The Blessed William Marsden gave his life heroically on the Isle of Wight in 1586. He was shipwrecked there due to a thunderstorm at sea. While he was heard praying. he was arrested for treason. He became a martyr after spending time in prison and he used his execution to warn others that it was treason to become and priest on the Isle of Wight and to travel to England thereafter.
Our online scrapbook will have photographs of our favourite moments throughout the year.

Important information about our weekly routines:
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, we will have PE. For the first half of the autumn term, the children will be learning how to play hockey from a South Ribble coach. Please make sure your child has a white t-shirt, navy blue shorts, socks and suitable pumps for PE days. Also, they can bring outdoor activewear for the colder months when we will play outside.
Your child has the opportunity to have their take-home reading books changed on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Books will only be changed if there is a dated parent or carer's signature on the reading record. For each signed reading session at home, the children will receive a tally toward their 150 Read Challenge. When 150 'reads' are completed, then students get to choose a chapter book to take home as a gift.
Homework this year will consist of reading nightly for at least 15 minutes, memorising a times table and learning a spelling list. On Thursdays, we will have a times table test and a spelling test to check for understanding. New spelling words and times tables will also be assigned on Thursdays after the tests. Other homework may be assigned throughout the year if special projects arise.
If you have any other questions or concerns, then please stop by any time to discuss.
