Sensory Prayer Day


The Lord’s Prayer Day


On Wednesday 13th November all of the children at Bishop Lonsdale from Nursery to Year 6 took part in our Lord’s Prayer Day.  During the day the children had the opportunity to learn about the different sections of the Lord’s Prayer through drama, art, discussions and prayer. 

The day was planned, organised and run by the children who attended the Silver Worship Club and they were supported by some children in Year 6.


Prayer Spaces 


1/ Our Father Who Art In Heaven


The children were asked to think about the qualities of a parent or carer and then related those qualities to God who lives in Heaven.

On a foot in pairs the children were asked to write down the name or draw a picture of somebody who cares for them and write a sentence to say how they care for them.

The feet were then stuck on the wall near the prayer space

During the session the children read ‘Footprints in the Sand’


2/Hallowed Be Thy Name


The children talked about how God’s name is special and Holy and should never be used in a negative way.

They then thought about:

-Why a person’s name is special and important

-How they would you feel if their name was used in a horrible way

-What they should do if people are unkind to them  

The children then drew a self-portrait on a hand and wrote a sentence or a word to say why they are special.

The hands were placed on the wall


3/ Your Kingdom Come Yours Will Be Done On Earth As It Is In Heaven


The children looked at pictures of our world and a globe and thought about the good and bad things that are happening in the world today.   They then thought about what the world would be like if it was more like Heaven.

The children then drew a picture of what they thought Earth would be like if it was more like Heaven.


4/ Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread


The children thought about why Jesus compared himself to bread.

They talked about how bread is a type of food which is essential for life.  Without food we would not have the energy to do all the things we do.  Christians believe that Jesus gives us the strength to do all the things that we want to do.

On an outline of a piece of bread the children wrote a thank you prayer, which was then placed in a bread bin.


5/ Forgive Us Our Trespasses As We Forgive Those Who Trespass Against Us


The children thought about the importance of saying sorry and forgiving others.

The children wrote down something that they had done wrong on a piece of paper and then screwed this up and put it in the bin.

They then wrote a sentence about why it is important that we forgive each other and always say sorry on a love heart and these were stuck around the bin.


6/Lead Us Not Into Temptation But Deliver Us From Evil


The children talked about the importance of always remembering what is right and wrong and always trying hard to do the right things even when our friends or other people might want us to do the wrong thing.

The children then listened to some quiet music and looked at some pictures.  They thought about all the wrong things that are happening in the world and about what we could do to make those things better.

On a post it note they wrote down or draw a picture of what we think that they could do to make the world a better place.


7/For Thine Is The Kingdom The Power And The Glory


The children took it in turns to wear a crown and they thought about what they would do if they were a King or Queen to help make this world be a better place.


8/ Amen

This means yes I agree

The children thought about our world and our school why they are special.

On a strip of coloured paper they wrote down a word or phrase to describe our world and our school

We then created a whole school ‘Wordle’ for the world and one for our school.   


During the day all the children designed stones for our Memorial Garden.  Three winning designs were chosen from each class.

These are the winning designs







All the children also wrote a prayer during the day.  All of the children’s prayers were put together to create a whole school prayer book which is displayed in our school prayer space.
