Dear Parents,

easter, passion, faith-7003335.jpg
This week’s Gospel reading from John really exemplified our Missions Statement. 
 
It tells of the time when Jesus appeared to Peter when he was fishing. Having stayed out all night fishing and catching nothing, Jesus encouraged the men to try one last time. They threw their nets into the sea once more and caught more fish than they could lift in their nets. Recognising Jesus, Peter jumped into the water and swam to Jesus. After breakfast Jesus asked Peter ‘Do you love me?’ Jesus asked Peter this three times which upset Peter. Peter was upset because he really did love Peter and he didn’t want Jesus to doubt this.
 
The children were tasked this week with showing ‘Love for One Another’ in many different ways. Those children awarded our Mission heart award this week really epitomise the high calibre of caring and giving children we have here at Charlton House.

Next Sunday, 8th May is the 4th Sunday of Easter – or Good Shepherd Sunday – when we pray for vocations to all states of life and ministry in the Church, but especially focus on Prayer for Vocations to the Sacred Priesthood. In the Gospel Acclamation (Jn10:14) Jesus tells us “I am the good shepherd…I know my own sheep and my own know me. Alleluia!” In the Gospel (Jn10:27-30), we hear Jesus say: ‘The sheep that belong to me listen to my voice; I know them and they follow me…”  Let us pray, especially on Sunday for our dear Fr Michael and for him to be forever remembered in our thoughts.
 
As the warmer weather returns, the adults and children will take every opportunity to take their learning outdoors. Indeed, in Year 4, the children have been studying the many different areas we have outside to consider where to site a new adventure playground. Their persuasive writing accounts were extremely well-formed.
 
Next week, we look forward to our whole school visit to Winchester Science Center. The children in upper and lower school will all participate in different activities before all watching the space show in the planetarium. More news to follow next week from our adventures.
 
I hope you all enjoy a very relaxing and well-earned rest this weekend.
 
God bless.
