We have all the light we need, we just need to put into practice.

I have to say I was very moved listening to Pope Francis on Friday and his message taken from St Marks' Gospel. It is only short and simple but just perfect at a time like now. "We find ourselves afraid and lost. Like the disciples in the Gospel we were caught off guard by an unexpected, turbulent storm. We have realised that we are on the same boat, all of us fragile and disoriented, but at the same time important and needed, all of us called to row together, each of us in need of comforting the other. On this boat… are all of us. Just like those disciples, who spoke anxiously with one voice, saying “We are perishing” (v. 38), so we too have realised that we cannot go on thinking of ourselves, but only together can we do this.” Pope Francis It has been lovely hearing about your hard work from staff. Well done everyone.
Well done everyone!

Thank you to all the children that have completed their work on Purple Mash this week it is so nice to see you keeping busy and continuing to learn! Don't worry if you can't save your work properly. Some tasks will only give you a score and others will save your work into the class folder or your own folder once you have completed without giving you an option to hand it in. We can still usually see that you have completed the work. Keep it up!
The Power of Prayer.
24 March 2020
Over the last few days Pope Francis has called us all to pray and has talked about the power of praying together. For many of us this would have meant going to church, listening to God’s Word and receiving the Eucharist. Sadly, at the moment this is not possible. Before school closed the children prayed a decade of the Rosary together and thought about how their united prayers could help everyone in these difficult times. We are suggesting that this is something you could continue to do at home. In times of uncertainty, the one thing I am certain of is that God will keep us all in His loving embrace and that ‘Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.’ I pray that you will all stay safe and look after each other.

Happy WorldBookDay everyone! Here's to a whole day dedicated to sharing stories and promoting reading for pleasure. Here are our 'Extreme Reading' winners for this year. Just think...spending just 10 minutes a day reading and sharing stories with children can make a crucial difference to their outcome and it’s fun for all involved.

What a fantastic day! We had such a wide variety of careers and vocations for the children to learn all about. None of this would have been possible with out the generosity of our parents and members of our parish and school family. What a unique opportunity to learn about all types of engineering, hospital work, teaching, cyber security as well as vocational work and the religious life. Thank you so much everyone.

We started the week together reflecting on the miracle of Jesus’ birth and thought about how each one of us could bring God's word to life through kindness, compassion and patience, and by finding time and space to welcome Him into our daily lives; a challenge for us all! On Wednesday we will be joining the parish in church to celebrate Mass together. The children are so respectful and prayerful in praising through their beautiful singing. We truly do value these times we spend praying together so I hope you can join us.

Goodness when I look back at this term we have done some amazing things. The children always rise to the challenges they face through the strong partnership we share together. The commitment of staff truly reflects the successes we share together and on your behalf I want to thank them. The Foxton Center were amazed at the 'four bin bags' of hats gloves and scarves from our School Council led Advent action. When we think that Mary and Joseph had the long journey to then stay in a stable, how lovely to help those who have nowhere to stay today. Have a lovely Christmas and I hope you enjoy spending time making happy memories with your families.
