Knight pointing out where to find the Ten Commandments in his church. Rev. Knight Lays Down the Law! As part of the R.E. curriculum, Year 4 have been studying aspects of The Old Testament. After learning that the Bible is like a library of books that is divided into two parts, they made creation wheels and listened to some of the stories of the Old Testament. On a wet, Wednesday afternoon last week, the children walked to Leyland Road Church and worked alongside Rev. Knight. He explained about the Ten Commandments, their meaning and how they were given to Moses on tablets of stone. We all agreed that rules play a very important part in our lives and the children worked in groups studying, illustrating and creating their own set of rules.

  4. 4. News team Molly Glinn, Hannah Tear, Megan Powderly, Jamie Russell, Katy Watkinson, Taylor McKenzie & Finn Cromack Lost Property We have several children's watches in our lost property, an ipod shuffle, keys, a pair of children’s glasses, earrings and jewellery. If you think you or your child may have lost any of these items, please call in at the school office. After School Activities In line with our Missing Child Policy we will always ring you to see where your child is if they have not turned up for an after school activity. Please don't let your child sign up if they are not willing to attend every week. However, if your child is not going to be participating in an activity it is vitally important that you let the teacher know. You can either send in a letter, ring or email Please be aware teachers cannot commence any of the activities until they know children are safe in your care. A lot of unnecessary time is wasted lately trying to locate missing children! Southport Lifeboat Charity Fern, Darcy, Harry & Thea, of the School Council, are pictured with this super photograph of the Southport Lifeboat. It was presented with thanks to the school for the wonderful support we gave to this local charity, last academic year. School Meals Catering staff will be unable to work in the kitchen from Monday 29th to prepare food and this is where we will need your support. Children who usually pay for hot dinners will have to bring in a packed lunch for possibly several weeks until the kitchen can be re-opened. We really do appreciate it is not an ideal time especially during the cold weather season when a choice of a hot meal is preferable. We are able to provide children having free meals with a packed lunch as these can be brought in from another dispatch kitchen in the area. We apologise for the inconvenience this is likely to cause and really hope it won't be for too long.
