Your child has planned their own collective worship that they will lead at some point during the year with a chosen partner. This includes Gather, Word, Response and Mission. We will let your child know before it is their day in order to practise familiarising themselves with the scripture at home. There is a list below of the dates of the children's collective worship.
This half term our topic is 'Beginning with the Church'.
Key Vocabulary - sacrament, initiation, ritual, words, actions and symbols, presbyter (one who presides at liturgy), consecration, transubstantiation
In this topic, children will explore the idea of belonging and what it feels like to belong to something. We will learn about the signs and symbols we find in Church, as well as the Sacraments of Initiation which we take part in to be welcomed into the Church.
It is really useful to talk to children at home about different Bible stories in order for them to recognise various parables in class and make links between the meaning behind them and how it links with their own lives.
