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 a 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.

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.

Harvest Appeal

Stuart from the Local Foodbank visited our school on Wednesday 12th October to launch our Harvest Foodbank Appeal.  He shared with us the importance of supporting our local community and living the Gospel values.



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
