As a Church school, the teaching of Christian values underpins all of our work. The pupils take part in a rich and varied provision for Collective Worship which relates to the Christian Values chosen by our pupils, staff and governors as being the most relevant and important to Watermoor C of E Primary School. Most of this curriculum is taken from the Gloucestershire Agreed Syllabus, Roots to Fruits and the Values for Life programme.
Harvest Festival 9th October 2015
Thank you to all our pupils, friends and families for your kind and generous donations for our Harvest Festival today. All of the donations were blessed by the Reverend Karen Schmidt, in the presence of our School Council, and then were very gratefully received by the residents of Mulberry Court. Well done to Unicorns Class and to Mrs South and Mr Yiend for a fantastic Harvest service at Holy Trinity Church.
Watermoor's Festivals and Worship 2014 - 2015
Harvest Festival 2014:
We celebrated our Harvest Festival on Friday 10th October and our presentations and songs reflected this term's Values For Life: Thankfulness and Generosity.
Giants class with Mrs. Stockwell explained why we celebrate Harvest, looking back at the practices of the Anglo Saxons and also describing Harvest celebrations around the world.
Wizards class shared their RE learning with Miss Nobbs about 'The Story of Creation' and a shared-write 'Thank You' poem.
Our Choir sang a reflective song to help us to think about children who are not able to celebrate fruitful harvests.
Children from Unicorns shared a Harvest Prayer they had written in their RE session with Mr. Yiend.
Father Howard blessed our produce, which was then donated to Mulberry Court.
Easter Service 26th March 2015
Our Unicorns class, taught by Miss Haynes, led the whole school in this year's Easter Worship at Holy Trinity Church, with Father Howard, and the children's presentation looked closely at the joy of Jesus' resurrection. The children shared the story of Easter Sunday, poems, thoughts and their own prayers. The school enjoyed singing:
This service was also very special as our 'Purple Light Awards' were presented, for the first time, to those children in each class whose behaviour has been exemplary this term. These deserving children have been invited to a tea party at the Brewery Arts Centre with Mrs. Pearce and Mrs. Pine in the Summer Term.
