Learning Together

Faith Group

Faith Group meet each Thursday lunch time with Mrs Marshall. Their purpose is to help develop the ethos of our school from a child’s perspective, to have fun and to help everyone think about what having a faith really means in school. 

Thank you to Saffiya, Raheem and Tyrah for their Eid Celebration Display

At the end of June 2019, on a glorious day, we had a very enjoyable Faith Group Party!  We wrote invitations to all the schools in our cluster, and were very pleased to welcome children from St. Leonards Balderstone, St. Mary's Osbaldeston, St. Leonards's Langho and children from Barrow Church of England Primary School who all came to our party.

First of all, we got into teams and went on a scavenger hunt around our beautiful school grounds.  We thought about the gifts God has given us, from the scented flowers we could smell in the bushes, to the fluffy wool we found in the fence around our field, and even the little fir cones that were falling off  the trees.

Next, we drew chalk pictures on the playground of the objects we had collected on our scavenger hunt.  Next to each picture, we wrote a thank you note to God for his wonderful creation and the gifts he has given us.

 

We are so lucky to have our Outdoor Classroom, and we went into the shade of the classroom to sing worship songs.

 

Following our singing, we went into our school hall to decorate buns!  All the members of our school's Faith Group had made buns in the morning, and everyone from all the schools enjoyed decorating them with Christian symbols, such as fish, the sign of the cross and images of love.  We all got to eat our buns, and enjoyed a refreshing drink!

 

Finally, we sang along to our favourite worship song, "Every Step."  This song reminds us that God's love is always with us - every day, every step we take through our life.

Look at our pictures from the Faith Group Party!
