Sinai House leaders Bible Reading

By Collective worship, House Sinai, Religious Education, Year 6

Our lovely Sinai House leaders Annie and Preston visited our EYFS and Key Stage 1 classes this afternoon to read the children a bible story. The house leaders did an excellent job using their “story teller” voices to engage the children. All children listened attentively to the stories and answered questions well. Children in Year 2 were able to read along using their own bibles. Well done Sinai leaders!

Gratitude Tree

By Collective worship, Community, House Jordan, House Sinai, Religious Education

Meet our new Gratitude Tree

At St Alban’s we often say, ‘Gratitude is an attitude.’ We try to appreciate the small and big things and be grateful for what we have.

Next week, as part of our end of day prayer, we will ask the children to think of three things that they are grateful for and think about these things.

Next to the tree will be a golden leaf. If any child would like to share what they are grateful for, then they can write a note and place it on the leaf. Each week, I’ll check the leaf and read out the things that the children are grateful for in collective worship.

Today I am grateful for the sunshine, listening to the children sing in collective worship and the blossom tree in our infant yard. I feel very blessed to work in such a special school.

I’m also grateful to one of our very talented parents, Joanne Openshaw (Blooms and Posies), who created our blossom tree- thank you.

A Message from Sinai House Leaders

By Collective worship, Community, House Sinai

Dear Children,

Exciting news! After half term, we are selling prayer bracelets. If you would like to order a bracelet then please complete the order form attached and hand in to your Sinai house ambassador, who will pass it on to us, your House Leaders. Please hand in by Friday 18th February.

Prayer bracelets remind you to pray about certain things. You can order more than one bracelet and we will be selling them all half term so you can order additional bracelets if you miss the deadline. We’ll keep order forms in classrooms.

All bracelets cost £1.50 and money raised will go towards updating the gratitude tree. Children can bring the money to school when they receive their order.

Thank you,

Ariella and Lexi (Sinai House Leaders)

P.S. We are sending home order forms tonight.

Prayer Bracelets

By Collective worship, Community, House Sinai, Religious Education

Today we were so proud of Sinai, who delivered a fabulous assembly to the whole school. Sinai have a team of children busy making prayer bracelets to sell and raise money for the school. All money raised will go towards updating our reading tree in the school library.

We are hoping to hang blossoms from the ceiling and make it more enticing for the children. Our big idea, is to transform the tree into a gratitude tree. An action that we continuously try to promote at school.

At the end of this week, Sinai are sending prayer bracelet order forms to classes and ‘hopefully’ the bracelets will be ready to purchase after half term. I’ll pop an order form on dojo for parents to see.

Well done Sinai, you were organised, entertaining and truly excellent role models to the whole school- thank you.

House Jordan wins the cup!

By Community, House Carmel, House Jericho, House Jordan, House Sinai

A huge congratulations to House Jordan, who have won the House Cup this half term. To celebrate this achievement, today every child in House Jordan has been awarded a blue house badge.

House points are awarded for outstanding effort and exceptional quality work as well as for any child who has shown positive attitudes that go above and beyond the normal high expectation.

Well done House Jordan!
