In class worship today, the children gathered whilst singing ‘The Servant King.’ They placed both hands together like a bowl where they placed a sad or scary memory. They then blew on their hands to blow the memory away. They listened to the Word based on Luke 24:13-35 led by Ellenor, Grace and Millie. Going forth, the children decided they would take a few moments during the day to say a quiet prayer.
This week’s liturgy was planned, prepared and presented by Sam, Jak and Lexie.
We gathered in a circle and sang ‘Gather’. The Gospel reading came from the Gospel according to St Luke. The children then passed the bible and a cross around the circle. As they each held the bible or the cross they said a prayer of thanks or a prayer to show love towards others.
It was a beautiful, peaceful liturgy. We ended by creating a cross with our bodies.
Thank you Sam, Jak and Lexie.
Today the children gathered for their worship led by Jack, Jake, Jasmine and Harvey. The children spent some time gathering themselves to be in the presence of God and then listened carefully to the Word. The children listened as they reflected on how they are God’s people who he loves and never abandons. We are going to be examples of Jesus. Another lovely and reflective worship in Year 6.
Amelia, Thomas, Kailym and Zara led us into prayer today. We made a promise to God and painted our hand print, sticking our hand down on the paper while making our promise.
To mark Remembrance Day we made our own poppies. We wrote prayers of thanks to everyone who has made the sacrifice of keeping all of us safe.
We then made a display of our poppies.
Lest we Forget!
Today, everybody worked with More Than Dance to combine music and actions within a liturgy perform to the rest of the school to share a message about love and how to share God’s love.
We started by looking at objects and how in everyday life these would contribute to God’s love. Everyone worked with a partner who they wouldn’t usually work with to share their love with somebody other than their best friend.
At the end of the day, we shared our liturgy with the rest of school.
Yesterday we recapped Shabbat and what Jewish families do in preparation for the celebration and rest day on a Saturday. One thing we remembered is that Jewish families have a special bread called Challah Bread. Working as a team, we made some Challah bread in our class. Today, we got the chance to taste it and eat it if we really enjoyed it.
Today we gathered for our worship led by Dylan, Jake, Autumn and Ruby. We thought carefully about how we should not store up our riches. It was lovely to sing and praise God for how glorious he is. We will treasure what is in our hearts more than the riches we may find.
Reception have been learning all about Baptism. Thanks to Fr Saji, last Monday we had the opportunity to visit church and Father Saji spoke to the children about what happens during a Baptism Ceremony, re-enacting a Baptism with the children. We all had a lovely time.
The children planned and led a lovely liturgy this week, with more children leading us into worship and trying so hard to read the Word of God from the Bible. Children were very supportive of each other and helping others to read some difficult words.
