Good morning lovely children and parents!


Let's start with a prayer to our Lady:

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit:

Hail Mary,

Full of grace,

The Lord is with Thee, 

Blessed art thou among women,

and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,


Holy Mary, Mother of God,

pray for us sinners

now, and at the hour of our death


Literacy / Seaside

We will continue with our seaside theme and look more closely at various creatures living in the water. The sea is a home for many creatures like octopus, jelly fish, sea horse, star fish, dolphins, sharks, whales and many other type of fish. Today's story is called 'The Rainbow Fish' written and illustrated by Marcus Pfister.

Listen to the story and try to identify all the sea creatures.
