'Train up children in the way they should go
and when they are old they will not depart from it.'
We had a whole school worship day on Wednesday 27th June. This was arranged by our RE Co-ordinator and School Chaplin. We had a lot of exciting activities planned. The day started with a school assembly where Helena shared with the children what they would be doing for the day.
Our day was based around the saying "I am..." A local lady has made banners showing Jesus as "I am" for example "I am the bread of life" and "I am the light of the world" These banners were displayed at All Saints Church. Each class went to see the banners and had time to talk about what they could see and what they could mean.
When the classes returned from the Church they all made a sheep. The sheep have been put together on one large collage to show "I am the Good Shepherd." Every child visited Rev. Selina and Anne and learnt about the different colours used in the Church Calendar.
KS2 then had a workshop with Fiona Brown. Here they designed a worship table cloth using the different colours. all these designs are going to be judged and there will be a winner selected for each colour. These winning designs are going to be made into a worship table cloths for the school to be used at the appropriate times in the church calendar.
KS1 and EYFS spent the afternoon recreating some of the banners they had seen at the church in the morning to display in there classrooms.
Before Christmas Reception and KS1 attended a Crib Service at All Saints Church. This Service was held by Rev. Tim Pottage who told the story to the nativity to the children. We also sang 'Away in the Manger' and some of their songs from their Nativities. They had a lovely time and it was good to see them enjoying the Church.
