St. John Rigby
1570-21 June 1600
Saint John Rigby was born in 1570 at Harrock Hall, Eccleston, Lancashire. He was the fifth or sixth son of Nicholas and Mary Rigby. He is one of the "Forty Martyrs of England and Wales" and died for his Catholic beliefs in London in 1600. Many years later, in 1970, Rigby was canonized and his feast day is 25th October.
Our online scrapbook will have photographs of our favourite moments throughout the year.

Important information about our weekly routines:
On Wednesdays we will have PE. 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. The year 4 students specifically will need to have their swimming kit (including a swimming cap and a towel) on Wednesdays.
Your child has the opportunity to have their take-home reading books changed weekly. Children will be informed of what day their book change day is. Please ensure books are in on the assigned day. 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 new times table weekly and learning a spelling list weekly. On Fridays, 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 Fridays after the tests. All homework will be available online.
If you have any other questions or concerns, then please do not hesitate to get in touch :)
Who is behind the Mask?
Join in with our World Book Day Challenge!
World Book Day this year falls on the 4th March.
We would like to celebrate this by having a Masked Reader event. To take part you need to wear a mask – this could be one you have, or one you make, and either taking a photograph of yourself holding a book, or a short video clip of you reading the blurb of the book, or describing the book.
If you send these to your teacher through Purple Mash, and they will put them on your Class Page for you to look at and try to guess who the Masked Reader is for the children in your class.
