Reception: May is the Month of Mary.

Good Mornings, Reception.

It is May and May is the month of Mary.

If we were in school today, we would be going to the church for our special Marian Procession for Mary.

Click here to look at the news post about the Marian Procession last year. We all walked to church, carrying the special flowers that we had made. When we got there, we sang special songs, said special prayers and listened to Father Christopher. Then we all went up to the altar and put the special flowers in front the big Mary statue.

This is is the song about Mary that we sing in every Mass: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=GaDeqSotwoc

This is one of the special songs that we sing at the Marian Procession. We sing it when we are taking the flowers up to the altar: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=p_fln4An7G4

 

Can you tell us who Mary is and why she is so special?

In the special song, we call Mary ‘Queen of the angels and Queen of the May.” Do you know any other special names that we call Mary by?

Can you create a piece of Art about Mary? You could paint, make a collage or make a model. You could make flowers for Mary. If you have a statue of Mary, you could make flowers to decorate it.

I am really looking forward to seeing your art work all about Mary.

Love from Miss Siswick

It would really help me if you could upload photos  straight to the media file (instructions are here: sharing photos and files) as they get to me more quickly and easily as they don’t have to go via the office and my e-mail. Please can either your child’s name or face (but not both) be visible on any photos. Many thanks.

    We listened to the song and the pictures of mass last year – but rocco doesn’t remember the procession
    “Mary is the mother of Jesus and she is special because she is kind of like a queen “
    Initially Rocco couldn’t think of another name for Mary , so we said the Hail Mary and he remembered she is called ‘mother of god’
    Rocco will draw some flowers for Mary and we will send a picture

    Well done, Rocco. Mary is special because she is the Mother of Jesus. I am looking forward to seeing your picture.
