Dear Parents and Carers
“Trust the past to God’s mercy, the present to God’s love and the future to God’s care.”
St Augustine of Hippo
This week has been a very short week with the bank holiday on Monday and next week will be the same with another bank holiday to celebrate the King’s Coronation.
The children celebrated the King’s Coronation in style today by dressing in red, white or blue and with a lovely party. Many thanks to you all for providing the children with their party snacks. Let us hope and pray that the weather stays good for the weekend.
Year 2 children have started their SATS testing and they will be continuing this through the month of May. Year 6 will begin their SATs on Tuesday 9th May as Monday is a bank holiday. The children in both classes have been very well prepared by their teachers and other adults and I am sure that the children will give their very best.
On Monday the children in EYFS and Key Stage One took part in healthy eating workshops run by Louise from our school meals provider Chartwells.
The children got to taste and eat different fruits and food and had great fun producing food pictures while at the same time learning about different food groups and healthy eating.
Next term the children in Key Stage Two will get their chance to take part in healthy eating workshops. Many thanks to Louise from Chartwells for arranging these for the children.
On Wednesday 10th May at 2:30p.m. the children in Year R will lead the school in our Crowning of Mary Liturgy. The children have put a lot of work into the Liturgy and parents are very welcome to join us.
Steeped in history and tradition, the St. Edward's Crown, made in 1661, will be placed on the head of The King during the Coronation service. It weighs 4 pounds and 12 ounces, or about 2.2kg, and is made of solid gold.
In 1902, at the coronation of King Edward VII, the then Archbishop of Canterbury mistakenly placed the St Edward’s Crown on the King’s head back to front. (Let’s hope for no mistakes this time!)
