Today , 10/10/2017, Year 5 held a Class Act of Worship in their classroom, led by Italia, Bradley, Jack and Jakub. The theme was based around Families and the children started by singing a hymn ‘God of Angel Armies’. After they had said a prayer, the children were asked to pass a pebble around the circle and as they did so to remember that Jesus is always with us. Then the children passed around a red rose. As they did this, they had to think about someone they had lost and say a prayer for them. Jack read a short reading from the bible (Genesis 1:26-31). The children were given a mission for the week which was to treat others as they would want to be treated. After finishing with the sign of the cross, the children sang ‘My Lighthouse’.
Christian Denominations Research
Today the children in Y5 took part in an RE lesson where they were using the ipads and QR codes to research a Christian Denomination such as: Quakers, Anglicans, Pentecostals and Baptists. The children created a fact file about these denominations and then used this to teach other groups what they had been researching.
Tidying Up - CAOW
Today Kiara, Daisy and Blake took responsibility for the Class Act of Worship. They decided to create the theme of littering and looking after the environment. The children sang song such as ‘Heal the World’ by Michael Jackson and the hymn ‘Go out in the world’. They read a reading from Genesis, reminding the children that God made the world for our benefit and how we should look after the creation around us. They then asked the children to write a thank you prayer on a piece of paper and put it into their ‘home made bin’ to reinforce the message of tidying up after ourselves. What a lovely idea!
CAOW - Good Samaritan
Today some of the girls in year 5 took part in a Class Act of Worship based on the theme of friendship. The children started off by singing the friends theme song 'I'll be there for you'. After this they listened to the story of the Good Samaritan and acted it out to make it more interesting for those watching. After that, the children took part in answering questions about the story, what it meant to them and how they could be more like the Good Samaritan. After that, the children said a silent prayer for the needs of others in the world. Their mission was to shake hands with the people around them and to be a good friend to everyone and sang my lighthouse together. What a lovely class act of worship that gave us a lot to think about!
