Group discussion focusing on Collective Worship
Why do we have worship?
This is a Christian school and the school wants to teach us about God.
To learn about friendship and God.
What do you like most about worship?
We get to make up prayers and we can write things about each other and put them into the jars that are our School and Christian Values.
I like learning about friendship and kindness.
What is your favourite type of worship e.g. whole school; in Church?
We like it when the Vicar leads worship and gets us involved. We also like it when we perform plays in Church.
When we are in Church with the whole school.
What is important to you about being part of a Church school?
We know more about being a Christian and going to Church.
It's important to believe in God.
How do you think that the school values help you live your lives?
They help you to become a better person. When you're older you'll have more compassion for other people and responsibility.
They help us to do the right things when we are older.
To make us good people.
To learn from our mistakes.
Can you think about one of our school values - have you experienced this in action either by one of your friends, your classmates or yourself?
COMPASSION - I've seen other people show compassion to people who are upset and sat on the 'Friendship' bench.
RESPONSIBILITY - Two of us have taken responsibility for keeping the pencil pots in order.
PERSEVERANCE - I have persevered when I have felt ill but I still did my work.
If you wish to spend a moment reflecting, where do you go?
In the Library.
Near to Herons' class where I can relax and pray.
On the grass area.
