On Wednesday 7th October our first group presented their act of worship to the school and their invited grown-ups. Ioan Dow, Niamh Tillin, Holly Conway, Olivia Sharpe, Archie Adamas, Adonay Williams, Emily Scholes and Abi Davies presented on 'Friendship'.
They included the things friends do together, a play written by Niamh teaching the other children how to ask in the right way if they want to join in a game, a poem, a hymn and a prayer. The children wrote and delivered with minimal adult intervention and set the standard for future groups! (They even did their own photocopying and administration!)
On Tuesday 3rd November the second group presented to the school. The group did a great job as they performed the day after half term but they hadn't forgotten their script. Well done to Grace Laird, Zara Tough, Florrie Hydes, Elizabeth Hardwicke, Louis Goodall, Aleena Khan and Harry Crawley. This 'Hooked on Worship' was all about Freedom and Justice.
The children taught us what the words freedom and justice mean and how to do the signs. They did a play written by Florrie, retold the story of Rosa Parks who made a stand against segregationist laws and asked questions about what we can do when there is not freedom and justice for people in terms of their faith. They recited a poem about freedom and also included a hymn and a prayer.
On Thursday 14th March 2019, the theme was Commitment and Faith to summarise February's value. Ellie P, Chloe R, Lexie C, Connor J, Amelie M, Ashton M, James A and Grace B wrote and performed stories and a prayer. They read a bible story and introduced a new song to the school. They worked well together and enjoyed planning and performing their ideas which were appreciated by the whole school.
