Collective Worship and RE

At Dr Radcliffe's there is a daily act of collective worship. This can be whole school but is also key stage based and class based. Each term we have a collective worship theme based around Christian values.

 

In Term 2 our value is Compassion

.

Collective Worship

 

Our Collective Worship theme for this term is the value of Truthfulness. Our Bible quote for the term is:

 

‘Clothe Yourself with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.’ Colossians 3.12.

 

Throughout this term we will be thinking about 'standing in someone else's shoes'. In other words trying to understand how they might be feeling and doing our best to help.To help to reinforce the value at home, you could talk about:

 

  • how we can show kindness and compassion at home

  • recognising when friends at school need us to listen and act with compassion

  • stories in the news demonstrating how strangers show compassion in times of natural disasters

  • how nations show compassion to other nations at times of disaster or need by sending money or volunteers to help

 

Please click on the attachment below if you would like some information on our value of the term and some ideas on activities you can do at home.

We had a lovely afternoon in the Church, on Tuesday thinking about Pentecost and what it means to Christians. We explored scripture from the Bible and artistic impressions and had the chance to reflect through art and words ourselves.

 

A big thank you to Mrs Smit for arranging the afternoon and to Mrs Woodhouse and Mrs Good for helping us.

Class 1 and Class 2 regularly enjoy collective worship led by members of our local community. We call this 'Open the Book'. The volunteers who lead the collective worship dress up and act out Bible stories and a few lucky children are often chosen to join in too!!
