Welcome to the Worship Page
Usually there would be several whole school assemblies held across the week as part of our Collective Worship. Under the current circumstances, as we are unable to gather together in the hall for assemblies, we are holding them in our classrooms via Zoom. Each week we hold an assembly which has been pre-recorded and sent to us by Reverend Liesbeth Oosterhof, as well as class sharing assemblies, a headteacher's assembly and each class has its own worship assembly.
Under normal circumstances, Reverend Liesbeth Oosterhof and Mrs Rachel Wainwright are regular visitors in school to lead assemblies. The children also visit St. Andrew's Church and the Methodist Chapel throughout the year for Easter, Remembrance and Christmas services. At the end of each academic year we have a service which celebrates those children in Year Six who are moving on to secondary school.
On this page you will find information regarding the themes that we are covering. As well as a broad outline you will also find information regarding the things that you can do with your child and as a family to support your child's learning.
Harvest Festival 2020
Second Half of the Autumn Term 2018
Our theme for this half term is Trust. Trust is a really important value. It must be earned. If we do not trust someone it is very hard to build a good friendship with them.
Please have a look at the information contained below and discuss it and complete the activities with your children.
Second Half of the Autumn Term - Trust
First Half of the Autumn Term 2018
Our theme for the first part of the Autumn Term is Thankfulness. Count your blessings is an old saying, but it reminds us to be thankful and not take things for granted.
As a family you might like to talk about:
Remembering to let other people know when you are thankful.
Not taking things for granted.
Practical ways of showing gratitude.
How it feels when someone thanks you!
Theme for the First Part of the Autumn Term
Second Half of the Summer Term 2018
Our theme for the final term of the academic year is Respect. We will be discussing how important it is to treat others with respect even if we sometimes do not agree with the way they behave or the things that they say. We will also think about how we should treat the things that belong to us and to other people respectfully.
First Half of the Summer Term 2018
Our theme is Friendship. We will be talking about what makes a good friend how finding someone who can be trusted and is loyal, takes a lifetime. We will also discuss how friends come in all shapes and sizes. Some are old , some are young. Some are always there and some we only see occasionally.
Second Half of the Spring Term 2018
Our theme for this half term is Forgiveness. Everyone makes mistakes, its part of being human. Sometimes our mistakes hurt others and then we need to say sorry. Sometimes mistakes made by other people hurt us. When this happens we need to be able to forgive. Forgiveness can be difficult and costly but without it a new start is impossible.
Home School Values: Forgiveness
First Half of the Spring Term 2018
Our theme in assemblies for the first half of the Spring term is courage. We will be discussing how being courageous can mean different things to different people. For example, one person may think it is easy to speak in front of a large audience, whilst another would need to find lots of courage to do this. Everyone faces challenges from time to time, and we have to find courage to overcome them.
Second Half of the Autumn Term 2017
Our theme for the second half of the autumn term is compassion. Compassion is about 'standing in someone else's shoes' when they are having a hard time. In other words, trying to understand how they might be feeling and doing our best to try and help.
Please find below the Home School Values on this theme to help you have discussions with your child about what they are learning.
First Half of the Autumn Term Theme 2017
When we think about generosity we usually think about being generous with money or possessions. However, we can also be generous with our time, our gifts and our abilities. Generous people often say that they receive much more than they give. Perhaps this is because when someone is generous to us, it makes us want to be generous in return.
