On the day of the autumnal equinox 2015, Reverend Mike Morris visited the pupils at The Grove to share his insight into Christianity.
Spruce and Juniper participated to a lecture on 'Jesus', his life and his contribution to Christianity. There was ample opportunity for interaction and questioning and the children showed great interest.
Foundation Stage and Pre-Prep enjoyed the story of The Creation unfolding before their very eyes, using Art and Drama to support their learning experience, thanks to Reverend Mike's natural ability to bring the Bible to life.
Yew and Aspen examined an ancient copy of the Holy Bible, dated 1852 CE, which is normally kept at St Mary's Church in Loughton. Reverend Mike encouraged all pupils to view the old pages and scriptures giving also an insight into the history of our local church as well as widening their knowledge of Bible stories.
We are very grateful for this learning opportunity which has added great value to the teaching and learning taking place in our school, under the subject of Religious Education.
