The Grand Old Duke of York – Year 5 at Sayers Croft

Mrs Jewitt joined Ms Bracher, Miss Bayon, Mr Walker and the Year 5 children at Sayers Croft today.  They marched all the way up Pitch Hill, had a picnic lunch, and then marched all the way down!  Mrs Jewitt said “there was great teamwork and encouragement from everyone.  A great achievement!”

STOMP Charity Walk

The whole school took part in a SCHOOL STOMP this week to raise awareness and money for ‘Health Poverty Action’.  We stomped around the local area chanting and cheering!

Health Poverty Action says:
“Everyone deserves the best chance at good health, regardless of where they are born. An astonishing number of children in the world do not reach their 5th birthday.  The risk of disease, insufficient nutritionand poor sanitation coupled with lack of health facilities means some of the children will not reach adulthood.  These deaths are preventable.”

The pupils of St Matthew’s raised a magnificent £213 for this important charity!

Writing Club and the Wave of Prayer

THYKINGDOMCOME

Inspired by the Wave of Prayer (8th-15th May), Ms Green’s Writing Club wrote some prayers.  Here they are!

Dear God

Thank you for believing in us, each and every day. Thank you for helping us to think positively, even when we face difficulties. Thank you for all the beautiful things that you have created for us.

Thank you for all the wonderful children at St Matthew’s and for how special they make our school. Thank you for making Mrs Jewitt such a brilliant headteacher, for helping her to take such good care of us and for our friends and teachers in the school; they make us happy.

Please watch over us all. Please help us all in our times of need. Please give us your blessing and your patience.

Thank you for our inner peace.

Amen

By Louisa, Hong-Anh, Phuong (Year 6) and Elijah (Year 5)

 

Dear God

Thank you for this beautiful Earth and everything that we have. Thank you for all the plants and trees we have today. Without them, our planet wouldn’t be such a comforting home. We also thank you for the flowers and animals. We pray that there will be more homes for animals in need.

In Your name

Amen

Sneha (Year 4)

 

Dear God

Please help all those who are in need.

Please help people in wars to find peace.

Please help those who are sick to find good health.

Let it rain where countries are dry.

Let food grow where there is hunger.

Please give us positivity so that we can share it everywhere we go.

Please help us to love everybody and let them love us in return.

Please bless all the people around the world.

Amen

Bitania and Bess (Year 5)

Reception Places at St Matthew’s School, Westminster

The outcome of applications should now be known for children starting school in September and we are looking forward to welcoming to St Matthew’s a number of new children in September and, of course, to be welcoming back children who are currently in our Nursery class.

If you are still looking for a school place for September 2016 – even if you do not live locally but perhaps work in Westminster or Victoria – then we do still have some spaces at St Matthew’s and we would be happy to hear from you.  Please contact the school office.
