Collective Worship week of 20th July
This is our last week of term, so we will be wishing our Y6 Leavers well as we say goodbye and asking God to care for each one of us over the summer.
We look forward to welcoming everyone back in September.
Monday 20th July
You are special.
If you were to plan a really special occasion (when we’re not in the COVID-restrictions) what would it be like? Where would you hold the event? Would there be food? Who would come?
Maybe you’d get out your recipe books and cook up your favourites.
Here’s a rather unusual recipe:
1 tbsp sternness
A pinch of perseverance
Does that describe anyone you know?
25g good listening
3 tbsp encouragement
A sprinking of toughness
Is anyone you know like this?
What would the recipe for you look like? What are your best features? What makes you, you?
When Jesus was on earth, he understood the importance of children. There is a bible story where Jesus’ disciples tried to send the children away from him, but Jesus told them off and pointed out that children are very important.
Here’s a video of the story.
This week, we’re going to be thinking about all the reasons we have to be proud of our Y6s and of ourselves.
Thank you that you made each one of us, and that we are all different.
Help us to respect the people we are, and the uniqueness of others.
Thank you that we are all equally important to you.
Help us to be the best we can be, to take pride in ourselves and to appreciate others.
Tuesday 21st July
Yesterday after school we celebrated our Y6 Leavers event. You can watch the videos here.
A message to our Y6s from all of us at school.
If you were born on 21st July 2009, you would be 4015 days old.
And if you’d started The Beacon in Reception, and attended every day, you’d have spent 1365 days in school. Ok, so Coronavirus hit this year so you haven’t been able to be here every day, but that’s still 1294 days.
That is 34% of your life so far.
Whilst you’ve been here you have grown in so many ways. We’ve watched you becoming your own self. All the different staff who’ve been here with you have done their very best to help, support and guide you to be the very best you can be so you can learn to live life in all its fullness.
You all have some wonderful memories of The Beacon, memories which will always have the power to make you smile or laugh.
We’ve shared some of our memories with you.
We are proud of you.
Now it’s your turn.
Be confident in the person you are and go on out there to face the successes and challenges of life with a smile.
Take your place in your new school knowing that you have the skills to be a successful learner.
Make a difference in the world – be a responsible citizen with the courage to make a difference that improves our society, protects our environment.
Teach others to live life in all its fullness by being appreciative and respectful of other people’s uniqueness and their talents, and remember to celebrate your own.
Have a look at this page where you will be able to see our Y6 Leavers films as soon as we post them!
