Collective Worship

Collective Worship 1

Collective Worship is an important part of our school life; it is at the heart of our school!  We come together each day in many different formats, to think, listen, speak, reflect, sing, laugh, celebrate and wonder at our world. 

 

We enjoy sharing this time with lots of different people too; Reverend Nick (from Holy Trinity Church) leads our Worship each Monday, our teachers take their turn, we also enjoy joining in with 'Open the Book' group and helping to tell stories whilst wearing costumes and using props!

 

Our Church Council are active in and around our Worship times and help to lead various parts as well as planning the ideas and content to fit their chosen themes for each half term.

 

The themes we focus on are based around the Christian Values which we can all relate to, whether we have a faith or not.  Some examples are: love, thankfulness, perseverance, encouragement, forgiveness, trust and many more!

Every couple of months, Michael and Mr Grumpy return to visit us with more tales from the Topsy Turvey Kingdom and some awesome songs that encapture the message we learn about! The children and staff always enjoy these special Collective Worships!

We really enjoy hearing and performing Bible stories with Open the Book in Collective Worship. Can you tell which one this is?

What is our theme this half term?

 

This year, the Derby Diocese has a focal value of 'Community'. Our values this year will take root in this, expanding on themes and ideas that the children and adults in our school family would like to explore in more depth. 

 

Global Community

 

 

  • What connections do we have to other parts of the world?
  • What connections does our church have around the world?
  • How can we be caring local and global citizens?
  • What do we have in common with children in different parts of the world? And what is different in our lives?
  • What work does Christian Aid do?
  • What does Jesus and the Bible say about kinship and community?

We started to look st our school aims, visions and values during Collective Worship today and thinking about what they mean to us. We shared thoughts and ideas and began to make some changes!
