  • Latest Newsletter - Friday 19th April 2024

    Published 19/04/24

    It’s great to see all the children again after the Easter holidays and hear about all the lovely things you and your families have been doing. Learning for the Summer term has started really well with English work based around Shakespeare texts – these have been particularly well received – and Geography learning in the afternoons. 1 Italy have been to Pizza Express for Food Technology and Maths learning; KS2 children took part in a terrific Golf afternoon; Geography field trips have been attended locally and all children took part in our ‘Welcome Back’ Ascension service. Y5&6 had a Medical/Asthma workshop and were really responsive to the nursing team.
    Our Collective Worship theme continues with the events which took place after Easter and Jesus’s resurrection next week.

    Our full newsletter is attached below together with our updated Diary Dates sheet and our updated Whole School Food Policy. A summary of next week's events is listed below.

    As always, we’re wishing you, your families,
    and our whole community a super weekend.
    God bless, from the St. James’ team
