Worship and Reflection

In school, we often talk about the comfort and peace that reflection can bring. Some people choose to use this time for prayer. On this page we are building resources and ideas that can be used to help you to do this away from school in your own homes and quiet spaces.

Sometimes when life feels confusing, difficult or sad, we can help each other by remembering some of the things we do in school including our special school prayers and hymns. These can give us strength, hope and comfort to help us feel better. You may like to spend some time praying and reflecting with your family, on your own, silently or praying out loud.

There are three main reasons people choose to pray: to say thank you, sorry or please. On this page, you will find resources to help you and your child with these prayers and also some activities to promote reflection, giving thanks and being reflective.

Talk to children about simple prayers, like what they are thankful for. For example, encourage them to start with, “I thank God for my family”, or “I pray for my pets”. You may like to use some of the prayer activities to encourage discussion. Praying could be at any time during the day, or when experiencing a special, spiritual moment, such as watching the sunrise, listening to a favourite piece of music or whilst focusing on a flickering candle. Children may like to pray when drawing a picture, whilst out walking or being around nature.
