Collective Worship - Assemblies

Children are spiritual beings who often think deeply and hold serious convictions.

We regard it as a privilege to work with young people to ponder the more profound questions of life and faith. In our school spirituality is seen in joyful singing and dance, and in silent meditation and prayer. As a Church School we seek to nurture in the heart and minds of our children the knowledge and love of God. We provide them with an experience of Christian Community which will influence and shape the rest of their lives.

Assemblies are a high point of the day, expressing our general ethos of mutual respect, laughter and love. Our school motto, "Learn to Live" is taken from Jesus' words; "I have come that you may have life and have it to the full".

Parents do have the right to withdraw their children from religious education lessons and from acts of collective worship should you wish to do this, please contact the Headteacher.

It's a load of rubbish - journeying with St. Paul

This term in our assemblies, we’re learning about the life of the Apostle Paul as he takes the good news of Jesus’ love beyond the confines of Jerusalem out into the rest of the world. Each week, the children will hear tales of shipwreck, imprisonment and persecution as Paul bravely stands up for what he believes in. Running alongside, there is a focus on the natural world with a tree species helping us to make links to the theme each week and Recycle Man helping us to think about our caring for our beautiful planet!

It's A Kinda Magic

During this term's assembly series we will be hearing about the miracles of Jesus. The children will be taking part in retelling these amazing events from so long ago. We will be contrasting God's supernatural power to work miracles with the wonder of science and also enjoying some whizzy conjuring tricks! As the weeks go by we'll also be learning the Lord's Prayer a phrase at a time so that we really understand what Jesus meant when He said "This is how to pray". We hope to learn from Jesus about loving the world, how to show compassion and how to act with justice and mercy.

Moses: "God at Work"

This term our assembly series follows the journey of Moses through the desert. The children will be considering the importance of the Ten Commandments as rules for life as well as the basis for British democracy. We will think about Moses' conversations with God as he led God's people out of captivity and, together with learning some road safety, each week's road sign will be used as a metaphor for living life to the full. Also, our Friday character will ponder whether teaching is the right career choice and contemplate alternative jobs - life boat volunteer, police officer, vicar, fire officer or doctor to name just a few - only to realise that each of us can find our role and vocation that is exactly right for us.
