'Train up children in the way they should go

and when they are old they will not depart from it.' 

Proverbs 22:6

As a school community, we worked together to find a bible passage which would reflect our motto, vision and ethos. The passage above, which is taken from the Old Testament, is the result of this working group.  When the passage speaks of training children up in 'the way' we are reflecting on Jesus speaking to his disciple Thomas and saying: 'I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father except through me.' John 14:6

KS2 Carol Service.

KS2 had their Carol Service at All Saints Church on Friday 20th December 2019. All classes in KS2 took part in the service and parents attended.  

A lovely finish at the end of the term.

EYFS and KS1 Crib Service.

EYFS and KS1 went to All Saints Church for a crib Service .

Rev. Selina and Helena the School Caplin took the service. It was lovely to see all the children being involved in the story of Christmas.

It was also good to have time to reflect and think about the upcoming Christmas celebration and the reason why it is celebrated.

Well done to Badger Class for their fabulous performance of the Nativity - ‘A Miracle In Town’.  They showed perseverance with all their rehearsals. They did an amazing job when performing in front of their family and friends on Wednesday 11th December. They should be feeling very proud of their achievement.

Our Christian Value this half of term is Generosity. As Christmas is a time for giving, we wanted to support a charity. We decided to collect food for BESOM who are doing Christmas Hampers.  The. Value Ambassadors designed a flyer and put up posters around the school to promote this. 

Thank you for all the food donations from our families. It was very generous, especially at a time where a lot is going on and donations are being asked for various different events. 

The Value Ambassadors met with Bob House to pass on the donations. 

 

The value ambassadors showed the Royal British Legion our fabulous poppy displays for Remembrance. Lest we forget.

Harvest Experience

All the children from the school had the opportunity to go to All Saints Church and take part in the Harvest Experience. They took part in special carousels called:

  • Harvest of the Animals
  • Harvest of the Ocean
  • Harvest of the Grain
  • Harvest of the Garden and Fruit
  • Harvest of the Earth 
  • Harvest of the Tree

 

The children had a great time reflecting on why we celebrate Harvest.

Harvest

We celebrated Harvest. KS 1 and EYFS held their service in the school hall. Food donations were given to support the charity BESOM.

Our Christian Value this term is ‘Generosity’

 

Our new worship table arrived which we were able to get due to a donation received from our local councillor Marcus Barr. Our school Chaplain Helena Power attended Collective Worship to gift us with the worship table cloths she had made. Helena made these by following the winning designs from our worship day in July. Children from the school had a workshop and they designed cloths to be placed on the worship table in the colours of the Christian Calendar. Winners were selected from each colour of the church calendar. They are beautiful and our purple cloth, which represents Lent, is now being displayed proudly. Thank you to all involved who made this possible.

The Children and staff attended an Easter Experience at All Saints Church. The children took part in 6 different stations which explained the Easter story. From the last supper to Jesus’ empty tomb. A big thank you to all the volunteers and church staff who made the experience possible. The children really did have an enjoyable time and more importantly a time to reflect on their thoughts.
