The season of Lent is crucial for our children to foster an understanding of the passage of time through the Church's year. It is a key time of preparation before the holiest Feast of Easter.
In the Junior School the children have an different target for each week. In the first week they made promises to spend less time online. In the second week our pledge is to try to spend more time outdoors - which can be difficult in the spring showers!
The remaining targets are as follows:
Week 3: family time
Week 4: time for scripture - can you read on of the Gospels all the way through?
Week 5: time for prayer - how can you get closer to God?
Week 6: a time for charity
Please encourage your child and talk about these tasks with them.
