Term 3 - Perseverance and Courage

Our Christian Value in Term 3 is Perseverance and Courage. Basic to Christian faith is the claim that God is always present in every situation. This belief has led to great acts of courage that have included facing danger and opposition, overcoming fear, making a stand for what is right and encouraging others to persevere. Through Collective Worship and reflection, we will encourage our children to find the strength and be courageous. 

Through the Parable of The Lost Sheep, we will be encouraging the children to persevere, just like the shepherd did in the story when he lost his sheep. Just like the shepherd we will remind the children to:

Not give up easily

Try, try and try again

Stick at a task and see the job through to the end.

“The Lord is my light and my salvation--whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life--of whom shall I be afraid?”

                                                                                                       (Psalm 27:1) 

 

But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favour with God."

                                                                                                        (Luke 1:30)

 

"The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can Man do to me?"

                                                                                                     (Hebrews 13:6) 

 

The children will be encouraged to reflect upon this value through Collective Worship.

Our beautiful Reflection Areas, which can be found in our classrooms; by the front office; along the Key Stage 1 corridor and by the Year 3 area, are the perfect place for reflection and quiet time.
