Events

On Thursday 2nd May we were visited by Imram Kotwal. He led an interactive worship on Islam. Introducing Islam to children (Reception to Year 6) in a fun & engaging way using multi-sensory artefacts, video and a quiz. This was followed by two workshops to class 5 and 6. They looked at the questions. 

  • What does it mean to be a Muslim in Britain today?
  • Questions and answer session with a Practicing British Muslim

Student feedback from the Islam awareness sessions was very positive.

Class Five pupil: 'I felt heard and seen, it was nice to celebrate my religion.

Class Six: 'I didn't know a lot and I know all the facts before I got to high school.

Class Two: 'He was exciting to listen to, and I know lots about Islam. 

Reception child: 'I had fun and I know about the five pillars of Islam'.

Valentine's Disco 2024

We went to  church for an Ash Wednesday. During the service the children were offered the chance to have a blessing and an ash cross on their foreheads. We also welcomed our new priest Rev. Catherine.

Christingle Service 

We gathered together in church on Friday 22nd December to celebrate Christingle. Every December, the whole school attends a Christingle Service at St Mary's Church. This service celebrates Jesus as being the light of our world.

Christingle.....What does it mean?

Christingle is a celebration to share the light of Jesus and spread the message of Hope.

Christingles are the oranges that are wrapped with red tape, decorated with sweets and finished off with a candle. Each element has a special meaning to tell the Christian Story.

  • The Orange represents The World
  • The Red tape or ribbon symbolises the love and blood of Christ
  • The Sweets/dried fruit represent all of God's creations
  • The lit Candle represents Jesus's light in the world, bringing Hope to those living in darkness

The resources were kindly donated so that the children can each make their own Christingle ready for the service.

Helping others in Lent

During Lent, which runs from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday, we are reminded once again to ask, ‘What can we do for to help others?’

Our children decided that our Lent charity this year would be Dementia UK. Many of our children, at Christmas, were involved in the ‘Dementia Friendly Todmorden’ event at St. Mary’s and many also sang at our local care home, Asquith Hall. These events touched many children’s hearts and they decided they would like to give more.

The children planned and ran class charity events all the way through Lent. These events included a chocolate and teddy tombola, a sponsored walk, bounce and climb, a loose change challenge, a bake sale and other events.

We raised an amazing £4,113.84 for Dementia UK!
