Dear parent/carer,


Thankfully the weather has turned warmer this week (and the snow has gone away) meaning that the children have been able to go outside for their break times. Even so, we recommend that pupils wrap up warm when they come to school – coats, hats, gloves, tights (for girls) etc.

Throughout this week, all pupils (Year 1 upwards) took various age (and ability) appropriate tests in English and Maths. The results from these tests will be shared with parents/carers at our next Parents’ Evenings - scheduled for after the Easter break.

Our RE topic this term is ‘From Lent to Easter’. On Tuesday, Years 2 and 5 visited Church to find out more about the different Stations of the Cross.

Year 6 have had a very busy week! Yesterday, a group of representatives travelled to the SSE Arena, in Wembley, to take part in this year’s WE Day celebrations. The aim of this event is to raise awareness of issues affecting children today and to help raise much needed funds for a range of youth charities. The children were lucky enough to see a range of musicians and celebrity guest speakers including Britain’s Got Talent winner Tokio Myers, the Vamps, X Factor winner Alexandra Burke, Hollywood actress Lily Collins (Mortal Instruments) and princesses Beatrice and Eugenie. This afternoon, Yr6 walked to Brunel University to take part in a Junior Citizens workshop. Activities included teaching the children how to travel to secondary school safely including road safety, stranger danger and the use of public transport.


Father Nicholas – School Visit

We are very fortunate that our Parish priest (Father Nicholas) and pastoral assistant (Angela Atkins) are so proactive in taking part in everyday school life. They regularly visit school to talk to classes and to chat with children over lunch. Father Nicholas will be visiting school again tomorrow to lead Confessions and to visit our Early Years pupils.


From Lent to Easter

Following on from Year 2 and 5s visit to Church on Tuesday we also have the following events planned in the lead up to Easter:

Next Tuesday (13th March): Years 3 and 4 visit to Church.

Tuesday 27th March: Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 5) Easter Production in the school hall (at 2.30pm and then again at 6pm). Parents, carers and family members are most welcome to attend these performances. Please see further information below.




Years 3 to 5 Easter Production

This production will take place on Tuesday 27th March at 2.30pm and 6pm. ALL children in Years 3 to 5 are expected to be present for both performances, if for any reason your child can not attend, please write a note to their class teacher explaining the reasons as soon as possible. Thank you in advance. 


It’s Finally Here! – Book Week 2018

Throughout next week we will be holding our annual Book Week in school. The aim of this week is to promote a love of reading and to celebrate we have planned lots of fun activities for the children to enjoy. This year’s theme is: ‘fairy tales and traditional stories’. The children are looking forward to our popular Bedtime Stories evening scheduled for Tuesday 13th March between 5pm and 5.45pm. Pupils are invited to come back to school (wearing their pyjamas) for milk/cookies and lots of stories. Parents are invited to come to the school hall for an informal gathering focusing on the importance of reading (refreshments will also be available).

On Wednesday, all classes (Reception to Year 6) will be walking to Waterstone’s book store, in Uxbridge, to claim a free book.

Our dress-up-day will take place on Friday 16th March, and we are inviting all children to come to school dressed as their favourite character from a fairytale or traditional story (in-keeping with this year’s theme). On this day we have also invited parents into classes (from between 9am and 9.30am) to share stories with their child (or small groups of children).
