Collective Worship

As a Catholic School, we attach the greatest importance to Collective Worship in the life of our school. We give our children opportunities to grow in faith, love and compassion to Jesus by reflecting the true meanings of Jesus' words.


This term our Collective Worship will be based around the theme of forgiveness, caring for others and love to God. We will be celebrating the FEAST of the ASCENSION of JESUS CHRIST and reflecting the true meaning of this special time. 


May is a very special month in the Catholic calendar as it marks the MONTH OF MARY. During this time, we will be thinking about Mary and reflecting on how she is the Mother of Jesus and Mother to us all. We will be using the class rosery to pray to Mary and writing our own prayers to Her.  

In collective worship we looked at 'The call to love others'.

As a class we listened to and sang the song 'Let their be love shared among us' and read the scripture John 5:1-6. We discussed who we feel loved by and how we show love to others, when role played scenarios when we can show our love. 

Collective Worship Assemblies

Anointing of Jesus; criticism by Judas

John 12:1-8

In our Collective Worship assembly, we reflected on the story of the anointment of Jesus. We explored the timing of it (before the last supper) and why it was done. We discussed the reasons why Jesus' feet were washed and why it was ok to use such expensive perfume in doing this. We thought about how everyone wanted to show Jesus that they were not worthy of Him and how we show this today. 


We finished off by saying a prayer together and listening to a hymn.
