Who are we?
We are Wilf, Griff, Harry, Lilly, Hollie and Leah. We are all in Year 6 at Norton. Our role is to help plan, deliver and evaluate our collective worship in school. We also help to promote our school Christian values. If you have any ideas for Collective Worship please come and talk to one of us.
What we are working on
Each Wednesday we meet with Mrs Harris. Here is what we have been discussing recently:
Wednesday 4th January
We looked at our Worship Team award criteria and decided on tasks for the week.
Wilf, Lilly and Griff will be designing posters to explain Collective Worship to younger children.
Harry, Leah and Hollie will be writing a prayer to share in Collective Worship.
Wednesday 23rd November
Mrs Harris shared the new gathering phrases to be used to introduce our Learn Believe Achieve assemblies on Fridays. These link to our school vision and values. Harry will collect them from Mrs Rapley.
Mrs Harris updated the children on MAF advent calendars that will be given out next week and explained how this will link to the Suffolk Inspiring Angels project.
Wednesday 16th November
Wilf introduced our Prayer Space to the whole school is assembly today.
We worked together to write a letter to parents and carers about the Doxa Sock project Caroline Vallance has asked us to be involved with.
Wednesday 9th November
We reviewed their progress towards the Bronze award and decided that our next focus would be to develop a reflection space in the hall. The Worship Team explored the resources on 'Prayer Spaces for Schools'. We decided to go for 'Diversity Chains' to celebrate everyone's uniqueness.
Mrs Harris ordered some people cutouts. Worship Team will prepare resources this week to be displayed by next Wednesday.
