There are two parts to this part of the school website. The first part provides access to the school's current worship themes and the second part provides parents with external links to support the Christian life of the school.
The current school worship is uploaded as either MP4, PowerPoint Shows or PDFs. These formats should enable families to view or upload the worship activities in one of three formats. In all cases, worship is best viewed together as each story has questions for reflection. These reflections can be as simple as recalling the story to discussing what messages the story might contain.
Our suggestion in how families might approach school worship is to spread these out over the week. They are also designed to be something that a family might share and discuss. As a school we normally start the day with a worship activity but this is not a requirement. We just feel it sets the scene for the day and provides a regular routine.
A suggest weekly routine to worship might be as follows:
Monday: The Main School Worship (see below)
Tuesday: Your child's class RE or main school worship follow up (see below or your child's class page)
Wednesday: Your child's class RE or main school worship follow up (see below or your child's class page)
Thursday: Liturgy / Gospel Worship (see ongoing Worship Support)
Friday: Whole School Celebration
Whole School Worship
(Week beginning 29th June)
This week our whole school worship reflects on how our lives are guided by the teaching of Jesus. The worship also challenges us to think how much of this teaching has really taken root in our hearts. We also reflect on St Paul's conversion and the courage he showed to take the word of God to the World in the early days of the Church.
For all worship reflection we have a focus on the Parable of the Sower
Matthew 13: 1-9
Mark 4: 1-20
Luke 8: 4-15
Whole School Worship Reflection
There is one reflection linked to this week's worship. The challenge in this reflection for both Key Stage 1 and 2 is to consider how the teaching of Jesus are embedded in the things we think, say and do.
