‘Ask and seek and your heart will big enough to receive God’
St Teresa of Calcutta
The school day starts and ends with a prayer and grace is said at lunchtime. Assemblies are held three times a week. This includes a class assembly to which parents are welcome. Throughout the year Mass is regularly celebrated in the school, and on other feast days in the parish church. Each class has a prayer focus area for children to turn to when they pray and parents are invited to join our year group Masses and class prayer services.
The Wednesday Word
Every Wednesday, a ‘word’ (inspired by the Sunday Gospel) is given out to the children to discuss together in class and to take home for family to talk about at home. We believe The Wednesday Word shows that Gospel values really do help family relationships to thrive.
We encourage all families to regularly read The Wednesday Word together and enjoy sharing special time with their children each week.
Children in Key Stage Two take turns to lead worship based on The Wednesday Word. A rota is set up for each class to participate in child-led worship with our Parish Priests, Fr David and Fr Alan. The children independently plan and take part in the worship. Through this they growing in their love for Jesus.
There are three stages to The Wednesday Word:
A Special Five Minutes Together – discussion time
Wednesday’s Word is – Gospel’s meaning in one word
Loving God and Each Other – Going Forth and living out Jesus’ message
Then children can have fun completing the Gospel Gallery and Sunday Searches activities
