Collective Worship is held daily. We start by opening the worship box and taking out its contents: the Bible representing God the Father, the cross representing God's son,Jesus and the candle representing the Holy Spirit. Monday to Thursday, we listen to stories from the Bible, reflect on our value of the moment and finish with a hymn and a prayer. On Friday, we have a Celebration Assembly where we celebrate a child from each year group who has demonstrated the qualities of our value. We also celebrate achievements both inside and outside of school. Each term on a Wednesday, a different class leads Collective Worship. The children in the class plan, organise and deliver the assembly.
Once a month, the ladies and gentlemen from 'Open the Book' and Anne-Marie & Sally from ICE lead Collective Worship. Reverend Lane also comes in frequently with his wife Catherine to lead worship.
ICE April 2018
Anne-Marie and Sally, through the story of Joseph, led a Collective Worship on encouraging others and being thankful. They started with a game which demonstrated 'boastfulness' followed by a dramatisation of the first part of the story. Lots of children volunteered for the role of Joseph and his brothers.
Anne-Marie and Sally from ICE set up prayer spaces with the children from KS2. Each station had a very special meaning.
Whilst waiting for the arrival of the special gift, some children didn’t hear a thing, some were too busy wrapping presents and didn’t notice, and some were busy decorating the Christmas tree and didn’t hear, however, one child was waiting patiently and reflecting on the joy to come – she did hear the announcement.
