Classroom Prayer Service

This week we gathered as a group to use our prayer bag and listen to child led liturgy.

Our prayer service was led by a pupil, sharing her own creation prayer, giving thanks and praise to God for all that he had created.  The children listened to scripture and responded through prayer.  We finished by singing our song of praise to God that we created together in our RE lesson, which was inspired by St Francis' song of praise.

Guided Meditation- Creation

During our lesson this week, Year 1 explored the Story of Creation through guided meditation.

They thought about all of God's creations and what they were thankful for.

The children created their own prayer tree, with pictures of creation that they had imagined while meditating.

The Exaltation of The Holy Cross

This week, Year 1 joined in the first whole school mass to celebrate The Feast of The Exaltation of the Holy Cross.  During this mass, we recognised the importance of the symbol of the cross within our faith, honoring it as it is a symbol of the life and freedom Jesus gave to us when he died upon it.

He died for our salvation. 

New Beginnings 

As we start our new academic year, Elm Class gathered together in a class prayer service with a focus on 'New Beginnings'.  We thought about this new year an all of the new goals we wished to achieve.  We explored the meaning of our school mission statement and shared ways in which we could live, love and learn together in our new classroom.  We gave thanks to Christ for being at the centre of our learning and asked him to guide us on our new journey.  Our new Liturgy Leads closed our service with a prayer.
