Ripon Cathedral School Update

Exploring in the woods
Year 1 Welcome Worship
Grazes heal, scars outside disappear,
Soreness and bruises fade away.
In hours, days or even weeks
New skin grows so that
No one knows where the hurt has been.
Hurt feelings, scars inside unseen,
The hurt remains and even grows
For hours, days, weeks and maybe years.
It hides in us, locked in a secret place
To which we only have the key.
They also learnt a song about looking after yourself called "123 it's good to be me".
As always the children were fantastic and it was lovely to welcome all the parents and carers to share this with us.
Another great reading area
