Church – Thy Kingdom Come

Dear Parents and Carers,

St Mary’s are planning a day of prayer on Friday 7th June, under the Archbishops’ call to prayer Thy kingdom come. There will be a variety of prayer ‘experiences’ during the day.

The idea is to pray for the coming of the Holy Spirit on our communities in the days between Ascension (30th May) and Pentecost (9th June).

As part of this day of prayer, the children will be joining St Mary’s Church on Friday 7th June at 14:15.

All parents and carers are also invited. The children will sing songs and have time to reflect and think about their neighbours and those who might be in need of prayer.

Due to the timing of this, please be aware that children will need to be collected from the church at 15:15.

Best wishes,

Miss Hardingham and Mr Good

Easter Church Service

Children, parents and staff came together to celebrate our Easter Service. Thank you to Open the Book who got us into the spirit of Easter by parading around the church. Well done to our Easter Egg competition winners. And a special mention to Mrs Harper who, after working at the school for 6 years as a teaching assistant, is retiring. She will be missed but we wish her a very happy retirement.

The Barber Battles – click image for more photographs

The Barber Battles marked Mrs Barber’s last day at North Elmham Primary School. The games saw our much-beloved teacher (and Assistant Headteacher) of 12 years, compete against the children in various challenges. Mrs Barber won – being such a competitive person she wouldn’t even let children beat her!

It was a lovely send-off for her as she moves on in her career to a new school with new challenges. She has inspired so many children at North Elmham School, and the staff will certainly miss working with her as she is such a kind person who would do anything for anyone at the drop of a hat.

We wish her all the very best and hope she will come back and visit us again soon.

Making choices

In collective worship this week we discussed making choices and taking responsibility for the choices we make.

We were set a challenge: a child left the hall whilst we hid a bar of chocolate. We could help our friend by saying ‘hot’ or ‘cold’ as they tried to find the chocolate bar or we could say nothing at all.

What choice do you think we made?

Of course we helped our friend to find the chocolate and made lots of noise in the process!
