REMEMBRANCE DAY 2020 - Year 1's Virtual Assembly
Year 1 have produced a virtual assembly for Remembrance Day. This was shared with all the children in the school. They have led us in prayer and helped us to think about all those who have lost their lives or suffered in wars and conflict.
Year 2 worked with Sarah, a local artist, at the start of the week to create willow poppies for our Remembrance Garden.
Today all children went outside separately in their class bubbles to place, poppies, wreaths and decorated pebbles next to our willow soldier; the children have named him Captain Tom. At 11 o'clock everyone stopped for a minute's silence while The Last Post was played throughout the school and outside in our Memorial Garden.
Thank you to all of the children and staff who have helped to create each part of our Remembrance Day activities and reflections. We hope you enjoy the video below.
We recognise that Christ is at the centre of our school and the teaching of Religious Education is at the heart of the curriculum and ethos of St Paul and St Timothy’s Catholic Infant School. This permeates through every aspect of school life. We believe that, through example and teaching, our children will come to know of God’s love and compassion for everyone, and work towards living by the Gospel values following the example that Jesus gave us to “Love one another as I have loved you.” We hope to foster a sensitive and reflective attitude to life.
We firmly believe that
The aim of Religious Education in St Paul and St Timothy’s Catholic Infant School is to provide a programme that takes into account the religious and educational needs of all our children. It is a collaborative activity, which respects and promotes the child’s innate capacity for wonder, awe and reverence i.e. for the ‘spiritual’.
Our aims are:
For RE to be a core subject central to the life of our school, taught discreetly and developmentally.
