The Carey Project Assembly

06/10/2017

We were joined by Lydia, Ruth and Mrs Chavez from the Carey Project for an assembly this week. They came to tell the children all about their time spent in Greece over the holidays with refugee children. They spent time providing activities such as art, dance and crafts for the children there. The Carey Project was supported by last year's Year 6 children so it was lovely to see how their efforts helped provide much needed relief and enjoyment for the children in Greece.

Y6 Leavers' Service at St John's

31/07/2017

Y6 took part in their final communion service yesterday. It was based around the theme of the Jungle Book song 'The Bare Necessities' . We looked at the beatitudes as the 'bare necessities' - the basic principles to live our lives by. We then went on to focus on the lyrics 'forget about your worries and your strife' .

Good luck and God Bless Y6 and remember 'Don't worry, be happy!'
