This morning in Worship, we came together as a whole school to share the learning we have done on this half term’s Christian Value, forgiveness.
Each class presented something from their class Worship to the rest of the school, outlining what we have learnt about forgiveness and what this means for us in our everyday lives.
Acorn Class talked about the Teaspoon Prayer (tsp) which teaches us a simple but effective way of structuring our prayers by saying thankyou, sorry and please.
Oak Class taught us how to say Jesus is Alive in a range of different languages, linking to their learning about Pentecost.
Hazel Class shared with us the work they had done on Pentecost and showed us the beautiful flame they had made by drawing around their hands and writing ‘Jesus is alive’ in a range of languages. This flame is now on display behind our Worship table.
Willow, Beech and Holly Classes talked about what it means to forgive and be forgiven, times that they have experienced this and how it made them feel.
Sycamore Class told us about the story of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S.Lewis and its similarities to the story of the Prodigal Son. Edmund is like the son who is tempted and does wrong by his family.
Aslan the lion represents God. He forgives Edmund and says that what he did need never be spoken of again.
Edmund’s family forgive him too and welcome him back with love and care.
We can learn so much from this story.
It was wonderful to see and hear all of the learning that has taken place this half term. We are all going to try very hard to remember what we have learnt and act on it in the future.
