“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches” Matthew (13:31-32).
We embrace the profound metaphor of the mustard seed which symbolises the potential within each of our children. Just as the smallest seed grows into a mighty tree, we believe in nurturing and supporting aspirations within all our pupils, fostering an environment where their dreams can flourish, creating spaces for them to soar and inspire others, like birds finding refuge in the branches. Aspiration is the catalyst for their growth, mirroring the transformative journey from seed to tree!
In November 2023, members of the Littleham church team, including Reverend Steve, spoke to the children about the parables and how they link to our daily lives.
Every child in the school produced handprints which were then displayed as wings! They symbolise where our aspirations can take us! During our vision week in November, each class focused upon a particular parable value. The artwork and displayed work that you can see on this page are the outcomes from it.
We believe that if you demonstrate our Littleham ABCs, your wings will take you to amazing places!
