Life in a Church School

 

Woodmansey WOW (Worship Our Way) meet weekly to discuss the weekly ‘Thought of the Week’. The children self select to join the Woodmansey WOW and can attend from years 1-6. The WOW club enjoy planning and leading worship, ensuring that Worship is enjoyed and understood by all.

The ‘We Are Woodmansey’ board displays our core Christian Values which are at the heart of all that we do. Our values are often discussed throughout the week and we encourage the children to recognise examples of the values in action, whether they are recognised from within or an act from someone else. These examples are added to our values tree as key rings attached to the keys of St Peter, our school saint. The position of the board is central to the school day and to the main entrance providing a daily reminder of who we are and the path we are on which God chose for us.

Each class space has an area designed for reflection. The Woodmansey WOW are looking at ways to develop these and have recently decided that it is important that the children decide how they wish to use the space. Children have brought in photos and special items to aid in their reflection. They also enjoy using the space for prayer writing.

The Foundation Stage and Nursery children discovered what was unique and special about them. They used art skills to look carefully at themselves and each other. They discussed why they are all different and why it is important to respect the differences we see and know that God made us all unique because we all have a unique job to do.

Our display boards are linked to gospel, reminding us that our talents and gifts which we have been given, have been given to us by God. We celebrate our individual successes throughout the school and in different ways.

We love sharing worship with the Woodmansey community at St Peter’s Church. We enjoy Harvest, Christingle, Easter and other key dates with Revd Canon Jonathan Baker. The Woodmansey WOW lead a section of the worship and families are invited to the church services.
