Our School Prayer
We pray for our school and the chances to make new discoveries every day.
We pray for our friends and families and all the people with whom we share our learning.
Help us to be grateful for all that we have, and to care about those who have less than us.
Help us to challenge prejudice, treating everyone equally and with respect.
When someone hurts or misunderstands us, help us to forgive one another as you have forgiven us.
Help us to care for our world and all the beautiful nature we see, so everyone can enjoy God’s creation.
Thank you for all you have done and given for us.
I wanted to share with you a lovely book that has been created by Katherine Rundell, a children's author. It is called The Book of Hopes and is filled with short stories, poems and illustrations by famous children's authors. I thought you might enjoy reading some of them together and thinking about the message of hope that they send.
I have shared my favourite one - The Hope-o-potamus - below.
I recently noticed the beautiful yellow daffodils on our school field. We planted them together a few years ago and have talked about them being a sign of hope in our assemblies.
I wonder what hope means to you? You might like to draw a picture or create your own story or poem to share. I'd love to see them if you do. You can email them to school.
Have a lovely day.
