Year 6’s Leavers Assembly

By | News, Religious Education, Visits, Year 6

Today was a very emotional service at St Alban’s as the school community said farewell to our year 6 class. Highlights of the event:

 

  • Amelia being presented with the Pycroft Bible by Margaret Pycroft.
  • Mr Woodhouse and Oliver having a David and Goliath fight.
  • School prayers read out by Isabelle, Laini and Charlie.
  • Singing ‘One more step along the way I go’.
  • But most of all spending precious time together in our Church.

Sending our best wishes to such a lovely class who have worked incredibly hard over the last 8 years and grown into kind young people.

Make your vote count!

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.

Year 2’s Creepy Writing

By | News, Year 2

Today I was impressed with year 2’s  writing about spiders. The children really tried hard to engage their reader through using splendid vocabulary and adding pop up creatures.

 

Well done year 2.

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.
