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 and Thursdays, 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 every weekday. 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 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.
