Collective Worship

Year 1 Collective Worship – Month of Mary

Today in Year 1’s collective worship we celebrated May the month of Mary. We designed a focal point to be used as an altar to Mary for the month of May. The children planned their own parts and readings in this collective worship. We crowned Mary with flowers and laid flowers at her feet. We all held rosary beads and repeated the Hail Mary prayer. We then sang a song to celebrate Mary.

The road to Emmaus

The road to Emmaus

Today Year 2 thought about the disciples meeting Jesus on the road to Emmaus. They were surprised that they didn’t recognise Jesus at first. The children thought about what they would say if they were to meet Jesus. many children would thank Jesus.

Jesus Through our Eyes

Jesus Through our Eyes

All throughout this week Year 5 have taken time each morning to reflect on how we see Jesus in everyday life. We concluded the week with a Collective Worship thinking again about Jesus through our eyes. We talked about helping others, being kind and the beautiful world God has created for us.

Jesus is Risen!

Jesus is Risen!

Year 2 celebrated the risen Christ. They thought how Jesus’ resurrection is similar to the sun rising. It spreads light and warmth each day just as Jesus does in our lives. The children thought how they too can help to spread Jesus’ light each day.

Holy Week Liturgy

On Holy Thursday, the last day of term, each class in KS2 gathered  to reflect on the symbols of Holy Week and to think about how to follow Jesus’ example of love and self-giving.  A central focal point was created in our chapel in the grounds.   Although the key stage were not able to come together for the liturgy it meant they could all visit the chapel as a class and reflect on the focal point created together.  The younger children were also able to come and reflect on the symbols of Jesus’ passion.
