On Wednesday 5th March the children from Years 1-4 had an Ash Wednesday Liturgy in the Church. We listened to Bible readings, said prayers, read out our Lenten Promises and also received our cross of ash on our forehead. We spent time with God, asking him to help us get ready for Easter throughout the 40 days of Lent. We will try to be more like Jesus as we prepare for celebrating his death and resurrection at Easter.
During week 6 we will be focussing on Lent during Religious Education and some other integrated subject areas such as Art, Social Sciences, Story Writing and Reading.
We will cover:
Lesson 1: Lent is the season to get ready for Easter:
LO 1: recognise Lent as the season for getting ready for Easter.
LO 2: identify ways people get ready for Easter.
Lesson 2: Getting ourselves ready for Easter:
LO 1: recognise that people get ready for Easter by loving God and others.
LO 2: name ways people can be more loving during Lent.
Lesson 3: Ash Wednesday is the first day of the Lent season:
LO1: name the first day of Lent
LO2: recognise that Ash Wednesday ritual of the signing with ashes.
