Self-sacrifice is our Christian Value this Spring. Children are exploring stories from the Bible linked to the value and considering what self-sacrifice means in the world today.
Later this term, we will be building on the value of Creation by planting seeds and plants provided by a generous donation to the school. The donated tyres at both sites will be used as raised planters.
Our focus Christian Value during the Summer term of 2016/17 was Creation. Children and staff considered creation within the world and linked the value with our theme for the term 'Let's Go Green.' They also explored Biblical stories linked to the value.
We asked parents to contribute tyres which we have recycled to create raised beds to grow flowers, herbs and plants. We were inundated with them and spent time with families painting the tyres beautiful colours (July) ready to be used Spring term 2018. A kind donation will be used to buy the plants and flowers. Mr Woodcock also put his woodwork skills to super use and created raised beds for the gardening club to plant vegatables. By the Autumn term, and ready for the Blyton Horticultural Society Show, we had an abundance of marrows and pumpkins growing over the playground!
