This is OUR School,
Let peace dwell here.
Let the rooms be full of contentment.
Let love abide here,
Love of one another,
Love of mankind,
Love of life itself
And love of God.
Let us remember
That as many hands make a house
So many hearts make a school.
Forest School Prayer

Dear Lord we thank you for, the moments of peace when we enjoy the joyful magic of the woodland birds: the lively blackbird, the friendly robin and the busy woodpecker.
Dear Lord we thank you for, the chance to create with our friends: art from nature, homely shelters…and the creations you can be proud of forever.
Dear Lord we thank you for, the enduring silhouettes of these towering trees: standing strong like fearsome guardians of our stunning setting.
Dear Lord we thank you for, the trust we put in one another when using tools and lighting fires: taking risks that we couldn’t take in the classroom
Dear Lord we thank you for, the hope that the changing seasons bring: the myriad of vibrant colours in autumn; the calm and serenity of winter; the bounce and vitality of spring and the light and joy of summer
Dear Lord we thank you for, the friendships that bond us: the feeling of family, the sense of belonging as we share memorable moments whatever the weather
Dear Lord we thank you for the reverence we experience in your natural world: the beauty we see, the harmonies we hear and the sense of awe and wonder we feel here
