Reverend Jonathan Carmyllie
In June Reverend Carmyllie came to speak to Year 6 about his experience of pilgrimage. He taught them what pilgrimage meant and why it was so important. He also explained to the children that the scallop shell had become an important symbol for pilgrims.
Bishop Philip, the Bishop of Burnley kindly agreed to talk to our Year 6 Oak class as part of their learning on why and how do we prepare at Advent. He also delivered an amazing assembly to the whole school, which we all loved and learnt so much from.
Bishop Philip really inspired the children during his visit. We thought about gifts and the message of Christmas. Bishop Philip was also kind enough to answer our tricky questions!
On Thursday 21st October, Year 3 and 4 have the privilige of being taught to sing songs of worship by John Robinson who is the director of music at Blackburn Cathedral. Come back to find out how much we enjoyed it!
Dr Sam Johnson, the Director of Education for Blackburn Diocese, gave us permission to use his sermon as part of the Year Six unit of study on Creation and Science. Year Six particularly enjoyed the reminder that every single flower is unique in some way!
You can watch his sermon, as part of the service in his own church, by using the link below. His message begins 40 minutes into the service:
