This Terms Values
Our Christian value for the first half of the summer term is Humility. We will be exploring how true humility is displayed as well as considering the effects of a lack of humility. Stories and parables from the Bible will be used to illustrate this value and we will discover how Jesus demonstrated humility, as well as other key figures in history; providing examples for us to follow.
For the second half of the term, our value is Courage. As we all face a time of change at the end of the school year, we will contemplate how we can find the courage we need to make the most of new opportunities and, hopefully, encourage others as well. There are many examples of people showing courage in the Bible – David needed a great deal of bravery to face Goliath as did Daniel in the den of lions – to name but two.
The British value for the term reflects upon how we demonstrate acceptance of different faiths and beliefs. Within our school community, a number of different faiths are represented. We are always interested to learn about how people practise their beliefs and warmly welcome those who can enlighten us either in an assembly or by visiting a class. Please see your child’s class teacher or a member of the leadership team if you would like to discuss this further.
These values will be discussed with your children during whole school and phase assemblies, as well as in class. Please talk to them about what they are learning in terms of these principles and how they may apply them in their everyday lives.
