The quality of writing at St Gregory's is not contained in literacy lessons. We promote and encourage a good standard of writing across the curriculum, and throughout the school.
Take a look at some of the fantastic writing opportunities that the children have had so far, this academic year.

Year of Mercy
Pope Francis has declared this year as the Year of Mercy.
When we call on God to have mercy, we are calling on God in the only way we know him—as one who responds with compassion to those in need. When we show mercy to others, we are responding as God responds, with compassion.
Children in school have written their own prayers for us to use and reflect on during this year of mercy.
