Vision and Values in Action
Our vision and values drive everything we do.
In line with our vision “many people, one body; many gifts, working together”, we recognise, value and use individual skills, working together to achieve maximum benefit for all.
At the St Mary Federation, our broad and balanced curriculum is underpinned with the aim of developing leadership via nurturing and growing Courage, Curiosity, Confidence, Collaboration and Compassion.
We learnt about Shrove Tuesday, Ash Wednesday and Lent. We thought about repentance and being forgiven. We wrote something we had done wrong and were sorry for on tissue and then saw it being washed away so we could start again.
"Dear God, thank you that you forgive us and don't stay cross, just like our mums" Amen
Look at how it was washed away and made clean
We went on a thinking walk. "I picked this because the lovely colours remember God's love"
This looks a bit like a love heart
"Dear God, thank you for love, Amen"
The horizon, finding something new
Going for goals
We try to be the best we can be, the person God created us to be
This is like the table for the Last Supper
"Thank you God that Jesus was brave and saved everyone"
What a wonderful world.
"Thank you God for creating our world. Please help look after it. Amen"
We are in Lent now.
Curiosity is all about wanting to learn, asking questions and finding out. We were exploring what different cars came past in our maths statistics lesson
Here we are doing an experiment to find out about plants growing - we were very curious and asked lots of questions
Being curious about our locality
We were very curious about the ice
Curious about the snowy, icy tray
Curious about melting ice
All our little people were different, just like us, but they were all lovely, just like us
Thrift class have been talking a lot about our vision and values this term
These are some of our thoughts - this was from one of our Collective Worship stories
Mya used her gifts to help everyone work together when they fell out at playtime
We thought of this when it snowed
Keegan is always kind and helpful which helps our class
We have learnt about the creation which made us think how we should be
We learnt about Martin Luther King in Collective Worship
Our Mums use their gifts to help us
This book was called "one" it is all about standing up for what is right and using our gifts to help everyone get one and work together
