Good morning my lovely bunch, I hope you all enjoyed the glorious sunshine yesterday.
As today is our last day before our school holidays, I would like to share a few happy birthday messages to our friends in Class 8. Starting with Elsie who has her birthday today- whoop whoop happy birthday Elsie! It is also Vinnie's birthday on the 14th, Ryan H on the 15th, Leah the 17th, and Grace Du on the 25th - why not drop them a message to say Happy Birthday, if you can! When we return to school we can all celebrate these birthdays with you but for now let me just sing....Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy birthday dear children, Happy Birthday to you. Have a fabulous day!
As we are not in school tomorrow, we will be doing our Awards today instead. This week was particularly hard as everybody has been working hard to produce some fantastic, thoughtful pieces of work during Holy Week. The awards for this week are for two young ladies...
Yesterday was a busy day for many of you, despite the wonderful sunshine!
I have put up an Easter page of activities you can complete if you would like to during the holidays. There is a variety of different things you can choose to do.
I just want to say children a massive well done for how you have all worked so hard the past few weeks. They are quite unusual circumstances we are living under at the moment, but you have all kept working hard, helping at home and adapted to the situation. I am always proud of you, but especially these past few weeks.
I think your adults also deserve a massive pat on the back for as well as taking care of you, being your teachers at home. I appreciate there must be many demands with home-schooling so thank you so so much adults for your continued support and hard work. If only I had certificates for your adults too, children!
And just like that, it is the Easter break. Take care of yourselves children, keep being the bright lights at home I know you all are. Enjoy yourself, relax and re-charge ready for Week 4 of Home Learning when we will speak again on the 27th of April.
Missing you all terribly! Have a happy and holy Easter and don't forget to observe Mass.
Lots of virtual hugs,

Good morning and happy Wednesday Class 8! How was your Tuesday? I sat out in the sunshine for a while yesterday, did Joe Wicks and even did some yoga in the evening – I am really getting into it! I might even buy myself one of those special mats… I really recommend the Cosmic Yoga for children on Youtube if you want to practise some moves yourself and you’re not too busy.
I hear some of you are keeping in touch with each other and some even writing letters to one another – that is so lovely! Reach out to your friends, I am sure they are missing you just as much as I am. Take care today and have a lovely Wednesday. Remember the competition you can enter for your Easter garden or Bonnet. Details in yesterday’s post if you missed it!
Lots of love,

Good morning Class 8, and happy Tuesday! Tuesday - already, where on earth did Monday go? Today it is going to be sunny and quite warm, so make sure at some point you feel the sun on your skin, in whatever way you can! At midnight tonight it is the end of the Lenten battle, so make sure you log on to TTRS and have a look at that some point today.
Father Tom is holding a competition for you children. If you would like to make a Christian Easter Garden, an Easter Bonnet or paint an egg making them as different and exciting as you like. When you complete your masterpieces, email them to Father John and he will choose a winner for each category. Father John's email address is: email@example.com
Information is on the Parish website.
All entries will need to be in to Father John by Saturday 18th April - you can do it, good luck!
I hope you all enjoyed the first day of activities and I wonder which part of Holy Week learning you have done first. I heard from a few people yesterday up to some amazing things...
Thank you all for sharing with us what you have been up to. I look forward to seeing what today brings!
Stay safe, say your prayers, wash your hands and spread that positivity with your beautiful smiles.
Lots of love,
Miss McKeown x

Good morning Class 8. How was your weekend? Did you watch Mass yesterday for Palm Sunday? Your palms look absolutely fantastic, I was especially impressed when I saw Tobias had made one out of LEGO.
I have uploaded our Week 3 home learning, it is all based around the work we would be doing at school for Holy Week. I hope you enjoy it and use it as a chance to prepare for Easter.
It was great to hear from most of you last Friday. I have a few special mentions...
Well done to you all on another successful week. Now we are in Week 3, there comes a time of preparation and reflection during Holy Week. I hope you all enjoy the home learning.
Missing you lots,
