Collective Worship at St Josephs
A huge part of our Catholic lives at St Josephs is how we gather together for Collective Worship.
At our school we gather in different ways to reflect, pray and praise God for the blessings we have in our lives. Sometimes we gather as a whole school and other times we gather as individual classes. Sometimes the worhsips are led by staff and other times they are planned and led by the pupils.
We use 'Virtues to Live By' in providing themes and reflective focuses for our worships. The information below shows what the different virtues are that provide themes our worships and spiritual development:
Year 6 had fun learning about St Paul in the sunshine. They used artwork to show how his life changed though his conversion to Christianity.
St Bernadette's learning about Baptism.
|As part of our work on Mary, the children made crowns and painted pictures of Mary. The children in Key Stage 2 learnt how to say the rosary, we then painted pictures of rosary beads. The children visited the prayer garden in small groups. We prayed to Mary and some children were able to crown Mary.|
Reception class visit the church.
|Reception class went to visit Fr. Peter in the church. He showed them around the church and explained to the children all the special parts of the church. They looked at all the signs and symbols.||The children got to ask lots of questions and even got to go onto the altar!|
St Francis' Class learning about Daniel and the Lion
Key Stage 1 Learning about 'The Mass.'
|During the spring term, the children in Key stage 1 have been learning about, 'The Mass' as part of their R.E. work in class. Fr Peter visited the children in the class and the children then visited Fr. Peter in the church. They learnt all about the signs and symbols of the Mass.|
