This week, the children in both Year Two classes have been thinking all about ‘The Annunciation’ and ‘The Visitation’ stories. As a class, we decided to participate in a collective worship to show what we were thinking and feeling about the stories we had heard. The children gathered around the prayer focus point and sat quietly for a few minutes to just gather their thoughts. Then, we read the Annunciation story and responded by discussing what had happened in the story.
We thought about the special news which Mary had been given and how it would have been such a joyful time for Mary. We took a moment to think about people who might not feel as joyful at Christmas as they may feel lonely or not have anybody to share Christmas with. As a class, we decided to write prayers to an elderly person in a care home to show them that they are in our thoughts during Christmas! Next week, we will be delivering them to a care home in our local area.
