St Mary’s Church
Berkley Children have two assemblies per week in the church.
These are on a Monday and Friday
They also have special celebratory assemblies in the church.
The children across the school are invited by Miss Pickford to take part in regular Family Services and lead part of the service. This is a fantastic opportunity for their Public Speaking and Presenting skills. The children learn about the bible and share their knowledge with the local congregation.
Mrs Langton works with Our Year 4’s so that they can lead the School’s Harvest Festival and then the whole school decorate the church. By the end of the Year Mrs Langton’s Year 4’s lead their Leavers Service.
Every year Berkley Children take part in a fabulous Easter Service and Christmas Nativity.
The children always enjoy visiting the church and learning more about what you can see in a church. They also use the grounds in their investigative tasks.
