w/c 5th July 2021
This week we started with celebrating the birthday of the NHS and the awarding of the George Cross by The Queen. The children were invited to say any family members who work in the NHS – Mums, Dads, Aunties and more. To all of them, we offer our thanks and appreciation for all they have done to keep us safe and look after the country.
We then talked about medals and linked that in to the Olympic Games – the creed starts; ‘The most important thing in the Olympic games is not to win but to take part just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle’. This linked back to our own sports day and some of the classes have made our own school ‘Rings’

In assemblies this week we have been continuing the theme of ‘power’, including Pentecost. We have explored the work of St Peter and his role in starting the first church. He is often pictured holding keys – the keys to the church. We have talked about keys locking away precious things and in turn, unlocking things within us, such as our potential!
As we all start to prepare to move on, up or move to secondary school, we are thinking about our own potential and what we want to be known for. We all have the power to change and as the Holy Spirit is known as the Helper, we can ask for courage and support.
All the children have been really creative in finding different ways to make their stars for the assembly theme.
