Thank you to Year 3 for leading the All Saints Day Celebration of the Word
Fr Shaun came to see us and read us a story all about Jesus. We will miss him when he moves to his new parish in Berwick.
We talked about our names and matched them up to our pictures. We learnt that we have a first name and a family name.
We then choose one of our friends names and gave thanks to God for them.
We have been writing our own names.
We listened to a reading about feeling safe and snug. We made our babies feel safe and snug.
In our collective worship, we gathered around our special area and shared our hearts. We had wrote on these our names and drew a picture to show God loves us. We looked at our names and wondered about them. Then we put them into our prayer basket while we listened to, ‘I have called you by your name.’
To respond to our collective worship, we wrote and decorated our names and drew our faces to show how we feel when we hear them
In the Catholic Church, October is the month dedicated to the Holy Rosary. We are keen for our children to take part in this important devotion and, as a school, we are taking part in the Rosary Challenge. In Key Stage Two, every class will be praying a decade of the Rosary each day, and learning about one of the Mysteries of the Rosary each time. This will be a wonderful way for our children to develop their experience of different forms of prayer and will be a time of peace and reflection in their busy school day.
In Early Years and Key Stage One, our children will be talking about Our Lady and working on knowing the three key prayers of the Rosary by heart: The Hail Mary, The Lord’s Prayer and The Glory Be.
Should you wish to share in our challenge or access the resources at home, the link below will take you to the Mark 10 Mission website, where you can access the resources that we will be using in school.
Fr Shaun came to school to read a story to the Year 1 children. After, we reflected on what we had read, asked Fr some questions and said a prayer together.
As we came to the end of our unit about friendship, we used our ‘Let us pray together’ box to plan our collective worship.
Miss Green chose the Gospel story, which we had listened to during our unit. It was about Jesus’ new rule for us. Then we used the colours on the reading to help us to choose how we would gather, encounter the Word, respond and what our mission would be.
This was our final plan.
As it was such a lovely day, we decided to have our worship outside and we prepared the worship area.
We gathered together in a circle and held hands to show we are all friends.
Just as we were about to start, our buddies from Year 6 came out and joined us.
We gave them our friendship bracelets which we had made. Our mission was to not leave anyone out and to say something nice to someone.
John’s Gospel, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.”
We got our worship area ready.
We sang ‘Alleluia’ to get ready to listen to the Gospel.
In response, we said a prayer in our hearts to Jesus, to ask Him to help us be honest and truthful like He was.
