I kept always two books in my pocket: one to read, one to write in.Robert Louis Stevenson
We hope that lots of children have been writing at home in preparation for entering the school’s writing competition after half term – we look forward to hearing their creative ideas! Please see the letter from Mr Martisius (sent home yesterday) for details on this, and also on the separate BBC writing competition.
We look forward to seeing parents and carers next week at your meetings with class teachers. Please can we remind parents that the schedule for teachers is very full so please arrive on time. If for any unforeseen circumstances you need to change the meeting, please contact the school office.
These were sent home in your child’s bag this week. Please ensure you return your proof cards to your class teacher or the office on Monday 6th November so that your orders can be sent to print.

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, by encouraging one another.Hebrews 10:24-25
On 1st November, All Saints’ Day, we celebrate all saints who are in heaven. These include all known and unknown saints. It is a holiday rooted in the belief that the world is spiritually connected to heaven.
This is then followed by All Souls’ Day where we remember the souls of all who have died, in the hope and faith that they will join the communion of saints in Heaven. While this is in many ways a day of sadness, it is a feast that serves as a valuable reminder of God’s great love – thanks to the sacrifice made on our behalf by Jesus, the way to Heaven has been opened to us. The sorrow of being parted from those we love remains with us always, because the grief we feel is a direct link to the love we have given. But God’s love is far greater than anything we can possibly feel; it ensures that we never feel alone and should never feel afraid. His love spurs us on in times of sorrowful reflection to live our lives full of love and faith, in the hope that we are eventually reunited with the loved and lost, and with God Himself.
He heals the broken-hearted, and binds up their wounds.Psalms 147:3
