St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents & Carers,

This week has been RE week.  The children have been learning about different faiths and considering big questions like ‘if people believe God is everywhere why do we have churches?’  As ever the children have impressed us with the respectful, thoughtful way they have approached their learning.

You should have received information about Film Night yesterday.  It is on Thursday 2nd Feb.  There will be no Recorders and Orchestra that day.

Parent teacher online meetings will be held the week beginning 13th February. Letters about this will be emailed to you later today. There will be no afterschool clubs that week. 

Tomorrow Harriers will be leading our Collective Worship.  Their assembly starts at about 9.10.  I will text out the code word in the morning.  On Friday 3rd Kites will be taking the lead.

Your children should be coming home with the words for 2 poems they are learning as part of our annual House Verse Speaking Challenge.  Due to covid it has been a number of years since we were able to do this.  Each house learn 2 poems, one I have chosen for everyone and one the house has chosen.  Your first reaction will be they will never learn these how ridiculous. However, every year the children rise to the challenge, learn the poems and perform them together.  Please help your child to learn the poems at home.

I am attaching information about this year’s Fairtrade competition for your child.  The choir have been asked to sing at the prize giving for this competition on Saturday 1st April.  I do not yet know where or at what time.  As soon as I know you will be asked to indicate your child’s availability.  We will do it if enough children are free, though we do appreciate it is the first day of the Easter Holiday.

Whitfield Parish has sent through the following invitation to you all:

Stay happy and healthy
