The children in school have learnt about the significance of the Armistice agreement signed on 11th November 1918 and about why some people choose to wear poppies. To coincide with this, work our Leaders of Worship Team helped each class to plan and design a Remembrance Prayer space and these were installed in St Mary’s Church for the whole community to use.
Class Swale -Thoughtful Playdough. Children were encouraged to think of someone or something that they were grateful for. They then had to use the playdough to make a model of this and had time to talk about their feelings.
Class Wear ‘s prayer space focused on the ‘The Empty Chair’. This focused on lost loved ones and symbolised the empty chair they leave at the table of our lives. Class Wear pupils wrote down some very thoughtful prayers.
Class Tees Remembrance Ribbons. This focused on world events and issues like the Ukraine War, and natural disasters such as forest fires and flooding. Children considered who had been hurt, who is helping and what or who may have caused this. They wrote prayers and thoughts onto labels and added coloured ribbons of remembrance.
Please try to call in to St Marys Church to see what the children have done. The prayer spaces are there for all to use.
All are welcome to join in with the Remembrance Service in church on Sunday 13th November
