“It’s a Big Sing…Liturgy Thing!”
On Wednesday 24th October 2018, all 10 BKCAT Primary Schools joined together at St Wilfrid’s Catholic High School, for the annual ‘Big Sing Liturgy Thing’. The Big Sing is led by Jo Boyce, and the team from CJM Music, who are the inspiration behind a lot of the music we use across our schools – https://www.cjmmusic.com/
Now in its third year, the BKCAT ‘Big Sing, Liturgy Thing’, is organised as a special religious retreat day for the children in Year 6, across our Academy Trust; this year 290 children came together to take part in this wonderful event, with the theme ‘Take Up Your Cross’.
The children experienced working with a live band and musicians with a full, professional sound and light show. CJM also work closely with a Liturgical Dance company called More Than Dance, who have worked with our family of schools for many years.
CJM and More Than Dance, worked together in the morning (the Big Sing) to teach the children the songs and dance moves to present a liturgy in the afternoon. The day was a wonderful way to develop the children’s spirituality in their first half term of Year 6, via music, dance prayer and worship.
