Ice balloons

Mrs Brewin's class in KS1  had great fun last week investigating the effect of salt on ice balloons as part of their topic on the Antarctic. Lots of excited chatter, cold hands and awe and wonder all round!

KS2 hall display

The art work in the KS2 hall continues to develop and to provide the focus for much discussion.

Our Journey through Lent

Another creative and visual display in our main corridor focuses our mind on the journey that God calls us to undertake, not just at Lent but everyday.

One of our favourite verses reminds us of the fact that God is with us every step of the way.

 Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

So who is the greatest?

It's a question that at times we have all probably wanted to ask or at least wanted to be the answer to. Status, prominence and recognition are such strong driving forces and are key aspects of the material world in which we live.

So it was quite natural for the disciples to ask the question or at least to debate the point. Not quite such a material world then, but status, prominence and recognition were still important - observing the Pharisees provided enough evidence of that it would seem.

So they had an argument and Jesus responds.

 And He said to them, “Whoever welcomes this little child in My name welcomes Me, and whoever welcomes Me welcomes the One who sent Me. For whoever is the least among all of you, he is the greatest.”

Who ever is the least among you .......

A modern world turned upside down on its head and a response that takes some thinking about.

I have displayed some of Mother Teresa's quotes around school this week to help us unpick the challenge that Jesus gave.

I always find her inspiring and challenging at the same time.

KS1 fun in the playground

I was reminded yesterday about how much fun it is to be able to play outside! Just observing the children engaging, debating, sharing and having a great time together is always something that brings a smile to the face, even when the sun isn't shinning!

One of the displays in KS1 captures this brilliantly, with lots of great language and portraits.
