Collective Worship at Holy Family

Year 6 Collective Worship 

Two of our wonderful Year 6 pupils led a collective worship with the focus on kindness as this week is Anti-bullying week. They confidently delivered this to our class and even included a role play. 

Year 6 Collective Worship 

Our first child led collective worship and what a lovely treat! We stepped outside to worship together in our school prayer garden. Well done to our two class members that delivered a beautiful service.

Year 4 Collective Worship

This week Year 4 did a Lectio Divina on Matthew 21:28-31 focusing on choices. The children reflected on what choices they make and how Christ's example helps us to make the right choices.

Year 3 Collective Worship

This week, Year 3 looked at the importance of family in our lives. This included our family, our school family, and our church family. The children reflected on God's love for everyone in the world.

Year 6 Collective Worship

This week's theme was friends and family. As a class, we reflected on the important personal qualities we might need to build and encourage friendships such as, patience and compassion. 

EYFS Collective Worship

The children in EYFS have been listening to their favorite hymns. They picked apart the words they were singing about. Nursery listen to "He's got the whole world in his hand" and drew pictures of the important things in their life. The Reception children listened to "If I were a butterfly" they had a discussion about thanking God for making them special and saying thank you for something specific about themselves.

Year 6 Collective Worship

 

Year 1 Collective Worship

 

 This week, some children in Year 1 planned their own collective worship, using our Welcome, Word and Witness bags in our classroom. The children really enjoyed planning the worship session themselves. 

Year 6 Collective Worship

Year 6 pupils led a lovely collective worship. It's wonderful to see children taking responsibility for planning and delivering class worship to their peers.

EYFS Collective Worship

The children in Nursery all listened to a prayer and closed their eyes whilst holding a heart. They could pray to themselves in their head or listen to the word. the children then gave their heart to someone they loved.

Year 6 Collective Worship

We listened to the story of the wise men arriving to worship and deliver gifts to the baby Jesus. We discussed what it means to give and receive of gifts. We reflected on both physical gifts and the personal gifts of Jesus' teachings, knowing how to acknowledge when we are close to following the wrong path and how we could seek His help. 

Year 4 Collective Worship

Today we looked at the importance of showing love and friendship towards others. We talked about how Jesus would want us to live and what we should do in order to follow His wish. We identified our talents and gifts that we have been given and made a promise to share these with others.

Year 6 held a lovely Collective Worship this week reflecting on friendships.

We listened and discussed scripture taken from the Old Testament about the friendship between David and Jonathan. This opportunity gave us time time to reflect on our own friendships and how grateful for them we are.

Year 3 Collective Worship

Year 3 listened to the story of Jesus' baptism, and reflected on the importance of entering God's family. 

Year 2 Collective Worship

Year 2 Collective Worship

Here is a small selection of some of the Collective Worship that we have been doing. We did a Lectio Divina about Epiphany, the Barbarians table led a Child Collective Worship session and we did a meditation all around Epiphany.

Year 1 Collective Worship

This week Year  1's collective worship is based on the Epiphany. We discussed how everyone has different gifts and then wrote what we thought our best gift is in a star to go into our floor book.

Mary's Birthday

Today some classes went into the garden for some special time with Mary as it was her birthday this week (8th September).

We talked about how she was a special lady who was chosen by God to become the Mother of Jesus and thought about reasons as to why Mary was the ‘chosen one’.

We discussed the prayer the Hail Mary and figured out that it was split into two parts – the first part was praising Mary and the second was asking her to pray for us to ensure that we do the right thing.

We then said a quiet prayer to Mary and tied a ribbon to brighten up her garden. We wrote down some gifts that we would like to give to Mary.
