Dear Parents and Carers,
Spring Term promises to be an eventful one, as always the children will be expected to do their very best in their studies, but there is a busy school schedule too: trips out at least one per term per class; a programme of class assemblies; school and parish Masses; workshops for parents in EYFS and KS1 as well as events for all to celebrate together. The exciting highlights in the early part of this term include our experienced brass instrument players, Year 6 pupils, performing at the South Bank Centre in a joint performance with secondary school pupils. Year 4 continuing their choral project with Westminster Choir School, as well as their golf lessons with St John’s of course!
As part of our Modern Foreign Language initiative with Mandarin and to celebrate Chinese New Year we are looking forward to a special exhibition of art and song in our school hall to mark the day. Our artwork we will then forward on to a school in China with whom we are beginning to foster links.
We encourage our children and parents to be active members of our community here in Peckham and promote the initiatives identified through our partnership with Peckham Citizens. We are a founding member of this group of eleven community organisations, working together for the common good. We hope to work with our neighbours in Oliver Goldsmiths and Harris Academy on the findings of our Autumn term ‘listening Campaign’ about ‘Safety in Peckham’.
We continue to promote Financial Education in school and encourage everyone to be part of our School Saving Bank which is open each week and through which we hope as many children as possible will get into good saving habits for their future. Of course Lent and Easter will focus highly in our school as we move into the second half of the Spring Term. Please keep in touch; read the weekly newsletter; talk to us - at the beginning and end of the day and through our ‘Suggestion Box’.
