Year 4

 

Week beginning 4th March

 

Thursday 7th March is World Book Day! Students can come dressed as an animal to school.

Another reminder that our school uniform is an identity unique to the children of St. James’. It gives us a sense of belonging and pride. Recently, we have noticed quite a few children who are wearing clothes that are not associated with the St. James’ uniform. The policy is on the website, under the parent section about our uniform. We would expect all children to be wearing our winter uniform now, with a guideline of October half term for the change of uniform. Please note: Students should be wearing black sturdy practical school shoes (boots, trainers or high–heeled shoes are not permitted)

Worship theme of the week:

New Life

John 14:6  Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” 

John 10:10  “I have come that they may have life and have it more abundantly.”
