As a whole-school community we joined together in worship to acknowledge and celebrate International Day of Peace. We took time to reflect, prayer and pledge that as a school, we would be responsible and respectful in both actions and in words to ensure peace and forgiveness are an integral part of each an every school day at Staplegrove Church School. We made our pledge and made our mark on the Dove of Peace.  ​​​​​​​

We will Remember


Today our Staplegrove Community came together in a virtual Worship to commemorate the end of World War 1 - 11th day, of the 11th month, on the 11th hour. 

As a school, we thought about the courage, service and sacrifice shown by the people who fought for our freedom. We gave thanks and paid our respects.

During our 2 minute silence we reflected on those who have sacrificed during times of war and those who are sacrificing during the challenges times we are currently facing to keep us all safe. 

Each class marked this day of Remembrance in their own special way to pay their respects. 

Rowan Class sent their Remembrance Poppies to our local church, St Johns the Evangelist Church Staplegrove. They have been thoughtfully displayed by a kind member of the Church congregation has for us and the local community to share as a symbol of Remembrance and Service.

World Religion Day. As House Teams, we came together to celebrate and acknowledge Faiths from all around the globe. Children learnt about key aspects and origins of World Religions. As a whole school we shared our learning and celebrated faith through art, movement and creations.

Fun Christingle Making - Children across the whole of Staplegrove Church School have taken part in creating their own Christingle, in preparation for our Christingle service tomorrow. Children from year 6 joined KS 1 and Reception to learn about the meaning of the Christingle and what each element represents to Christians.

Reverend Kivett joined our worship today to bless our school advent wreath. We lite the first candle on the wreath to make the first Sunday in the run-up to Christmas. We thought about Hope, Joy, Love and Peace.

Time to prepare. Christmas is coming! On the lead up to Christmas Reverend Kivett joined us in worship to celebrate Stir-up Sunday.

Harvest Celebration Service at St.John's Church. A wonderful morning giving thanks to God and our school community. Our class wreaths have been beautifully displayed on the Tree of Life at St. John's Church for all to enjoy.

Despite travelling back from the Isle of Wight, Willow class had a peaceful journey back. They enjoyed some quiet activities before boarding the ferry, whilst some of us enjoyed closing our eyes and having a sleep!

As a school we came together on Friday 20th to celebrate International Peace day. We began our day inviting the children to consider in wonder and awe about Peace, what it looks and feels like to them. Children joined together from across the school to work collaboratively in their Team Houses to create peace doves. The doves symbolised our diverse and harmonious community at Staplegrove Church School. We ended our celebration of Peace with a sharing assembly. Children and staff reflected on the meaning of Peace and importance of this special Christian Value both within our own school community and beyond.

Whole School Collective Worship with Mike Strange. We thought about the power of forgiveness and saying we're sorry when we have done wrong to others. The children enjoyed hearing the parable of the Prodigal Son.
