The beautiful spring came, and when nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also.Harriet Ann Jacobs
We hosted our first mental health and wellbeing workshop for parents this week and feedback from parents was very positive. Please put the following dates in your diaries – the sessions are from 9-10:15am in our art room at school.
- Supporting parent/carer wellbeing – Thursday 26th May
- Supporting children with stress/anxiety – Thursday 16th June
On Tuesday this week our Y3/4 football teams attended a tournament at Parliament Hill. All the children played fantastically well, and their wonderful enthusiasm was not dampened at all by the heavy rain! The girls won three of their matches, drew two and lost one; the boys won all six of their matches. Both of these performances were good enough for our girls’ and boys’ teams to progress to the finals, which take place on Tuesday next week. While we are delighted with the children’s sporting prowess, we are even more proud of their superb attitude and behaviour, the support they showed each other and the example they all set of our 3Cs. We are grateful to the parents, carers, brothers and sisters who came to support the children. We’ll see you next week, hopefully with better weather!
The PiP tea-towel fundraiser is now open to purchases on ParentPay – £5 per tea-towel. Children will be drawing their portraits at school next week so please ensure that you put your order in by 20th May.
Christian Value – Compassion
As we reflect on how we can put ourselves in the shoes of others, we must think about how we listen to other people. One of the nicest things that we can do for others is to listen to them really carefully. When we listen to people we need to concentrate with all of our mind, instead of pretending to listen and actually thinking about something else. We also need to look at them; there will always be time to have our say later. The important thing is to give all our attention to the other person who is speaking. It shows them that we genuinely care. If we practise really listening to others, this means that we will also hear God when he speaks to us.
Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger.James 1:19

Wellbeing Tip of the Week: Managing Worries
From time to time, we can all feel worried or uncertain about things. It is natural to feel this way, especially about the future, or things we have limited control over. However, too much worry can lead to feelings of anxiety and tension and that can often affect our wellbeing too.
Here are some tips that might help us manage our worries and the feelings that they evoke:
- The 5-year rule. Think about whether this will matter to you in five years’ time. Will you even remember that you were worrying about this in 5 years, or even in a week, a month, or a year?
- Writing solutions. Write a list of things you could do to solve your worry, and if there’s anything you can do now, then do it straight away. If not, make a plan of when, where and how you’ll tackle the problem. When you’ve done what you can, continue with your day, and cast the worry aside.
- Share your worries. Worries do not survive well outside our heads. Talking to a friend or relative can help us see the bigger picture and think of different solutions.
