Love, learn and live in Christ!

Our Ethos Question this w/b 18th June: Do I recognise and accept that while we have things in common, we are also different?


Come and have a look at what's going on in our Nursery.

It's where the fun begins!

The Way, the Truth and the Life

 This term our topic will be

                             The Church                            

Children will begin to understand that we call the Church the family of God and that we can all belong to this family. We will begin to know that the church building is a holy place where we are all welcome and we can all go to pray.  We will learn that Jesus is present in the tabernacle and we can visit him and begin to understand why Sunday is a special day for us. We will  be thankful  for all the people who look after the Church.
