Open the Book
Open the Book is an organisation which re-tells bible stories during school assemblies. Usually teams are made up from local churches but here at St Nic's we have our own parent-led team.
We aim to bring bible stories to life on a Thursday morning with a bit of humour, music, silly costumes and props! We have been running Open the Book assemblies at St Nicolas' for over two years now and hope that the children have been sharing what they've seen. If you are interested in contributing to the team (acting, narrating or making props) please contact Mrs Sharp.
We love to get the children involved in our Open the Book Assemblies so look out for the 'I helped Open the Book' sticker if your child has taken part.
We have an active prayer group at St Nicolas led by one of the parents at school. You are very welcome to join us on Thursday mornings from approx 8.15-8.30. Meet in the foyer at 8.15. Contact Nicki Allen at school if you'd like more information.
If you have any prayer requests either regarding school life or from a personal point of view, please post them into the box in the foyer. Feel free to do this anonymously if you wish. Requests are dealt with on a confidential basis. The prayer team believe this is an important way to support our community.
In addition, we support a prayer lunchtime every half term where the school music room / the field becomes a prayer room for children to write or draw prayers. This was instigated after our first 'Pray for your School' day in November 2009.
Our School Prayer
Thankyou God for our school and for freedom to learn.
Help us make it a place of happiness, thankfulness and peace;
A place where friendships are made and respect is shown to all;
A place where we can have courage to do our best;
A place where we can be honest with each other and with ourselves;
And a place where we all work together to be the best that we can.
The Lords Prayer
Our Father who art in Heaven
Hallowed be thy Name
Thy Kingdon come
Thy will be done in earth
As it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive them that trespass against us
And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
For thine is the kingdom
The power and the glory
For ever and ever
