Week beginning 2nd January 2018
Our new value for this term is Courage and the main bible story that we will refer to is David and Goliath. We found some lovely Lego animations of this story that the children also really enjoyed.
Week beginning 8th January 2018
As I mentioned we are now enjoying learning about courage and this week we heard about how Moses showed great courage when he listened to the voice that came out of the bush that was on fire and bravely led his people to safety. We reflected on challenges that lie ahead of us and how small steps can help us to reach those targets. We also shared Finn’s fantastic Lego animation that he made at home and can be found on ‘youtube’ under ‘jungledramalego’. Finn really inspired the whole school as he explained how he had made the animation and hundreds of children now want to try this.
Week beginning 15th January 2018
This week the children heard the story of Esther the Brave and thought about how sometimes we can try to do the right thing not always the easy thing. We also talked about famous heroes/heroines in history who took the right course of action rather than the easy option. We also shared the Sikh story of the rich man and the needle of heaven where Guru Nanak travelled far and wide teaching people about God. He explained that God is there for everyone and that we should work hard and be generous to one another.
Week beginning 22nd January 2018
This week the children have been thinking about Courage, facing challenges and Chinese New Year. The GLOW team also gave me some feedback about what they do and don’t enjoy in our worship time. They all said that they love it when children are involved in leading it, singing and more interactive stories. They said some of the stories without pictures are a bit boring.
Week beginning 29th January 2018
This week we have seen some GLOW team members act out the story of Daniel and the Lions with Belinda and her puppet Jack the puppy. We also shared the story of the Gruffalo and thought about how the mouse showed bravery in this story.
Week beginning 5th February 2018
This week GLOW team led their first worship and they were so brave. The rest of the children responded really well to them and got a good understanding of how we can encourage and discourage people in what we say. We also learnt about Lent and Shrove Tuesday as it falls in half term.
