Church School and Collective Worship
’soar high on wings like eagles’. (Isaiah 40:31)
Woodville C.E. Junior School is part of the Leicester diocese and has close links with St Stephen’s Church Woodville. The children regularly visit St Stephen’s and during their career at Woodville C.E. Junior School have the opportunity to lead acts of collective worship. Fr Tom Barnfather is a regular visitor to school and leads our act of collective worship every month.
Before lunch we celebrate the food we eat by saying grace while during our acts of collective worship we conclude by sharing our School Prayer or the prayer that Jesus taught us (The Lord’s Prayer). Here is our school prayer:
This is our School
Let peace dwell here,
Let the rooms be full of contentment,
Let love abide here,
Love of mankind,
Love of one another,
Love of life itself
And love of God.
Let us remember that
For every hand that builds a house,
Every heart makes a school.
COLLECTIVE WORSHIP : 2021-2022
As we move from the restrictions of the pandemic, each term we take a closer look at one of the values in our Collective Worship, following the 'ROOTS AND FRUITS' scheme.
The values this year are:
Father Tom visits regularly to lead acts of collective worship.
Termly plans for collective worship 2021-22
Celebrate with song
Following the restrictions due to the pandemic we have returned to whole school singing during our acts of collective worship.
Mrs Haywood worked very hard during the pandemic to Keep Woodville Singing! every week on zoom for 30 minutes of song and celebration.
