Collective Worship - Term 3

Week 5

It has been great to speak to some of your parents, this week and it seems that many of you are working hard with your remote learning. Remember to email anything that you would like me to put onto the Worship page.

This week, there are two different recordings made by Mrs Swansbury, for you to watch and reflect on, and Mary-Jane has kindly sent this worship link to us so that we can worship together from wherever we are.

Sending my best wishes to you and your families,

Mrs J Wright

Clip one – Back on Track

Good News! - Back on Track

Once you have watched the video, you might like to sing along to this song while you reflect on what Mrs Swansbury has talked about. Click on the picture for the song.

Clip two – Forgive

Good News! - Forgive

This link plays the hymn ‘What a friend we have in Jesus’, which reminds us to share our troubles and worries with God, in our prayers. Click on the picture below for the link to the song.

Week 4

I hope that you are all taking the time to think about the people around you, especially your neighbours. Following last week’s recordings celebrating the others in your community and across the world, have you managed to smile or wave at someone? Perhaps you have prayed for someone.

This week, there are two different recordings made by Mrs Swansbury, for you to watch and reflect on.

Sending my best wishes to you and your families,

Mrs J Wright

Clip one – Unconditional Love

Good News! - Unconditional Love

Week 3

I hope that you enjoyed last week’s Worship recordings and the art and craft activities that accompanied them. If you made a spinning fish, a lantern or a thankfulness tree, I would love to see a photograph or hear about how much you enjoyed creating your special piece of artwork. You can send an email to jwright@allsouls.kent.sch.uk and I will share your thoughts, reflections and pictures on this page. Please remember to get permission from an adult to do this. Thank you.

Love Your Neighbour

Good News! - Love Your Neighbour

Once you have watched the video, you might like to listen to this song while you reflect on what Mrs Swansbury has talked about. Click on the image below for the song.

 
Love Your Neighbour: Think Globally

Good News! - Love Your Neighbour - Thinking Globally

This is a tweet posted by the Archbishop of Canterbury:

‘Staying at home is loving your neighbour.

Wearing a mask is loving your neighbour.

Keeping your distance is loving your neighbour.

Washing your hands is loving your neighbour.

Let’s keep loving our neighbours’.

After watching the video, perhaps you could reflect on the people who are your neighbours. You might like to make some houses out of paper and think about some of your neighbours, either in your community or globally. Make every house unique for each neighbour that you think of.

 

Week 2

I hope that you enjoyed last week’s Worship recordings and the beautiful music that accompanied them as much as I did.

This week, there are three different recordings made by Mrs Swansbury for you to watch and reflect on. Each one has a follow-up activity for you to do.

Sending my best wishes to you and your families,

Mrs J Wright

Day one - Peter

Good News! Peter

You might like to do this activity after you have watched the Worship clip: 

https://flamecreativekids.blogspot.com/2015/06/jesus-calls-disciples-spinning-fish.html

This prayer activity links really well with the story of Jesus calling the disciples but could be used to pray for anyone or any situation!

You will need: strips of paper (experiment with length but the ones shown are roughly 10cm x 2cm) Scissors, pens

Choose a strip of paper and write on it the name of the person or situation you would like to pray for. Cut slits near to the ends of the strip as shown below.

 Fit the slits together to make a fish shape.  Now comes the fun part.

   

Hold the fish high in the air and let it go.  As it gains momentum you will see it start to spin!

 

Day two – Martha

Good News! Martha

A prayer/reflection activity

Make a paper lantern and use a light (not a candle) inside it to show how the light shines through. 

https://www.thecrafttrain.com/mini-paper-lanterns-with-printable-template/ gives some simple instructions.

How could light shine through you so that others could see it?  What could you do so that others feel that their day is brighter because of you?  You could add a label to the lantern to show how you are going to do this.

 

Day three – Nathanael and Philip

Good News! Nathanael and Philip

More thinking about what we learn from Philip and Nathanael

Spend time saying thank you for all the different things that help you get along well with others in your home and class and school.

A prayer/reflection activity

Find a bare branch and put in a pot. Take a moment to think of three things you can be thankful for that have happened recently especially times when you have worked with and alongside others. It might be doing well with some schoolwork, having a time of joy and laughter with your family, making something amazing, getting out for a walk where you saw and experienced the wonders of Creation or so many other things. Write three things you are thankful for onto a leaf shape and fill your bare branch with signs of life in new leaves.
