B Cador: October 2018
Thank you so much to all who helped walk 'the school' to St Margaret's Church yesterday and to those who joined us there for the children's Harvest Service. The church came alive being so full! We were also able to enjoy and appreciate the talents of the floral team at St Margaret's, with the church decorated for their Harvest services last weekend.
It was lovely to see so many of our children taking an active role in leading us through the service with the message of Harvest — thanks, friendships and sharing. Base 5 played around with the letters of HARVEST to share a very important message. Base 4 informed us with lots of facts about Harvests around the world and strange and wonderful fruits. Role playing and retelling the story of The Good Samaritan by Base 3, followed by the choir leading the singing of 'Sowing the seeds of friendship', was wonderful! Base 2 sharing with us all the things they needed to be thankful for.
How lovely to have our Little Wrens and new starters in Base 1 experiencing and enjoying their first big, whole school service at church — something which could have been overwhelming for them but wasn't! We loved their version of 'Big, red combine harvester' — a treat for us all! Even a few of our reception children were able to stand up in front of a full church and tell us how they made bread from grain to the loaf last week. What an achievement! Throughout, the children sang beautiful, uplifting songs and Orla led our prayers! What more could we ask for?
We have fantastic children (and staff) at Wrenbury and they certainly showed us how fantastic they were yesterday! Well done everyone!
Dare I say it...Christmas here we come!

The children explored some of the art, looked at past sketch...
