Monks Risborough CE Primary School

School Worship

Collective Worship 

Monks enjoys strong links with the local church and our RE teaching follows the Diocesan scheme of work from the Oxford Diocesan Trust.
We believe that RE develops in pupils a sense of community and belonging. It helps the children to grow, share, understand and respectfully challenge, and be challenged by, people of different lifestyles, beliefs and practices.

 

The whole school joins together each day after lunch for collective worship. Every Monday, James (our local vicar) leads the worship focusing on one of our school values. This value is then followed up in lesson time as children think about how they can reflect this value in their behaviour. Our subsequent worships for the week follow this school value too. 

Children's Prayers


The following prayers have been written by our school children during our daily worship time:

Autumn Term 2

Christian Value: Love
Thursday 24th November

The focus of today's worship was a traditional tale called 'The Good Kings'
www.what-buddha-said.net/library/DPPN/r/rajovada_jat_151_334.htm

Dear God,
Thank you for the lovely world around us, all the nature and plants.  We will respect them and they will respect us.  We can make them homes so they can live happy lives like us.  If we all have a happy life then everybody will have a happy life.
Amen

'Year 3 Child'

Father God,
Bless those who feel unloved and not properly cared for and let us not get angry and hurt each other.  If people hurt you don't hurt them back and a negative thought is a sin in itself.  Let us think positively and not negatively.  Don't let us all be the same person, let us be different and have different personalities. To show love, you don't treat people differently if that isn't how you want to be treated.
Amen

'Year 6 Child' 
Monday 21st November

The focus of our worship today was St.Martin

Dear God,
Thank you for Children in Need who have helped save hundreds of people.  Help us to raise money for other children suffering from pain.  We wish to help those who are less fortunate than ourselves.  Children in Need reminded us that just £1.00 can change a child's life.
Amen

'Year 5 Child'

Dear God,
Please help people and my dog, Cainy, because he is very old and he has 3 legs and help people and animals that are old.  If animals are hurt, help them.  Let people survive where ever they are.
Amen

The focus of our worship was the story of 'The Lost Son'

Dear Lord,
Let's think of those who are foolish and selfish to others.  When people come back, really respect them in your heart.
Amen

'Year 6 child'

Father God, 
Thank you for our farmers that give our essential food, our families and friends.  Help us to use what we have so that we can carry on having hope.
​Amen

Dear God,
Thank you for love, and please help us to be kind to people and be a good samaritan.  Help us to show the value of love and to be respectful to each other.
Amen

'Year 6 child'

Thursday 10th November

Father God,
Thank you for Love and values, for school and to learn things, for all people even if they have different beliefs to our own.  Father, we pray to help those in need.
Amen
