Year 5 Blog October 2017
Year 5 have been very busy during the last few weeks preparing for our first parent assembly on Friday October 6th. The theme of the worship was a Christian perspective on creation and creativity.

Life is a ‘gift’ entrusted by a loving creator God to humankind for a purpose. This is seen as the creative spirit within each person.
Each of us learns to value and explore, celebrate and enjoy this world in all its diversity and mystery. With this comes our responsibility to ensure the creation is not spoiled.

We are responsible for looking after creation and sharing it.
In all the great civilisations in human history, as well as many of the more primitive ones, artists have been highly respected and have occupied an important place in their communities. This is because artists are able to touch the heart and inspire the imagination.
It is no accident that many churches are filled with the work of artists. Only in the last two centuries, have ordinary people been able to read and write, so in the past artists would try to tell stories from the Bible by painting pictures, creating sculptures and composing beautiful music.

We have reflected on the planet as a gift from God and our joint responsibility for the environment.

Year 5 enjoyed creating stained glass window designs and writing about special gifts they have received.
As we approach Christmas, we reflect on those children who are not as fortunate as we are. In the next few weeks, we will be launching this year’s Operation Christmas Child Appeal. We hope you will support us again this year.
