Groundbreakers Weekly Worship Video

This weeks assembly is called WWJD? and is all about the value of service. It looks at a question that Jesus’ disciples asked him about who was the greatest. There are several places to stop and think about who the children think is the greatest and why, what criteria we use to decide who is the greatest and whether we can actually decide at all and a further place at the end of the video to think about how we can serve others.

We hope you enjoy and that it provokes some interesting discussions.

Here is the final Topsy Turvy video of this half term called Bee Loving! With Valentine’s Day at the end of the week, we are thinking about love and how we show love to others.

I discovered that St Valentine is the patron saint of lovers and also bee keepers and so we look at how bees can teach us a thing or two about how to love.

There is a game which involves making as many words as you can from the word Valentine, fun facts about St. Valentine and the story of The Good Samaritan with places to pause and think as usual.

Bee Loving!

Here is this weeks video entitled The True You, which is all about our gifts and talents and how we use them.

There is a memory game at the beginning, opportunities to think and reflect and a story called The Parable of the Talents.

I hope you and your children enjoy it.

There is a game of charades to play, places to pause and reflect and a story Jesus told about how our actions must match up to what we are saying.

Hope you enjoy…

Emotional health and mental well-being…

Hello everyone.

I just want to point you in the direction of a new set of resources on our ‘Learning’ tab dropdown on the website.

If you click on it, you will find a range of resources and documents that contain some useful advice: especially if your children are struggling somewhat during the lockdown.

Please take a moment to have a look at the resources – particularly the information on World Mental Health Awareness Day.

Don’t forget, if we can help – we will do our best. There is usually someone here at school you can talk to.

Best wishes to you all on behalf of all the staff here at St Mary’s.

Mr Day
