Welcome back! We hope you and your family had a restful Easter break.

This week, Year 6 have begun a revision programme to support them in preparing for the upcoming tests. The children have been fantastic in identifying their areas for development and have shown a really mature attitude to their learning and subject knowledge.

In RE we have looked at the resurrection story using Matthew’s gospel. In English, we watched an animation called Broken: Rock, Paper, Scissors. The writing outcomes based on this have been really impressive and incorporated so many of the skills we have learnt this year.

We were lucky enough to be able to use the field this week for PE. We looked at throwing for accuracy.

This afternoon members of the choir joined many members of the Our Lady and St Vincent community to congratulate Sr Margaret on her 60 years of being a Sister of Mercy.  The children were given a thank you gift for their lovely singing which was complimented by many of the people there including Sr Margaret.  The children in class wrote special prayers and thank yous to Sr Margaret and some of these are on display in the church porch area.  Do have a look at these when you have time .

We give thanks to Sr Margaret’s sixty years of religious life – sharing the love of God with those whom she has served over the years.  With grateful hearts, we ask God to continue to bless her and allow her to continue to serve Him in love.       Amen.


Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Mrs Lines and Mrs McNamara
