On Monday every child in school received a loaf of bread for Plough Monday. Diamond Class led the collective worship explaining the tradition of why we are given the loaves. We all learned how people in our community showed compassion and kindness in the past by thinking of, and providing food for those that did not have enough. We all thanked the poor trustees for continuing the tradition. Diamond Class finished the worship with prayers they had written.
