KS2 assembly 11th September

We read the story of Fran the frog and Toby the Toad! Fran took pride in her restaurant and one night Toby arrived and complained ALL evening about the food in the restaurant. Fran became upset and hit Toby over the head with a frying pan! Toby was very angry and wanted revenge. We discussed the events that could happen if Toby decided to hit back and how we could change the future if we remembered to ‘Pass the Peace Please’ and not respond in an aggressive way.

Visit from Bishop Mark

Bishop Mark of Middelton paid us a special visit today.

He spoke to us about the vestments he wears and what each item represents.

Did you know the Bishop’s hat represents a flame? Symbolising when Jesus passed the Holy Spirit to his disciples in the form of a flame at the feast of Pentecost.

He also spent time in each class talking to the children. He was very impressed by their kindness, good manners and Christian Values. Well done children!

                      

KS1 Singing Assembly

In Key Stage One singing assembly we started the Year by learning a song called ‘Back in school again’ which talks about us looking forward to the term ahead and how each and everyone of us makes a difference. We also sang ‘Peace, Perfect Peace’ which the children sang beautifully.

Peace Babies!

We shared the brilliant story about how Jelly Babies were once named peace babies! Did you know these tasty sweets were invented to celebrate the end of WW1? The different colours represented the countries that had fought throughout WW1  and the sweets were all placed in one bag – showing that everyone can live alongside each other happily and be a part of the same world. Look out in school for our own version of Peace Babies coming soon!

Whole school assembly – 3.9.14

We began the week by introducing our theme for the term;

“Pass the Peace Please.”

The children were asked to think of other words to use as synonyms for peace. They suggested; love, Christian Values, hope, joy, calm.

We discussed how all those words can be used as synonyms for peace and over the course of the term we will be looking at how we can help to ensure we live in a peaceful place, be that the school, town, country, continent or world. Given that we are all earthlings ( this was debated) we must seek to recognise and understand our similarlites, whilst also recognising, tolerating and celebrating our differences.
