Collective worship is an important part of our school. It is God centred, inclusive and based on our values. Children have the opportunity to take part in Collective Worship every day. Worship can be in classes, Key Stages or whole school. All teachers are involved in leading worship. Our worship usually involves a teaching, prayer and a song. It is often interactive with drama, puppets etc. Every half term year groups lead worship in St Silas Church. Parents are always invited. Friday assembly includes our celebrations. If your child is receiving an award you will be invited via a text message. You are more than welcome to join us for any Collective Worship. If you wish to join us please contact school.
God’s Big Plan
The children had a RE day in June 2019. As part of this day every year group created a piece of art work to illustrate the main ideas in God’s Big Plan. The art work is now displayed in the school hall.
Our Year 4 children have become friends with the Year 4 children who attend Trinity School, Buckshaw Village. Firstly they exchanged letters to get to know each other. Then the children from Trinity visited our school. Our children talked about their Muslim faith and then their children shared about their Christian faith. The children worked together to create some Islamic art and art based on stain glass windows. The links are going to be developed with further visits.
Children in Need-Nightsafe
Our church, St Silas, and Nightsafe, a local charity, were fortunate to be able to work with BBC DIY SOS to convert their church hall into flats for homeless teenagers. As a school we supported the campaign. We provided biscuits for the workers and raised money. Some of our Year 6 children had a sponsored sleep over in church. Every class created a cardboard prayer space for their reflection area to help us to pray and think about people who have no homes.
Pudsey Bear came to school with Rev Sheelagh to say thank you to use for helping the project.
