St James Primary School Newsletter

Respect Perseverance Trust

It is so exciting this week to be beginning to attend sporting events again. For the first time in nearly two years we are able to send a team to the girls’ football and two teams to the year 5/6 tennis competitions. Good luck to everyone involved.

Please keep a space in your diary for the first fund raising event that The Friends of St James have been able to hold since the Christmas Fayre in 2019. A flyer has been sent out via Parentmail and I know that the committee would welcome offers of help. All of the money raised goes directly to supporting us to offer your children the very best experiences we can.

Focus on Rosen Class

It’s all about Japan in Rosen Class! We began the term learning a traditional Japanese fan dance. It was quite tricky at first but, with lots of practice, we have mastered the routine and have spent some time teaching it to the children in Inkpen Class. We also learned some interesting facts about what particular colours of fans represent. Red and white fans will bring good luck and gold fans will bring good fortune. Did you know that Japanese people believe that the bamboo spokes of an open fan represent the many choices of paths to follow in their lives? We are also learning different Japanese traditional tales. Our favourite so far is called Urashima Taro!
