Assembly by Kirstin Howarth - 1st March 2021

Thought for the week beginning 1st March:

For this week, I was prompted by having received a lot of lovely thank you letters, to offer a thought on gratitude. It looks at the importance of saying thank you, using the story of the ten lepers, and also considers how having a thankful attitude - spending time every day thinking about what we are thankful for - is good for our own wellbeing. It includes the suggestion that children could make their own 'gratitude journals' to keep a record of what they feel thankful for.

Assembly by Kirstin Howarth - 22nd February 2021

Thought for the week beginning 22nd Feb:

Revd Canon Beverley Hollins, who often provides collective worship resources for our schools, is moving to take up a new post as Rector of St Peter Weston Favell.  So, she has written to introduce her first two recordings for Lent as follows: ‘For me, the challenges include moving house and changing to a new parish role, so I am going to be trying to get well ahead with the thought for the week recordings. The theme of Lent focuses on 'the wilderness' as a place where we don't cultivate the soil or do other kinds of work - we go there to stop and listen to God and to learn about God and ourselves. Not so easy in a school to find places to stop and not work, so I look a little at how the things we give up or take up in Lent might help with that.

Assemblies and Collective Worship week commencing 8 February 2021

 

This week's Thought for the Week Worship from Canon Beverley, which is on the theme of couragehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ne2tKYaVtq4

 

There are two extra RE lessons this week that Canon Beverley has kindly prepared for Year 5 and Year 2 children:

 

The film for Year 5 RE on the theme of love, majoring on St Paul's teaching in 1 Corinthians 13: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0GCI5WM4X8&t=4s

The lesson seeks to establish what Christians (and faiths generally) think of when we talk about love, and it uses 1 Corinthians 13 extensively. 

 

A film for Year 2 on the theme of believing in an invisible God:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eN91SsoOxuk

The idea is to explore that we believe in invisible things, and how people of faith believe in an invisible God. It uses lots of illustrations such as electricity, radiowaves and adding salt to water.

 

Thanks to our fellow Advisers in the Dioceses of Guildford and Southwark who have produced some worship to mark the sad death of Captain Tom aged 100 years. 

 

During the pandemic many families have suffered the serious illness or death of family, friends and neighbours.  The death of Captain Tom may bring feelings of sadness and grief to the surface, especially for families who have been bereaved themselves recently.  When a public figures dies it seems to almost give people permission to demonstrate their feelings of grief. Captain Tom had been seen as a beacon of hope during the pandemic, his words ‘tomorrow will be a good day’  trended on twitter.  Hope for the future is important in helping us get through this difficult time, and it is possible that some people will find the loss of this figure of hope difficult.

 

 The documents below will allow you to discuss the life and achievements of Captain Tom with your children within Worship.  They may help you talk about his death and how sad this is for his family.  This is to allow children to share their thoughts and feelings about loss and sadness in a safe environment.  Your child may want to talk to you about their feelings of loss including missing important events and people who they cannot see at present.

Below is:

  • A script
  • A PowerPoint
  • A Together – At Home version

There is no video for this collective worship because it would be best if this sensitive subject is covered by a familiar adult. Please use it with your children as you see fit.
