Children are supported in planning and leading liturgies in their class. They are encouraged to think about how they will gather together, they listen carefully to the Word and think about their mission in carrying out the gospel message within their daily lives at both school and home. They develop a wonderful sense of awe and wonder about the small things they can do to help make a big difference. They recognise that praying is one of those things.
Our class liturgies show clear progression in terms of leadership and as the children reach KS2 they become liturgy leaders; leading independently in small groups.
Our prayer life in school
Prayer is central to the life of St Mary’s.
We pray regularly during the day, including: Our Morning Offering, Lunchtime & End of the Day prayers.
We hold sessions called “Be Spirited” sessions throughout the year where the children can participate in prayer and reflection in different and creative ways. These sessions are open to family and friends to attend.
