In this Sunday’s Gospel , Peter (after a night of failed fishing) is finally successful. He also realises his true calling because he listens to and follows Jesus’ instructions.
It is important to make the right choice about who or what we follow in life. Following our desires and feelings can leave us unsatisfied. Following Jesus is shown in our actions every day and I see this in school through kindness, peacefulness and welcome. Our children often show us how they follow Jesus in all that they think and do and say.
Next week is the last week before a half-term break. Unbelievably this also marks the half way point in the year. The children have been working hard and are unrecognisable to the children who started in their new year groups in September. I hope the second half of the year will be as successful.
I was thrilled to see a range of different activities completed by children to mark ‘Safer Internet Day’. Please remember as parents the best thing that we can do is speak to our children about how they use the Internet. It is a hot topic in the news with different types of guidance given also to the amount of screen time our children should have. The NSPCC website has excellent advice about how to keep children safe online by using the word ‘TEAM’ as a helpful reminder.
On Tuesday next week Y4 will be sharing some of their exciting work from their Roman Topic. Miss Mallam is attending a computing course on Monday and Tuesday so Mrs Spark will teach Year 2 all week. I have also heard that Y1 might be making bread on Tuesday and on Wednesday evening two fantastic representatives from the school will be collecting the School Gold Award for our commitment to sports. Another busy week planned.
World Book Day Theme Reminder from Last Week:
This year’s theme is……..ANIMAL BASED CHARACTERS. We would like children to come dressed up as an animal character from a book. We will be running a homework competition based on this character so start your planning now. World Book day is on Thursday 7th March so plenty of time to be creative.
Before anyone asks, we accept that unicorns and dinosaurs are animal characters so children can come dressed up as either, but not both!!
Well done to Year 5 who have managed 100% attendance this week– superb!!
Have a great weekend,
