B Cador: October 2017
The children led a lovely Harvest Service at St Margaret's Church this afternoon.
After a warm welcome from Reverend Alison, our younger children from Base 1 retold the story of The Little Red Hen interspersed with lovely singing of new Harvest songs by the rest of the school. The Parable of the Sower was retold by Base 4.
Throughout the service whether through story, Bible reading, song or the handing out of tiny seeds to the congregation, we were all left to think about the seed; not only the seed of the harvest but also the seed of friendship.
If every person,
with a friendly smile,
Gave a friendly word,
Walked the extra mile.
In rain and sunshine
Each would go their way
And sow the seeds of friendship.
Our harvest donation this year will go to the Nantwich Foodback as we think on the final words of one of our songs sung today:
For anyone needing food,
We're sharing what we have today.
We have already started recieving donations for Nantwich Foodbank and will continue to receive donations in school and will be handing them over to the Foodbank at the end of the week.
Thank you to all who joined us this afternoon. We received a lot of lovely comments about the service. A big thank you to the children and staff for preparing the service and to all those who have already sent in donations. We know they will be very much appreciated.

I was impressed with how well the children used the...
We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy. Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...
We've spent a lot more time than normal inside this week in Base 1 thanks to all the wet weather, but this has meant that we've had a chance to explore our new 'construction zone'. We have created a space where buildings and models can be kept on display when they are finished. To earn the right to do this the children must write a sentence or a label about their model and display...
