FESTIVAL OF TREES AND LIGHTS - January 2020
St Mary's Church in Capel St Mary held their Bi-annual Festival of Trees and Lights over the weekend. Our very own Mr Cornish, opened the festival by turning all of the lights on! Did you attend and participate in the quiz to work out what the clues on each tree were for? Children from our school carefully drew and coloured in their clues for our tree. If you didn't get a chance to pop along, have a look at the photos below and see if you can work out our clues.
Members of our local Christian community organised an 'Experience Christmas' event for our Year 5 and 6 children. It is a fun, interactive way for children to explore the Christmas Story. The children visit 6 different 'stations' to engage with the events leading up to Christmas:
1. The Preparation - Thinking about preparing our hearts as well as homes during Advent.
2. The Announcement - The angel visits Mary.
3. The Promises - The birth of Jesus is foretold.
4. The Journey - Mary and Joseph make their way to Bethlehem.
5. The Message - The angels appear to the shepherds.
6. The Gift - God's gift of Jesus is given to the world.
The photos in the slideshow below show the Experience Christmas event which took place on Tuesday 10th December 2019.
From January 2020 the school will be working on our ethos, answering the question what is it that makes our school a distinctively Christian school?
