On a journey with Jesus - growing, learning and loving God together.
Our Christian value for the second half of the autumn term is love.
Love is one of our school's Christian values and it is the foundation of all the others. Without love we cannot show compassion, hope, trust, forgiveness, courage or respect.
As we come up to Christmas, it is a wonderful time to think about the love of God and how, in love, He gave us His Son to live as one of us. Jesus showed love to everyone He met and then died on the cross to show the greatest love of all.
The Lord be with you.
And also with you.
Our Worship this Term
There are two class worships this half term. Year 6 will be helping us to understand Remembrance Day on 11th November. Year 5 will be thinking about what Christmas really means on 1st December. We are very excited about a visit from Bishop Phillip nearer Christmas. The Nativity play and the Carol Service will both end this term and give us time to reflect on how 'Love came down at Christmas time.'
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,

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 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?
