Dear Parents

A massive thank you to everyone who sent in a flower,a posy or bouquet for our May procession
to honour Our Lady. All the flowers donated by the children were used to crown Our Lady and create a carpet of flowers in front of our statue. It was a beautiful service, held in the playground which enabled us to all gather together as a school. The older children led prayers and our oldest and youngest child in the school crowned Our Lady with a garland of flowers. We then continued to celebrate with little cup cakes for all. My thanks to all the children and to Mrs Freitas who organised the liturgy. 

Thank you to all our Year 4 parents who attended the First Holy Communion meeting yesterday. I can confirm that everyone who has expressed a wish for their specific Mass time has been allocated to that day. A reminder please to return the children's preparation workbooks 'Meet Christ with Joy' on Monday. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.

This morning we celebrated Mass for Year 6 in the school hall. It was lovely to welcome back Fr Richard and we hope this will be the first step towards a return of weekly class Masses.Well done Year 6 who were so reverent in their prayers, their responses and their attitude.

May half term will soon be upon us and Wulstan's Lodge will once again be running Holiday Club. Please see the attached flyers from Sally Bache with booking information including an Early Bird offe. 

This week we have received a delivery of outdoor toys and activities for the children's playtimes for both the KS1 and KS2 playgrounds with some developmental resources for Reception Class. These were paid for from the sponsorship monies raised when the Olympic gymnast Dominic Cummings visited last year. Thank you to everyone who sponsored their children - it will make a considerable impact on the children's fun at playtimes. 

This year, as with many other areas of society, school has suffered from the suspension of social events. Normally, as you know, we have cake sales, sponsored events, Christmas Fayre, pancake sales, discos and Summer Fayres.The bank development and our recent Trim Trail purchase were all  a result of fundraising by our wonderful PTA. As well as being an essential part of our school community they are also important fundraising opportunities which raise thousands of pounds over the year. This year we have obviously been unable to raise any money at all.

As a treat for the children on Thursday 27 May we will be holding a Non Uniform Day when the children can choose their own clothes for the day. We would be grateful for a donation towards PTA funds 'for the year' of whatever you feel you can afford to give as we continue to target phase two of playground development for the children. We are aware many families may have suffered financial hardship this year so please a donation of what you can manage would be very gratefully received . Thank you.

On Thursday 20 May we will be visited by our school photographer for our whole class photograps. Could the children please all wear winter uniform on this day. Thank you.

 

Thank you to everyone for your continued support. If you have any concerns regarding your child please do not hesitate to contact us via the office email or class email or by telephone .

We hope you have a lovely weekend with your children and hopefully the weather warms up a bit!

Please see below information regarding a new group for parents.

This afternoon Year 4 enjoyed a PE lesson in the sun . They have been really enjoying their cricket lessons and have been developing their bowling and batting techniques. Great effort! 

This week in Reception we have been authors and have been writing our own versions of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We have been fascinated with how much our caterpillars have grown and we have been very busy writing down our observations of them each day.
 

It has been a busy week in Year 2 as they have been inspired by National Clean Air month and have been investigating pollution. They have created pollution catchers (thank you for sending the boxes in) which they will monitor over the next few weeks. Year 2 will let us know of their findings .
