On Monday 9th January, we celebrated EPIPHANY, the ‘Feast of The Three Kings’ (which is actually on 6th January) and the end of the Christmas season at St. George’s Church, on the invitation of the Reverend Kate McNeice.
Kate usually comes into school every Thursday to lead assemblies and on this occasion we decided to hold our assembly at our nearest church, where Kate leads Sunday services. It was a great opportunity for the children to sing the Christmas carols they have been learning to the Whole school community, including many of our parents, in two separate Key Stage assemblies. The songs included ‘Go Tell it on the Mountain’, ‘We Three Kings’, ‘In The Bleak Midwinter’, ‘The Zither Carol’, ‘It was on a Starry Night’ and ‘Villancico de Gloria’( A Spanish Flamenco Christmas Carol). The children sang beautiful.
Thank you to all the parents who attended and also to Kate for leading the assembly and making us so welcome.
We always welcome visits and talks about the range of major world faiths that our children study within their R.E. curriculum. If you are able to come in and talk about your faith to a class, year group or larger group of children, we will be very happy to have you in school. Please contact Mr Sharp (R.E. leader) if you are interested.
