Weekly News for Families 4.02.2022

Dear Parents and Carers,
It has been another busy week in school with children sharing their highlights of the week in worship today. Our younger children talked enthusiastically about describing aliens and planets ready to create their own space stories next week, while the older children talked very proudly about the biographies they have finished, the explanatory texts they have published and the art work they have created in the style of Peter Thorpe and Chris Mould. 
Please find attached our February Prayer.
This month, our prayer is taken from 1 Corinthian 13 and is based on love. With Valentines day in a couple of weeks time,  it seemed the perfect opportunity to reflect on the words written by Saint Paul in one of his letters to the people of Corinth. 
In their Key Stage worships on Thursday, the children considered how 70 years of being a monarch was an outstanding achievement and worth celebrating. We talked about street parties and how the nation might be celebrating on the extra Bank Holiday. The children were excited to hear about the Platinum Jubilee competition, so I have attached details of this below. As part of our worship, we have added our own special pudding bowl and spoon to our Worship table as a way of starting to generate our ideas about the ‘perfect pudding’ for the Queen. 
The popular television show, The Great British Bake Off, is now looking for the UK’s best young bakers to take part in their competition. Children aged 9 – 12 are invited to apply by Sunday 13th March 2022 if they would like to take part. 
Have a fabulous weekend and we look forward to seeing you on Monday.
Take care
Kim Huggett
