During lent, we think about Jesus and why he spent 40 days and nights in the desert. We use His example to analyse our own lives and think about ways in which we can be better people. Each Wednesday, a Key Stage 2 class focus on an aspect of lent and what it means to us.
We begin with Year 6 who explain how Jesus responded to temptation in the desert and how that applies to our modern lives.
Year 5 children explain the meaning of John 9:1-12 which tells us about Jesus healing a man who was born blind. They explain how our lives can change if we open our eyes to God.
Year 4 remind us of John 4:5-15 when Jesus meets a woman at a well. They explain that faith is essential to our spiritual life, just as water is necessary for survival.
Year 3 tackle the tricky subject of the transfiguration of Christ. They do this by drawing a parallel between God's brilliance and the life giving properties of the sun.
These short liturgies are thoughtful, prayerful and a fitting way to think about Jesus and his ministry as we approach one of the most significant events of the liturgical calendar.
