Father Paul led our worship and told the story of the Ten Lepers. Explaining that although all ten lepers were healed by Jesus, which was an amazing miracle only one of them came back to say thank you. He started a poem with us that we have been asked to finish...
Cats and Whales and Puppy Dog's tails
Thank you God for Everything
Church and School and Swimming Pool
Thank you God for Everything
It's now our job to finish the poem... I wonder what we will come up with?
We held a Harvest Workshop in Church after school on the 8th October. Meena and a team of volunteers: Ann, Carol W, Joan, Ethel, Freda and Jason had some fantastic arts and craft activities for the children to participate in. It was a wonderful celebration of all that we have learnt this term. A lot of hard work was put into the event both on the day and in preparation which was very much appreciated. We are extremely lucky to have such strong links with St Peter’s Church. The children got to make leaf wreath's, grass heads, decorate biscuits, harvest corn and contribute towards a large cross which is displayed in church. To end the workshop Meena led us in a short act of worship. Everyone very much enjoyed the event!
We celebrated World Porridge Day to raise money for Mary's Meals, a charity which feeds more than two million children in 19 countries around the world every school day. In Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe, the children are normally served steaming mugs of porridge enriched with vitamins to help them learn and grow. That’s why we celebrated World Porridge Day – we know porridge has the power to change lives! We all enjoyed our porridge and our visit from Fran, who works for Mary's Meals. We raised £107.90 for the charity! Well done everyone!
On the 29th September we went into church to celebrate Harvest Festival with the parishioners. We had a wonderful time, sharing such an excellent variety of songs , readings, and teaching everyone about harvest around the world, the farm to fork journey and about Fairtrade. All the children were engaged , involved and so well behaved. We had a large and supportive group of parents/ carers who came to support the children.
On the 15th September, Father Paul came to lead our first Worship. He told the story of the Generous Widow and how we should give sacrificially. The children loved welcoming Father Paul into our school.

You first, me last.
Have you ever been generous without telling anyone?
Remember one small way you have shown generosity to one person. You don't always have to do big things for lots of people.
Have you ever been putt off doing what you are able to do because someone might do it better?
When has your generosity served to help future generations?
Education Sunday 12th September
Children and staff worked hard to plan and deliver a special service for the congregation at St Peter's Church. The children thought about our mission statement, ‘Every Child of God Matters’ and how this makes our school distinctive and special.

Gold Class and St Paul's Cathedral
Over the last four weeks, Gold Class have been working in partnership with Tom Daggett from St Paul's Cathedral on an outreach project which involved learning some new songs and lots of physical activity.
As you can hear from the video below, the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves, as did the staff.
Thank you Tom for a super project.
