Year Group Prayers
Throughout the school we are gradually encouraging the children to learn a number of basic prayers which every Catholic child ought to know by the time they leave a Catholic school aged 11. There will be no tests or exams, of course, instead we hope that constant use – both at home and at school – will help the children to establish a repertoire of prayers.
This approach will not exclude other prayers – old favourites and newly composed – but will be intended to provide the basic building blocks of their spiritual life for the future.
In each succeeding year the children will continue to use the prayers they have already learnt in previous years. The more they use these prayers at home as well as at school, the more they will come to know and love them.
