During this half term leading up to Easter, our Christian value will be forgiveness.
Our Worship this Term
For the first half of the spring term our Christian value is courage. In the weeks leading up to Easter, our Christian value is forgiveness. We remember how Jesus died so that we could be forgiven and become friends of God.
We will be thinking about St David and St Patrick during this term on April 1st and 17th respectively.
We will talk about Ash Wednesday and Lent. Then, at the end of term, we will mark Easter with a special service at St Saviours Church. Family and friends of Cuerden Church School will again be invited to join us.
During this term, Year 2 and Year 3 will present their special class worships. They will tell us more about what they have been learning, and parents and friends will be invited along to join in the worship. Afterwards, children, teachers and visitors will enjoy refreshments together.
Leading Lights will take a whole school worship to think about courage in February.
Our School Prayer

Rejoicing we say
Come and be with us in our
In the Summer of 2013, we built a Prayer Walk for our field pathway that helps us to remember why and how we should pray.
Every child made sketches of their ideas then Jeff from Eco-arts used them to design and construct the wooden sculptures. We can see some of our ideas in the sculptures.
Each sculpture has a different theme - praise and saying sorry, please and thank you to God. To celebrate its installation, the whole school walked round the Prayer Walk together. The older children helped the little ones to look and pray.
We use the Prayer Walk in whole school and class worship and in R.E. lessons.
Do you have any ideas how we could use our Prayer Walk in the future?
One idea that has come up already is to leave poppies there on Remembrance Day next year.
