Prayer is an important part of life at Whitewater C of E Primary School. The children are given a variety of opportunities to write and read prayers as part of school life, including writing prayers to be put in our prayer box and then read out in collective worship. The children explore prayer in different ways, including through the use of clay, stones and through teaspoons as you can see to the right! Below are three prayers we use daily in school.
Our School Prayer
Heavenly Father, we thank you for our school.
Give us every day the strength to follow your teachings
And develop a never-ending love of learning.
Help us to value one another and be good strong friends.
Guided by your Spirit, help us to be the best we can.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord and friend.
The EYFS and KS1 Lunchtime Prayer
The Lord is good to me,
And so I thank the Lord.
For giving me the things I need,
The sun and the rain and the apple seed.
The Lord is good to me.
The KS2 Lunchtime Prayer
Thank you for the world so sweet.
Thank you for the food we eat.
Thank you for the birds that sing.
Thank you, God, for everything.
