RE/Worship

In Beech, Maple, Elder and Oak we thought about the big question of 'Do we take water for granted?'.  We spent time reflecting on the fact that 1 in 10 people around the world do not have access to clean, safe drinking water and that 1 in 3 people do not have access to a proper toilet.  These facts really astounded us, especially when we represented this visually with the bodies in our class.  We watched some video clips showing children our age walking miles every day to collect dirty water and then carrying the water back on their heads, which damages their necks and spines.  This led us to consider this quote from the Bible:

“Let us love, not in word or speech but in truth and action”

  1 John 3:18

We believe that access to safe clean water is a human right and so we discussed ways in which we could take action to support this right for everyone.  We learned about the actions that charities, such as Water Aid and Christian Aid have taken to support.  We also reflected on how taking these actions would link to our school Christian values of compassion, trust, peace, friendship, respect and love.

The Bible teaches us that it is better to give than to receive. We have taken part in the Rotary Club Christmas Shoebox appeal. We voted to fill a box with household goods. We brought items in from home to fill the box. We are demonstrating the Christian value of compassion.

We made promises to others, just like God made promises.

Beech class led a whole school worship on the theme of Trust, the Christian value we have been reflecting on this term.  We had the idea of trust in school, when Mr Holmes (a rather dapper dressed Aaron) had to trust some pupils as he left his super dojo tea party with loads of tempting cakes on display.  We also acted out some stories to show how important telling the truth is in ensuring people can trust you and how you can always place your trust in God.  

Since the start of term, we have been reviewing our Vision here at St Peter’s.  This is the root of all we do and what we truly believe drives every element of school life.

As a Church School, this needs to come from the Bible.  So, the question is: which do you think best fits our school?

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Philippians 4 : 13

We think this is a good quote to develop resilience and a determination to succeed.  It links well to the challenge element of the motto and overcoming difficulties or a challenge.

“Everything is possible with God” Matthew 19 : 26

We think this quote is very positive and links most with the inspire element of the motto.  It is also in line with our Growth Mindset work and can relate back to a some of our values.

“Let your light shine” Matthew 5 : 16

This short quote seems to sum up all we do and can relate back to each element of the motto and in how children present themselves as the best version of themselves, through our values.

 

Here we are voting for our Beech class favourite quote.  We can't wait to find out if our quote is the winning choice!

Mia received the most golden tickets in Beech class for showing Christian values towards others in school.  She won a Wonka chocolate bar for her kindness.  It even had a special golden ticket inside!

Bishop’s Harvest Appeal 2018. We decided to have a toy sale to raise money. We all brought in our old toys and sold them to the rest of the school. Our class raised just over £50.
