Today Year 4 spent time thinking about the meaning of the Ash cross we are given during the Ash Wednesday service.

We looked at scripture references to dust in the Old Testament and how the ash symbolises creation and also death at the end of our lives.

This is why the priest says ‘For you were made from dust, and to dust you will return.’

We adorned each other with the cross whilst saying these words.
