Collective Worship

For class collective worship we use the "Out of the Box" resource


We have a special box in class that we use during collective worship, inside the box there is:


A Bible - to think about "God the Father"
A Cross - to think about "God's son Jesus"
A Candle - to think about "God the holy spirit"


In Summer 1 we will be exploring the value of friendship

A Christian perspective on Friendship:
Christians believe they can call God their friend because of the relationship made possible through Jesus.


· To encourage children to consider what makes a good friend

· To understand how to support somebody who may not feel included in friendship groups

· To help the children find ways of repairing restoring friendships when they break down

· To ensure that the children know who they can turn to for help, if they are struggling with friendship.


In Spring 2 we will be exploring the value of forgiveness

A Christian perspective on Forgiveness:
Forgiveness is how damaged relationships are mended. It is an act motivated by love. For Christians, Jesus’ death on the cross is the ultimate revelation of God’s all forgiving love, his sacrifice is inspiration to forgive others, no matter what cost.



· Help children understand that we all make mistakes and need forgiveness from others

· For children to know how they can make amends for their mistakes

· For Children to understand that Christians believe that God’s love is so great that forgiveness is always possible

· To explore the Easter story and the symbol of the cross as a symbol of forgiveness


In Spring 1 half term we have been thinking about the value of Hope.


A Christian perspective on Hope:
Christians see their hope in God’s promise “ that love and goodness have, and will ultimately, overcome all evil.” This hope is manifested in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ



· Help children understand that there is a chance of a new beginning and a fresh start in every situation.

· Help the Children understand the Christian perspective of hope, and how it can be reflected upon in their own lives.

· Help the children create their own vision of a hopeful future.

· Help the children understand that they can play a part in creating a more sustainable environment and a better society.
