  • 'The Light of the World' (Mrs Bratley)

    'Light of the World' underpins our new school vision and children have been undertaking different tasks to help them understand what this means.

    Our reception children in Potter Class have been exploring light and dark and have talked about how God helps us to see in the dark and guides us. They related light to kindness and being happy and darkness to unkindness and being sad.


    Our year one and two children in Nightingale Class discussed how our 5 school values: Compassion, Citizenship, Caring, Creativity and Courage can link to 'Let Your Light Shine'.  They thought about how they could let their 'light' shine by making sure that their share their talents and good qualities with others, rather than keeping them hidden/in the dark.  Inspired by a book that Luca had brought into school to share with everyone, they made their own picture card creation that showed their good qualities/talents only being shown when they are in the light.



    In Class Lowry, year three and four children used the Bible to carry out research to find out when light is referred to.  Discussion was had about what they think the references meant.  Links were made with our school values.





  • It's All Good - We are made in God's image (Mrs Bratley)

    In this week's assembly, we used 'Care', one of our school values to help us explore what it means to be in God's image. A poem about the Creation story was shared to help us think about the most special thing that we thought God had made and to help us realise how very special God is.


    We also watched a great clip about the Creation story.  By seeing the Creation Story presented in a poem and through art in an animation, we were also able to think about Creativity - another one of our school values.

    We decided that God was the most special thing that God made as people are made in God's image.  I explained that part of this is to do with creativity - with making, imagining and loving, like God did when he made the world.
