Church School News

Summer 2019 Update

At the end of last term we had an Easter Trail out on the school field at each site, with activities for all the children related to the sequence of the Easter story.
Our Value for this half term is Freedom.
This is how we explain it to the children:
Freedom is choice.
Freedom is living with dignity.
Freedom is when rights are balanced with responsibilities.
The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free.
Luke Ch 4 V18
We have started with a few assemblies about how much freedom of choice we have and how to think about choices between right and wrong and who can help us along the way. We talked about The Pilgrim’s Progress and Christian having the freedom to make choices on his journey just as we have choices along our journey of life. We talked about John Bunyan and people who do not have the freedom to worship as they want.
Some assemblies have also linked in with the SEAL/PSHE themes of relationships, looking at families and friendships. We will have further assemblies about the friends of Jesus, the twelve disciples. We will finish the half term with an assembly about Ascension.
