Yesterday the children all signed each others shirts and got their new Leaver’s Hoodies. A little bit too warm to enjoy them fully, but I’m sure they will get worn through the holiday and be kept and enjoyed.
The School provided us with a beautiful buffet sorted out by Rachel (our cook) and Larna’s mum. And Ethan’s mum kindly gave us all a very welcomed slushy! Thank you
Today – we had the best day ever. It was so lovely to see the children have fun in the water, whilst learning some great skills and getting very wet indeed.
There are also a few videos on top of the post from our day, where a lot of teacher’s were getting very wet and Mr Kenyon was getting very paddle happy! – enjoy! I will try and up load more tomorrow as well as send you the final scene of our production.

Have a look at the hall of fame below to learn more about images and statues linked to Justice (click link to enlarge):
If you are interested in ‘Lady Jusitce’ , please take time to look at ‘Verity’ created by Damien Hirst which is placed on the docks at Ilfracombe, Devon.
A 66 foot stainless steel and bronze sculpture named Verity, created by world famous artist Damien Hirst, stands on the pier at the entrance to the harbour looking out over the Bristol Channel towards South Wales. It has been loaned to the town for 20 years. The name of the piece refers to “truth” and Hirst describes his work as a “modern allegory of truth and justice”.
The bible story we will refer to this week is Jonah and the whale:
Justice could mean giving wrong doers the punishment they deserve i.e… the punishment fitting the crime- just desserts, an eye for an eye, etc. However, it could also mean giving all people- particularly the poor and oppressed – what is right and fair for them to have i.e… life, health, freedom, and dignity- this is social justice.
We have used many different bible stories to emphasize this: Jonah and the Whale is one.

Last half term, as a whole school we focused on the Christian Values ‘Faith and Belief’. At the end of each half term, a child from every class is selected to be our values champion, this is because they displayed faith and belief throughout the half term.
Well done all to all the children who were awarded the values champion certificate and cross badge. Here are a few champions:
This half term we are focusing on ‘Justice and Humility’.
Thank you to all the parents, carers and children who joined us today for our transition picnic today. It was so lovely to see everyone getting to know each other and enjoying the lovely weather. There will be another opportunity to visit school and find out more about the September start and ask any questions you may have. This next meeting will be held in the 24th June. Thank you all again!

Philippians 2:3-4, Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.
Please join us with a prayer focusing on humility:
