"The prayer space brought the whole school community together - a shared experience for all. It was a time to be still, to reflect on our many blessings and to consider issues affecting others both locally and across the world. I highly recommend that other schools adopt a prayer space time of their own. You won't be disappointed!"Jane Crouch (Head teacher, Oxford)

When the White Witch realised that Edmund's brother, Peter, and his two sisters, Susan and Lucy, had also come to Narnia, she was afraid. 

She persuaded Edmund to betray the others, and he foolishly agreed. Because of his foolish betrayal, she claimed that his life belonged to her - that she had the right to kill him. 

Aslan, the good lion, offered to take Edmund's place. He lay on the stone table and allowed the White Witch to kill him instead. And when Aslan died, the table broke in two. 

When we do or say bad things, or when bad things happen around us, we can feel broken inside. When bad things happen around the world, it can feel like the world is broken too. 

This activity asks pupils what they think is broken in the world, e.g. famine, sickness, war. The pupils can write or draw their hopes or prayers about what needs fixing onto the sheet on the stone table.

This activity was sent to us by our friends at BeSpace, Oxford. They were developed by a local team who are  based in Abingdon. It is also part of our Narnia Series.
