Our Trinity Day of Service in our Community

Tuesday the 30th November was Trinity's Day of Service in the Community.  Each class in the school from Nursery to Year Six thought of a way in which we could serve the people in our local area and in doing so spread a little love and kindness at this important time of year. All sorts of activities were happening from an Advent Tree made by Nursery children and delivered to Beacon View Home for older people to Year Six planting 32 oak trees with the Friends of Tawd Valley in the park orchard. 

 

SUNFLOWER NURSERY

The nursery children wrapped up some small gifts and then hung them on an advent tree.  We wanted to say thank you to the staff at Beacon View residential home.  The children were very excited to be able to deliver it and lots of them told their parents about what we had done.

RECEPTION

Reception chose to serve by spreading their love within our very own school community. Our parents always support our school in everything that we do and we know that the last couple of years have been full of challenges so we decided to make our very own cuddle cones. So the children lovingly made 50 cuddle cones filled with a choice of hot drink, a Kit Kat to encourage them to have a break, a lovely scented tea light to set the mood and of course…. a bucketful of Trinity love and kindness.  We also talked about how it makes you feel to do something kind for others and we decided that doing something kind, not only makes the recipient feel kind but also the person doing the giving.

YEAR ONE

Year One Service Day consisted of going to Kingsbury, one of our neighbouring schools. We delivered Christmas cards and some lovely treats to say thank you to the teachers for looking after our children. Well done Year One for letting your light shine.

YEAR TWO

In Year Two for our Service Day we had a fantastic afternoon tidying up the gardens at the Beacon View Care Home! We took our gardening gloves, litter pickers and bin bags and set about making the outdoor spaces more appealing to residents and visitors! This was very important as the huge winds over the weekend had covered the pathways in leaves and litter. Year Two did a fantastic job tidying it up and making it a beautiful place to stay.

YEAR THREE

We have been busy in Year 3 making bird feeders. We decided as a class we would paint them and then hang them on the trees in the graveyard at St. Paul’s church. What a great service for the community and they look lovely and bright. Year 3 showing the Christian Value of love - just brilliant!

YEAR FOUR

Year 4 made cards for the children in Ormskirk hospital. The card on the front said ‘Here’s a little something to brighten up your day’ and the children wrote their own Get Well messages inside. With the help of his mum for transport, Reuben stepped up to the role of ambassador for Year 4 and delivered the cards along with a box of Heroes. The staff at the Children’s Ward were thrilled and I am sure the children were too when they opened their wonderfully made cards – cards made to spread a little love, joy and happiness from the children of Trinity for our Service Day. 

YEAR FIVE

Year 5 were overjoyed to be able to put some of their new Forest School tools into action today to create some planters as an act of service for members of our community. They each nailed the planks of wood together and then filled the planters with compost and flowers, deciding along the way how the wanted the plants to be arranged. The children also designed Christmas cards to accompany the planters and added messages of kindness and love inside. We then headed out into the local area and visited places to drop the planters that the children had chosen themselves for various reasons. These places were very touched by the gesture from the children and the children themselves saw the importance in what they had done, hoping to be able to do something similar again in the future.

YEAR SIX

On Service Day Year Six assisted Friends of Tawd Valley to help with some essential work in the Community Orchard.  They each planted an Oak Tree, plus various spring flower bulbs and began the building of a 'bug house' which they named Bugingham Palace!
