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.
‘No matter what religion we are, we are all part of God’s world. We must remember this and always make the right choices. God wants us to love one another. Think about this every day. One of our shared values is peace. We all want our world to be peaceful. ‘ Ali Year 6
Reverend Sheelagh joined us for a prayer day where we explored different ways in which we can pray. Each class participated in a range of prayer activities. To pray for forgiveness, each child wrote on a piece of paper something that they were sorry for and shredded the paper into the bin whilst asking God for forgiveness. The children learnt that we are all part of God’s family. They wrote prayers to thank God for people who have a positive impact on their lives and tied these to prayer trees. We created Promises Boxes using quotes from Holy Books. The children will be able to use these during times of reflection by taking a paper out of the box and reading and reflect on the message it is giving. The children researched global issues by reading newspaper articles. They wrote global prayers and added them to out World Map. We prayed for people living in poverty and made donations to the UNICEF charity.
