The liturgy group led a liturgy to remind us how God’s world is a special treasure. They chose to gather outside, read the creation story and ask the children to draw a picture of their favourite treasure in the story. Our mission is to go out and remind people to enjoy the beauty that God created for us. Well done team!
All the children of the school partook in a day of spiritual contemplation led by our Liturgy team
Year 4, 5 and 6 children prayed in silence in the presence of the consecrated Eucharist. A very moving and inspirational moment of prayer for us all.
Lest We Forget
Thank you to our liturgy group who delivered a lovely liturgy to celebrate Mary. We talked about how she knew her son, Jesus, was special and thought about what our mums do so that we know we are special to them.
This morning, the children from Key Stage one and Foundation joined together with the rest of the country to observe a minute silence and remember the tragic events of Monday night in Manchester. We prayed to our Mother, Mary, and asked her to look after all of the people affected. Year One also wrote some prayers of their own and shared them with us.
‘Little pig, little pig let me in!’ The Year 1 children were very busy over the Easter holidays building houses for the Three Little Pigs! What fantastic creators we have in our classes – Super work!
In RE we have been focusing on Holidays and Holy days. The children have created some beautiful stained glass crosses for this topic. The children really worked hard on these pieces of Art and they are truly beautiful. Well done Year 1!
We have been some very busy bees in Year 1 this week, we have even planted some cress seeds as a Science experiment! The children used the materials independently to plant their own cress seeds. Now we wait to watch them grow!
As the sun was shining this week we decided it was time to go on a flower hunt! All of the Year 1 children made a visit to our allotment to see what flowers they could find. The children found lots of different flowers, including Daffodils, Lilies, cherry blossoms and tulips! We are now ready to create some beautiful flower artwork next week!
Our creative liturgy leaders lead our collective worship in the allotment. It was a beautiful day in the sun and we thoroughly enjoyed gathering together to reflect upon ‘New Life’. They led us in our Boot Camp exercises to jump in joy for the Lord’s love, press-ups (to lift the weight of sin from our shoulders) and burpees (to show the ups and downs we take along our spiritual roads). There was a smile on every face!
Remember – by changing our attitude, we can have a New Life without worries.
Year 4 have been using the green screen app to create short movies based on Acts 8: 26-30, 34 – 38.
Philip was a follower of Jesus. One day he went walking on the desert road from Jerusalem to Gaza. A chariot passed him. In it was an officer of the court of the Queen of Ethiopia. This man was reading one of the books of the Bible: the book of the prophet Isaiah. God’s spirit spoke to Philip, saying, “Go to meet that chariot.” When he reached the chariot, Philip heard the Ethiopian reading the words of Isaiah: “Do you understand what you are reading?” asked Philip. “How can I understand unless I have someone to help me?” he replied. He asked Philip to help him. “Come up here beside me,” he said. Philip did as he asked. The Ethiopian said, “Who is this prophet talking about here?” Philip explained that the passage was about Jesus and went on to tell him more of the Good News of Jesus. A little further on they saw some water and the Ethiopian asked, “Is there anything to stop me being baptised?” He stopped the chariot. Philip went down with him into the water and baptised him, there and then. The Ethiopian continued his journey rejoicing. Philip went on telling the Good News everywhere he went.
Great directing, acting and editing by our pupils. Next stop Hollywood!
