Remembrance Day 11.11.22 Sycamore Class
Anyone who attended the Remembrance Day Assembly led by Sycamore Class on 11th November will know how moving an event it was. All the children worked hard to put together a thoughtful and respectful tribute, of words, art and song. It was particularly impressive that the class were so confident in their presentation despite their teacher being off sick.
The beautiful song Remembrance Day Child was led by a year 5 pupil with the whole school joining in. I think all would agree that it was a real 'goosebumps moment'!
Well done to all concerned!
Pine Class (Year 3) led us in our Harvest Festival Worship on Friday 30th September.
This was held at Sapcote Methodist Church, which was beautifully decorated by the children in Years 1 & 2. The children shared what Harvest Festival meant to them through poems, drama and singing. They acted out the story of Ruth and us all in our prayers.
In recent years the school has collected donations for the Hinckley Foodbank, and by 3rd October the school had raised £821.68 of donations! The following week Julie from the Foodbank came to talk to the whole school about the work carried out by the Hinckley Foodbank. The children learned about why their donations were needed and how they were used. Julie thanked the school for the amazing response.
A big thank you to all those who contributed.
Collective Worship at All Saints is an integral part of each day.
We have a varied programme of Worship which involves class-led worship, visitors and celebration assembly. Here is an example of a typical week's Collective Worship at All Saints.
Monday: Online Collective Worship in our HUB schools
Tuesday: Teacher led Collective Worship in the hall- whole school
Wednesday: The Open the Book team (who act out a Bible story, often with school volunteers), or a visiting leader (local Clergy)
Thursday: Class-led worship (parents and carers will be invited) or singing assembly
Friday: Celebration Assembly (aka HOT CHOCOLATE FRIDAY). Each wee the class teachers choose a child from their class who has gone 'above and beyond' to be awarded a Superstar Certificate. They also get to enjoy a hot chocolate with Mrs Kirby.
At All Saints CE Primary School, collective worship is an important part of our day. Collective worship takes place every day and is led by staff and visitors including the Open the Book team from the local church, Reverend Mick and Reverend Tim.
Collective worship is inspiring, inclusive and invitational.
During the pandemic, all collective worship is pre-recorded and available for children and families on Google Classrooms.
