Dear Parents                                                                                            15 October 2020

As we come to the end of the week it is lovely to celebrate with news of children’s activities outside of school as well as in class. During Lockdown, one of our Year 4 children wrote a fabulous poem inspired by watching Blue Peter which she then sent in. As a result she was awarded a Blue Peter badge. Many congratulations, I am extremely envious as I always wanted a Blue Peter badge but sadly never wrote a poem of this standard!

On Monday 19 October our school photographer will be in school to take individual photographs of every child. We will ensure photographs with siblings are also taken. but unfortunately this year we will not be able to include pre school siblings We would ask that the children wear winter uniform of white shirt /blouse and tie .

Due to the current COVID19 restrictions unfortunately we will be unable to hold face to face meetings for our November Parents Evening. However, teachers are presently preparing a short written report which will include all the information they would normally share at Parents Evening. These will be emailed out to Parents on Tuesday 3 November and will include guidance if you need to discuss any aspect in more detail with your child’s teacher. We hope that by our March Parents meeting we will all be in a position to hold our normal system of reporting. Thank you for your support and understanding as we try to adapt all our usual routines.

After half term all children will all need to wear full winter uniform. This consists of white shirt and tie and trousers for the boys( Red polo shirts are only for summer). The girls winter uniform is white blouse and tie and grey skirt or pinafore. Can I just remind parents that culottes or trousers are not part of our girls uniform and should not be worn.  I know many parents will take their children for haircuts over the half term break. Again we remind you that extreme haircuts are not allowed. Several parents have asked what is the permitted cut and we request a Grade 3 is the shortest. Several children have had extreme haircuts recently and once grown out we request that you adhere to our uniform policy. Thank you for your support and to the many parents who double check with me before taking their child to the hairdressers.

A reminder that the application window for Reception Class 2021 is now open. Due to the current circumstances we will not be holding an Open morning but individual visits are available by arrangement.   As I have said before there can be a misconception that only Catholic children can apply to our school. We welcome applications from all families of all or no faith. If you know of any families who are presently applying for a school place please encourage them to contact me to arrange a visit to the school. Applications for Reception Class 2021 must be completed online by 15 January 2021. Applications for High school must be submitted by 31 October 2020. If you require any advice please contact us at school.

 

If you have any queries or concerns regarding your child’s academic, social or emotional needs please do not hesitate to contact me or their class teacher. Many thanks for your continued support and enjoy a lovely weekend with your families.

One of our Year 5 children has been busy tending to his pumpkin!

Brilliant work from our Reception children.

Year 4 learning about seasonal weather patterns.

This afternoon, Year 5 have creating their own masterpieces inspired by the work of Antony Bridge (a local artist who paints the Malvern Hills). The children used their shading skills to create perspective and chose either warm or cool colours to create atmosphere.

As part of our Mexican topic, the Year 6 pupils have been creating their own Day of the Dead masks. They have learnt how the Day of the Dead is a celebration to honour those who have passed away – its’ a time of rejoicing and memories. People dress up and wear beautiful, bright masks.

Our wonderful badge winner!
