This year, each class took part in a Remembrance service in their own classrooms. The children and staff read from scripture, and led their classes in prayer, and reflection. As we can’t spread sign of peace with one another, at the moment, the children and staff also shared hearts of love with each other. Lest we forget.
Year 1/2J helped us celebrate St David’s Day in style. They led us in a beautiful assembly for the whole school and families. They taught us all about who St David was, and how he is important to us in Britain, as the Patron Saint of Wales. The children danced a traditional Welsh folk dance and even spoke Welsh by reciting a rhyme called Jac y do. It was a lot of fun!
Mrs Davey and children across Key Stage Two led us in a beautiful Ash Wednesday Service, which marks the beginning of Lent. We sang hymns, listened to Scripture from Matthew’s Gospel, and prayed. some children led us in actions to one of our hymns too. Furthermore, Our communal prayers included one that was beautifully written by Sian from Year 4. We reflected as a school community on our journey ahead, thinking about all the different ways we could pray, fast and give during Lent.
Our brand new Scripture club have worked very hard this year to give our school a focus during Advent. Together, they used the hut on the KS2 playground to create a beautiful stable; the birth place of our Lord Jesus. Well done children, you have certainly given beautiful place for us to reflect and pray.
