Head teacher’s Weekly Update

A Week of Performances

This week began with our Advent assembly; where Stanley from Class Three, lit the second candle on the wreath, we listened to the Gospel read by Emilia in Class Five, and then there was time for quiet reflection. In the afternoon members of our Mini Vinnies visited the residents of Chaplefields Residential Home in Frodsham.  The children sang Christmas carols, sat, and chatted for a while.  The residents were delighted to see them, and said that they brightened up what was a wet Monday afternoon.

On Tuesday, Years Five and Six visited Chester Catholic High where they watched a performance of Cinderella.  They had a wonderful time and were very impressed with how talented the students are.  We thank all the students and staff at Chester Catholic High for this kind invitation; St. Luke’s pupils thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

On Wednesday, the whole school visited the Storyhouse theatre to watch a performance of ‘The Wizard of Oz’, this was an amazing experience for all; young and old. Thank you to The Friends of St. Luke’s, who through their fundraising were able to subsidise the cost of the trip.   As always we were very proud of all our pupils, particularly of our Year Six pupils with  the care they showed their buddies in the Reception class.

On Thursday and Friday the youngest members of our School; Key Stage One and EYFS, performed their Nativity plays.  Both performances were excellent; children confidently acting, singing, dancing, but most of all enjoying telling the most important story of all.  I along with your parents and teachers am very proud of you all.

There is lots to look forward to next week.  I hope you all have a very enjoyable weekend.

Best wishes

Headteacher's Weekly Update

We began the week with the first of our Advent assemblies; lighting the first candle on the Advent wreath.  All the children joined in prayer and reflection, taking time to think carefully about our preparation. Children in EYFS. Keys Stage One and lower Key Stage Two have taken home their class Nativity; this allows them to share with their families the true meaning of Christmas.

Thank you to Father Kenny and Father Colin for leading our penitential service this week, again a time for reflection and forgiveness.

Our school has contributed a tree to this year’s Christmas Tree Festival at Frodsham Methodist Church; we have continued the theme of Remembrance.  The choir joined other members of the community on Friday afternoon at the opening of the festival.  We do hope you had the chance to visit. 

The annual FoSL Christmas wreath making evening took place last Thursday night.  There was a great atmosphere; creative skills enhanced with a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie.  Those who attended, I am sure will have the best-dressed doors this Christmas time.

I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend; we are looking ahead to another busy week, I am particularly looking forward to our visit to the theatre and all the fun of the pantomime.

 

Best wishes

Multiskills 

What a fantastic event! Year 1 went all the way to the Leisure Centre to take part in this event as part of our sport cluster.  They all took part in a variety of events from the sack race to the beanbag balance.  It was great to be active! Special mentions to our 3 adult helpers who became team captains for the afternoon.
