Pupils wel­come Bishop to their school

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - YOUR NEWS -

Pupils and staff of South View School, Crow­land, took great plea­sure in wel­com­ing the Bishop of Lin­coln, the Right Reverand Christo­pher Lowsen, his Chap­lain Reverend Jayson Rhodes and the Reverend Charles Brown of Crow­land, back to their school.

Af­ter a suc­cess­ful visit from Bishop Christo­pher in De­cem­ber 2017, the chil­dren were keen to show him how they have pro­gressed over the year, as well as cel­e­brat­ing the launch of the new Lin­colnshire Agreed Syl­labus for Re­li­gious Ed­u­ca­tion at South View Pri­mary School.

Six stu­dent rep­re­sen­ta­tives from across both key stages, with the school’s RE co­or­di­na­tor, Miss Han­nah Brunt, es­corted Bishop Christo­pher and Rev­erends Jayson and Charles into each class. In Years 1, 2 and 6, the chil­dren were fol­low­ing the ‘Un­der­stand­ing Chris­tian­ity’ pro­gramme and had been ask­ing ques­tions along the lines of “Who is God?” and “What form, or forms, do we rep­re­sent God as?”

In Years 3, 4 and 5, the chil­dren had, the pre­vi­ous week, ex­pe­ri­enced In­dian Cul­ture work­shop days with Su­nita Pa­tel of the In­dian Ex­pe­ri­ence, as part of this term’s topic about Hin­duism. The chil­dren were able to share their ex­pe­ri­ences of the day. Bishop Christo­pher also had a glimpse of Years 2 and 5 pre­par­ing for the Har­vest Fes­ti­val at the end of term.
