Collective worship is a valued and important part of our school day. This half term we were delighted to start meeting together as a whole school, it was great to all be together again. We also enjoyed the opportunity of going to church as a whole school for our Easter service and welcoming parents to join us.
We have begun to welcome back some visitors - Rev Stephen and Governor Mrs. Greaves come in and do some Open the Book stories and Mark Twine the youth worker from St. Mary's has been joining us once a fortnight.
Children in each class are enjoying planning acts of collective worship for their classmates. There is a photo below of the year 2 team in action!
On Fridays children in key stage 2 have the opportunity to fill in diaries of reflection - the theme usually corresponds to what we have been looking at in collective worship that week. Also on Fridays the children are awarded with their merit and VIP awards (Values in practice).
Year 6 Reflective stations
Year 6 have enjoyed the chance to reflect on their time at St. Stephen's and think about their move to high school through a series of reflective stations in the hall.
Below are some of the members of our Open the Book team - we are looking forward to a time when we can welcome them all back in.
Pupils from year 6 delivered a very informative collective worship about COP26 in the Autumn term and encouraged us all to take action.
Also there are photos of examples of the lovely reflections by year 6 during their 'space for reflection' on the last Monday of term. The pupils had the opportunity to reflect on their time in school and also to look forward to next year.
