Chiddingstone Church of England School

Educating for life in all its fullness - John 10:10

Collective Worship

Week Three .

This week we are thinking about who were Jesus’ disciples and how they learnt from Jesus through what he said and did and  through the stories he told. Our focus is the story of the Good Samaritan which starts with a question ‘ Who is my neighbour?’ This is the story that underpins our vision at Chiddingstone and challenges us with these questions;

  • Who is my neighbour at school, at home and in the local community?
  • What can we do to show love to our neighbours today?
  • How can we show love to our global ‘neighbours?’
  • Sometimes loving our neighbour is difficult; why?  What do you think Jesus would do?

As we look at the map in our reflective corners you might like  to pray for Joe Biden as he is inaugurated as president  on Wednesday.

        KS1 songs:

Week Two: Simon Peter meets Jesus.

In our Key Stage AOWs this week, our story is from the gospel of Matthew about the calling of Simon Peter.

After watching the recording you may like to sing these songs.

 

 KS1 Songs:

 I have a friend in Jesus

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65Yk8-yJxEg

 

Great big God

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8fcpShP19c

 

KS2 Song:

        Jesus put this song

                https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rgKaXcpm4F8

 

Ideas for discussion:

  • I wonder how you made your first friends?
  • I wonder what we can learn from our meeting with Simon Peter in the gospel of Matthew? Perhaps it is that God knows the best you can be and wants to help you to become that.
  • How can you be good news today to those around you ?
  • What are the names of Jesus’ disciples? Can you find out about what sort of work they did before meeting Jesus?

Week One : Epiphany

These Key Stage acts of Worship celebrate Epiphany.

 Epiphany means ‘showing’ or ‘revelation’ and celebrates the story of the wise men from the East following the star to Bethlehem where they give gifts of significance (gold, frankincense and myrrh) to Jesus.

At the end of the AOW I suggest listening to or joining in with the carol  ‘We Three Kings.’

 Key stage two pupils you might like to unpack some of the words and phrases if you have time.

 

This version has the words:

This one has moving cartoon characters and singing so if you would like the words see below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68k6dzdzoto&t=4s

 

We three kings of Orient are
Bearing gifts we traverse afar
Field and fountain, moor and mountain
Following yonder star

CHORUS:

Oh, star of wonder, star of night
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to thy perfect light
We three kings, we three kings

Born a king on Bethlehem's plain
Gold I bring to crown Him again
King forever, ceasing never
Over us all to reign

CHORUS:

Myrrh is mine, it's bitter perfume
Breaths a life of gathering gloom
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding dying
Sealed in the stone-cold tomb

 

Frankincense to offer have I

Incense owns its Deity nigh

Prayer and praising, all men raising

Worship Him God most high

CHORUS

Week 7

We shall be thinking about angels as messengers - not only in the story of Mary and the angel Gabriel but also in  the story of Elizabeth and Zechariah as we prepare for our Nativity recording on Wednesday.

Do practise 'Thanks and praise ' which we will be singing at the end of our nativity and any songs that your class will be singing too.

A verse to reflect on:

 

The angel said to them, “Don’t be afraid, because I am bringing you some good news. It will be a joy to all the people.  Today your Saviour was born in David’s town. He is Christ, the Lord. Luke 2: 10.11

Happy Christmas everyone!

Week Six

We shall be hearing about Ruth, the mother of Obed who in turn was the grandfather of King David who of course is in Jesus' family tree.

It is a story of rescue and faithfulness and is a reminder for  Christians that Jesus, by dying on the cross, came to rescue people from the wrong things that cause a barrier between them and God. 

The story of Ruth, a member of Jesus' family tree,( the Jesse tree) is a reminder of God's faithfulness and Ruth's trust in God .

As we prepare for our nativity please sing the songs below.

 

KS1 Calypso carol

KS2 O Holy Night

Oh what a glorious night.

23/11SB Explaining the Advent wreath

This week we are making our class Advent wreaths as we prepare for Advent Sunday ( 29th November) and we shall be learning about the meaning behind the shape of the wreath, the evergreen foliage and of course the candles. The class wreath will be a focus for our prayers in our reflective corner this week as we come into  the  season of Advent.

 

Here are two of the songs  which we will be singing in our school Nativity this year and which we can sing as part of our AOW today.

 Week 3 Committed to creating a fairer world

16/11The story of Zacchaeus.

This week we shall be thinking about fairness and being committed to creating a fairer world whether we are at home, school , enjoying these beautiful Autumn days or thinking of those who don't have enough food, shelter or a safe place to live. One of the things we can always do is to pray, so do use your reflective corners to write prayers to use in your class worship. This week our worship board poster has the title 'Hope for the world.'

You may like to use the songs below in your worship today and tomorrow .

9/11 We find out about Florence Nightingale and think about her faith, her determination, kindness and leadership as she did so much to improve nursing care.

This week we are looking at vulnerability- it is not a commonly used word and might not seem easy to explore with children – but it is something we all experience and see in the world,. Christians are reminded throughout the Bible that God’s power and grace is enough, that even in times of vulnerability, we will not be left abandoned or alone.

 

We will be looking at the story of Mary anointing Jesus and showing what she believed even with people who were critical of Jesus and followers of Jesus. We shall also be exploring how it is good to ask for help from people we trust and ask God to help us when we feel vulnerable.

Please keep the conversation going with your class all week as you unpack the meaning of vulnerability for ourselves and others.

 

The song for both Key Stages is :

Be bold ,be strong

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zRvCUz6KFB4

 

 A song for reflection is :

I have a friend in Jesus , Life tree kids
