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 week, 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! It's always great fun when Mr Tinker comes in too!
**Update during COVID-19** - We are still joining together with our daily Collective Worship but are doing this through the wonders of technology! We are using Google Meet or Microsoft Teams to join together and explore. Our 'visitors' are virtual too - Rev Nick and Michael Tinker both join us regularly to lead our Worship time. Each class remain in their separate 'bubble' and Mrs Swain leads from her office, with a new background to keep the children guessing what it will be next!
Our Church Council are very 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 in our lives, whether we have a faith or not. We want our children to have these values for life and to reflect on them in any given situation.
What is our theme this half term?
Our final half term of the school year has already arrived! We talked about what would be important as we think about the changes that are to happen soon; year 6 moving in to bigger places; year 2 becoming Juniors; new reception children beginning their visits to our school and maybe a new teacher for some too! We therefore, though the focus for this half term should be....FRIENDSHIP!
What is friendship all about?
July 2016 - After a year of our new style Collective Worship, we have been seeking thoughts from the children on our next steps. Take a look at us busily working together and discussing our ideas in our family groups.
