EPIPHANY CELEBRATION AT ST. GEORGE’S – Monday 8h January 2018
On Monday 8th January, on the invitation of the Reverend Kate McNeice, we had a lovely EPIPHANY CELEBRATION at St. George’s Church.
EPIPHANY is the ‘Feast of The Three Kings’ (which is actually on 6th January) and marks the end of the Christmas season
Kate comes into school most Thursdays to lead assemblies and on this occasion we decided, once again, to hold our assembly at our nearest church, where Kate leads Sunday services. It was a great opportunity for the children to sing the Christmas carols they have been learning to the Whole school community, including many of our parents, in two separate Key Stage assemblies. The songs included ‘Go Tell it on the Mountain’, ‘We Three Kings’, ‘Joy to the World’, ‘Mary had a Baby and ‘La Marimorena’ (This year’s Spanish Flamenco Christmas Carol, which the KS2 children chose from a selection of Spanish villancicos). The children sang beautifully and we’re very proud of them.
Thank you to all the parents who attended and also to Kate for leading the assembly and making us so welcome.
We always welcome visits and talks about the range of major world faiths that our children study within their R.E. curriculum. If you are able to come in and talk about your faith to a class, year group or larger group of children, we will be very happy to have you in school. Please contact your child’s class teacher OR Miss Waggett (our R.E. leader) if you are interested.
