Y 4 Liturgy

This week in year 4 the children presented a very prayerful liturgy. They explained about how God makes everything grow. Together we sang ‘This Little Light of Mine’ and discussed how we all have lovely qualities; given by God. During reflection we passed a heart shaped pebble around the circle and thought about everything we are thankful for.

We ended by singing ‘If I were a butterfly’. This was chosen so we could give thanks to God for making us who we are.

The children’s comments included; ‘I know that God is always with us’.

Thank you Year 4.

Y3 Class Worship

Today our worship was planned and delivered by Riley, Sam, Megan and Yazmin. We gathered and made the sign of the cross on the forehead of the person next to us. We then listened to the story of the Baptism of Jesus. We responded by thinking about the story and we used water to make the sign of the cross on our heads. This helped us to think about the time of Jesus and his Baptism. We all then enjoyed singing ‘Sing it in the Valleys’. Another lovely and reflective worship led by Year 3.

Today the children explored their new topic of promises. The children listened to the story of Paul and his karate club. In this he discussed the rules and promises he had to make.

We loved hearing about the clubs that we are part of and the promises we had to make.
