Church School Distinctiveness

School Vision

As Jesus welcomes and values children, we at St Michael’s aspire to welcome and value all members of our community. We believe that this welcome and value provides opportunities for all to succeed.

Matthew 18: 2-5

The Collective Worship Council led worship, sharing our school vision with the whole school.

We enjoy singing this song. It helps us remember that our school is a place of welcome where everyone is valued.

A message to the Coningsby St Michael's community

During the period of school closure during the spring and summer terms, staff wanted to make sure the pupils new how much they were valued. They made this video to share with our whole school community.

 

Collective Worship

We enjoy a daily act of collective worship, in many different ways, sometimes as a whole school or key stage or simply with our own class. We particularly enjoy having visitors to lead our worship including Reverend Sue from St Michael's, Reverend Gordon and Deacon Jayne from the Methodist church, Padre Chris from RAF Coningsby and the Open the Book team. Here is our collective worship plan.

Our Church School Values

 

The six Church School Values we are learning about this year are:

  • Friendship
  • Perseverance
  • Compassion
  • Thankfulness
  • Forgiveness
  • Truthfulness
Picture 1

Our Church School Value for this Term is:     

Truthfulness

"Dear children, let us not love with words or speech, but with actions and in truth."

1 John 3 : 18

 

                                        

Our Bible story this term is:

The story of Jacob and Esau

Genesis 25. 19-34

 

 

 

 

 

As a Rights Respecting School we will be taking time to use the UN convention on the rights of every child to consider how these link to our themes in worship. 

 

As a church school this term we are thinking about our church school value of Truthfulness.. We also love to sing. This is a song we love about living in Truth and shining our light!

We had a wonderful Christingle afternoon! We welcomed parents from over 100 of our school families into the classrooms and all the children made their own Christingle. This was a brilliant way to explore the meaning of the elements of the Christingle. Each class teacher then led an act of worship, with prayers and singing and a moment of reflection as we lit our candles.

Exploring Pentecost

On Friday 18th May Coningsby St Michael's CofE Primary School spent the day exploringPentecost. 

We started the day with a fire in the Mystical garden. Every class visited the firepit which was the perfect setting to hear the story of Pentecost when, after Jesus' death, the disciples first received the Holy Spirit. They listened to the explanation of the spirit coming as a mighty wind and flames of fire and started to understand the impact of the Holy Spirit on the disciples and the early church.

The afternoon was then spent exploring the concepts of the Holy Spirit, the Trinity and Pentecost in a wide variety of ways. The reception children made fiery headbands and used these to role play the story in the outdoor learning area. Year 1 created symbols of the Holy Spirit and year 2 and year 5 spent time exploring the idea of the Holy Spirit as a guiding voice by playing trust games as a class. Year 6 produced some amazing art work to represent what they had understood from the day and were able to talk about their images displaying the "power, peace and excitement" that the Holy Spirit brought to the early church. In year 4 the children explored the fruit of the spirit, thinking about the changes that the Holy Spirit is said to bring to those who receive it and in year 3 the children made twirlers that moved in the wind reminding them that the Holy Spirit can be felt but not seen. There were many other activities of course, Holy Spirit charades and the characteristics of God translated in many languages amongst others, and all classes were able to learn about these tricky concepts in ways that were most relevant to them.

It was a fantastic day, with everyone developing a deeper understanding of Pentecost, children and teachers alike!

Our Cairn ceremony gave us an excellent opportunity to explore what it means to belong to the Christian family and to the family of Coningsby St. Michael's. In these pictures the new reception children are adding their stones to the school cairn.

This morning we were joined by the "Open the Book' team from Coningsby Methodist church in our collective worship. We enjoyed the retelling of the creation story and joined in by being the growing things, the creeping, splashing and flying things! Can you spot us doing the actions?
