Abigail

Hi my name is Abigail and I am Deputy of Jordan.
My interests are gymnastics and I also play the violin. I will improve the school by working with heads of Jordan and Mrs Gurner. If you want your talent or interest celebrating then write your name on the talent board. You could be picked.
Come on house Jordan, we can win this!

Be hopeful, be joyous! 

Jordan house leaders are in charge of celebrating talents in our school. They are looking for volunteers from Jordan House so please let them know if you can help. 

The three main improvements that we would like to make this year are: 

  • To make sure that every body has a chance to share their talent in a celebration assembly. 
  • To organise the best talent contest in the country.  
  • To find out how the school has inspired you to try something different.

The Story of Jordan

The Jordan River is the famous place where Jesus was Baptised by John the Baptist. Jesus did many good things in the areas close to the Jordan River. Jesus teaches and heals people and continues to choose his followers. This is why we say that House Jordan is about Faith and Knowledge.

 

Matthew 3, 13-17

At that time Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan River and wanted John to baptise him. But John tried to stop him, saying, “Why do you come to me to be baptised? I need to be baptised by you!”

Jesus answered, “Let it be this way for now. We should do all things that are God’s will.” So John agreed to baptise Jesus.

As soon as Jesus was baptised, he came up out of the water. Then heaven opened, and he saw God’s Spirit coming down on him like a dove. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love, and I am very pleased with him.”

Today in collective worship we have been learning about democracy. On Monday 9th July the electoral roll will be setting up a polling station in our school hall. This is a great opportunity for the children to experience voting and learn about British values.

 

We will be asking the children to vote on which charity they would like the school to support. Which charity will they vote for? Here are their options:

Cancer Research UK

Bluebell Wood Hospice

Rotherham Food Bank 

 

House leaders will be counting the votes and we will inform you of the result.

Happy St Alban’s Day

Today is St Alban’s Day

Our school sets huge value on the quality of courage so let’s take a moment to think about St Alban’s courageous act.

St Alban is venerated as the first recorded Christian martyr in England. His death came as a result of him shielding a priest to whom he had given refuge. It is in the nature of this story that it concerns one who gave his life for his values and beliefs.
Though a legend the story embodies something of the vulnerability that is required if we are to act in courage. Alban quite literally cloaks himself with the garment of the one he seeks to protect and, in doing so, takes his place.
