Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul – and sings the tunes without the words – and never stops at all.

Emily Dickinson

We ended the half term with a wonderful Platinum Jubilee Celebration Day. The children learnt about the Queen, enjoyed a whole school picnic lunch and immersed themselves in themes and events linked to different decades of the Queen’s reign. You will also have seen that your child has come home with a special keepsake – a book about Queen Elizabeth II, something that every child in the UK has received.


  • School closed for half term today and will open again on Tuesday 7th June from 8:40am

Mental Health Workshops: 9-10.15am in our art room at school on the following dates:

  • Supporting children with stress/anxiety – Thursday 16th June

Parents that attended the first and second workshops were incredibly positive and shared their ‘take-aways’ from the sessions:

“Listen more, validate children’s feelings more and let them know it will get better.”

“Give room for emotions.”

“Use techniques at home.”

“Try to keep calm.”

“Try to listen without fixing.”

“It is nice to have something for parents.”

  • Quiz Night – Thursday 7th July
  • Summer Fair – Saturday 9th July

Christian Value – Compassion

In this Platinum Jubilee year of Queen Elizabeth II, we reflect on her 70 years of service to our nation. One role that the Queen is particularly passionate about is her support of charities, in fact she is among the world’s greatest supporters of charities and has helped the many organisations of which she is patron to raise a great deal of money, which in turn supports those most in need. The Queen is known to have done more for charity than any other monarch which is a sign of her deep compassion for others. Today we have helped in these fundraising efforts by donating to Friends of the Elderly, one of the charities for which the Queen is patron. Thank you to all those who donated today; all of the money collected will help this charity’s work supporting vulnerable older people. As Supreme Governor of the Church of England, the Queen shares our Christian Value of compassion, and no doubt draws inspiration as we do from Bible passages such as the one below.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.

2 Corinthians 1:3-4

Wellbeing Tip of the Week: Self-Compassion

This week’s tip comes from Anita Vital, who has created the below infographic to remind us not to be too hard on ourselves. Sometimes, when we have a bad day, we can start to doubt our capabilities, and we can allow self-criticism to flood our thoughts. But by being kind and compassionate to ourselves, we can turn these thoughts into more positive and uplifting feelings.
