Collective Worship

St Michael’s Church Of England School
'Learning together through love, friendship, forgiveness and faith'
Welcome to our Collective Worship page. Collective worship is our time as a school family to gather everyone together for the opportunity to grow spiritually and to have time to reflect. Please see the links for our Prayers and Favourite School Songs so that we can continue to worship at home.
Every day we hold an act of worship:
Monday - Roots and Fruits
Tuesday - Class Worship
Wednesday - Singing 
Thursday - Vicar
Friday - Celebration
Monday - Roots and Fruits:

Shahne Vickery has been joined by international storyteller Bob Hartman as well as poets, artists, photographers and a team of educational professionals to produce this inspirational collective worship resource. 12 Christian values are explored in a 2 year programme of fully worked, creative material.

Clearly rooting all learning in the Bible and the Church year, Roots and Fruits is designed to support SIAMS requirements and meets the criteria set out in the Evaluation Schedule.

Each assembly follows the pattern established in earlier Imaginor publications and includes the four elements of WelcomeLearningReflecting and Responding – which match the WindowsMirrorsDoors strategy that has proved so popular with teachers.

The worship is enriched by the use of:

  • Quotes and questions to encourage deeper thinking about each value
  • Photographs and posters to root the teaching in the everyday experience of children
  • Stories, poems and art, much of which has been especially commissioned for this book
  • Prayers and guided reflections from traditional and contemporary authors
  • Fruits from the Roots – ideas to develop the theme of the worship through the week
The 12 Christian values we follow over the two year cycle are:
