Mrs Truslove asked the children to explain family groups. These are a selection of responses.
'Family groups are a mix of children from all years working together.'
'We all work together and like speaking to children from different year groups and finding out more about them.'
'Year 6 lead their groups without the teachers and make sure that their family groups complete the task.'
'We all get to make decisions and it is great because we get lots done with no pressure and everyone joins in.'
'We think they are a good way of communicating and working with new friends.'
'In these groups we talk about Christianity and other religions and think about how God would want us to live.'
'We also take a big part in the things that happen in the school and our opinion on what we want to happen.'
'In the Spring term we write and perform Bible story assemblies of our own. It takes a long time but it is worth every second of it when we perform it in front of the rest of the school!'
'We write our own prayers about the things that are important to us and to other people in the world.'
'As you can see we really enjoy our family groups and we put a lot of enjoyable time and effort into them.'
'Most importantly they are fun.'
During Collective Worship in our family groups, we went outside and held hands to think about the world around us. In this way, we began to explore our spirituality.
Over the past few weeks, the children have been writing their own Collective Worship performances within their family groups. Each group chooses a Bible Story, a Hymn and a Prayer and each child has their own part to play. Each one of the Bible Stories chosen relate in some way to our seven virtues of Love, Faith, Justice, Wisdom, Moderation, Courage and Hope.
The children have chosen to perform the following stories: The Good Samaritan, David and Goliath, Noah's Ark, The Ten Commandments, Jesus Walks on Water, Samson and Delilah, The Lion's Den, Food for the Hungry and Baby in a Boat.
