 Spring 1  Value- Friendship 

 

John 15:12-15 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.

Isaiah 45:18 For this is what the LORD says - he who created the heavens, he is God; he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it; he did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be

inhabited.

Church School Partnership 2 Award

We were delighted to welcome the Bishop into school to present us with our Church School Partnership 2 Award. Photos are on the Twitter account of the Bishop in our assembly.

First he visited the church Luncheon club where our Year 6 Lunch Bunch group were serving. After this the new Year 6 leaders gave him a tour of the school, the Bishop loved meeting the children and getting a glimpse of our school in action. 

His visit ended with a whole school assembly- he presented us with a lovely wooden cross and candle which will be lit at the start of every assembly.  To give him a real feel for the school we also showed him the 'Happy' video which he thoroughly enjoyed!

This award is a reflection of the relationship between church and school and we will continue to look for more ways to further develop this over the next year. 

Thank you to our dancing Vicar, Nick Wells (see the end of the 'Happy' video! ) for all his support in school. 

 

SEPTEMBER 2014- Our new school value

Please remember to let us know if your child has shown any of our Christian values at home. Complete the slip on this web page and send it into school.  

 

 

What does the Bible say about Trust/Truthfulness?

 

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."  John 14 verse 6

 

Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another.  Ephesians 4 verse 25

 

 

  • Joshua 1:9

    Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."

     

  • 2 Samuel 7:28

    O Sovereign LORD, you are God! Your words are trustworthy, and you have promised these good things to your servant.

     

  • Psalm 9:10

    Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.

     

  • Psalm 13:5

    But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation

  • Psalm 20:7

    Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.

  • Psalm 31:14

    But I trust in you, O LORD; I say, "You are my God."

 

 Church and school partnership -sharing worship time

 

During the summer term we welcomed members of St. Andrews church into school to hold their Wednesday morning Holy Communion service in the Junior hall. It was a very special time, Year 5 and 6 behaved excellently and really enjoyed sharing worship with the church.  The choir, led brilliantly by Mrs Wheelan, sang beautifully and it was lovely for the children to experience communion and be blessed by Rev. Nick Wells.

We are planning to hold another joint service in school in October and visit church in the Spring term. 

Thank you to the members of St. Andrews church for coming to visit us.

Pop up prayer week 2! 

 

Our second 'Pop up prayer' week  proved very popular again! Each year group had the opportunity to come and pray from 12.45- 1.15 pm each day.

 

The focus of the prayers was for the world, including issues in the news, thinking about countries who are currently suffering because of conflict and praying for links that St. Andrews church has around the world. 

 

The prayers are on display in the Infant hall around the world map. 

 

Thank you to members of St. Andrews church for coming in to support us.

Bible Alive!

 

This year the Diocesan are encouraging all Church schools to take part in the Bible Alive celebrations. The aim of this is to give the children time to look at the Bible and engage with its stories.

 

Our Bible alive week was great fun!  Each class took part in special creative work based on a Bible story. Ranging from Art, DT, drama, creative writing, lego model making etc..!  

 

It was a lovely week, and so nice to see the children engaging with the Bible in a special way.
