SUMMER READING CHALLENGE
Read (at least) six books during the summer holidays and fill in the record sheet. Don't forget to bring it back in September to claim your reward. Have fun!
Faith at Home: PATIENCE
Patience is one of those qualities that we all need to develop especially when times are tough, when people and governments are frustrating. Patience to wait for the right time, patience with each other and the patience to wait on God when things seem to be taking so long to sort themselves out. The Bible is filled with stories of people like Mary, David, Moses and Noah who had to wait for the right time, for God’s time.
‘…clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience’ (Colossians 3:1)
Use this resource to watch the videos and talk about the pictures with your family. There are also short worship activities to do at home.
Dear Parent and Carers, 10.7.20

Please ensure that your child completes their English writing assessment and their maths PUMA test (children who have been to school have already done them) Please send these into school asap. English assessments can be emailed to me or handed in in person with the PUMA test paper. They need to be in by the end of next week otherwise those pupils will have to do these assessments in September during the first week back and may miss out on fun activities.

Dear Parents and Carers,
I trust you are still well.
I have updated the work on the class page for week commencing 18.5.20 with new maths, English, computing and spelling work. It is our school sports day on Friday 22nd so we will be holding an interactive sports day and videos will be posted so your child can participate at home. If your child would like to design a poster to advertise St. Peter's Sports Day at home due to Covid 19 and send them to me. That would be great!
