  • Year 1 Christingles

    Published 23/11/23

    In Year One RE lessons, we have been learning all about how Christians celebrate Christmas.  We learnt that Christingles are used by some Christians in church during the time of Advent, to celebrate the birth of Jesus and Jesus as the Light of the World. 

    We also learnt that each part of the Christingles has a special meaning behind it: 

    The word Christingle means 'Christ's light'.  

    Candle- Jesus is the light of the world. 

    Orange- The world. 

    Red Ribbon- Christ’s blood and God’s love. 

    4 Sticks- 4 seasons  

    Sweets- God’s creation. 


    Look how amazing my Christingle looks!

    Published 21/11/23

    One of our pupils took part in the British National Ballroom & Latin Championships in Blackpool at the weekend and competed in 10 competitions.

    The most prestigious of these was the British National Closed Solo Championship, in which she had to dance Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Quickstep and Viennese Waltz back to back.  Approximately 50 girls from the UK and Europe were in this competition and Zoe got through all of the rounds to get to the final.  In the final she achieved a highly respectable 7th place.

    As well as ballroom, she entered the following Latin competitions - Cha Cha Cha, Samba, Rumba and Jive.  Again, all of the entrants were the best Latin dancers in the country.

    She finished the day with the following results -

    4 x 4th Places

    1 x 5th Place

    1 x 6th Place

    1 x 7th Place

    5 x Semi-final Places

    We are super proud of you. Well done!

  • Year One RE

    Published 06/11/23

    As part of our RE learning, Year One visited St Peters Church on Thursday 26th October. We took a look around the inside the church, identifying key Christian features, how these features are set out and used.  This was a great opportunity to experience the inside of the church through our own eyes.

    “The pews are where we sit.”

    “The font is where we baptised.”

    “The candles mean, Jesus is the light of the world.”

    Well done Year One!
