This week, the children have been looking into the School Vision and what East Hoathly’s different values are. Each value has a bible story link. Each class had a value to focus on and create work for.

Reception focused on RESPECT. The children discussed what it meant to show respect to others; by being kind and listening. The children then acted out the ‘Good Samaritan.’

Year 1 and 2’s value to focus on was ENJOYMENT, which linked to the ‘Story of Noah’. The children discussed how the value of enjoyment was present in the story. Stan said “Noah had enjoyment because he survived the flood.”  The children created collages of the animals that went onto Noah’s Arc.

Year 3 and 4 looked into the value of WORKING TOGETHER by reading the story of    Jesus and his disciples going fishing. Abbie in Year 4 said “We acted the story out and we showed working together by helping to get the nets back to shore.”

Year 5 and 6 found the values of EXCELLENCE and RESILIENCE in two stories.

In the ‘Parable of the Two Builders’, Ethan in Year 6 found the value of EXCELLENCE, which Teddy in Year 6 describes as “listening to God’s word”. Ethan’s character in the scene was the builder who’s house fell down during the storm. “My house fell down        because I didn’t listen to God’s word or his advice.”

In the story of ‘Rebuilding Jerusalem’, George in Year 6 was able to see the value of      RESILIENCE. “We acted out the story of Jerusalem’s wall and I was Nehemiah. We had to build a wall, which was really hard because there were people trying to stop us and the wall kept falling down. We kept going until it was built but it took a long time.”

The RE Council also worked together to find the value of CREATIVITY in the ‘Story of Creation’. Archie in Year 6 said “God showed creativity by perfectly creating the world we live in.”
