An invitation from Miss Davies and Mrs Grove…

Here’s a message from Mrs Grove (and her little helper!)

Here’s a message from Mrs Grove on behalf of the whole team…

Take a little moment and delve in to this lovely free book – The Book of hopes

Latest email from your teachers

Salut!

Bonjour!

We hope you have enjoyed your learning today! Miss Davies and Mrs Grove certainly enjoyed the sunshine!

Today would have been our first full day in France – can you believe it?! We hope that you have been enjoying spending time with your family. One person Miss Davies spoke to has been busy planning an entire French meal to cook her family for dinner!

We have loved seeing your French artwork too! Do keep sending photos through – it is great to keep in touch.

Speaking of keeping in touch… your teachers will be phoning you this week – the call will probably come from an ‘unknown’ number so if in doubt answer and you might just hear your teacher’s voice!

On the Year 6 learning at home page, the first chapters of Letters from the Lighthouse have been uploaded. Be sure to check them out! Scroll on down!

We hope you have a lovely evening.

Take care,

Miss Davies, Mrs Grove, Mrs Hull and the Year 6 Team

 

 

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.

 

Prayers to use at home

Use these prayers at home each day if you would like 

and of course all our school prayers are in the School prayer book

Online Safety

Young Voices have suggested that you can send in recordings of your family singing together but YOU MUST HAVE YOUR PARENTS’ OR LEGAL GUARDIAN’S PERMISSION TO DO THIS. You do not need to do this to join in the concert. If your parents allow you, film in a suitable place such as your garden or living room – not your bedroom; you can dress up but always check with your parents that you are wearing suitable clothes. Stay safe!
