This half term the Christian value that we will be thinking about is service.
Our Worship this Term.
For the first half of the summer term our Christian value is service. In the weeks following Ascension Day and Pentecost, our Christian value is truthfulness.
Apart from Ascension Day and Pentecost, we will remember St George’s Day (the patron saint of England).
During this term, Year R, Year 4 and Year 1 will each present their special class worship. 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.
At the end of this term, Year 6 will present their Leavers’ Service – a chance to say goodbye to the children before they move to secondary school and a chance for us to send them off with our prayers and God’s blessing.
Our School Prayer

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.
