Collective Worship

Harvest Assembly

Year 5 presented a lovely assembly about Harvest. The children thought about how lucky they are to have such a wide variety of different foods to choose from and how important it is to thank God for his love. They told the story of the rich man and Lazarus and explained that we must share what we have with people in need. All the food donated by year 5 will be delivered to Joe’s place in Gateshead and used to provide meals for the homeless.

 

Beginnings Liturgy

Beginnings Liturgy

To end our unit of work on ‘beginnings’, Year 2 planned and led their own beginnings liturgy.

The children thought carefully about the beginnings they have made so far, but especially thought about beginning Year 2. The children know that God is with them at every beginning and reflected on this when they read Psalm 139. The children asked God to help and guide them throughout the school year. The children made some promises about what they’d like to achieve in this school year and hung them on our beginnings tree.

 

Morning Prayer

Morning Prayer

In collective worship the children have written their own ‘morning prayers’. The children know that God is with them at every beginning including the beginning of a new day. The children thanked God in their prayers for each new day and asked God for help, strength and encouragement throughout the day. We have listened to a selection of morning prayers throughout the week in collective worship.

 

Shared liturgy of God’s love

Year 5 took part in a beautiful liturgy on Friday. We were invited by Reception class to join them as they celebrated God’s love. We prepared our own prayers and offered these in a moment of quiet and reflection. The Reception children also shared their love with Year 5. It was a wonderful and reflective way to end our school week. Thank you Reception class.
