St Albert’s is ……
A place where the child is at the centre of all we do
A place where expectations and standards are high
A place where children’s learning experiences are inspiring and memorable
A place where everyone listens
And a place where doors are opened to dreams.

TTRS Easter Battles
As you all know, there will not be any work set by teachers this week, however we want to encourage lots of fun over your Easter Holidays, so what better way than a good healthy competition! You may not be able to see your class friends, but let’s log on to TTRS and start competing with them! The more of your classmates that compete, the more likely you are to win, so announce it to all of your friends and let’s have some fun! The competitions will run from 9.00pm-5.00pm so log on as much as you want throughout the day.
Year 3 vs Year 4
Year 5 vs Year 6
The Runner up Battle and the Winners Battle
These will be announced on Wednesday evening, so be sure to check on your Class Dojos/SeeSaw or Twitter for updates!
Good luck everyone!
Our parents and children have been doing an amazing job of staying positive, staying safe and at home and completing the remote learning that teachers have set. The teachers are really pleased with the interaction via Dojo, Tapestry or SeeSaw. Over the Easter holidays, however, we think that it is really important that you all have to rest, down time, family time and fun. We will, therefore, not be posting any work for the Easter period. We will continue to post work for those who would like some structure etc after the Easter Holidays.
Please continue to keep safe and enjoy the Easter holidays in whatever form they may take.
A poem by John O’Donohue called “This Is The Time To Be Slow”.
This is the time to be slow,
Lie low to the wall
Until the bitter weather passes.
Try, as best you can, not to let
The wire brush of doubt
Scrape from your heart
All sense of yourself
And your hesitant light.
If you remain generous,
Time will come good;
And you will find your feet
Again on fresh pastures of promise,
Where the air will be kind
And blushed with beginning.
