Here are some ideas you could use for prayer spaces at home.

Oak National Academy

Oak National Academy have been creating a new assembly every Thursday. They are all available to watch on their website and cover hope, well-being and discovery so far.

They are also sharing assemblies called Faith at Home, looking at the themes of hope and courage.

 Hope 

Hello everyone smiley

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.

Collective Worship Resources to use at home 

At Shustoke we love getting together for assemblies. Although we aren't at school at the moment, there are still lots of ways you can worship at home if you want to. This might mean singing some of our favourite school hymns. Colours of Day is my favourite - I wonder what yours is? Sing Hosanna perhaps? Or it could mean saying a prayer, reading a Bible story or creating some art. Below are some links with different ways you could worship at home. 

There is a Bible Stories activity pack with lots of fun ideas in. I'm sure you'll recognise lots of the stories from our worship time at school. There are also some ideas about how you could set up a prayer space of your own at home and what you might like to include in your prayers. It is nearly Easter time, so I have also added some art ideas about the Easter story. 

The teachers all miss seeing you in the hall each morning, but hopefully these fun ideas will give you some inspiration for ways to worship at home. 

If you create your own prayer space, piece of art or write your own prayer, send a photograph to the school email address at the bottom of the page. We would love to see it!

I know we really enjoy singing at Shustoke! I thought I'd add one of our assembly songs for you to try at home.

Our School Vision

 

At Shustoke C of E Primary School we aim to begin with the child, encouraging and supporting each individual to become a positive member of the community through childhood and into adult life. We seek to ensure all children enjoy their school experience, developing their confidence, self esteem, gifts and talents through a stimulating curriculum in which they initiate learning as active partners, and rise to challenges giving of their best.

 

We endeavour to prepare the children for the next stage in their education and to make a positive contribution to our rapidly changing world. We believe that all children have the potential to learn, develop academically, socially, morally, spiritually and culturally caring about others and the world in which we live. We work in partnership and welcome all parents, governors, the church and the community in the life of the school, providing education of the highest quality within the context of the Christian belief and practice.

Our School Prayer

 

Dear Lord,

 

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.

 

Amen.
