Collective Worship

Saying Sorry

Saying Sorry

This week Year 2 have planned and led their own collective worship with the theme ‘saying sorry’. The children thought about times they have sinned. They thought about sins that they ‘think’, ‘say’ and do.

The children were invited to drop a pebble into some water, as they did this they said sorry to God.

Mini-beast Collective Worship in Nursery!

Today in Collective worship we thanked God for all the mini-beasts we have in the world. We drew a picture of our favourite mini-beast to put on our focal point.

We set up our focal area with the bible, the cross, our candle, pictures of the butterfly life-cycle and our very own live caterpillars!

One by one we went up and placed our picture on the focal point and thanked God for our favourite mini-beast.

We then thanked God by saying a prayer;

“Lord God, Thank you for the shiny beetles, squirmy worms and slimy slugs. Amen.”

We then blew our candle and watched the smoke go up to heaven.

 

Pentecost Parade!

On Monday afternoon, the whole school took part in a special liturgy to celebrate the Feast of Pentecost. Everyone assembled in the hall  to hear the story of Pentecost and to think about the Fruits of the Holy Spirit (Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Generosity, Gentleness, Faithfulness and Self-control) and how we use those gifts for the good of others. After that the children processed out to the field waving or wearing their flames and streamers which they had made in class to represent the power of the Holy Spirit. The liturgy continued outside with prayer and ended with a hymn.

 

Transformed – Collective Worship

As our ‘Transformed’ RE topic came to an end, Year 5 celebrated this with a collective worship in the school chapel. This was a special time for us to reflect on all of those important people who have been called by the Holy Spirit but also for us to share with one another how the Holy Spirit helps to transform our lives.
