Dear Parents and Carers, 

Despite coping with the current challenges, Science Week went ahead last week with a particular focus on excess packaging and caring for our environment. We had two scientists visit school which gave the children an opportunity to ask lots of scientific questions including some about Coronavirus. With that thorny subject in mind I saw the following yesterday – ‘Viruses are contagious but so is panic, hysteria, fear, calm, love, enthusiasm, kindness and joy so choose wisely’.

As we are all likely to be spending more of our time at home over the coming weeks and months, try to take time to focus on the many positive things in life. Our #Live Lent challenge this week encourages to do more to enjoy nature and help to protect it – enjoy the signs of spring around us and I hope that Mothering Sunday gives some of you the opportunity to enjoy some special treats.

With very best wishes Alison This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Chaplains Message

When about to lay eggs, Eagles identify a high place on a cliff where no predators can reach. The nest is made using thorns, twigs, grass and completed by them using their own feathers. The thorns on the outside of the nest protect the eaglets from possible intruders. However, when the eaglets have grown they are encouraged to fly the nest and the soft layering is removed by the adult eagles! On the surface this experience could seem harsh, but as a picture this can tell us that being too comfortable where we are may result in us not experiencing life to the fullest. Living outside our comfort zones for short times can indeed be uncomfortable, but often it can help us soar and reach new heights in life that we didn't expect.
