Our Reflective Day - The Lord's Prayer
Today we had a day off timetable where we found out the meaning behind the Lord's Prayer and also learnt to recite it. In Miss Stephen's class the children listened to different versions of the Lord's Prayer being sung. They created art work as they listened quietly and reflected on it. They learnt the prayer using actions.
In Trendle Class they drew picture on 'our daily bread' of what God has provided for us and then ate it. They also thought about 'forgive us our sins' and wrote on a tissue paper person something we needed to forgive someone for and the put it in water and watched it fade anyway. This is what happens when we forgive people or when God forgives us. It makes us feel better. Finally Abbey class enjoyed playing fun games to help them remember the prayer.
A positive, purposeful and enthusiastic atmosphere
