Ethos Events

Pie and Patter

We were pleased to welcome members of the wider community in to school for our first 'Pie and Patter' event. The pies served were made with apples from our very special Jubilee apple tree. Our children then came out to sing to our guests and Year 4 did a wonderful job of serving our guests. There was even enough pie left for our servers at the end of the afternoon.

 

 

Helpers' Thank You

Christmas time is a time when we reflect on the year that is nearly at an end and think about all we are thankful for. We are really thankful for all of our wonderful volunteers that help out in school. From PTA and Governors, to gardeners and toast makers and everyone in between we express a huge thanks from everyone at school. We really couldn't do it all without you. We hope everyone enjoyed the afternoon and the entertainment provided by the children. 

 

Remembrance Prayer Stations

The whole of school attended church for our special Remembrance service. The Ethos Group had designed two prayer stations with four others provided by church. The children worked in mixed age groups and interacted with each of the stations. It was wonderful to see everyone coming together and to hear the amazing thoughts each child had. We all really enjoyed the morning.

Family Fun and Food

The Family, Fun and Food session held in November was a huge success. It was lovely to see so many people there and to think about Remembrance. The children made poppies, learnt about the soldiers and created crosses to show they are in the Lord's army. Huge thanks to church for organising such a fantastic session.

Harvest Festival

On Sunday 13th October school joined the congregation at St James' Church, Westhead to celebrate Harvest Festival. The children from each class took an active part in the service and the work completed by the Busy Bees class on Harvest was on display around the Millenium Window.

 

Vision Ambassadors

Two of our Y6 pupils have recently spent the morning at the Liverpool Diocese offices training to become Vision Ambassadors for our school. They really enjoyed the morning learning about our school vision, what it means and gathering ideas for how they can share the vision with others. The morning was filled with games, discussions and of course snacks! We were amazed at the fantastic ideas they came up with for sharing the vision and we are excited to see how they do this back in school.

 

Family, Fun and Food Event

Saturday's 'Family, Fun and Food' session, led by St James' Church, in the village hall was a huge success. It was lovely to see so many familiar faces there enjoying themselves. Everyone enjoyed the activities and of course the chips! The next session is planned for November so keep watch for the date being released. A big thanks to all the volunteers who worked hard to plan, prepare, lead and clean up after the session. We really appreciate everything you do.
