Headteacher’s Newsletter – Friday 16th June 2017

You came in great numbers, the weather held and the children had a wonderful day. Congratulations to the children from Matthew who were this year’s winners. It was a lovely day enjoyed by all who took part and thank you to everyone who came and supported. During the summer months please ensure that your child comes to school with a water bottle and school hat. Sun cream must be applied before children come to school in the morning. The next five weeks are an exciting time in school; please keep abreast of the future dates.

The word of the week is NOURISHMENT – This Sunday we celebrate the feast of Corpus Christi. How does the body of Christ nourish you in your everyday life?

Year 3 Trip to Celtic Harmony – The children from year 3 thoroughly enjoyed their day to Celtic Harmony on Tuesday. They made arrowheads from soap, experienced a real live fire and pretended to bring down a woolly mammoth! The children enjoyed learning about the stone age in an exciting environment and were great ambassadors for the school.




Athletics Meet – On Wednesday evening the school athletics team competed against three other local schools at St Peter’s School across a range of events. The standard of the competiton was very high and the children performed incredibly well. They lost the meet by 4 points to Maple School but gave a brilliant account of themselves. Thank you children.




Wacky Day – What a great day! The children went to great lengths to dress up and enter in to the spirit of the event. Over £260 was raised on the day for the children of the Santa Maria Education Fund, this term’s charity. Thank you to everyone who donated.

Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, be my sanctification;
Body of Christ, be my salvation;
Blood of Christ, fill all my veins;
Water of Christ’s side, wash out my stains;
Passion of Christ, my comfort be;
O good Jesus, listen to me;
In Thy wounds I fain would hide;
Ne’er to be parted from Thy side;
Guard me, should the foe assail me;
Call me when my life shall fail me;
Bid me come to Thee above,
With Thy saints to sing Thy love,
World without end.
