    Values Day

     

    Yesterday, we spent the day revisiting our six core Christian values: Friendship, Truth, Respect, Thankfulness, Forgiveness and Perseverance.  The children spent the day taking part in six different activities to learn about each value.  Reverend Stéphane came in at different points in the day to help us reflect on our learning.

    A rainbow of hope

    You may have noticed a very colourful rainbow on our school railings.  Reverend Eleanor came into school for the morning to carry out an extended Collective Worship.  The rainbow has many meanings, and we actually have one on our school vision vessel to represent our seven learning behaviours.  This rainbow is also a symbol for hope for a healthy and happy year ahead.

    Wow!

    Chough Class enjoyed finding ‘wow’ factors in the world around us for this term’s RE topic ‘What do Christian’s learn from the creation story?’ We collected fascinating natural objects from around the school and discussed how intricate and amazing there were.  We then spent a quiet moment listening to nature’s symphony.

    Remembrance

    As we are unable to attend church at the moment we held our own Remembrance service on 11th November.  During half term the children painted stones with poppies which they brought to school and we placed on the memorial in the churchyard.

    Please have a look at them as you go past – they are beautiful!
