We continue to be amazed at how well the children have settled, well done to all our fab pupils. As restrictions lift nationally, the academy will also look to 'ease' some areas. This will be done in a careful and progamatic way. We will not put pupils and staff at risk. The academy will remain vigilant, and we ask that parents do the same and support us to continue to get things back on 'an even keel'. As the children are settled, we will now be implementing the LA and national guidance on absence and lateness......thank you for your support in getting the children to school and on time, it helps them to settle in the morning and helps us to support their learning.

Freemantle

Church of England Community Academy

Collective Worship

At Freemantle we value and respect the beliefs of others and learn about the different religions and worldviews they may have. We follow the agreed syllabus, Living Difference III, in our RE lessons and, as a Church of England School, we also use the scheme Understanding Christianity, a recommended syllabus from the dioceses.  In KS1 the chosen second religion is Judaism. In KS2 we look at other religions such as Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. Please see the attached document which outlines the topics your child will be taught in RE this year.

In September 2017 Miss Myszkowski invited all children across the school to take part in a competition. The competition was for everyone to design a Collective Worship pebble. The designs were given to Mrs Newbold, who selected the winning entry for each class. She then worked with those children to paint the pebbles for each class.

 

But why pebbles?

 

The idea behind the pebble is to represent the children in each class in our school. Each pebble will live in the Reflection Areas in each classroom and carried into our whole school Worship sessions, where the pebbles will be placed on the table with the cross, bible and candle, which represent the Holy Trinity. The pebbles symbolise how we all come together in worship and together embrace our school values of Fellowship, Creativity and Courage.

 

A huge thank you to Mrs Newbold for all of her hard work and special thanks to the children who the following children who created the winning designs:
