Reception Welcome Service

On Thursday 24th October, the Reception children and many of their families attended a service of welcome at St. Peter`s Church, Leckhampton.  The service was to formally welcome the children into the family of St Peter`s Church and the School.

The children sang `Our God Is a Great Big God`, with great enthusiasm and the Year 6 choir, led by Mrs Thomas and Mrs Bennett, treated everyone to some beautiful singing.  The service was led by Reverend Paul Wilkinson.  Members of the different groups from school took part in some weaving to represent the importance of all the different groups working together to build the family of the church and school.

The children were given `talk bags`, which contained three pebbles.  These are to promote family dialogue.  The rough pebble is to encourage the children to talk about something in the school day which they might have found tricky, the smooth pebble encourages the children to share a routine part of the day and the shiny pebble is to encourage the children to think about something special which may have happened in the day.  We hope every family will find the bags both useful and enjoyable!
