Week Commencing 1 October 2018

This month sees the beginning of National Poetry Month. We will be looking at different poets and poems during the month and encouraging the children to share any poems which they enjoy. We would be very happy to share any poems which families enjoy reading together. Some of our class reading time will include sharing poems together.

This week Prep 6 will be visiting Trentham Academy on Tuesday afternoon to participate in a Science and Modern Foreign Language afternoon.
On Thursday we have our annual Harvest Festival.

The Early Years and Pre Prep 1 Harvest will be in school at 9am. We ask that the EYFS and Pre Prep bring along items of tinned produce for our Harvest which will be distributed to Age UK.

We encourage the Prep children to do a little job around the home and earn some money to give for the Harvest Thanksgiving, this money is then distributed to our local charities, including CAFOD. We ask that the children bring their money in a decorated envelope with a drawing of either what they have done to achieve the money or a Harvest picture.

The Pre Prep from Pre Prep 1 up to Prep 6 will be taking part in a Harvest Thanksgiving Mass at St Teresa’s Church commencing at 1-30pm. This Mass will be celebrated by the new Priest at St Teresa’s, Father Michael Glover; we are looking forward to this occasion. Parents and Carers are most welcome to attend.

Friday sees our CAFOD Family Fast Day. Children are asked to bring in a pound and forfeit a break snack and receive a piece of bread instead. This helps us to think and pray about those children who are less fortunate than ourselves and may only receive one very simple meal during the day.

‘Every day is an Open Day’, please make an appointment to view the school.
