Beckermet C of E Primary School

Let your light shine

Collective Worship


Collective worship is much valued feature of the school’s daily life at Beckermet Primary School.  It is an invitational,  joyful, reflective and  thought provoking experience for everyone. Planning ensures that we think deeply about a range of Bible stories, festivals, global issues etc. all of which are underpinned by important Christian beliefs and values.  The school worships both collectively and in primary phase groups on a daily basis.  Our friends and families are invited weekly to join us in celebrating all our successes showing how we can all shine in many ways.

Worship happens both inside and outside of the classroom and dedicated times such as our prayer space day enhance the importance of how prayer can make a positive impact to one’s life. We also worship with the local community at special times of year in our local Church - St John's.

Pupils love singing, particularly action songs, acting out stories, answering interesting questions and they are highly appreciative of the contributions of local clergy and other visitors.  The enjoy organising and delivering their class worship choosing music, reading reflecting on the big questions raised during worship.

Pupils gain a good understanding of the purpose of prayer, both through writing prayers and interacting with activities around school or in the grounds outside. Use of reflective spaces in classrooms and outdoor areas encourages pupils to reflect or pray. 

Class reflection areas provide a space for children to be quiet and peaceful. They provide positive affirmations, challenge thoughts and feelings and incorporate prayer in many different ways. Our reflection spaces, always include a variety of Bibles and faith stories, artefacts and resources to support reflection and prayer.

Advent 2023

During Advent our school focus was LOVE.  we explored the true meaning of love in many ways. 

We joined weekly with our friends and family to celebrate the season of Advent. 

Our travelling crib visited every home in our school to share in the true meaning of Christmas.

Our prayer stations travelled around school allowing us time to pause, reflect, ask questions and pray.

We celebrated with friends enjoying our parties and Christmas meal and so much more.

Remembrance November 2023

Today we joined together as a family to remember.  We remembered all those who have been affected by war.

We hope and pray that love can bring peace in our world.

Harvest Festival

We joined together in Church alongside Reverend Rachel to celebrate our Harvest Festival.  Every child let their light shine during our celebration.

The children created a fantastic harvest celebration sharing their thoughts and prayers about the Harvest.

Reception class celebrated the harvest and gave thanks.

Year 1 and 2 shared how important the harvest is but sadly not everyone has a good harvest and we must share and care for each other during these challenging times.

Year 3 and 4 shared how others around the world celebrate the harvest and wrote psalms of thanks.

Year 5 and 6 talked about the impact of the harvest in our own country and in our own families.

Proverbs 3:27 says, ‘Whenever you possibly can, do good to those who need it.’

We can all make a positive difference to the people around us.


Harvest Appeal

Stuart from the Local Foodbank visited us to launch our Harvest Appeal.

He shared the importance of how if we work together, we can make a huge difference in the lives of others living in our community.  Thank you to all of our children and families who donated this year.  You have let your light shine and shown tru love and compassion for others.


Welcome Service

As a school community we gathered at St John's Church to celebrate and give thanks for the up and coming new school year but also to welcome our new children to our school.

Year 6 led us in prayer and celebration.  They shared how they were going to help our new children "Let their Light Shine" in their own special way.

International Day of Peace

In school today we gathered together to celebrate International Day of Peace.  We embrace change and pray for peace in our world.  We explored the meaning of true peace and understand that in order to find it, it must begin with us.

We celebrated through song and prayer with our friends and families.

We can make a difference!

Green Day

We have joined together to support our local Foodbank and share the gift of love by giving with a cheerful heart.

Our Beckermet Bees have worked together to sell raffle tickets and sell cakes in support of the Foodbank.

Many thanks to our families and friends who bought tickets and joined us for coffee and cake served by our wonderful Beckermet Working Bees.

We know we can make a difference in the lives of others.

St John the Baptist Feast Day

Our beautiful church is named after the St John the Baptist.  We celebrated his feast day in school.  We learned lots of exciting things about John and how other people across the world celebrate his feast day.

We have created moving story books, birthday cards, leaflets, water colour paintings, stain glass windows and so much more celebrating this amazing man.

Holy Week

During the lead up to Holy Week our children led us in daily worship following the story of Jesus and how the Easter story impacts on our daily lives today.


During Advent we joined together to get ready for the coming of Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Harvest Service

We joined with our family and friends to celebrate Harvest at St John's Church.  We wrote our own prayers and poems and presented how important the Harvest is to us as a community but also to our global community.  we celebrated the Harvest of Life.

Today we all attended St John's Church alongside Reverend Dorling to welcome our new children to the family of Beckermet.  Our buddies welcomed and shared how they would look after their new friends and support them in their new school.

The children 'Let their Lights Shine' in so many ways.  Leading the worship, reflecting through prayer and celebrating through song.

Welcome to our school !


Year 2 Letting Their Light Shine

As we begin our final week at school we remember and celebrate.  Jesus is in all of us, so every time we meet someone and welcome them, we are welcoming Jesus.  We are asked by God to treat all people as we would like to be treated.

Let us try to welcome all people as we would welcome Jesus- with love, kindness and respect.

Our Father

Reverend Riley visited school today and she introduced us to Maximus the church mouse.  She told us a story about Maximus and how he learned the Our Father prayer.

Reverend Riley then played a song on the accordion, and we joined with her to sing the prayer of the Our Father.



'Fifty days of waiting' by Vicky Scott

Sitting, standing, pacing, waiting,
Talking, pausing, laughing, hating,
Doubting, hoping, gazing, frowning,
Frozen, silent, somehow drowning.

Captivated, hushed, stunned and dazed, 
Transfixed, terrified and amazed.
A wind so strong my ears feel pain, 
Tongues of fire lash down like rain.

What is happening to us here?
Language unknown is somehow clear.
What is this visit from on high?
New boldness, so no longer shy.

People staring and looking amused,
As if we’re drunk, misled, confused.
Suddenly one stood to explain,
That Jesus left and the Spirit came
