Join Tabz (David Taberner), Hettie and Emily as they bring us another video assembly / collective worship on the theme of Trust. Safe Space is a project of Southport & Area Schools Worker Trust, creating a safe space to explore the big issues of life and faith in local schools.
Learning OBJECTIVES and curricular links:
- To widen understanding of the Christian practices and discipleship origins.
- To implement widened understanding through identifying people we can trust and activities we trust to be wholesome regarding our mental health.
- To see an impact in the how we put our trust in each other and how we can act in a trustworthy manor.
Intro: Tabz welcomes Hettie and Emily who introduce the assembly.
Game: Bring me a… | Children race Tabz to find the objects that Hettie asks for. (If in School, one child could go at a time and you could pre-hide the items in the room: pen, shoe, toothpaste, spoon, game).
Story: ‘Come and follow me’ from Bob Hartman’s Rhyming Bible, based upon Jesus calling His disciples found in Matthew 4:18-22.
Game: Do this… do that | If Hettie gives an action and says ‘do this’ then the children copy, if Hettie says ‘do that’, then they don’t copy.
Thought: Reflections on what and who we can trust in this current time of worry and uncertainty.
Challenge: Encouragement to talk to someone you trust when you are worried.
ONE. SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT
This session reflects upon the Christian Bible story of Jesus choosing His disciples and pupils are encouraged to reflect on whether Jesus is someone that they can put their trust in.
TWO. MORAL DEVELOPMENT
Pupils are encouraged to consider themselves and those around them and think about who is trustworthy. They are prompted to acknowledge their worries and who they could share them with.
THREE. SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT
The children are invited to reflect personally and share their worries with someone that they trust.
FOUR. CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT
Our country, although historically a Christian nation, is now home to many people of differing cultures, backgrounds and beliefs. In these sessions, pupils have the opportunity to celebrate and reflect respectfully on our similarities, differences and the role faith plays in the lives of people around the world.
