Here are some lovely ideas to think about during Holy Week and coming up to Easter. They were written by a lady called Shahne Vickery and they include some fabulous pictures of the events of Holy Week by an Ethiopian artist called Nebiyu Assefa.
Take a look!
On a journey with Jesus - growing, learning and loving God together.
During the second half of the spring term, our Christian value will be forgiveness.
Easter is the time of year when we especially think about forgiveness. When Jesus died on the cross, he did it because he knew it had to be done so we could be forgiven. He suffered for us because it was the only way to bring us back to God. His unfailing love would not leave us without a way back to God's forgiveness.
The Lord be with you.
And also with you.
Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
Our Worship this Term
For the first half of the spring term our Christian value is love. This is a very important Christian value because it is the beginning of all the other values. We will think about the amazing love of God and how we can show love to others.
In the weeks leading up to Easter, our Christian value is forgiveness. At this time of year, we remember that Jesus died at Calvary so we can be forgiven. We will think about this more deeply in our Easter Service where it would be great to see family and friends.
During this term, Year 2 and Year R will present their Family Worship. They will tell us more about what they have been learning, and parents and friends will be invited along to join in. Afterwards, children, teachers and visitors will enjoy refreshments together.
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.
Our School Prayer
Unite us in our school
Encourage us to
Really do our best
Dare us to be different in
Never leave our side.
Help us to learn and
Understand about you
Rejoicing we say
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?
