Our Connection with The Church
Claverley is a Church Aided School and part of the Hereford Diocese. We have very close links with All Saints Church, Claverley. The vicar leads worship and supports RE lessons in school. We visit the church regularly to celebrate significant Christian festivals such as Harvest, Easter and Christmas. Our children contribute to these services as well as other community events such as the church Flower Festival and Remembrance Day.
We are lucky to have an active and lively ‘Open the Book team’ who share Bible stories with the children weekly. They use the Lion Storyteller Bible to act out or tell the story and share the key messages.
This year we have celebrated Harvest in a very different way. We missed being able to come together in the church as a whole school community. Garry produced a Harvest Festival for us all to watch and each class have contributed too! A BIG thank you to everyone who has donated tins, packets and toiletries for the Bridgnorth Foodbank. It just shows that even though we couldn’t all get together in person, we are all able to take the time to support others
Our value for this half-term is Responsibility.
The Bible teaches that life is a gift from God and it is our responsibility to use our talents and abilities in the best way we can.
In school this may be shown as: making good decisions about our own behaviour, taking responsibility for our learning, being independent and caring for others. Responsibility also includes thinking about being a good citizen and caring for our environment.
We have started off by thinking about how we can take responsibility for what we say. A follower of Jesus, called James, wrote to some people who were members of the church. He said that the tongue was like a tiny spark that could spread. We reminded ourselves that it was good to use our words to help, encourage others, and to be kind.
