All Saints C/W Primary School – Values Day ‘Courage’

On Friday 12th February all the pupils, staff and families at All Saints Primary School in Barry shared a wonderful day of ‘courage’
To celebrate ‘Courage’ - the value for the half term, the whole school carried out a variety of exciting activities.  During the day, the staff from St Margaret’s Roman Catholic Primary School, Aberdare, also joined us and worked alongside our children.
In Foundation phase our pupils worked with one other to overcome fears by completing a number of exciting challenges.  They discussed times when they had been brave and what it felt like.  They used courage to learn new skills and also wrote their our own version of Daniel and the Lion's Den on the iPads!
In Key Stage 2 our pupils wrote about what courage meant to them.  They played games to help them think what to do in different situations where they needed to show courage.  They also used a variety of resources to find words to describe courage and showcased their findings by using different apps.
We had children using LEGO to build occasions where they have shown courage but also examples from Bible where courage was needed.  One class even created their own programmable lions to move, roar and sleep to recreate the story of Daniel and the Lion’s Den. 
All classes designed a candle and wrote a prayer on them.  These were shared at the end of the day, as the whole school made a giant candle in the playground to symbolise that Jesus is the light of the world and with him in our lives we will never walk in darkness or face our fears alone.
We look are already looking forward to our next Values Day.
