Experience Church

The children from Year Two to Year Six have spent time at St Mary’s Church, to participate in the ‘Experience Church’ event. This gave them the opportunity to reflect, discuss and learn about the importance of the different parts of the Church and the role that they play in the life of the Church. The stations included: the entrance, Lectern, Font, Altar, Votive Stand, Kneelers and the stories in the windows. The children really enjoyed creating their own stained glass windows, to create candle holders to reflect that ‘Jesus is the Light of the World.’ They also created origami birds, in which they folded their worries, and flew them away. Lots of deeper discussions were held about Christians being disciples of God and about the importance of prayer. The children learnt about the Christian values and the value of what we can bring to the Church and take away into the wider world.

 

Year 2 Class Assembly

A huge well done to all of the pupils in Year 2 for their hard work and ideas to lead worship this morning.
They thought about all the people and key workers that help us in our daily lives. They also thought about how we can help and support each other.

Year 2 are also raising money this morning for Macmillan  Nurses. They are offereing juice and a biscuit to each pupil in school to take part in The World’s Largest Coffee Morning to support the work of this very worthwhile charity.
Well done Year 2 we are very proud of you!

Ash Wednesday Service

The children took part in a thought-provoking Ash Wednesday Service. This was led by Reverend Katy Cunliffe, who was accompanied by Reverend Dorothy and Mr Sanderson to mark the beginning of Lent.
