This half term the Christian value that we will be thinking about is perseverance.
Our Worship this Term.
For the first half of the spring term our Christian value is perseverance. In the weeks approaching Easter and during Lent, our Christian value is justice. At Easter we remember how Jesus died and paid the price so we could all be a friend of God.
Apart from Easter, we will mark Epiphany, St David's Day (the patron saint of Wales) and St Patrick's Day (the patron saint of Ireland). There are many important times in the days leading up to Easter including Lent and Palm Sunday.

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.
