Latest email from your teachers

Hello everyone, 

We would all like to say a great big thank you and well done for your maturity and positive attitudes coming back to school. It has been a delight to have you back and we are so proud of you.

It feels like we are almost starting the year again doesn’t it? We are looking forward to learning with you over these next few weeks and we hope you are too.

As we settle into our respective bubbles – the Heroes and the Stars from each class – we wanted to introduce all the staff members that are working with year 6 during this time.

Miss Davies, Mrs Grove and Mrs Hull are with the Stars Bubble from each class.

Mrs Carney, Mrs Terry and Mrs Gordon are with the Heroes Bubble from each class.

Worship ideas

As you think about making time each day for worship, you might start by making yourself a prayer table or corner – somewhere that you can be still, comfortable but still, not distracted by anything going on around you.

You might want to set up a “table” – a real one or the top of a chest of drawers or even an upturned box, cover it with a cloth if you can and maybe place your Bible on it, maybe your Rosary beads or a crucifix if you have them and if Mum and Dad are happy, a candle which you can light as you pray.

Plan your worship time…

How will it start – maybe lighting the candle, asking that the Light of Jesus represented by that candle may be in your heart…

You might want to start with a prayer – use our School prayer book for inspiration and ideas.

Read a passage from the Bible. The Gospels are always good to read. We are still in the season of Easter and the Readings this year come from John’s Gospel.

Take time to stop and think about what the Gospel writer is saying to you about Jesus and maybe decide on soemthing that you are going to do to change the way you behave or think about things to match Jesus’ teaching.

You could sing a hymn that you know or find one on the internet to sing along to and take the time for prayer.

Pray for yourself, for your family, for your friends. Pray for our doctors and nurses and all those who are working so hard now to keep us all safe and well. Pray for our world.
