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 1 our value was generosity.
In Term 2 our value was compassion.
In Term 3 our value was courage.
In Term 4 our value is forgiveness.
Our Collective Worship theme for this term is the value of forgiveness. Our Bible quote is:
‘Just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you must also forgive others.’ Colossians 3.13.
Throughout this term we will be thinking about how everyone makes mistakes. Sometimes our mistakes hurt others and then we need to say sorry. Sometimes mistakes made by other people hurt us. When this happens we need to be able to forgive. Forgiveness can be difficult and costly but without it a new start is impossible. At home you could talk about:
A time when you needed to say sorry
A time when you didn’t say sorry but you wish you had
A time when you had to forgive someone who had hurt or upset you
How it feels when you are given a new start because someone has forgiven you

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.
This week we have been learning about the festival of Diwali. We made Indian sweets and also Diva lamps out of clay. Having listened to the story of Rama and Sita, some of us made masks and retold the story.
