Virtues & Values
Our focus for this term is

We are growing to be grateful for our own gifts, for the gift of other people, and for the blessings of each day; and generous with our gifts, becoming men and women for others.
During this half term we will be recalling the events in the Christmas story and providing the children with time to reflect on the birth of Jesus. We will then consider how people in modern day society can be messengers of God. Furthermore, we will look at Mary's annunciation and then analyse the different types of literature in the Bible.

We are growing to be Intentional by making the right choices and choosing to live the way God wants us to; and Prophetic by setting a good example to others.
