluntary Academy

A place to learn, have fun, grow and develop in the light and love of Christ


Welcome to Lindisfarne

We are Year 2

Mr Ward, Miss Webster, Mrs Sheehan and Mr Harlow are our teachers.

Goodbye, Year 2!


Dear Children, 


It has been a strange year, hasn't it? It feels even stranger to say goodbye like this. Many of you will now know that I won't be at The Priory next year because I am moving to a new school in our Academy Trust. I have really enjoyed teaching all of you this year and getting to know you. You've all worked so hard and have produced so much amazing work.  You should all be extremely proud of yourselves because I am certainly proud of each and every one of you. I know that you will all work just as hard for Miss Fitzpatrick next year. 


Lots of love, 


Mr Ward

Lights, Camel... Action!

It’s strictly the Nativity but with a groovy twist! Year One and Two transformed themselves into nativity celebrities as we celebrated the birth of Jesus in school with a dazzling dance show! All of the children were fantastic and they amazed us with how quickly they learnt their lines, the songs and the dance routines. Well done to both classes. You really helped the whole community understand the real meaning of Christmas and experience the joy that Jesus brings. 

What is Shabbat?

This week we have been learning about other faiths. We have been learning about why Saturday is God’s special day for Jewish people. We have learnt about the preparations that Jewish families make for the Shabbat meal on Friday nights. We got our own table ready and made our own challah bread.

The Baptismal Candle

Today we designed and made Baptismal Candles. We learnt about the end of the ceremony when the priest says, “Receive the light of Christ.” The parent or godparent of the child then lights the  Baptismal Candle from the Easter Candle. The priest then tells the priest the parents that they have been entrusted with the light of Christ so they will help their child follow His light and keep the fame of faith alive in their hearts. Then everyone says the Our Father, which is the family prayer of the Church, a sign that the baby is a new member of the family of Jesus.

The Symbols of Baptism

Today we recalled our learning from Baptism in Year One by making the symbols of Baptism for our display. We made a font, the oil of Chrism, the crucifix, the white garment, the shell and water and the baptismal candle. Our collages look beautiful and we had great discussions about what we can remember. We’re looking forward to our new topic all about ‘Signs and Symbols’.

Our Prayer Area

It is currently Ordinary Time in the Church’s year. We have made sure we have green drapes on our prayer area because green is the liturgical colour for Ordinary Time. We also wrote prayers on leaf templates as Ordinary Time is the time when we continue to grow in God’s love.

'Dream Big'

On Monday 16th September, Nottingham Forest visited the school and inspired the children to 'Dream Big'. The children were invited to write about their dreams and aspirations in a special homework competition, which is due in Friday 27th September.
