As a Christian school, our values are based on the belief that every child should feel that they are wonderful, amazing, loved, valued and unique, because God made them that way. It is a primary aim of our school that everyone feels valued and respected, and that each person is treated fairly and well. We are a caring community, whose values are built on mutual trust and respect for all.
On 9th October 2017, Year 5 participated in a Pilgrimage. The children were visited 5 different Churches in Melksham. This gave the children the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the Christian faith, and to understand and appreciate the worship and organisation of the Christian traditions. Year 5 were surprised by the layout of each Church. They were eager to find out more information about each Church and asked various questions. Year 5 had to look for different items in each Church, think about how they felt as they entered each Church and had many questions to answer in relation to the Church’s practise and layout. Below are photos of Year 5 exploring the Churches.
Every year, St. Michael’s Church hosts an Angel Festival which is held at the Church. As a School we contribute to this festival by creating angel art. On 20th September 2017, we participated in a House Day in which the children created fantastic angel artwork to be displayed in the Church. Every House completed a different representation of angels, including stain glass windows and collages. The children all worked together well and the staff were impressed with the angel artwork produced. There is a display board in School which shows off some of the artwork from each House. Below are photos of the children creating their art.
