Meet Our Team
Come on St Alban's! Come on Jericho!
My favourite sports are badminton and tennis.
I'm looking forward to improving our school and working with as a team with other house leaders.
You can get anywhere if you’re resilient.
House Jericho are improving Worship in school. They are looking for Jericho volunteers so please let them know if you are willing to help.
The three main improvements that they want to make this year are:
- For children to deliver more collective worships. The sessions will be based on Saints.
- To improve the Worship Team through creating a new worship board and ensuring that the Worship Team says a prayer at the end of each collective worship.
- To create a Bible study group at lunchtimes.
The Story of Jericho
Jericho can be found in the book of Joshua. The book of Joshua could be a great script for an action-packed film. It’s filled with spies, surprise attacks, warfare, leaders and unusual battles.
The plot tells of how the Israelites conquered the land that God promised to their ancestors Abram (Genesis 12:7). Their parents had escaped from Egypt but had not followed God. So the whole generation that left Egypt had died in the desert, leaving the children- under Joshua’s leadership- to conquer the land of Canaan.
The Israelites had to defeat the cities of Canaan one by one, beginning with the famous battle of Jericho (Joshua 6).
The central hero is Joshua, he is resilient and absolutely loyal to God. This is why we say that House Jericho is LOYAL and RESILIENT.
The people of Jericho were afraid because the Israelites were near. They closed the city gates and guarded them. No one went into the city and no one came out.
Then the Lord said to Joshua, “Look, I have given you Jericho, its king, and all its fighting men. March around the city with your army once a day for six days. Have seven priests carry trumpets made from horns of rams and have them march in front of the Ark, on the seventh day march around the city seven times and have the priests blow the trumpets as they march. They will make one long blast on the trumpets. When you hear that sound, have all the people give a loud shout. Then the walls of the city will fall so the people can go straight into the city.”
Year 2 have been busy writing Easter Prayers this week- here is a taster of what they have done. For more examples look on the year 2 portfolio page.
The school hopes that you all have a blessed Easter and we look forward to seeing you after the holidays.
Yesterday, House Leaders had a wonderful time meeting the Mayor of Rotherham and Councillor Cutts at Rotherham Town Hall.
The children sat in the chambers and asked the Mayor questions about her role. Then we were given a tour of the Town Hall.
We hope this trip inspired the children to think about what difference they can make to improve our community.
