EYFS & KS1 Nativity
Our first performance as a class and our first audience in the hall! We performed 'A Miracle in Town' and the children told the nativity story with fabulous songs that brought a smile to many faces. Our Nursery pupils did a wonderful job of their first performance.
Father Ian came to Nursery to introduce himself to the children as the new priest at St James'. It was a lovely time to meet him as he wished the children well for the Christmas period and gave us a blessing. We look forward to seeing more of him at school and church in the new year.
As a class, we have learned about the traditions of the Hindu festival, Diwali. Diwali, is a 'festival of lights' as fireworks light up the sky and diya lamps are lit as part of the celebrations. We looked at different patterns and colours used for diya lamps and used clay and paints to create our own.
Nursery Class Charity
This year Nursery's class charity is Mary's Meals.
Who are Mary's Meals?
Mary’s Meals provides one good meal to some of the world’s poorest children every school day. Our work is named after Mary, the mother of Jesus, who brought up her own child in poverty. Mary’s Meals consists of, respects, and reaches out to people of all faiths and of none.
What do Mary's Meals Believe?
Our vision is that every child receives one daily meal in their place of education and that all those who have more than they need, share with those who lack even the most basic things. Working together with those who share our vision, we believe there is no good reason why this cannot be realised.
What do Mary's Meals do?
Mary’s Meals is a global movement supported by people from many walks of life and different backgrounds. Our mission is to enable people to offer their money, goods, skills, time, or prayer, and through this involvement, provide the most effective help to those suffering the effects of extreme poverty in the world’s poorest communities. We welcome all into the Mary’s Meals family and we believe everyone has something important to contribute to the realisation of our vision.
