HARVEST! Harvest is a great time of year, when we can celebrate all the lovely food we have! However some people don't have sufficient food, so our school have collected food to donate to others. Look how much we collected! WELL DONE EVERYONE!
TRUST IS OUR SCHOOL VALUE THIS TERM, WHY IS IT IMPORTANT, WHO CAN WE TRUST?
What is important about trust?
Young Worship Leaders:
Trust is our School value this term!
We are the Young Worship Leaders and we have taken photographs of people around the school, that show trust in teachers friends and playground apparatus.
These pupils trust these teachers and friends!
Our Young Worship Leaders have been busy leading our Ash Wednesday and Easter services
Here are some video clips from the Easter Service that was led by our Young Worship Leaders and members of the choir.
Our Young Worship Leaders have been busy filming for our end of year Nativity Service. We are producing a news report about the First Christmas. What was Mary's reaction to the Angel Gabriel? What did the angel say? How did Joseph feel? Why were the Shepherds so afraid? How did the wise men know where to go? How did the donkey help?
Choir sing at the Christmas Tree Festival at St John's Church
On Friday 8 December 2017 our school choir joined with Drapers School Choir to sing at St John's Church at the Christmas Tree Festival. We loved hearing our choir sing "Saviour's Day" and "Walking in the Air" as well as joining in with traditional carols too. Don't they look angelic with their halos on?
We have been finding out about Remembrance Day. In worship on Wednesday 8 November our choir sang this beautiful song.
Year 6 made our wonderful Poppy display too.
On Friday 8 of our Young Worship Leaders went with Ms Gale, Mr Palmer and Mrs Harding to deliver the huge amount of harvest produce to CLIFTONVILLE COMMUNITY CENTRE. Thank you so much to all the families in our school who were so generous in their contributions to our local centre we had to several trips too and from the mini bus to load and then unload all the food, toiletries and clothes!
Some of the staff from the centre were there to meet us and to let us know about how they help families from the local community and about all the facilities they have there. We did not know that they have a nursery there.
Here are photos of the produce that we collected and photos of us with the some of the centre staff who were there on Friday.
Today (18 October 2017) we celebrated our Harvest Festival during our Collective worship time. Our Young Worship Leaders were leading the whole service and pupils from Years 3 and 4 read prayers and poems.
This year our theme was: "God made a world of difference"
We celebrated the fact that we are all different shapes, sizes and colours. We have different faiths and traditions for remembering Harvest time.
We found out about Harvest around the world.
Thank you to all our children and parents for all of the wonderful packets, tins and boxes of food, as well as the clothes and toiletries donated to CLIFTONVILLE COMMUNITY CENTRE, as part of our Harvest worship session.
Our Young Worship Leaders will be delivering these to the community centre and to see what great work the centre does in supporting so many of our local community.
In our Worship sessions we have been focusing on Our School Values and in Term 1 it is TRUST.
Here are some of our displays about TRUST.
