We have very close links with our local church. Children visit the church regularly for special services and as part of their on-going learning in Religious Education. Rob Paterson visits school frequently to lead collective worship.
In Advent, stations were created for 'Experience Christmas' and all the children visited the church to take part and reflect on Advent and the Christmas story. This was followed by our Carol Service the following week.
All classes went to St. Mark church for experience Pentecost. The Ethos Committee in each class led the 'Doing' station, where they retold the Bible story of when the disciples has faith and with the power of the Holy Spirit, healed the sick beggar outside the temple. The pupils thought about how they could put their hopes into action and make a difference in the world.
At the 'Receiving' station, children wrote prayers about something they would like to see happen in their lives or in the world. Many of the children prayed that they would like to see an end to global warming.
