OUR CHRISTIAN VALUES THIS YEAR
AUTUMN 1 FRIENDSHIP

Our new Ethos team this year have had a meeting with David Taverner from the Southport and Area Schools Worker Trust to plan our year ahead.
He has offered to help us plan some WOW worships and run an after school club called The Awesome Club.
The Ethos Team have been elected from the juniors and carry a big responsibility;
Y3 Porsha Jones & Dylan Leadbetter
Y4 Cooper Bailey & Angel McCluskey
Y5 Harvey Moss and Lena K
Y6 Curtis Evans & Lucas Anderson
The children enjoy preparing their own Collective Worship which takes place either in Church, the school hall or in their classroom.
Parents and families are very welcome to come along and take part in our times of worship, each class will invite you at different times across the year.
Our thanks go to Tabz, who came to join us for worship recently, to help us reflect on our Christian Value of Forgiveness. He spoke about the importance of having second chances in life, just like Jesus' disciple, Peter. Despite denying him three times Jesus still forgave him.
Using an example of a SAT NAV on his phone, Tabz demonstrated the way we often do not listen to instructions, sometimes this can get us lost! But there is always a new beginning, a way to wipe the slate clean.
Forgiveness is about forgiving others as well as asking others to forgive you.
END OF TERM SERVICE
We were treated to a wonderful end of term service in December, thanks to Reverend David and the children from Year 5.
We enjoyed singing Christmas carols, hearing the Word of God, listening to a Russian fable and learning about the importance of gifts.
Year 5 acted out an old Russian folk tale, called Papa Panov, an old shoemaker, who was eagerly waiting for the visit of Jesus on Christmas Day. He was visited by several local people who were in need but was annoyed when Jesus hadn't turned up. Later he discovered in a dream that Jesus had indeed been to visit him through the poor that he had so generously served.
Y6 COLLECTIVE WORSHIP
On Thursday, some of our year 6 parents were invited into the classroom to watch their children perform their collective worship. The group worked extremely hard on their presentation and all who took part learnt a valuable lesson about friendship. It was lovely to have some quiet time to reflect on what friendship means. We appreciate those families and friends who were able to attend.
We were thrilled to receive our new Prayer Table this recently. It was made by Pete Hesketh, and his wife, at Ribble Valley Woodcraft and they produced exactly what we wanted. Our hall now has a special area for our worship which emphasises our motto, 'Following Jesus, together we succeed.' Thank you for producing a beautiful work of art.
