Year Three - The Igloo

Miss Naylor and Miss Calderbank are the teachers in our Y3 class. Our class name is The Igloo and we are the penguins. 


Our Class Saint

St Peter. Patron of Fishermen. Feast day is 29th June. 

Peter and his brother Andrew were fishermen when they met Jesus. Peter followed Jesus and his life was changed forever. He became one of the twelve apostles and was among the first to be chosen as one of Jesus' followers. Peter means 'rock' and Jesus told Peter he would be the rock on which the church is built. Peter is known as the first Pope - the first leader of the Church. Peter showed faithfulness and determination in following Jesus' call. 

St Peter, pray for us.
