A daily act of collective worship is the corner stone of our school day. Our worship is invitational and is an opportunity for children and adults to reflect and be still. During collective worship we invite children to learn about and from all world religions, and reflect on how these relate to their own lives.
As a Church of England school, we thoroughly enjoy learning about (and acting out!) stories from the Bible.
We also give children the opportunity to discuss a wide range of important issues such as stereotyping, injustice, the environment, racism, poverty, and much more.
Collective worship ordinarily takes place in the hall each day, and is a wonderful opportunity for the school to begin the day together.
At the end of each day, children have the opportunity to reflect and discuss in more detail their thoughts, feelings and learning around the morning collective worship.
Our story this week...
This week we have been listening to the story of Daniel and the Lions. Year 5 led our worship and acted out the story.
During reflection we thought about how Daniel showed great respect to his God by continuing to pray to him, even though King Darius had forbidden it.
