Themes we covered during the Autumn Term:
In September we celebrated Harvest with crafts and prayer stations . We also learnt about the miracle that Jesus performed with only 5 loaves and 2 fish.
Boris the Heartsmart robot helped us with the High 5
Don't forget to let love in
Too much selfie isn't healthy!
Don't rub it in, rub it out
Fake is a mistake
No way through isn't true.
The dark nights in November helped us to think about "light". Jesus said "I am the light of the world". We made things, sang songs, played games and listened to stories. Faith, our Prayer Bear, helped us to understand that Jesus will always be with us to give us light and show us His way.
Our song, "Shine from the inside out, that the world will see you live in me" had lots of actions for us to learn so that everyone could join in.
Thoughts and Prayers
Members of Christ Church Ince (Ince Parish) meet in School on a Wednesday morning once every month to pray for our school, the children, the families and the staff team. The prayer time is before school starts and lasts for around 20 minutes. The next time we meet will be on Wednesday 11th October.
A confidential prayer request box will be available at the front office for Prayer requests. If there is anyone you would like us to pray for please fill in a request card to put in the request box. There is no need to leave a name, unless you want to. All request will be made a matter of prayer.
Throughout the school year, children in years 2 - 6 visit Christ Church, one year group each week. The purpose of the visit is to help them to get to know our church better and to learn more about Jesus through craft, story and song. The children really enjoy their visits to church, providing it doesn't rain!
For our visits to church during September the theme was Harvest. Through the bible story of Noah, we learnt how God provided for them, then gave them a sign of hope, a rainbow. During October when the them was family and friends, activities were planned around the Bible story about the prodigal son who's father never gave up hope that one day the son would return home. "Light" was the theme for November when we discussed how Jesus is the light of the world and how he helps us to feel safe and shows us the best way to live. the children enjoyed visiting prayer stations and getting involved in different craft activities.
