Normally, we share a summary of our weekly Celebration Worship here. However, during lockdown, these have taken place as videos and can be found here
Celebration Worship - 13th March 2020
- We watched one of our Lenten reflections '40', to gather together, while Y3 pupils played a variety of recorder melodies.
- Y3 Presentation - Y3 opened the celebrations with an amazing array of presentations. After their recorder playing, they performed some playground songs and chants. Finally, they performed the poem 'Dog in the School!' They used actions to accompany this, along with a puppet dog led by Christopher G-L.
