‘I am Human’ Multi Faith Assembly


Our recent assembly by the Northamptonshire Inter Faith Forum left a huge impression on staff and children alike. Representatives from the Muslim, Baha’i and Christian faiths spoke to all the children about their beliefs and the things that unite them rather than divide. They also recognised that many people may not have a faith but that, ultimately, we are all the same. A short film produced by children of different religions was also shown demonstrating how, despite their different faiths and practises they are all essentially just children who enjoy the same things. The assembly will now be followed up by an art competition entitled ‘I am Human’. All the children will be drawing pictures about what it means to be human which will be displayed along with work form other schools in Wellingborough. The children thoroughly enjoyed both the assembly and the subsequent drawing! This was such an important message for us all and a perfect example of how we all might live constructively and collaboratively. We are very gratefully to our visitors and are looking forward to seeing them again and promoting their wonderful message.



The term is flying by quicker than ever and we are as busy as ever! We are very much looking forward to the year three and four residential at the end of this term. Thank you to all the parents who came to the information evening last week. If you missed it, please do not worry; you should, by now, have received an email with the Power Point from the evening, a consent form and a kit list.


Many thanks to all of you who helped your children look amazing on World Book Day! We had a great day using Maths story books as our focus. The book swap was very popular and it was lovely to see so many of you come and share a book with your child in the morning. Take a look at some of the amazing photographs….


This week we will be visited by the Book Bus, a new venture. If you can support us by buying a book that would be great but if not please do not worry. FOYs will be holding a book sale later in the year where the many books you have kindly donated will be sold.
