On a journey with Jesus - growing, learning and loving God together.
This half term we are focussing on the Christian value of courage.
Courage is all about making good choices when we feel afraid. Courage doesn't mean fearlessness. It means we do not let fear hold us back from exploring new opportunities, developing our skills, and doing what is right. As Christians, courage can mean standing up for someone who needs our support or not fighting back or loving even when it is difficult. Often it is easy to be afraid and take the easy way out. But we know that with God all things are possible and he will give us the courage we need in every situation if we just ask him.
The Lord be with you.
And also with you.
Our Worship this Half Term
Mrs Sherry will help us to understand more about courage every Monday. On Tuesdays, we will continue to think about British values and how they are connected to our school Christian values. We will be seeing Matt this half term as he will lead our Thursday worship.
There are two saints' days to remember this half term - St George and St Mark. One of them is the patron saints of a country in the U.K. Do you know which one?
We will be talking about Ascension Day towards the end of the half term.
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 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?
