Assembly – fishers of men

In assembly this afternoon we explored this weekend’s Gospel taken from Mark 1: 14-20. Joe shared this beautiful gospel passage with us and read it expertly.

We thought about the job of the fishermen. It isn’t an easy job to cast out your net and fill it with fish. You have to know how fish behave, where and when you’ll find them and Mr White demonstrated how difficult it was to throw the large net so that it hit the surface correctly!

We thought about what it meant to be a ‘fisher of men’ and how the disciples could cast out their net to capture others. We then thought about what we could do to be ‘fishers of men’ today in our school and in our homes!
Reception class took the net with them so that they could practise casting it out.
Isn’t it great that we all have such an important role to play as modern day disciples? Let’s cast our nets out as wide as we can and as often as we can. Good luck!!!
