Journey Days

Every term we plan a Journey Day for all our pupils.  In life being able to think and reflect is really important for our mental well-being.  Journey Day is where our children go off the traditional time table, gather into house and family groups and focus on one area of personal/spiritual development.  As we are a Church School we choose significant days on the Christian calendar to delve deeper into the meaning.


We hope that through the experience pupils learn to live lives that make a difference in society.  The days are underpinned by our Christian: respect, forgiveness, compassion, courage, perseverance and friendship.  


We add to the gallery of photos each time we have a Journey Day so please have a look at all the photos below which capture the days enjoyed together. 

Good to be ME!

Christmas Journey Day

Today we have been exploring the true meaning of Christmas.   Jesus was a gift to the world and he wants each and everyone of us to bring light to the world. We have explored the Christmas story and some of the characters even came to join us for the day. We have thought about all our special gifts and talents and how we can go and make a difference in the world. We had a visit from Father Christmas and spend some time in personal reflection.   Journey Day is always a special school family day.

Epiphany was the focus of our journey day for January. What a wonderful time learning about the festival and looking at traditions and festivals around the world. We spent time reflecting, celebrating, learning and expressing ourselves. What a great start to 2023.

We were delighted to dig into the real meaning of Christmas with Rev Maureen, Rev Diana and the volunteers at St Rafael and St Isidore (Petton Church). We are so blessed to be surrounded by Church buildings which demonstrate the faith through generations in our area. We are grateful to Rev Diana for all her support this term in bringing the festivals and school values to life. We took a journey through the Christmas story, reflecting on the brave characters who stepped out in faith and of course - Jesus - the reason for the season, the gift to our world.
