BESSELLS GREEN BAPTIST CHURCH
It is always lovely to see Rev. Ingram and Josh Arnott from the Bessells Green Baptist Church. They regularly lead our religious assemblies. Recently they spoke to the children about Riverhead being part of a larger community, how we are all part of a wider world, and how lucky we are to live in such a lovely place.
CHRISTMAS CAROLS AND CHRISTMAS TREES!
Christmas is full of traditions and we have some at Riverhead that we like to keep. We took part in the Christmas Tree Festival at St. Mary’s Church again this year. Mrs Cherry and Mrs Perry helped some of the children make decorations out of natural materials such as pinecones, leaves and acorns, which they proudly used to decorate our tree.
Year Two visited the residents of Rivermere and entertained them with songs and music from their Christmas Production. The ladies and gentlemen really enjoyed watching and joining in with them, and we were delighted to share our Christmas cheer.
A new event, which we hope to repeat each year, is the joint Riverhead and Amherst Choir assembly. Ms Dillon and Mr Clarke and their respective choirs sang some Christmas carols to the whole school on Wednesday.
AN IMPORTANT JOB FOR ECO CLUB!
Eco Club were asked, by the Parish Council, to name the new magnificent addition to the woodland area last week. They thought of names such as “Face Man”, “Fairy Tree”, “Mr Oakley” and “Head Man”. The name which everyone decided on was Mr. Oakley.
ST. MARY'S CHURCH
Our Year One and Two children had lovely visits to St. Mary’s Church.
Our Year One children were supporting their R.E. work about Christian celebrations. Rev Booth talked to them about baptism and weddings in the Church.
Year Two discussed religious buildings with Rev. Booth and their place in our community. The importance of the Church family and everyone’s role in building a strong faith.
We are lucky enough to have regular visits from people who work in our local community and who take the time to talk to the children about a variety of subjects.
Road Safety Day
Everyone in school learnt about Road Safety to ensure the children are taught how to stay safe when travelling near roads. PC Nova O'Leary talked to the children about the importance of wearing their high-vis jackets, which they are given when the start school, every day. This year's theme is 'Tune In' to road safety and avoid distractions when driving. Visit www.brake.org.uk for further information.
Mr Manby talked to the children about his job as a Fire Fighter. They learnt about fire safety and staying safe around bonfires.
