Good Morning Brown Clee!
I hope that everyone has had an enjoyable and restful weekend – unfortunately we are temporarily back in bubbles again for a short time – but school life goes on as normal (or as normal as possible!) and even though we aren’t together in the hall we are still very much together in spirit – something to be thankful for!
Our Christian value this half term is Thankfulness…a word which can mean different things. As we go through the term we will reflect and think on the different aspects of Thankfulness. There are other words that can mean the same as Thankfulness – Gratitude, Appreciation, Gratefulness, Thanks…..and we regularly say the words “Thank You” throughout the day to show our Thankfulness.
Let’s see what the Bible tells us about Thankfulness and have a think about what we can learn from this very special book…
What did you learn about Thankfulness from watching this video? What was Jesus thankful for? What did it make you think about? The last line comes from the Book of Thessalonians and says ““In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” – which is an important message for us all – that we should be thankful for everything (even when things are tough!) as that is God’s will.
So as we go through the next 7 weeks, have a think about what you are thankful for….at home and at school. The past 2 years have been particularly challenging – but there are always so many things that we should appreciate and be thankful for…..
We also have something else to be very thankful for – our Dragonfly and Scorpion timestable knowledge – as for the 3rd year in a row they have won an award! They came first in the national timestable competition again this year – so well done and thank you for your hard work, determination and team-spirit!
Prayer of the Day
We thank you for all that’s good in our lives.
We thank you especially for what we remember quietly in our hearts now . . . (silence)
Help us always to be thankful, whether we are happy or sad.
Help us to know that you are with us during ordinary days, good days and bad days.
