At least teachers are not required to attend.
We are a voluntary aided church school and each class has their own prayer. In Y3/4 we say:
God be in my head and in my understanding,
God be in my eyes and in my seeing
God be in my eyes and in my speaking
God be in my heart and in in my thinking.
We don't say the last line - can't fully remember but it's something about being at my death!
It's a good, calming way to end.
I do like NOMAD's prayer - I will use that in my collective worship.
we say this prayer at the end of everyday
when i'm very quiet and still i think how lovely God must be i just say thank you in my heart for all his love and care for me.
I also often get the chn to sit quietly and do a couple of mins quiet reflection.
We are cathloic school.
Unfortunately the end of religious worship in most schools has meant the demise of hymn singing, and many have beautiful words and melodies. What a shame!
We used to sing a prayer that started 'Now the day is over' but I can't remember the rest or whether it was religious or not. It was a pretty tune though, nice and calm.
<ol>[*]Found it We only sang a couple of verses though![*]<li class="first">Now the day is over,
Night is drawing nigh,
Shadows of the evening
Steal across the sky.[*][*]Jesus, give the weary
Calm and sweet repose;
With Thy tend’rest blessing
May mine eyelids close.[*][*]Grant to little children
Visions bright of Thee;
Guard the sailors tossing
On the deep, blue sea.[*][*]Comfort those who suffer,
Watching late in pain;
Those who plan some evil
From their sin restrain.[*][*]Through the long night watches
May Thine angels spread
Their white wings above me,
Watching round my bed.[*][*]When the morning wakens,
Then may I arise
Pure, and fresh, and sinless
In Thy holy eyes.</ol>
