Reverend Andrew visited to lead a collective worship. He told us about the story of Saint Telemachus and we thought about how it is sometimes difficult but always right to stand up for what we believe in.
We all chose a place in school that we wanted our crosses to hang. We think they look beautiful and they remind us to think of God whenever we are in school and whatever we are doing.
This term we learned about the French tradition of ‘la galette des rois’ (the King’s cake) on 6th January. We also made ‘fortune tellers’ and practised ‘Quelle couleur?’ and ‘quel numero?’ to try them out on each other. We then started practising for our celebration assembly, to show the work we had done on colours, numbers and parts of the body to describe our monsters we had drawn. In the assembly we also sang a song called ‘Bonjour, c’est moi’ with the body parts in and a beautiful song called ‘Enfant de Paix’ (Child of Peace).
Reverend Linda visited us to lead a collective worship about Candlemas. We learned about how Jesus was presented at the temple 40 days after his birth. We look forward to welcoming Reverend Linda back late in the term for more collective worship.
House Captains from all three schools came together with governors to have their first pupil/governor meeting.
Monday 17th January saw the celebration of Plough Monday take place in the afternoon collective worship. Mr Tibbenham and Judy Pritchard attended from the Poor Trustees and church, and presented every child with a loaf of bread. The pupils led prayers and explained the unique tradition. We wish to thank them for our bread!
