Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome back to school for the summer term!
We have had a fantastic first week back here at school.
In our Worship on Monday, our focus was ‘What a lot of puddings…Belief in the Resurrection’. We voted on our favourite pudding and talked about how we could make this decision, because we had proof by actually tasting the pudding. This led us to unpicking the saying ‘The proof of the pudding is in the eating.’ We then thought about Thomas, who was one of the disciples of Jesus. He is often referred to as ‘doubting Thomas.’ He did not believe that Jesus was alive and had appeared to some of his fellow disciples. He wanted proof and it was not until Jesus appeared to Thomas that he actually believed this to be true. We reflected on how today, we might not be able to see Jesus in person, but we could still live out the values of Jesus in our lives.
I have attached our prayer for April to this ParentMail so that you can use it at home if you so wish. Our prayer for April has been written by Betty, Letty, Bella, Peyton, Ethan, Eva and Harmony.
There has been an excited buzz in and around the classes. From the legends and secrets of the sea, to the wonder of sound, to the roof-tops of Paris! The children talked today in our whole school Worship about how excited they were to be back with their friends and to be finding out exciting new facts.
ST. GEORGES DAY
As the feast of St George falls on Sunday 23rd April, all of the children in St.George’s House are invited to wear something red to school on Monday. Our Worship on Monday will be about the life of St George. We would like to invite any child who has taken part in a St. Georges Day Parade this weekend to bring their tie and woggle from their uniform and wear it to our special Worship for St. George on Monday.
SUMMER TERM DATES
I have attached the dates for the summer term. Sports Day has been moved to June to try to avoid the extreme heat that we had last year in July.
We plan to celebrate the coronation of King Charles in school on Friday 5th May. We will hold our own street party on the playground and would like each child to bring a small packed tea (a sandwich and a cake) to eat at 2.30pm. There will be no P.E that day. Lewes Class have Forest School that day, but will finish at 2.30pm in order to join us. We would like the children to come to school dressed in red, white and blue. We plan to plant a tree and bury a time capsule in commemoration of this historic event.
THE LONDON MARATHON
Mr Coyle, our amazing athlete, will be running the London Marathon in memory of his late father on Sunday. We wished him lots of luck and positive energy today as a school family. Keep an eye out for him on the TV! There is still time to sponsor him. Run like the wind Mr Coyle! We are very proud of you.
MAY HALF TERM HOLIDAY CAMP HERE AT YAPTON SCHOOL
We are really excited about our Half Term Holiday Camp that will be held here at our school during the holiday. We are hoping that this will be the first of many, based on the amount of interest and bookings made. The camp will run from Tuesday 30th May-Friday 2nd June. They will start at 9am and finish at 5pm. It will be run by AbsoluteSport. There will be a different theme each day for the children to get involved in. The camp aims to give children a chance to have fun and try new activities. I have attached the flyer with the details of how to book.
Have a fabulous weekend.
