Here are a few pictures of our classroom environment...

Religious Education
We are a Church of England school and this is a big part of our curriculum. A St James' child values the fruits of the spirit in everything they do.


The fruits of the spirit are;

Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness & Self-control


How do you show the fruits of the spirit?
