December 20th Christmas Carol Service
Our traditional service was held at St James Church, Louth. It involved readings by the children and a tableau of the Nativity Story created by actors from across the school. We also sang a range of traditional and modern carols and listened to prayers led by Reverend Chris Hawkins.
Christingle Assembly-Monday 19th December
This morning, the whole school attended our very own Christingle celebration. The children learned about the meaning behind this religious object and were able to reflect on this, while several candles were lit around the hall.
Wednesday 30th November
Year 2 and Reception had a special visitor to see them. Mr Griffiths came to talk to the children about celebrating Hanukkah. The children asked lots of questions and even sang a song in Hebrew. Thank you Mr Griffiths for passing on your knowledge and giving up your time.
The whole school attended Kidgate’s first Remembrance Service in the main school hall today. A number of our staff team shared readings including ‘Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep’ and ‘In Flanders Fields’. We then listened to a rendition of ‘The Last Post’ before participating in a two-minute’s silence. The children observed this impeccably and were a credit to their parents, the school and the wider community. On Monday 14th November, Mr Lidbury was joined by Isobel and Zac from Year 6, to visit the Louth War Memorial, laying Kidgate's Poppy wreath at the base of the memorial.
On Thursday 20th October we held our annual Harvest Festival in the School Hall. Our Guest was Reverend Chris who enjoyed seeing the children perform Harvest Songs and presenting an assembly all about the meaning of Harvest. The whole school donated food to the Community Larder appeal which was gratefully received by Reverend Chris.
On the 3rd October 2016 our school enjoyed a visit from Sunita Patel. She held an assembly all about Diwali for Key Stage 1 and undertook a fabulous workshop with Year 4 which included Indian Dancing and discussions about India and its culture.
Reverend Chris visited school today to share the Easter Story with us. We all enjoyed listening to this special story and thinking of the miracle of new life at this time of year.
Community Larder Visitor.
Our Key Stage 2 children had a visit from a Community Larder Representative who explained what the Community Larder was and how our contributions from our Harvest Festival had helped people in Louth and the surrounding areas.
