Collective Worship is practiced daily at Great Barton. Mrs Ratley leads collective worship for the school and works closely with the children and teachers as well as members of the local churches to deliver collective worship. A typical week is:
Monday - whole school collective worship
Tuesday - "Open the Book" or School Council worship
Wednesday - Church led worship
Thursday - Sing Praise
Friday - Greatness worship (where we celebrate the class achievements)
We use the Imaginor Roots and Fruits materials to support our Worship. We focus on a number of Christian Values across the terms. Please click on the document below to see which values we focus on. We are currently on year "A".
The CWL Team
The CWL (Collective Worship Leaders) team work with Mrs Ratley to help to plan Collective Worship for the school. They offer their ideas for how Collective Worship can be developed; help to lead worship and come up with ideas for the whole school to live out our Christian values in action.
Our team consists of the following children:
Owl Class: Ursa and Raif
Robin Class: Esme and Ewan
Fox Class: Beth and Jackson
Squirrel Class: Lucy and Noah
Badger Class: Eve and Daisy
Hare Class: Arron and Lily
Osprey Class: Leo and Sophie
Our value this half term is friendship.
It is important to remember our friends, especially now during the lock-down period. Although we can't meet them face-to-face, there are many more ways to stay in touch. What ways can you show friendship? How are you staying in touch?
