We have had volunteers in school to do an ‘Open The Book’ Assembly where they read Bible stories – this was led by Rev. Jane Cook. This is going to be a regular event, and they gave school a children’s Bible.
Year 1 had a great time at Whitburn Library. They enjoyed listening to stories about Pete the cat with his multicoloured shoes and his groovy buttons. They loved singing along to the guitars and making their own cat puppet.
In Year 4, after our visit to Whitburn Methodist Church, we thought about ways in which we could help people in our local community. One of the charities that the Church supports is Hospitality & Hope in South Shields. The charity has a foodbank, a clothes bank, a soup kitchen and also a shower and washing machine for people to use when they visit. We are very grateful to all of our parents, carers and extended families who have been collecting old clothing to donate to this very important cause. Miss Peart has delivered a mountain of bags to their warehouse unit and all of the staff were overwhelmingly grateful.
Our school choir have been very busy recently. They visited the Barnes Institute to sing and all sang beautifully.
The choir also went on the bus to Tesco’s where we were singing some of our favourite Christmas songs. We were all a bit nervous at first but once we started singing we relaxed. Our behaviour was impeccable and the customers were very generous. We even sang songs on the bus home and raised even more money. Well done everyone we made £120.
