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 20th July)
This is the last whole school worship of the current academic year. We continue to exploring last week's Bible passage from Joshua ans also add a passage from Jeremiah 29:10-11
This passage is particularly relevant as many children will be either preparing to move school or to change class. It is also relevant at the moment as the lock-down changes.
In this week's whole school worship I use the story "The Bear and the Piano" by David Litchfield to illustrate the above passages.
End of Year Awards
Having missed our Term 3 and 4 awards we moved straight on to our end of year awards. As with all things we held this worship remotely and recorded this live in school as Zoomed worship. Our congratulations to all award winners. You should either have these already or have these in the post to you.
