As part of our Advent preparations, and to keep the true meaning of Christmas alive in our hearts and minds, Class 14 would like to raise some money for a local homeless charity during this half term. After discussions with the children, we have decided to arrange a sponsored walk, where we will be spreading happy Christmas wishes throughout our local community.
We will be completing this walk during one of the last weeks of term, we will send you the exact date nearer the time. In class, we are going to be preparing Christmas cards and Christmas crackers for different establishments in our community, such as Pendleton Croft sheltered accommodation, the ambulance service and many more. We will then wrap up warm, brave whatever the winter weather can throw at us, and trek out into the community on a 5km excursion to deliver our gifts.
With the ongoing Coronavirus crisis, it is now more important than ever that we show support and care, and let the many wonderful people in our community know that we are very grateful for all their hard work. And put a smile on their faces this Christmas!
Children will be coming home today with a sponsor form, where we would kindly ask that parents support their children to get as many friends and family members involved in donating to our cause. Write the name of the person and how much they are donating on the sheet, and please bring all monies to school no later than Wednesday 16th December – we will have completed our walk by this point.
Again, all of the money raised will go towards those who truly need a little bit of help and support during the upcoming cold winter months.
Miss Haynes, all of Class 14 and I really appreciate your support, and thank you in advance.
All Saints' Day assembly - 23.10.20
Although assemblies are different to normal, Class 14 have prepared a reflection about the importance of All Saints' Day - which will be on the 1st November. It is a shame we were not able to share our reflection with parents, like we have done in the past, but please feel free to follow through the Powerpoint that the whole school did, and reflect on some of the Saints who are with God in Heaven.
Today, Year 6 were presented with their Gold Ties. These ties are a sign of their commitment to showing how responsible, hard-working and mature they are and how they are role models to the rest of the school of living out their catholic faith.
"In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:16
Welcome Back Class 14!
It has been wonderful to see all your smiling faces back in school after what feels like forever! A huge welcome to Year 6! It's my first time in Year 6 as well so be nice. I'm sure we're all going to have an amazing year!
We will try to update this page as much as possible throughout the year so that parents can see all of the fantastic things that we'll be doing in school - It's going to be a very busy year!
Mr Green and Miss Haynes
Part of our new policy is that children will come to school in their PE kit on the days they have PE, so there will be no more getting changed at school. If it is cold, children may wear suitable tracksuit pants and a jumper as well.
Class 14 will have PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
