Harvest Collective Worship

Harvest Collective Worship

Year 2 planned a harvest collective worship in our school chapel. They created the focal point with autumn colours. An autumn prayer was read as the children placed a leaf around the focal point. They thanked God for people who work with food; farmers, factory workers and cooks .

The children sang Autumn Days …

London Map 1666

London Map 1666

Year 2 have studied a map of London from 1666 in history. The children were able to use the map to identify many features; River Thames, Pudding Lane, Samuel Pepys home, the area destroyed by the fire, the narrow streets and the houses very close together.

Habitat Hunt

Habitat Hunt

Year 2 loved hunting for habitats in our school garden. The children know a habitat is a home for a living organism. It provides the organism with the food, water, air, space, shelter, protection and the warmth that it needs to survive.

 

Creation

Creation

Year 2 planned a Creation collective worship. They gathered in the Gospel Garden and chose ’The Creation Story’ as their Scripture reading. They wrote thank you prayers and placed these around the garden. The children thought how they can show care and love for God’s creation.

 

Mary our Mother

Mary our Mother

Year 2 planned Collective Worship about Mary, our Mother. They thought what a special lady Mary was. They listened to the story when Mary discovered she was going to have God’s son Jesus and placed their Rosary bracelets around the focal point, saying their message to Mary.
