Autumn 2021 – Face to Face with Jesus
Our collective worship series this term has lots of different parts. Can you spot the connections and link them all together?
Monday – A meeting with someone who came Face to Face with Jesus. What can we learn about what Jesus was like?
Tuesday – Singing, Fr Chris, Open the Book and a promise from God
Wednesday – “A puppet and a present” and “Mr Stowers Explains…”
Thursday – Celebrating our weeks achievements
Friday – Class collective worship – bringing it all together.
Each week a class will take responsibility for the Prayer space in the atrium for all the children visit. Each class will also have the opportunity to ask a question for “Mr Stowers Explains”.

This week has been our harvest festival. We have been celebrating all the fabulous gifts that God gives to us and thinking about how we can share these fairly across the world.
On Monday we talked about the history of the harvest and how in the past children at Alpington would have had time off school to help their families bring in the harvest. We talked to Mrs Hemant about what harvest is like on the farm today. Lots of the children shared their harvest experiences.
On Wednesday Mrs Eland and Empathetic Elephant told us the story of the lady that Jesus met at the well in Samaria. We also used the flask to explain the Trinity. The Holy Spirit was like the fresh clear water. It’s inside of us and always with us where ever we go.
We have been enjoying singing together again. Click here for a clip of one of the songs we have been learning for harvest.

This year we are running our school council a little differently. We will have a different team each half term who are responsible for fundraising for a cause they feel passionate about. This term a team of children are raising money for McMillan Cancer Support as their lives have all been touched by cancer in the last year.
We will also elect committees to act on current issues that the children feel are important. This term we will have 2 committees with one child from each class on each. These will be The Eco Team and the Fairness Committee. These ideas have come from children who came to see Mrs Welch with an idea which they thought it was really important to act on. The Eco team will be joining Molly, Evie and Rosie and the Fairness Committee will be joining Nell, Olivia, Alice and Tillie.
