Spirituality Day

We took part in a whole school Spirituality and Prayer Day today!

We started the day all together in the hall and Mr Thomas led our worship. We sang ‘God behind, God beside, God ahead’ and talked about what this means.

We then had a visitor in class who shared the story ‘Tales’ and we learnt about a lost meerkat. We had to find baby meerkats around the classroom before discussing feelings and finishing with a song.

We enjoyed looking back (God behind) at photographs from our learning in Reception throughout the year. We discussed our ‘Special Moments’ and how we felt. We drew and wrote these on our own footprints which are now displayed in the school hall.

We wrote our own prayeroplanes! We could pray for anything (God beside) and these are some of our ideas:

I pray that I can always help people – Isaac

I pray that everyone is happy and joyful – Scarlett

I pray that I get better at gymnastics – Alyssa

I pray that I can play in Year 1 – Harley

We folded our prayers into paper aeroplanes to throw them in an end of the day sharing assembly.

We gathered around the Forest School fire with Mr Cross to talk about our future (God ahead) and talked about what we might like to be when we grow up.

‘I would like to be a ballerina and if I get any spare time I’d like to be an author’ – Charlotte 

We had a very thoughtful day.
