At Southborough Church of England Primary School our vision and values weave through our
Collective Worship provision throughout the year.
Each term we will explore one of our six values and how they connect with our collective worship themes.
We will also reflect on what we can do to act as beacons of light at school, as part of our community and in response to what is happening in the world.
This term we will be focusing on our value of
Our Linked Bible text is the Christmas story
We always start our collective worship by lighting a candle
and saying these words:
Jesus the Light of the World is here.
Lord Jesus shine upon us.
During the first half of this term, we will be exploring some of the proverbs and wise sayings of Solomon taken from the book of Proverbs. It is called ‘taking it back to the playground’ because we will be looking at how these ancient wise sayings could be taken ‘back to the playground’, lived out every day and still be relevant to us now. There will also be opportunities for us to consider how our behaviour and attitude could alter if we reflected and pondered on these ‘pearls of wisdom’.

Our themes are taken from the Diocese of Rochester plans.
We will be continuing to explore the stories from the Old Testament in our Big Bible Storybook focusing on Abraham and Moses, before sharing the Christmas story from the New Testament.
We will also be thinking about Remembrance and Anti-Bullying week at the same time as the rest of the school in an age-appropriate way.
