At Saint George’s Primary Phase we have a daily act of worship. Our worship usually takes place in our school hall. As children come into the hall for worship we play calming music for the children to listen to, enabling them to be calm and focused. Each week we have a new Worship focus and ‘Thought for the Week’. This is embedded into other areas of learning within the classroom. A main candle is lit at the start of each worship, as well as a candle from each class. These are a symbol that God is with us and are also a focal point for the children. At the end of worship, the candles are blown out and the class candles are taken back to the classrooms, bringing God and the learning from worship with us throughout our school.
Our Chaplain, Trudi leads our worship on Wednesdays and the children really look forward to Trudi’s worship each week. Once a term our Primary pupils walk to St Mary’s church where Trudi leads our act of worship.
Children also enjoy Singing Worship which takes place on a Thursday. Children are encouraged to join in with a daily worship song each day as well as regular singing within their classroom.
We end our week of worship with a Celebration Worship on a Friday. Children are presented with their ‘Star of the Week’ certificates and our weekly Community house points are added up each week and recorded during worship. We reflect on our learning from worship for the week and how we can take out learning forward in our daily lives.
