Our Headteacher recorded children singing during Collective Worship. They sounded so amazing that we wanted to share it with you all.

Our week began with a visit from John Hardwick from Barnabus in Schools. He led an amazing collective worship to introduce our theme of “Who comes first?” He talked about how the Olympic and ParaOlympic values can inspire us all to be champions.
He also led workshops for each class to further develop these ideas. Throughout the week, children have learned about the lives of inspirational athletes and made links with stories in the bible. Look out for the RE week exhibition in the hall which will be on display at our parents’ evenings after half term.
Orange Class offered a marvellous collective worship today as they discussed the word “Friends” and “Friendship”. They discussed how important being friendly to others and showing respect in friendship is. They also showed us how good their Spanish is as they translated the word “Friend” into Spanish, which is “Amigo”!
We took some pictures of the collective worship, which can be view via the gallery below. Please click on the thumbnails for a larger view.
With the festive season upon us, it is important to understand the true Christian meaning of this time of year. In order to do this, Year 1 class paid a visit to All Saints Church in Peckham so that they could hear all about the Christian message and the story of Christ.
They learned about the features of the church and acted out the Nativity. We took some pictures of the visit, which can be seen in the gallery below.
Reception and Key Stage 1 children performed their version of the Nativity called ‘It’s a Party,’ this week. The children sang brilliantly and enjoyed themselves. Thank you to all the staff who worked so hard to put together the performance.
Also, thank you to parents and carers who supported the performance and gave generously to our Uganda link school. We raised £30.

We enjoyed a lovely Eucharist Service with Bishop Karowei and Reverend Adams this week. Faith Group lead the service and Year 6 received the bread and ‘wine’ or a blessing. Bishop Karowei spoke about the importance of Compassion through the parable of the Good Samaritan. He encouraged us to show kind actions to others when they are in need and to avoid laughing at them even though we may feel like it.
Bishop Karowei also blessed and opened our new prayer space in the playground. This will be a special place for children and adults to use for reflection and personal prayer.
Faith Group enjoyed a breakfast meeting with Bishop Karowei. They found out more about him and his role by asking questions such as, “When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?” We learnt he used to be a doctor before he was selected to be the Bishop of Woolwich. What a great day!
Year 6 children presented their letters to Harriet Harman MP that they had written linked to God’s Global Goal: 13 – Climate Action. They talked about how they want to be ‘agents of change’ and would like to see Rye Lane improved with less litter.
Ms Harman promised to write back. Here is a picture of our pupils with Harriet Harman MP.
Year 3 led a great Collective Worship session this week on God’s Global Goal 15: Life on Land. They told us about what they had learned about deforestation and encouraged us to show more compassion for our world by using less plastics.
