A TRIBUTE TO OUR LOVELY MRS.FELL
It is so very sad that we are coming to terms with the passing of Mrs.Fell. Year 6 - we are strong together and we will be there for each other, we are sure of that.
Mrs.Fell was a lovely lady - a term she would often use about us two which lifted our spirits and made us smile. Being at St.Luke’s made Mrs.Fell feel at home and we brought her joy.
She cared about you all and enjoyed her lessons with you. She loved to join in with our discussions, particularly about things she felt strongly about and I had a text from her after we had talked about Marcus Rashford’s campaign so passionately in class.
As a teacher, she knew that learning is a lifelong process and that everyday we find out something new – and that is something she would want you to remember.
We will still be making her “builder’s tea” for weeks to come and expecting her arrival through the door as you will too.
Being sad is a natural thing when we are grieving but also is remembering the good times and giving thanks to God for them. We will do both, we are sure.
We will also remember her family in our thoughts and prayers – especially her husband Graeme and sons Will and Ed who are part of our Fellowship of St.Luke’s.
We can take comfort from the fact that she has a place in heaven and has, we have no doubt, already shared her delightful smile there as she did here.
Thinking of you all,
Mrs.Coates and Mrs.Harrison
It will be really good to see you all on Wednesday - we have some great things planned for the rest of the term including looking at World War I and war poetry; how the heart works and our D.T. project all about food.
You should, of course, keep working on your pack and make sure you bring in the homework I gave you including your model birds. I've seen some of these on photos your parents have sent me and I know that we are going to create a great display.
You should all know your personal passwords for the ICT programs we use such as IDL, Lexia, RM Maths and Linguascope (Spanish). If you can't remember your password, ask your parents to send me an email and I will send it on to you. These are a great way of keeping your brains ticking over!
I know many of you joined in with the Act of Remembrance at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Westminster Abbey and made your own poppy tributes. When we are in on Wednesday we will be remembering together those who gave their lives for our freedom and placing our poppies in the trees with those made by the rest of the school.
It would be good to have learned by heart the poem said at Remembrance events which I have put below (learning poetry by heart is part of the Y6 curriculum). We will be saying this as part of our class tribute.
From "For the Fallen" by Laurence Binyon
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them
Remember to find out about why the Great War started which will help you on our return. Make a few notes in your homework book.
You could also start to find out about the parts of the heart and how it functions ready for your Science lessons.
Don't forget to bring in any Children in Need donations...we will do our 10-11 rambling laps of the track this Friday, weather permitting!
Have a good week everyone. Take care and do your best. We are thinking about you all.
Our New Class Prayer
