Holy Communion

Paul Brown lead collective Worship this week on the Wonder of Holy Communion.

“On the night when he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some bread and gave thanks to God for it. Then he broke it in pieces and said, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”  In the same way, he took the cup of wine after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant between God and his people—an agreement confirmed with my blood. Do this in remembrance of me as often as you drink it.”

(1 Cor. 11:23–25)

Christian Aid – Lent collective worship

Neil Roper from Christian Aid visited us this week and told us about people in the world who are affected by global warming. He reminded us how small changes we make can help the lives of others.

We would like to thank Neil for his visit and his insight into how we can all change to help heal our planet one day at a time to stamp out the risk of global warming.

RE Week Exhibition

Parents enjoyed visiting our recent RE Week exhibition on Christianity Around the World. All the children enjoyed an interactive and creative workshop with John Hardwick from Barnabus in School.

They:

  • explored in depth how the Christian faith is lived out in other countries;
  • understood that Christianity is a living world faith;
  • used interactive and reflective activities to find out how Christianity began and developed;
  • learnt about Christianity today in countries such as Ethiopia, Argentina, Spain and Russia;
  • compared differences and similarities in Christian faith and worship, as well as the key beliefs that are common across the world.

One parent commented, “The children’s work is really inspiring.  It shows what they are learning and in their home language too.  What a brilliant idea!  Well done to all the classes for the great work.  Keep it up.

God bless you all.

Year 4 visit Cadogan Hall

Year 4 went to Cadogan Hall in Slone Square to watch the Classical road show.  The Performance was: Dreamtime Tales describing Captain Cook’s discovery of the New World and Aboriginal folklore handed down orally through the years.

 The children and other schools in the audience enjoyed watching and listening to the orchestra, we were taught some unusual instruments and what they sounded like and got to participate in some of the singing throughout the tales which we had practiced before hand. We thoroughly enjoyed it!

Crystal Palace Trip – Reception

Orange Class had a fabulous time at Crystal Palace Park. We went on a dinosaur hunt with our challenge sheets, we found them all and had fun describing them. 

On the way to have our lunch we saw a statue of a gorilla, he looked very big and strong, we could feel it and had great fun having a photo next to it. 

We also saw lots of wildlife in the park, we saw some sheep, birds, dogs and lots of ducks and geese.  Everyone had fun and wanted to go back again.
