RE

At Saint David’s CiW Primary school we recognise the influence that our school and individual teachers have on developing the values of our pupils.

Our pupils learn important Christian Values at school through the relationships they develop, everyday classroom interactions and from the examples set by their teachers. 

 

At Saint David’s CiW Church in Wales Primary School, Christian Values are transmitted daily through:

  • The management, stated mission and aims of our school which is reflected in the ethos.

  • Teachers’ example which helps pupils to internalise ideas of what is acceptable and not acceptable in the living, working community of school.

  • Collective worship, which is an opportunity for school to explore together Christian Values

 

Each half term the whole school explores a different Christian Value. There is a dedicated Christian Value day where each class is immersed into the value through a range of stimulating and reflecting  activities. It is a wonderful opportunity to hear about the different aspects of that value that the pupils have focussed on. When talking to pupils they are very enthusiastic about these days and this is evident in the way that they incorporate the value into their daily activities and across the curriculum.

Home School Values

 

Our School Christian Value this Half Term is: Thankfulness

 

This term in school we will be focussing on the value Thankfulness. We will be hearing stories about being thankful from the Bible and examples from our daily lives. We hope that you will explore this value together at home too. 

Christians believe that God loves and cares for them in many different ways in all aspects of their life. Christians know that their response to this provision should be one of thankfulness and praise.

Thessalonians 5:18 Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Psalm 107:1 Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!

Ephesians 5:20Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

What do we do in school in response to thankfulness?

 

  • We show our appreciation for pupil’s achievements by giving praise, stickers, Dojo awards and certificates to them.
  • We know that having food, clothes and lovely things is a blessing and not a right.
  • We show our thankfulness through our support to charities that help others who are not as fortunate as ourselves.
  • We give thanks to God through our hymns and our prayers.
  • We learn to be thankful for the skills of others and the ways in which they enrich our lives.
  • We say thank you to each other and know that saying thank you is important and polite.
