Christian Distinctiveness

1 Thessalonians 5:11 ‘Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.’ 

In Chestnut Class, we are learning what happened in the Holy Week. Last week, we made our own palm leaves and shouted “Hosanna!” to celebrate Palm Sunday. This week, we recreated the events of Maundy Thursday. Jesus held a last supper with His disciples. He washed Peter’s feet, shared a plate of food with Judas and shared wine and bread with His disciples.

What an amazing retelling of the story of Joseph from home following this week’s Collective Worship!

What a wonderful creative gift from one of our governors. This has been made by cutting paper. Can you make something creative for our value COURAGE?

Christmas is a very important time in school. Together we remember and celebrate the birth of Jesus. We spend time together as a school family, visit church and celebrate with food and festivities. Jesus came to restore the relationship with God and man and therefore cultivating positive relationships within our community is an important way to show the love of Christ at Christmas.

In our 2019 pupil survey the pupils asked for a ‘prayer room’ we have gone one step further and we are currently developing a ‘calm space’. This is a space where pupils can reflect, take time out, read or pray in quiet. Everyone needs space in their lives away from the noise. We are grateful for the PTA for funding to buy soft furnishings for the room. We would also like to say thank you to ADT carpets in Ellesmere for our lovely soft flooring. It’s takes a community to move a school forward.

Rev Maureen visited today, she rewarded the pupils who spoke with confidence about our Christian Values and RE teaching to the Christian Distinctiveness Advisor. Rev Maureen also brought a thank you card to present to Oak class in recognition of their work with Historic England in getting the war memorial listed. It is wonderful to see how our children can actively impact our community for the future.

Our pupils enjoy a chat with our Christian Distinctiveness Advisor

What kind of world did Jesus want?

Ash class have been exploring the question -'What kind of world did Jesus want?'. Rev Maureen kindly came into class to help us reflect on the role of the church and community when considering the question. 
This young lady received one of our special values badges today due to her wonderful attitude to peers and staff.  She conducts herself so well around school and embodies the values we follow.  Such a brilliant example to all of our children and community - well done!

Christmas long ago - a wonderful evening celebrating the true meaning of Christmas
