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
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

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.
