Saltmine Theatre - The Rhyming Bible


Wow, what a fabulous end to a Friday afternoon. Last week the children the children were entertained by the fabulous actors and actresses of Saltmine Theatre, to learn THE STORY. The children got involved in raps, chants and dancing throughout in what was a jam-packed show. The pupils left with big grins on their faces and wanting to share their favourite parts, stories and moments with the class. What a brilliant way to end our first half term back at school.

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 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?

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.
