Dear Parents and Carers
Slightly belated but we all wish you a Happy St Wulstan’s Day. It was lovely to be able to celebrate our patron saint's feast day by holding our postponed party day! The children all thoroughly enjoyed themselves - the children participated in craft activities in the morning followed by live streaming Mass with Father Richard. We then all gathered in the hall for our usual sausage and chips and finished off the day with party games and a special treat left behind by Father Christmas.
We look forward to discussing your child's progress at our Spring Parents' Evening. Meetings will be held both virtually via School Cloud and in person at school. Face to face appointments will be available on Tuesday 8 March from 4:00pm to 7:00pm. Virtual appointments will be available on Wednesday 9 March from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. School Cloud is the website that we used to hold our Autumn parents meetings and the booking process remains the same for both virtual and face to face appointments. The booking form for appointments can be found via the following link: https://stwulstans.schoolcloud.co.uk. Appointments are available to book from 4:30pm today and will remain open until Friday 4 March. Please note that we will not accept any bookings made after this date in order to give staff time to prepare. A parent guide to using School Cloud is available to view below.
As a school we are committed to safeguarding and meeting the needs of all children. Our children's wellbeing is of paramount importance. If you have any concerns regarding any of our children, then please do not hesitate to contact the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) - for our school this is Mrs Savage. Mrs Warnett and Mrs Tasker are the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads (DDSLs) and can also be contacted in Mrs Savage's absence.
Year 1 had a wonderful day on Wednesday, design and then creating their own cross-stitch crosses.
In Year 5, we celebrated St. Wulstan by finding out about his life and then explored how we could use clay to create amazing sculptures of St. Wulstan himself! It was rather tricky and very messy, but we had a great time and produced some incredible masterpieces!
Year 6 chose to celebrate the feast of St. Wulstan by preparing a vegetable curry as our school saint was vegetarian. All the children worked very hard to follow the needed steps to make the curry. Then, they evaluated the food they made and suggested changes to ingredients to improve their recipe. We had a lovely day celebrating the life of Saint Wulstan.
Reception class thoroughly enjoyed their first experience of St Wulstan's party day. During the morning they worked together to collage a beautiful picture of St Wulstan. After joining the rest of the school for lunch the class had a fantastic afternoon playing party games!
We hope everyone has a lovely weekend with their families
