Youth Friday Collective Worship

Youth Friday Collective Worship

On Friday, the children from Reception and Year 4 gathered outdoors in the Gospel Garden to celebrate Youth Friday together. The theme of this year’s Youth Friday was ‘Together’. The children thought about lockdown, when we weren’t able to be together and the joy of being reunited. We have thought about how we keep in touch with our friends and family who we do not get to see. One way of being ‘together’ is when we pray. On Friday afternoons we gather as a school, in our bubbles, during Collective Worship time. We listened to a reading from the Book of Sirach that reminded us that our friends are special treasures. The children in year 4 prepared prayers for our Collective Worship. All of the children created their own rainbow to add to the focal point, This week we will all take a rainbow home to remind us that we can always be together in prayer and when listening to the word of God.

Year 1 – Remembrance Day

In Year 1 today we talked about what ‘Remembrance’ means. How the brave people risked their lives to make our lives better. We had a collective worship outside with Nursery and Reception. In class we made biscuit poppies. We followed the instructions very carefully! We loved making them and enjoyed eating the leftover chocolate buttons!




Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day

The Nursery, Reception and Year 1 children gathered today for collective worship and to observe the 2 minute silence to honour all of those who have bravely risked their lives to make our lives better. We listened to the bugle play to mark the beginning and end of our 2 minute silence. All of the children spent time making poppies in their classes to help them remember the importance of this day.

The Reception children processed to the church graveyard to visit the grave of a local soldier. The children left their poppies in honour of him. We ended by saying a quiet prayer together.
