A very happy new year to all of our families and friends!
It was great to see all the children back in school on Monday and whilst some of us had struggled when our alarms went off everyone looked well rested.
It has been a funny week with the excitement of the power cut on Thursday and the prospect of some snow - which didn't come!
We really enjoyed having our lunch at Christ Church and the children were very well behaved and walked sensibly there and back. I am very grateful to Mr Hargreaves and all his staff for allowing us to do this to make sure that all our children got lunch and we didn't have to close school.
Pope Francis has reminded us of a blessing from the Book of Numbers which I think is apt for this time of year where we are encouraged to think about the strength, courage and hope for the year ahead.
“The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.”

I was lucky enough to go on a school trip today with Class 2. It was very exciting to go on the train and the children were very well behaved chatting to their friends and to people that they met. The children learnt lots about the castle and some of the pictures that the children drew showed great observational skills! It was great visiting the court and seeing all the coats of arms on the walls and it was fun dressing up as judges, policemen and prisoners. The highlight for me was how brave the children were when we were locked in the cell. It was very dark and a little creepy!!
The children walked a long way and after a little play in the park we all arrived back safely.
We all enjoyed the disco and had fun dancing to different songs - many thanks to everyone who helped with the food and drinks and a special Thank You to the DJ who was brilliant with the children.

What a busy week we have had. We have had children playing football in a 6 a side tournament where they won two and drew two - so well done to our footballers. We have had different visitors looking around school particularly interested in the Run A Mile project that we do.
Today was one of the busiest days as it started off with a fantastic MacMillan Coffee Morning, there were so many lovely cakes that people had baked - it was almost like having our very own Great British Bake Off tent with lots of goodies to eat! Thank you so much to all of the kind people that volunteered to help us - making tea and coffee, selling cakes selling raffle tickets and coming to buy them too!
We then got things ready for our CAFOD stall at the Church Hall tomorrow with my very own band of merry men filling bags of sweets to sell. Please see the photographs below.
We then finished the day with Celebration assembly and as usual it was great to see all the lovely things that the children have been making and doing and to celebrate all the hard work that goes on in the classrooms. As usual though I ran out of time!
Hopefully we will all have a good weekend ready to learn lots of new things next week.

Happy Roald Dahl day!!
Everyone looks absolutely amazing as all the children and staff have dressed as their favourite book characters. We have had lots of different characters from Willy Wonka to Danny, Champion of the World. We have added lots of photographs to the Gallery on our website so please make sure you have a look!
There have been lots of different activities going on in class from writing about Willy Wonka's chocolate factory to all the sweets escaping into the school hall to the enormous crocodile eating our Class 1!!
Thank you for all the effort that you have put into the costumes to make your children look amazing!

What a busy start to the week we have had!
We all enjoyed celebrating Mass today and giving our new children their lovely prayer cards. Class 1 were very brave and stood up to share the word Welcome whilst one of our new House captains - Ruby Leigh read out all their names!! It was lovely to see all their big smiles.
Our readings were all about Friendship and looking after each other and it has been great to see children doing just that.
I am very pleased to say that we are getting lots of credits throughout school and I have been amazed at how well the children have settled to do their work - there has been some great handwriting coming from Class 2 and Class 3!
Don't forget that it is Dress-Up Day on Friday and I look forward to seeing all the great costumes!
