Week Commencing 8th April 2019

We are quickly heading to the end of term, this year breaking up the week before Holy Week.

We will be taking time out of the last few days to think about Jesus’ Journey to the Cross.

Over the past weeks we have had time for Reflection and have considered the Journey Jesus made into Jerusalem on ‘Palm Sunday’. We have looked at Judas’s betrayal and what it means to us when our friends let us down. We have also spent time thinking about the events of the Last Supper and how that impacts on our lives.

Over the next few days the children and staff will be able to bring all our thoughts and prayers together and place them on a large cross. Each person will be invited to tie a red ribbon onto a Cross to signify our sorrow for all the things that we have done wrong.

After Easter we will transform the cross with colour to celebrate that Jesus is Risen and we are Forgiven.

On Monday 8th April Father Glover will be in School to lead Prep 6 in The Stations of the Cross.

On Tuesday 9th April we will be holding our Sponsored Spell, with the Final ‘Spell-Off’ taking place in the afternoon

The EYFS Pre Prep Raffle will be drawn after the ‘Spell-Off’. Tickets are still on sale at a price of £2. This is the EYFS/Pre Prep Lent fund raising effort.

Wednesday 10th April is the last day of term. We are having a Non Uniform day in exchange for £1, which will go towards our Lenten Fund Raising.

The EYFS and Pre Prep will also be taking part in our Easter Bunny Hunt and our annual Easter Hat Parade.
In the afternoon we will be holding our Easter Jar Tombola.

Joes Club will be running as usual until 6pm

I hope that you have a very blessed and joyful Easter.

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