Year 2 have been working hard over the past couple of weeks learning about Lent. They know that Lent is the preparation time for Easter. The know and understand that during Lent Christians try hard to become closer to God.
The children recalled that Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. They worked in small groups to think about what happens on Ash Wednesday. They role played the giving out of ashes and created their own prayer as the ashes are given;
“Repent and hear God’s Word.”
“Say sorry and believe in the Word.”
“Be sorry, listen to God’s word and spread the message.”
