There are many little ways to enlarge your child's world. Love of books is the best of all.'
We are all very excited about our new reading initiative. Every week now from Monday- Sunday all children who read 5X a week will be entered into a weekly raffle with the chance of winning a £5 voucher. The first raffle will be drawn on Monday 7th February based on reading from Monday January 31st-Sunday 6th February.
The Church is currently following a directive from Pope Francis to focus on reflection and sharing of the whole church. Pope Francis states,
"By walking together, and together reflecting on the journey made, the Church will be
able to learn from what it will experience which processes can help it to live
communion, to achieve participation, to open itself to mission."
At Saint Ambrose we aim to enable families to experience the wide parish Community and for us to reflect and learn please complete the survey, see link below. The results will be shared with the parish to enable us to grow and learn together.
PLEASE EMAIL email@example.com if your son (years 4-6) would like to train as an altar server or your son or daughter (years 3-6) would like to read at Parish Masses.
On Sunday after Mass in the Parish Centre there will be a celebration in honour of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. Father Lamb would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our families to attend this event.
Safer Internet Day 2022 will be celebrated next week on Tuesday with the theme ‘All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online’.
Safer Internet Day 2022 celebrates young people’s role in creating a safer internet.

Exploring respect and relationships online’.Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, Safer Internet Day is celebrated in over a hundred countries coordinated by the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, and national Safer Internet Centres across Europe
Next half term we are hoping to have an art project led by an illustrator involving all children. The project will involve producing a piece of collaborative art work on the playground wall. In preparation for this staff gave up an hour of their day on Wednesday to paint the first section of the wall. If you could spare an hour to paint the wall on one of the following sessions please book a place on Parent Pay. Thank you to the staff team.
Thursday 10th February from 1.30pm onwards.
Monday 14th February from 1.30pm onwards.

On Monday morning, we will be celebrating children from each class who have followed our Catholic Mission: 'we do our best by following Jesus' in our Celebration assembly. The children receiving a certificate are:
|Year Group||Curriculum Award||Discipleship Award|
|Year 2||Summer||Amelia F|
|Year 3||Robyn H||Franky|
|Year 4||Lara and Xavier||Isaac|
Writing is an important part of our daily lives. It is, however, a difficult skill to learn and master. By getting a head start with some simple activities, you can help your son or daughter begin to develop writing skills at an early age. The writing that I have seen this week across school shows our children will be well equipped to write in there daily lives. Please read the wonderful piece of writing below from Joshua in Year 1.
Year 4 have really enjoyed learning about haikus this week. Take a look at our class haiku we wrote in groups!
Take a look at some of the wonderful writing Year 5 have produced all about the Water Cycle. They are very informative!
Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed their time with Father Lamb on Monday. Father Lamb involved them with all aspects of the Mass and they had the opportunity to demonstrate our virtues 'curious and active'. Everyone learnt a lot!
I am told that the prospect of Saturday’s rematch has reminded everyone of the 2-1 win against West Ham in 1998.
GOOD LUCK KIDDERMINSTER HARRIERS
This term, Father Lamb has kindly offered to celebrate Mass with our pupils where he will go through each part of the Mass with the children and answer any questions they have about it. This will enable all pupils to show the virtues of being curious and active and will be a wonderful opportunity for them. Unfortunately due to current COVID guidance parents/carers will not be able to attend Mass with the children.
