Year 4 - Lent 2015

Year 4 have been to our local church to explore the theme of Lent. We have thought about what happens at this time of year and why it is significant.

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, the day after Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day), and lasts for 40 days.  It is a time when Christians remember the 40 days that Jesus spent in the desert and the temptations offered to him by the devil. Jesus remained strong and true to God the Father and did NOT give in to temptation. It is this strength and belief that we remember when we 'give up' something that we enjoy or make promise to do something to help others.

Class 4 have been reflecting on their inner self and their personal strengths and weaknesses and have created a Tree of Promises to display their own Lent promises.
