School webteam: May 2015
This week we were pleased to welcome the Art and Soul Man into school. The artist, Chris Gilbert worked with Key Stage 2 on a project called 'Let your light shine.' The children were inspired by his wonderful assembly learning how to use symbols to represent ideas, feelings and beliefs. He talked about light as a symbol for Christians and referred to Bible references to explain the importance of light.
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."
1 John 1:5
This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.
"You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.
At Audlem St James Primary we believe that a School is not the bricks it is made from but the people inside it and so each of us should have a chance to shine.
This is the starting point of the project, we look forward to sharing the completed project with you soon.
