Teaspoon (tsp) Prayers - 27th February 2020
Teaspoon prayers contain a thank you, a sorry and a please in them. In class based worship, the children wrote their own teaspoon prayers. Here are some from Unit 2:
Thank you for the food we have and how lucky we are.
Sorry for the wrong things we've done in life.
Please help me to stop getting so mad at my brother and sister.
Thank you for helping me when times are rough.
Sorry for when I said sorry but did not mean it.
Please help me to know when to say sorry.
Thank you for helping us to save the planet.
Sorry for all the damage we do to earth and its life.
Please help us to think before we do things in life.
Thank you for giving us a life on earth to make mistakes and be forgiven.
Sorry for losing my temper and getting angry at others.
Please help me to feel happier on earth even when times are tough.
Thank you for our animals and the plants.
Sorry that we don't always respect living souls.
Please help us to respect all living things and each and every plant.
Open the Book - Friday 7th February 2020
Once a month, we are lucky enough to welcome our local Open the Book team to our collective worship. Whenever we talk to the children about Collective Worship, so many of them tell us that they really enjoy the Open the Book team coming in and that these are some of their favourite Collective Worships.
The team, along with some help from several children volunteers, perform a different story from the Bible each time. This month, it was the story of Jesus' first miracle - turning water into wine.
The message shared with the children was that when you are finding things difficult or things aren't going your way, it is always good to ask for help.
CHRISTMAS SERVICE - 19th December 2019
The whole school enjoyed taking part in our Christmas Service at St Mary's Church yesterday where the children presented Hosanna Rock - a musical version of the Christmas Story. Groups of children read parts of the story, some acted it out whilst the rest of the school sang songs to accompany them. In addition to this, the Music Group delighted us all with their singing for two of the songs.
Kevin Ross, one of our Governors, closed the service with a heart-felt message thanking us for all that we do and recognising that the future will be bright due to the wonderful children we have at Capel St Mary CEVC School.
HARVEST SERVICE - Friday 11th October
Today, the whole school walked down to St Mary's Church for our Harvest Service. Mr Cornish led the service by reminding us of the importance of Harvest and how our generosity of giving food items helps those in need. Each unit shared something they had been working on in class: Early Years sang a Harvest song and showed us their beautiful artwork and all other units read a selection of the Autumn and Harvest poems they had been writing in class recently to coincide with National Poetry Day.
It was lovely to welcome parents, grandparents and friends at the Church and share our service with you. Thank you for coming along and joining in.
