Newsletter 17th April 2015

 April 17th 2015 Dear Parents and Carers I hope you had a good Easter and that the children are well rested and ready to start a new term with their usual enthusiasm. This term is going to be very busy with events, school trips, end of year assessments. I would ask you to pay special attention to the website. We have decided not to print newsletters unless specifically asked for as this does use a lot of paper and isn’t particularly environmentally friendly. All term dates can be found on the website - click on ‘Information’ and scroll down to ‘term dates’. School Mass On Friday 24th March there will be Mass at Sacred Heart at 10.30am. Parents warmly invited to attend. Science Day On Tuesday 21st our scientists will be experimenting all day. Have you made your Egg Launchers? Don’t forget them! Maths Workshop Wednesday April 22nd there is a maths workshop for parents. Come and see how you can teach your child maths and what they are learning now! Don’t miss it Rob Eastaway is an excellent speaker and can be regularly heard on Radio 4. His latest ‘Maths, logic and the prisoner puzzle’ can be found on the BBC website. He has also written several books to help you inspire your children. His website is www.robeastaway.com Coffee Morning Friday 1st May please join us for coffee/ tea. 9.05am to 9.45am.

Sacramental programme in KS1

The children in Year 2 who received the Sacrament of Reconciliation on Saturday 21st March at Sacred Heart Church are now preparing to receive their First Eucharist. Our Sacramental programme continues today, Tuesday 21st April from 3pm till 3.45pm. There are eight after school Tuesday classes which finish on Tuesday 16th June. Please take note that the finishing time is 3.45pm and we ask that you collect your children promptly. Green Class children will receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist for the first time on Saturday 20th June 2015 during a special Mass at 12 midday. Orange Class children on Saturday 27th June 2015, also at a special Mass at 12 midday. The final meeting for parents and carers is on Wednesday 13th May at 6.30pm at Sacred Heart Church. Each child must have a parent/carer attending this meeting which will be led by Father Victor. The First Eucharist for our children also has meaning for the whole community. We smile at the children in their first Communion finery-not just because they look adorable, but because they are joining us at our family table: the table of God’s family.
