Light the Candle Group

The Light the Candle group is made up of children in Year 2-Year 6 who discuss the teaching of RE and Collective Worship in our school. We help lead prayers during Collective Worship and help to create prayer spaces around school. As a group we created a prayer which we say at the beginning of all our Collective Worship times.

Dear Lord,
We light the candle to show that you are here.
Help us to listen and learn about you.

We meet on a fortnightly basis with Miss Coe, Mrs Kemp and Mrs Burke to create resources for prayer spaces and to discuss what we enjoy about Collective Worship in our school. We also share ideas for improvement.

Currently our Year 6 children have achieved their Lighting the Candle bronze and silver award. Our Year 5 children have achieved their bronze award. We our continuing to work towards our silver and gold awards respectively.

This year we are focusing on:

  • Leading more of Collective Worship times; building up to leading an assembly with the support of Miss Coe, Mrs Kemp and Mrs Burke.
  • Developing how we reflect in our classrooms.
  • Creating a school prayer book with prayers from children across the school.
