We take pride in the Church status of our school.  You will know from newsletters that we consider the Christian values that underpin our school in Collective Worship.  Please click here for a resource you may like to share with your child that covers this term's work on the value of 'Generosity'.

Pancakes, Lent & Generosity!

We hope you all enjoy your pancakes on Tuesday which heralds the start of the 40 days of Lent. Many people decide to give something up for Lent, but at Bishops Cannings, instead of giving things up, we're going to generously give back to one another.

As we did last year we are going to take the '40 Acts Challenge'. In 2015 over 74,000 people took the 40 Acts challenge creating a wave of over 2.9 million acts of generosity worldwide. Every day the children will be challenged to do an 'act of generosity' e.g. 'Play with a child from another year group, Hold the door open for someone today, Be a kindness ninja (make a card or note saying something nice about a friend or family member and hide it in a place that they will find it).

Please do encourage  your children in this challenge and if you would like to join in with the challenge at home do visit the '40 Acts' website where they have activities for families and a family wall planner for the 40 days of Lent.  http://40acts.org.uk/assets/Downloads/40acts-Family-Wallchart.pdf
