Sponsored Walk

May 25th, 2018

The whole school enjoyed being active and taking part in the sponsored walk to raise money for FOAS. We managed to dodge the showers and walk around the beautiful surroundings of Avening. There was plenty of mud and puddles which just made the walk even more enjoyable! Well done everyone!

They collaborated with pupils from other schools to develop their skills before applying them in a match. The sports leaders from SWR were brilliant in keeping everyone active and teaching them the rules. Everyone made great improvements with their cricket skills during the session. Well done everyone!

RE- What kind of world did Jesus want?

May 13th, 2018

As part of our work learning about Christianity, Rev. Gerald visited the class to explain how Jesus’ teachings impact on how Christians try to behave and the role the church has in supporting this. He explained things Christians choose to do, such as support foodbanks, visit lonely people and look after the church building, happen because they want to spread goodness around the world.

Later we visited the church to find out more about the work that takes place there. Rev. Gerald showed the pupils the noticeboard with the different activities that take place. They also had the opportunity to meet other members of the church who help prepare for services and look after the clock.

It was a really informative visit and allowed the pupils to recognise how Christians choose to live in a way which helps spread love to those they meet.

All of their performances counted towards a team score at the end of the competition. After some fun relay races the scores were announced and one of our teams won and qualified for the finals at Kingshill School! Well done everyone!
