Prayer Spaces 2019
We engaged in lots of prayer space project activities.
We created a prayer wall to express our hopes, fears, gratitude and requests to God.
"Be still and know that I am God." Psalm 46 v 10 We spent time in a calm, peaceful 'just be' prayer space.
We thought about our lives, counted our blessings and identified the things we were grateful for. We wrote on a card and posted it in the 'Thank you God' box.
Each box contained books about a certain value. We sat on the bean bags and read stories about truthfulness, respect, forgiveness...
We thought about things that we wanted to say sorry for and then we wrote a sorry prayer and pegged it up.
We took a love heart sweet. We prayed for someone we love as we ate the sweet.
We know that kindness leads to strong friendships. On a jigsaw piece, we drew a picture of how we can show kindness to others and stuck them all together. If we work together, we can make the world a better place.
We looked inside little eggs and reflected on how each object relates to Holy week. The year four children talked to the younger children about what the objects represent.
We retold the Easter story using wooden egg people or velcro figures.
We made bead crosses and thought about Jesus' love for us.
We know that sometimes friendships break down. We built friendship bridges out of the lego.
Prayer Spaces 2018
The children explored lots of Christian values at different activity stations. Look at the photos.
Year 4 perform 'Roll Back the Stone'
We performed 'Roll Back the Stone' to the whole school and our parents. We told everyone about the very special events of Holy week from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday.
Year 4 attend a Christingle Service at Liverpool Cathedral
On Thursday January 18th 2018, our Year 4 children took part in a very special service. We had already learnt about Christingles in our R.E. lessons and this learning was consolidated. We loved joining in with lively songs such as 'My Lighthouse' and 'Our God is a Great Big God'. Rev Kate Bottley asked us all about the parts of the Christingle but she forgot to tell us about the orange. To our surprise, she inflated her orange outfit to make herself the orange. She told us that as the red ribbon reminds us that we are all circled by the love of Christ, may we share his love with others.
In July, some of our children attended an ethos conference at a school in Bolton. They explored lots of Christian values through creative activities. The highlight of the day was the releasing of doves as we all said prayers of peace for our world.
