As part of our World Book Day celebrations in March some of our children took part in a sponsored read.
The money raised has bought new books for the library and accelerated reader scheme. I’m excited to say the books arrived this week and I thought that you’d like a sneak preview!
Thanks again to all those who took part and I hope you can enjoy the books soon.
You will not believe how much we are missing you all! School feels very strange without seeing all of your beautiful smiles and hearing you chat and giggle with each other. We just want to give you all a big cuddle and hear all about the wonderful and creative things that you have been getting up to with your families. It has been very heart-warming to hear and see some of the amazing things you’ve been getting up to! Who knew we had such fantastic bakers and marathon walkers in our school? We are extremely proud of you all.
We hope that you are all feeling okay. We know that you will have lots of questions and worries – you have even have those funny butterflies in your tummy. It’s okay to be feeling like this as the world is a little topsy-turvy at the moment. The most important thing to remember is that you are not alone and there’s always someone to talk to. Please don’t be frightened to tell someone how you’re feeling or ask any questions you may have- it may help you to feel a little better.
In amongst all of this, however, there are some good things happening. As there is less air and car travel, the environment is getting a bit of a rest. Also, people are talking to each other more and are getting to spend some quality time with their families which they may not usually get. It’s also wonderful to see communities coming together and people offering to help each other.
Whilst our world in topsy-turvy, let’s take a moment to think about the things that never change. You are loved very much, both at home and at school. The sun will keep shining and the birds will keep on singing. God is always watching over all of you and lots of people are thinking of you in their prayers.
We will be here waiting for you all to come back to us and carry on learning, laughing and loving.
Until that time comes, stay safe with your families, keep praying for each other and remember… we miss you and we love you!
Lots of love and hugs,
all of the staff at St. Chad’s xxx
Good morning school family.
Which stories have you been enjoying while you have been staying safe at home? Would you recommend them to your friends?
It’s Palm Sunday this Sunday. Palm Sunday marks the start of Holy Week.
We are celebrating this by placing a cross made from nature or even a computer print out on our front door. Please feel free to join in.
We would like to wish you all a happy, holy and safe Easter.
Well, it’s safe to say that Mrs Strachan’s baking needs some improvement!
Children, can you do any better this week?
Colour Walk: It is a beautiful day outside today and there are so many different colours in God’s world.
While you are in your gardens or perhaps out for a sensible walk (with your family only), see how many different colours you can see.
You could either take a picture, make a chart, sketch them or make a simple list!
Ellie is our star this week for excellent effort with her writing.
We have been journalist in Literacy this week reporting on our fantastic science day.
In Maths, we have been dicing with decimals and calculating the areas of parallelograms and triangles.
We have been looking at refraction of light in Science.
We have been practising our throwing, catching and dodging skills in PE.
Well done to Jared who is our star of the week! His positive attitude and hard work has really been noticeable this week! He is an asset to our class! What a superstar!
We have all been absolute gems this week, with not only completing assessments in literacy and maths but also with the level of uncertainty we have faced.
We have really enjoyed finishing our Bollywood dance in PE and our science topic of the human body. We have been looking at hills and mountains of the UK in geography. We used our atlas skills to find and name them on a map. It was tricky but fun!
Wishing you all a happy few weeks, keep safe and healthy and hopefully see you all soon.
