Nothing is impossible; it just hasn't been learnt yet.

Jesus looked at them and said, 'With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.'  Mark 10:27



Happy New Year Year 6!

Let us take a moment to reflect...

O God, by the leading of a star you manifested your only Son to the peoples of the earth.  Lead us, who know you now by faith, to your presence, where we may see your glory face to face; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

Christmas 2018!

Wow! What a way to end the Autumn Term!  Year 6, along with the rest of KS2 and Year 2, came together to show everyone the true meaning of Christmas with their wonderful Nativity performance. Beautiful singing and acting ensured that the story of Jesus' birth was really brought to life, leaving us all with a real sense of peace, hope, love, patience and joy.

Merry Christmas everyone! 

A Christmas Prayer

Bless us Lord this Christmas with Peace that surpasses all understanding, Joy that is beyond all material possessions, Love that knows no boundaries and Strength that emanates from Faith in you.


Christmas Nativity

Whole School Advent Retreat Day

St Rose welcomed back Emily and Dan who led us in a wonderful retreat all about Advent.  We learnt the true meaning of Advent and that it is a journey and time of waiting.  We understand that we need to be patient and enjoy all the wonderful things that we can take from Advent such as Peace, Love, Joy and Hope.  

'He will be a joy and a delight to you, and many will rejoice because of his birth, for he will be great in the sight of Lord.'

- Luke 1:14-15

Children in Need!

It is that time of year again and St Rose have done brilliantly with their task to 'Get your ears on!'  Well done to the children in Year 6 who put their creative skills to the test and made some brilliant ears!  I was particularly impressed with how they strutted their stuff on the catwalk!  I would also like to say a big thank you to Ben's Nan who kindly made Children in Need cakes for the children of Year 6!   Everybody thoroughly enjoyed them!

We look forward to finding out the total amount of money raised!

'Not all of us can do great things.  But we can do small things with great love.' - Mother Teresa

Thanks Ben's Nan!

SATs Booster

After school boosters begin today (Tuesday 6th November) and will continue every Tuesday and Thursday until SATs week.  We hope to have 100% attendance but understand that your child may not always be able to attend.   The sessions will finish at 4.15 and the children can be collected from the main office.  It is extremely important that you let myself or the office know if your child will not be attending, especially if your child usually walks home alone. 

Thank you for your cooperation!

Mrs Richardson

Almighty God,

Please help me in my exams.

Help me to face them with courage and peace.

Help me to understand the questions that are asked, 

to remember what I have studied and to express my answers clearly.

Guide and direct me in all of my decisions and help me 

especially to discover my true vocation to love and serve you in my life.

I ask this through Christ our Lord.


Parents Evening

Parents evening will take place on Tuesday 13th November 2018.  Today (Tuesday 6th) I have handed out your allotted times. I have tried hard to accommodate your requests but if you are unable to make the time that has been given to you, please let me know and I will try to change the time or we can rearrange to another day.  Thank you very much!

I look forward to speaking to all!

Mrs Richardson


Our class novel for this half term is 'The House with Chicken Legs.' A wonderful story based on an ancient Russian fairy tale about Baba Yaga.  The children are really enjoying it!  It has also been interesting to compare the story with some traditional fairy tales, especially the not so pleasant Grimm's Fairy Tales!

Ordering key events in a story.

Year 6 had to sort through two versions of a story and then order them correctly.  They did really well in organising their sections, demonstrating good skimming and scanning skills, and a great ability to order key events. 

The children have all worked extremely hard with their swimming these past two weeks! It has been quite intense going every day, but the improvement is really something! Well done Year 6!

Please find below some important information for the beginning of the year.

Swimming will start Monday 17th September, every day for two weeks!

Year 6 Class Mass

Our first Mass of the year will take place on Wednesday 12th September at St Rose Church at 10.00am

We hope to see you there!



P.E will take place every Wednesday afternoon! Please ensure your child has everything they need.
