Worship Round Up

Thursday 28th March 2024

Our weekly round-up aims to support our parents in the conversations that they are having at home with their children. Each week, we will share the themes of each of our worships and any resources that we have been using, such as: videos, books and music, to allow our parents to access these if they wish to. Our weekly worship is structured in the following way: 

  • Monday Worship Focus: ‘The World Needs More Purple Schools’ led by class teachers or the senior leadership team who explore the theme of 'All Made in God's Image' and how we can follow the example of Jesus;
  • Tuesday Worship Focus: ‘What’s happening in the world this week?’ led by Mrs Griffin and focusing on key events that are taking place in the world currently;
  • Wednesday Worship Focus: ‘Bible Focus' led by Mrs Evans or Mrs Griffin;
  • Thursday Worship Focus: Singing led by Mrs Walker;
  • Friday Worship Focus: Values and Celebration led by Mrs Evans who revisits one of our core values — Commitment, Courage and Love, along with celebrating the team points winners for the week and achievements from outside school with the pupils.

Monday's Worship

Listening Really Well

On Monday we had our final worship focused on 'The World Needs More Purple Schools'. Today we focused on the importance of 'listening really well'. We thought about why it is important to listen to others and reflected on these key questions: 'Do we always have to agree?'; 'How should we share our opinions if we disagree with others?'; 'Is there ever a time when we should not share our opinion?' We closed worship by recognising that we hear many examples of Jesus taking time to listen to those around him and thought about how we could do this better in our own lives too.  

 Tuesday's Worship

Neurodiversity Celebration Week

Today in worship, Mrs Griffin introduced 'Neurodiversity Celebration Week'. She asked us to consider what the word 'neurodiversity' means and we reflected on it referring to differences in the brain. Neurodiversity is a term used for lots of different people who have different thinking or communicating styles. She then shared this video to give us some more information:

Following watching the video, she asked us to reflect on the three tips given by the children about making everyone in our community feel included:

1. Never tease or make fun of someone for being different or finding something difficult.

2. Be kind, encouraging and understanding.

3. Remember that you have the power to make a BIG difference to someone who could be having a difficult time. 

Wednesday's Worship

Easter Service at St Paul's

Today the Faith Reps led worship at St Paul's church. They began by focusing on three images of a cross:

 

They talked about the first meaning that you have done something wrong, the second meaning love and the third meaning that eventhough you have done something wrong you are still loved. They shared readings from the Bible and then gave us all a chance to offer up things that we have not done well to God. They closed worship with prayers. It was a wonderful service - thank you to Mrs Griffin and the Faith Reps for the work that went into preparing it.
