We follow the Big Questions that link to our RE Programme "Come and See." As well as this we add our own as a school.
This term some of our questions are;
Which Christian value is most important and why?
Can we serve both God and money?
Can we do the impossible?
As part of our worship we use John Burland's music. John Burland lives in Australia but we were very lucky to have a concert led by him through Zoom. John Burland is well known for his uplifting and meaningful songs which the children participated in vocally and physically. John Burland performed for the children and staff.
John visited our school a few years ago and led a concert for children, staff and parents. Hopefully he will visit us again soon for another live concert. Here are some pictures from the day.
Our Year 6 pupils attended a special Remembrance service at our local Peace Garden alongside members of the community.
This service was attended by our Mayor Jackie Oakes and Mayoress Christine Lamb.
Our children were commended on their respectfulness and grace during the service.
Our Year 6 pupils, led us in prayer and sang collectively with the community.
Week commencing: 22/11/21
This year we have been doing lots of work in school around St. Joseph.
The Pope declared this year the "Year of St. Joseph". As this special focus year is coming to an end, a special set of prayers called the "Novena to Saint Joseph" have been shared in our worship this morning. Our prayer leaders led us in prayer and we reflected on who Joseph was as a person and what we have learnt from him this year.
