On a journey with Jesus;

growing, learning and loving God together


On a journey with Jesus - growing, learning and loving God together.


Our Christian value for the first half of the autumn term is courage. Many people have shown great courage over recent months and we will spend some time reflecting on that. Some children are showing courage as they come back to school after being away for such a long time. We will think about that too. There are many examples of people in the Bible and in history who have shown great courage in the face of terrible situations. Many of them found their courage in God and His strength. We will also think about that and how we can find courage in the same way.

The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

Our Worship this Term

During this term, worship will be very different. It is not possible for us to meet together as we normally do but our daily worship will continue to take place in our classrooms. We will still focus on our Christian values and Mrs Sherry and Karen will be a familiar part of each week. There will still be Harvest, Remembrance and Christmas worship but it will have to change format. Apart or together, our worship will be an important feature of our life in school and will be one of the things that binds us together until we can meet as a school family once more.



We light our candle in the name of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father in Heaven,

hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come,

your will be done,

on Earth as in Heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our sins

as we forgive those who sin against us.

Lead us not into temptation

but deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power,

and the glory are yours

now and for ever.


The Lord's Prayer in sign language.

Our School Prayer

Christ Jesus

Unite us in our school

Encourage us to

Really do our best

Dare us to be different in

Every way

Never leave our side.


Christ Jesus

Help us to learn and

Understand about you

Rejoicing we say

Come and be with us in our

Hearts today.

Our Prayer Walk

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?
