A caring Christian family, striving to achieve our best

Guiding Lights

The guiding lights are an important part of our Christian school family. These year 6 children play a vital part in supporting RE and worship in school. 

 

The role of our guiding lights is as follows:

 

  • Organising and leading half termly worship.
  • Running the prayer garden.
  • Spotting and rewarding values in action; school values and British values.
  • Supporting in planning half termly worship.
  • To produce a termly newsletter to be sent to children and parents.

 

Follow this page to find out more information about what our guiding lights have been up to in school each half term. 

Autumn 1:

Even thought this has been the first half term we have been doing our roles, we have been very busy. We have been spending time going round school looking at the RE displays in the classrooms and checking that we are happy with them. We have realised we are really lucky to have such beautiful displays in our classes that not only look amazing but also really help us with our RE work. 

 

We have also helped to lead a key stage 2 worship, all about the Christian value we have focused on this half term, generosity. We told the following story about a lion and a mouse and saw how generosity and kindness were clear to see throughout this story. We loved that it promoted the message that: 'No act of kindness is every wasted!'

 

A Lion lay asleep in the forest, his great head resting on his paws. A timid little Mouse came upon him unexpectedly, and in her fright and haste to get away, ran across the Lion’s nose. Woken from his nap, the Lion laid his huge paw angrily on the tiny creature to kill her.

 

“Spare me!” begged the poor Mouse. “Please let me go and some day I will surely repay you.”

 

The Lion was much amused to think that a Mouse could ever help him. But he was generous and finally let the Mouse go.

 

Some days later, while stalking his prey in the forest, the Lion was caught in the trap of a hunter’s net. Unable to free himself, he filled the forest with his angry roaring. The Mouse knew the voice and quickly found the Lion struggling in the net. Running to one of the great ropes that bound him, she gnawed and chewed it until it parted, and soon the Lion was free.

 

“You laughed when I said I would repay you,” said the Mouse. “Now you see that even a Mouse can help a Lion.”

 

We hope you have enjoyed reading about what we have done this half term.
