This morning we had our first service in church for the Yr.6 bubble led by Reverend Dr. John Walker. We headed to The St Eanswythe chapel and thought about compassion using a large painting of St Eanswythe handing out food to the poor as inspiration.

This week in worship we have been thinking about Jesus as a teacher and how we can learn from the messages he gave us. Today we concentrated on Jesus’ teaching – People know us by our actions, if we do good things we are like a good tree growing good fruit. The children gave some … Continue reading
Continuing their worship about St Eanswythe, Yr.6 went to the church to hunt for things linked to her life. They found banners, paintings, stained glass windows and statues showing some of her life and works.

We found out all about her life and KS2 even did a quiz about her. Thankfully COVID didn’t prevent the tradition of doughnuts. Everyone enjoyed a doughnut in honour … Continue reading
