Walk to School Week, 15th – 19th May
During the week 15th-19th May, we would like to ask you and your children to walk to school. This is a national initiative run by Living Streets in order to encourage fewer drivers on the road, thus improving local air quality, and giving children – and their parents – more exercise!
To support this, we would like to the children to walk to school with a difference.
|Mad-cap Monday||Walk to school wearing the silliest hat you can find!|
|Trainer Tuesday||Wear your brightest trainers to walk to school … without being told off!|
|Wooly-Wednesday||Wear your favourite jumper to keep you warm while you walk to school|
|Think-it Thursday||On your walk to school, think about what could be improved so that more children could walk to school. Give your ideas to Ms Phillips – they’ll be a reward for the best ones.|
|Funky Footwear Friday||Wear your snazziest and jazziest shoes to walk to school – just make sure they’re safe (no high heels or platforms, please!)|
The Junior Travel Ambassadors will be out and about taking photos of hats, jumpers and fabulous footwear! Winners of Think-it Thursday will be announced in Celebration Assembly on Friday.

Here are some activities for the Easter weekend:
We had a lovely service in church on Monday morning, thank you to those of you who joined us. It was a good way to start the week. On behalf of all the staff I would like to wish you all a peaceful Eastertide and share with you a prayer for Easter.
God of wonder, God of new life,
On Good Friday we remember how the friends of Jesus cried tears at the foot of the cross.
They were sad and quiet as he was laid in the tomb.
On Easter day we will remember how their sadness turned to joy when Jesus rose from the dead and returned.
He brought the promise of new life and forgiveness for us all.
Help us to remember every day
The gift of your son Jesus to the world, and always be thankful.
