Our Year 2 and Year 5 children are offered the opportunity to support Collective Worship by becoming Worship Leaders. These children will help to host important parts of our time together, they include:
The Welcome: Two children will stand at the doors and welcome our children into Collective Worship. This helps the children to enter into a calm, focused and purposeful environment.
The Wave: One child will come to the front and ask the children to wave at each other, at the teachers and anyone else around school, this helps us to feel united as a family.
The Greeting and Response: One child will stand at the front, they will greet the children and the children will respond. This helps the children to understand we are starting our time together.
The Trinity: Three children in Year 2 and one child in Year 5 will introduce the Trinity into our time together. They will help to dress the altar, opening the Bible, positioning Jesus' cross and lighting a candle for the Holy Spirit. This helps the children to learn that God is 3-in-1, He is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Year 2 Worship Leaders
Year 5 Worship Leader
The Prayer: In Year 5, one child is asked to lead and start the prayer. We like to make sure the children are part of this time.
Our School Prayer
On a Monday during our 'Headteachers Worship' our children will be invited to say a prayer with Mrs Smith. One child will be invited to lead the children with saying 'The Grace' before leaving our time together.
On a Tuesday during 'Special and Remember' our children will say a prayer based on the theme of the time together.
On a Wednesday during 'Choral Worship' our children will say the School Prayer which was written by the first children who started in our school, it is part of their legacy.
On a Thursday during our 'Clergy Worship' our children will say the Lord's Prayer as the local Reverends will join us. The children will also be offered to receive a blessing prayer from Reverend Andrew or Carol.
On a Friday during our 'Celebration Worship' our children will say the School Prayer because it focuses on our mission of 'Being The Best We Can Be' which is why we are celebrating individual achievement in learning or citizenship.
The Song: Year 5 Worship leaders are also asked to participate in leading the actions for the songs we sing as part of Choral Worship. They will support the younger children and become role models joining in with the adults at the front.
The Exit: Two children will stand at the doors and support the children leaving Collective Worship. This helps the children to leave with reverence and a sense of calm reflection.
