Ann Cam and St Mary's Church
Here we will post information about links between St Mary's church and Ann Cam pupils.
Ann Cam had a special visitor of 'Ramsey' the life-size sheep for a few weeks as part of the Good Shepherd Project alongside 117 other Church of England schools.
This is what the website says about the scheme:
Each school has been asked to decorate the sheep in an individual way, using its logo, a distinctively Christian vision statement or another piece of artwork inspired by this project. As well as this, each school will be asked to fill in a diary entry of how the sheep has been involved in the school and parish life and include photos or samples of inspired school-work.
The Good Shepherd Project aims to support schools to recognise and celebrate that they are part of the Diocese of Gloucester family. It is a deanery based project, with one sheep going around the schools in each deanery.
Below are some photos of what Ramsey got up to whilst he was with us at Ann Cam:

St Mary's Church Armistice Service
Ann Cam pupils worked incredibly hard all week creating things that could commemorate the end of the First World War. These were then displayed in St. Mary's Church for the remembrance service where over 250 people attended across the whole day - what a fantastic way to remember our fallen soldiers.
For the service the pupils for Ann Cam created a number of different things. We had felted poppies and poppy plates in Class One, felted poppies and silhouettes in Class 2, stained glass windows in Class 3 and a World War One quilt (put together by the very talented Mrs Mattos) in Class 4.
Below are photos of the things we made:
