"The Prayer Space enables students to learn from RE, rather than just to learn about RE. The different ways for students to engage with prayer, whilst in the Prayer Space, enables all young people to have a fresh understanding of what prayer means, rather than seeing it just in a traditionally dry way."Mr Perry (Head teacher, Romford)

We don’t get to choose the village, town or city that we grow up in, that choice is made for us. Some people will end up loving the place that they grow up in, whilst others might hate it; most of us will have both positive and negative thoughts and memories about the area we grew up in.

This activity encourages students to think about the place that they live and to consider their feelings towards it. Some of those thoughts will be positive, but perhaps some of them will be negative. Students will get the opportunity to write down their feelings, reflections and prayers towards or for the area onto either a model of a local landmark, or a photo or map of the area.
