Whole School Collective Worship – Faith and Belief (Genesis 1-2 – Creation / Earth Day).

Every Wednesday in class, the children will take part in a collective worship which will be teacher led. We will be posting the PowerPoint for you to join in at home if you wish.

The Christian values for this half term are: Faith and Belief. Each week the teacher led collective worship will focus on the Christian Values, with a story from the bible and a link to the wider world. We encourage all children to take part  in the discussions and come together to sing, listen to stories from the bible, pray and reflect.

The first collective worship is by Miss Hutson which has a focus on Genesis 1-2-  Creation and the faith and belief that God put in humans to care for the world he created. This also links in with Earth day on the 22nd April 2021.

Please see powerpoint below for the collective worship.

Hello, I hope that you are all well. Our final day of home learning has an Easter theme!

You could complete this colour by numbers egg sheet. If you are not able to print, why not draw your own!

How about designing your own Easter egg, you must make sure that it is symmetrical (exactly the same on both sides as though you are looking in a mirror!)



Why not practise what you have been learning in Maths by making numbers using things you can find in your garden or your home.

You could log onto Numbots:

Finally, I wish you all a very Happy Easter, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all back in school after the holiday.

Whole School Collective Worship – Perseverance.


Whole school Collective Worship – Perseverance

Good morning, so it is our fourth and final instalment of our whole school collective worship, please feel free to share with your children at home or in class.

This week the focus is Perseverance.


As we develop this week’s value of ‘perseverance’ as a school community, we will consider the following:

  • How are we encouraged and given skills to persevere through difficult times?
  • How does our learning and teaching encourage and motivate children and adults alike?
  • Do we all understand that hard work and perseverance in all aspects of our lives is worth the effort?

A Christian Perspective on Perseverance:

Jesus frequently encouraged his disciples to “endure patiently” the difficulties and obstacles they encountered and to persevere in the face of adversity. He himself trusted in God even when his enemies tried to stop his work and plotted his death.

Please click the link for information and a worksheet on Perserverence – perseverance

Please have a go at the Growtrh Mindset learning zone and see what pushes you to  out of your comfort zone.  This activity is fort you to discuss where you feel comfortable with an activity and where  you push yourself, never give  up, persevere to achieve what you want. Comfort zone 

E.G I feel comfortable writing sentences with capital letters and full stops I am in my danger zone when asked to write sentences with expanded noun phrases .

E.G I am in my comfort zone when kicking a ball, I am in the danger zone when asked to go in goal.

We have a wonderful video from Holy Trinity Church for you to watch: – please click the link. Within the video we focus on the ‘The Parable of the Lost Sheep’  which appears in Luke 15: 3-7


I have included two songs for you to listen to the lyrics focusing on never giving up: –


Inspirational people who never gave up!

Walt Disney – Disney was turned down 302 times before he got his dream of creating “the happiest place on Earth”, better known today as Disneyland.

Michael Jordan –  Jordan is widely considered to be the greatest basketball player of all time, however he was cut from his high school varsity basketball team during his sophomore year. That only inspired him to work harder.

In his words: “I have missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. I have failed over and over and over again in my life and that’s precisely why I succeed.”



 Let us pray :-

Lord Jesus,

When I feel worried about facing a new challenge, help me to persevere. When the going gets tough, help me to persevere.  when I feel like giving up, help me to persevere.




Whole School Collectible Worship – Forgiveness

Whole school collective worship –  Forgiveness

Good morning, so it is our third installment of our whole school collective worship, please feel free to share with your children at home or in class.

This week the focus is Forgiveness.

A Christian Perspective:

Forgiveness is the means by which damaged relationships are restored. It is an act of the will, motivated by love.

For Christians, Jesus’ death on a cross it the ultimate revelation of God’s all forgiving love, and his sacrifice stands a source of inspiration to forgive others, no matter what the cost.

Luke 6:37 – Do no judge and you will not be judged. Do not condemn and you will not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven.

We have a wonderful video from Holy Trinity Church for you to watch: –  please click the link. Within the video we focus on the ‘The Parable of the Lost Coin’  which appears in Luke 15:8–10.

As a school, over the next two weeks we unpicking Jonah and the Whale from the old testament. We will  focus on the importance of saying sorry and asking forgiveness.

I have included a song for you to play and reflect upon, please listen to the lyrics and think about the following:

Talk together about:

-A time when you needed to say sorry

-A time you didn’t say sorry but wish you had

-A time when you had to forgive someone who had hurt or upset you

-How it feels when you are given a new start because someone has forgiven you

Here are lots of interesting things to do linked to the Christian value – Forgiveness –  click to download your copy – forgiveness

Activity sheet  – how-can-i-show-someone-i-am-sorry – activity

Prayer –

Dear Lord,

Thank you that you offer us forgiveness to all through Jesus. Sorry for the times when we have been slow to say sorry to others or not quick enough to forgive.

Please help us to ask for forgiveness when we make a mistake and accept our apology kindly.

Friday 5th March 2021. Maths home learning for Clee Class and Earls Hill Reception (Cygnets)


To start our maths learning today we are going to join in singing some number songs:


Today for our maths learning we are going to make penguins which we can eat! I would like you and your family to make some penguins using very tasty ingredients. Here are some suggestions, or you can use your own ideas:

Penguin Snack

Fun Penguin Activities for National Penguin Awareness DayPenguin Week Summer Camp Activities - Glitter On A Dime

Quick and easy oreo penguins recipe - a fun festive snack or treat for kids or a cute edible topper for Christmas… | Fun winter dessert, Winter snack, Fun kids food

Each time you make a penguin I would like you to write a number sentence. For example:

I made 1 penguin for Mrs Meddins and 1 penguin for Mrs Allcock

I could show this using my hands:

My number sentence would be: 

1 + 1 = 2



I then made 1 penguin for Mrs Dallow

How many penguins do I have now?

Marshmallow & Banana Penguins • Capturing Parenthood             How To Make Frozen Banana Penguins - Almost Too Cute To Eat! - Chocolate Covered Katie









My number sentence will be:

2 + 1 = 3


You can make as many penguins as you wish; the more you make the more number sentences you can write.


When you’ve finished making penguins you and your family get to eat them! Remember each time you eat one I would like you to write a number sentence. So if you make 5 penguins and your mum eats 1 how many will there be left?

You can show this using your hands:

Your number sentence will look like this:

5 – 1 =

I hope you and your family enjoy making and eating the penguins! I would love to see some photographs of your penguins and number sentences.


Have a lovely day and a lovely weekend everyone! See you on Monday.
