On Tuesday 1st December Year 3 and 4 Faith Team members Milo, Emilia, Elodie and Lennon led Year 3 and 4’s Collective Worship in the hall. On Wednesday 9th December Year 5 and 6 Faith Team members, Adam, Jessie, Amelie and Gabriel led Year 5 and 6’s Collective Worship in the hall. The Faith Team lead Collective Worship once a term and this is a particular highlight of their role! Ordinarily, all of the Faith Team members would lead Collective Worship together for the whole school. Sadly, this is not possible at the moment, but we were all pleased that the children still had the opportunity to lead a Collective Worship with their phase group.
This term, during Collective Worship our focus has been on stories from the Old Testament. With this in mind, the Faith Team lead a Collective Worship based on the story of Jonah and the Whale. Jonah and the Whale is a well-known story from the Bible with the key message of being sorry and asking for forgiveness. The Faith Team explored this message through the Bible story and talked about how saying sorry isn’t always easy, but how it is important when we’ve done something wrong it is the first step to making things better again.
