Children in Need Collective Worship

Following Children in Need last week, Year 2 decided to plan a special collective worship to think about children in need in our country and around the world. They thought about children who are sick, homeless, don’t have their parents, don’t have nice toys to play with, don’t get food to eat each day and don’t have nice clothes to wear.

The children began by writing their own prayer of thanks to God for things they have. They then brought this to the circle and placed it on the heart as part of the response to the Word.

Remembrance

In Nursery we have been remembering the soldiers who died in the war. we have learnt that every year around the 11th November people buy and wear poppies. We know that the money from the poppies goes to soldiers and their families to help them. We made our own poppies in class and took them to the whole school remembrance liturgy. We had our own class collective worship to remember.

  

Signs and Symbols Collective Worship

Signs and Symbols Collective Worship

This week the children planned and led their own collective worship about Signs and Symbols.

The children decided that we needed to have a white focal point to symbolise the white garment that the baby wears at a Baptism service. The children began by entering the room and blessing themselves with holy water – showing that they are ready to start to pray with Jesus.

The scripture passage the children chose was ‘John the Baptist baptises Jesus’. The children understood that in the the story we heard that people who were baptised became followers of God and their sins were forgiven. The children know that when a baby is baptised the are pure and clean – their sins are also forgiven.

In response to the reading the children therefore placed a pebble into the holy water and asked God to forgive them for something they have done wrong.

They ended the worship by singing ‘Share the light’

As part of our Remembrance Liturgy on Friday afternoon, we released red balloons to mark 100 years since the end of World War I. Not only did we remember the soldiers who have lost their lives fighting for our country but we celebrated everything they achieved for us.

This also marked the launch of our Erasmus project ‘Fly high in Europe’.
