Weekly News Friday 4th November

Dear Parents and Carers


“We are all of the same stock and members of the one human family; we have the same Father in heaven and we are all his children.”

Pope Francis

Welcome back to the beginning of a new term. I hope everyone managed to get some rest and relaxation.


On Tuesday the children attended Mass with the parish for the feast of All Saints Day. It was a bit of a squash and a squeeze as the whole school attended Mass for the first time this academic year.


Well done to Year R for their excellent behaviour at the first Mass they have attended with the whole school.


Parents Evenings

On Tuesday 8th and Thursday 10th November we are holding the first of our parent evenings for this academic year. Today you should have received your child’s first report and the parent evenings are arranged so that you can discuss how your child is getting on in more detail. If you haven’t already booked an appointment please contact the school office as they will be happy to help.


School Photographs

On Tuesday 8th November the school photographer will be visiting the school to take individual photographs of the children. There will be the opportunity for photographs of pre-school children before school officially starts from 8:15a.m.

With Christmas coming a photograph of the children makes an excellent idea for a present for a favourite auntie/uncle or grandparent.


Sponsored Walk/Explosion of Colour

On Thursday 10th November the school council have organised a sponsored walk to raise necessary funds for their projects. Sponsor forms have already been sent home and you can either sponsor the children for each lap of the school they do or just make a single donation. The more money raised the lovelier things the children can plan to do. Children are encouraged to wear colourful clothes on this day but please remember they still need to be able to walk in what they are wearing!


Year 5 to lead our Remembrance

On Friday 11th of November at 10:45a.m Year 5 will lead our act of remembrance when we will remember all who have died due to conflict and war. This is usually a very moving liturgy and all are welcome to join us.



Christmas Fayre

It is a little scary that we are already beginning to practice songs for the Nativity and Carols for the Christmas Carol Service.


In the weeks running up to the fair we are looking for various donations for our stalls in return for the children being able to wear their own clothes.


Thursday 17th November- Stationary Sets to make presents for Father Christmas’ sack.

Friday 25th November- Children to bring in something to make up a prize for our “Colour Raffle”

Friday 2nd December- Bottles for our Bottle Stall e.g. nice bottles that parents like to drink (in moderation of course!)

Friday 9th December- Cakes for a Cake Stall


With Best Wishes
