Virtual Harvest Service and Celebration

Virtual Harvest Service and Celebration

It was wonderful to come together in prayer today as we celebrated Harvest in school.

Led by Rev Sue, our 'virtual' Service using video conferencing was a special opportunity to share prayers from each classroom and a parable, and to give thanks at this special time of year. Classes produced some very creative artwork and each also wrote a prayer of thanks.

The creativity within God's world brought us seedlings and artwork featuring a mouse, a cow, a pizza (and the miles the ingredients have to travel) and a Harvest wreath.

Many thanks to Mr Ratcliffe (our Link Trustee) for joining us from home too.

A happy display full of the children's artwork has been added to the Worship Council noticeboard and is pictured here.

...love God, love one another.

MacMillan Non-Uniform Day Thanks

A huge 'thank you' for your support of the recent MacMillan Coffee Morning Non-Uniform Day here in school.

By coming into school in non-uniform, we were able to raise a brilliant £190 for this important charity - which is particularly special as we are in a time of such uncertainty.

Thank you all for your kindness and thoughtfulness.

...love one another.

MacMillan Coffee Morning Non-uniform Day

On Friday 25th September, children are invited to come to school in non-uniform and bring a donation to the MacMillan Coffee Morning, an important cause which we have supported in recent years.

Although we may not currently be able to sit together and enjoy a cuppa and a slice of something tasty, we would still like to help the important work by the people at MacMillan and ask for a donation of any size (anything helps) in return for coming to school in non-uniform.

Why not mark the occasion at home by working your way through a big, beautiful slice of your favourite cake!

...love one another.

Good Luck to our Amazing Year 6

We wish our amazing Year 6 the very, very best of luck as they leave St. Werburgh's C.E. Primary School and head off for exciting new adventures at High School.

Throughout this period, they have been unable to experience so many of the exciting times which are special to Year 6, yet have remained positive, happy and, quite frankly, fabulous! We are all very proud of you! Thank you to the PTA and the church for their thoughtful gifts, and thank you to those parents/carers who were able to send in messages for them.

Thank you also to all of those parents/carers who are also leaving us - some of you have been part of your school for more than a decade! We really appreciate your support and chats ...and we will miss you too! 

Thank you all for being so ‘owwwwtstanding!’

Welcome Back

The staff team are excited to be welcoming back children of essential Key Workers, and those in Reception, Year 1 and Year 6, who contacted school to say they would like them to join us.

If your child is returning on June 8th, please remember to follow the guidelines sent out in the confirmation letter, especially those relating to social distancing, hand-washing, start and finish times, which gates to use, and the information relating to what can be brought into school and what should be worn (remember - no boots or sandals/flip flops, please).

Online Home Learning will continue of course, so please keep emailing your child's wonderful work, scores and exciting news. We love hearing about how everyone is doing.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
