You will have noticed that on Friday I have asked you to get creative and explore Mary our Mother through Art. 
This is a competition and you have until the 15th May to send in your creation via email to Mrs McCaughey year2@stdominic.herts.sch.uk for a chance to be featured in a special reflection video that will be included on our Twitter account and school website.

I have also added a link this week to enable your child to access free e-books. Use the link below to register and then gain access to a variety of new books to read.

It's very important to continue to pray, reflect and take time to talk to God in your hearts and homes during this challenging times. Maybe you could lead a Collective Worship or prayer for your family. Please use the links below to support this.



Parents, as the lockdown continues, you may have started to settle into your new life with ease or you may find yourself or your child struggling. I have added a new page to our school website with a range of resources for you to draw upon should you need them, please find the link here: Mental Health & Wellbeing Page

There is an excellent e-book, written by Elizabeth Jenner, Kate Wilson & Nia Roberts Consultant: Professor Graham Medley Professor of Infectious Disease Modelling, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine Illustrated by Axel Scheffler here.

Mrs Serra and I are extremely proud of how hard you are working. Keep up the great work and stay safe and well!

Have a lovely weekend!
