Welcome Back !
Welcome back to school and we hope that you and your family had a well earned and enjoyable rest over the Christmas Holidays.
Mrs Jobson and myself would like to say a huge a thank you for your kind gifts at the end of last half term.
The children have made a good start back into school life and working hard in class. Just a few class notices. We will be having PE on a Monday and Wednesday Afternoon. Please can children have PE kit in school that will enable them to take part in PE inside and outside. Please can children who have their ears pierced please ensure Earing's are removed on these days.
Please can every child bring into school their own named water bottle and just a polite reminder that children should not be bringing into school their own stationary and toys.
Please look at the attached Curriculum letter to inform you of what we shall be learning about this half term.
Many Thanks for your continued support with your child's learning.
Just a short notice to let you know that there will not be a celebration assembly this Friday (13th December 2019).
Also a reminder that on Wednesday it is Christmas Jumper and Dinner day.
If you have not yet sent back your child's permission slip for walking to Holy Family Church for the carol service practice next Tuesday (17th December 2019) please could you do this as soon as possible.
Many Thanks for your continued support with your children.
The children have settled in very well to a new class and a new key stage! They have adapted very well the start of the new year and have already shown what hard working and determined children they are.
We worked together to come up with our own set of class rules. We work with the children try to create a happy, safe and fun learning environment.
Each week the homework will be shared in the class web page as will useful information and websites to aid your children's learning.
Please click on the curriculum letter and PowerPoint to give you information as to what your child will be learning this term.
Feel free to come to us with any questions you might have

As a family we live, love, learn and celebrate with Jesus
As you read this letter, millions of families around the world are living in extreme poverty. As you know, our school supports CAFOD, the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development. With CAFOD, we believe that poverty is not part of God’s plan and that, as a Catholic community, we should not give up on the world’s poorest people. This Lent we are supporting CAFOD to help to change this to build a better world this Lent.
Therefore, as part of CAFOD’s Family Fast Day appeal, we are challenging our pupils to give it up this Lent – to give up something they like and donate the saved money to help build a better world.
Mahinur lives by a river with her husband Khalek and 12-year-old son Rabiul, who both have disabilities. She relies on fishing in the river to support her family, but last year it dried up and all the fish died. The fish have not returned. Some days the family just drink water for dinner. The good news is that CAFOD is part of the global Church network that reaches to the ends of the earth. We already know where Mahinur is. We know she needs help. And we know how to help. But the reality is that we are forced to turn away one in three requests for help, because we simply do not have enough money to go around. Mahinur’s family is currently part of that one in three.
That’s why your help is so vital. Taking the give it up challenge can be simple.To support this appeal we will be making an image of a fish in the school playground on Friday 15th March 2019. We would like to fill this with loose silver change and then this money will be sent off to CAFOD. You can find out more about this appeal, Manihur’s story and the work CAFOD do by visiting https://cafod.org.uk/Education/Primary-teaching-resources/Lent.
Please take the challenge and give it up. It will really help make a big difference, helping the poorest communities around the world to feed their families and make a living.
Thank you for supporting your son or daughter in his/her efforts to reach out to the world’s poorest communities.
Next week is book week! Thank you to those parents who have offered to come in and support the children by writing with them during the Drop Everything and Write time. Please can you remind your children that they will wearing PJS and bringing in their favourite book to share with their friends on Friday (8.3.19)
Awards assembly is at 9.15 on 8.3.19 and 2 children from each class will share the work they have done during the week.
Ash Wednesday: Ash Wednesday is 6.3.19. Father Norbert will join us for our class Ash Wednesday Liturgies and children will have ashes put on their foreheads during this time. Please ask the class teacher if you require more information about this.
