FRONT PAGE First Communion At St Mary Magdalene, on Pentecost Sunday- known to some of you as Whit Sunday- the day on which the whole Church celebrates the coming of the Holy Spirit to the Apostles at Jerusalem (Acts 2), we had the great privilege of welcoming seven children of our congregation into the full worshiping life of the church, as, after careful preparation, they received for the first time the sacrament of Holy Communion. One or two members of the congregation confessed that they were moved to tears at the sight of these young people knowing Christ’s presence in the bread and wine. We take the spirituality of our children very seriously- and, in our life together, as with all Christian relationships, we adults believe that, in nurturing them, we receive as much, or more, than we give. Of course, it is true that the Lord may make himself known to us at any stage of our lives: in fact, I celebrated the 20th anniversary of my own baptism on the same Sunday- so, clearly I was not a child when I became a Christian. I might add, though, that as a child I had assumed that I was a Christian, believing, as I did, in Christ- it was only later that my simple faith eroded, retuning powerfully and unexpectedly in later years. It gives me great joy to say that we are also presently preparing a number of adults for Confirmation and Communion. It is a very beautiful thing to see people coming alive in the reality of God. If you feel that you would like to explore any spiritual question, perhaps simply to get a sense of what or how much you believe, then please contact me. As your parish priest, that is what I am here for (You wondered, didn’t you?). With much love and prayers for a peaceful summer Fr Keith keithdlj@aol.com 3

This should go through the door at “Badgers” in The Street, marked clearly Margaret Burgess, donation. The money will go towards flowers for that weekend.

BOLNEY C.E.P. SCHOOL Church Lane, Bolney, Haywards Heath, West Sussex RH17 5QP Tel: 01444-881352 Fax: 01444-881047 E-mail: head@bolneyprimary.school ! Web: http://bolneyschool.org.uk Headteacher Mrs.Lorraine Kenny Silver Birch Science Fair Silver Birch class (Year 5 and 6 children) have entered a science competition in Haywards Heath for schools in Mid Sussex. The theme of the competition is volcanoes. Each school entering has to make a volcano that can explode repeatedly using an area of science. First of all we all researched volcanoes so we could accurately explain how a volcano explodes. For the project we are partnered with American Express who sent an expert in computer science to visit our class and help us with the project. He showed us how to use something called a micro:bit, created by the BBC, as an easy way for children to program. A micro:bit is a codable computer that has an array of LED lights that can be programmed to write messages and draw shapes. An easy way to do this is to plug it into a computer and use the micro:bit website to program it. We split into groups of three and every group received a booklet that contained all the instructions. By following the instructions, and using JavaScript, we were able to make the micro:bit smile, frown, say ‘hello world’, count down from nine and roll a dice. To create our exploding volcano, we are going to use a lot of micro:bits to make noises and activate fans that will blow streamers out of a volcano model that we have made out of modroc. During the project we have learnt a lot about volcanoes and programming. Six of us have been chosen to attend the science fair and display the volcano model and the information pages about volcanoes that all of us have made. As well as this, they will present a video that they have filmed to explain what we did. To finish they will be demonstrating our exploding volcano. They will be doing this several times to prove it is repeatable to a panel of judges. We are all very excited! By Connie and Eleanor, Bolney CEP School Reporters. 11
