This half term the Christian value that we will be thinking about is thankfulness.
Our Worship this Term.
For the first half of the autumn term our Christian value is thankfulness which links beautifully with our Harvest celebrations. In the weeks approaching Christmas and during Advent, our Christian value is trust. We will be looking at examples of trust in the Christmas story.
Apart from Harvest and Christmas, we will mark Remembrance Day and St Andrew's Day (the patron saint of Scotland).
The school will also look forward to the Year 6 and Year 5 Parents' Worship. They will tell us more about what they have been learning in class and parents and friends will be invited along to join in the worship. Afterwards, children, teachers and visitors will enjoy refreshments together.

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.
