In Year 5, we have been very busy talking and learning about Lent. On Pancake Tuesday, we were lucky enough to indulge in eating pancakes. On Ash Wednesday, we celebrated Mass with Father John. The sign of the cross was placed on our forehead with ashes and the words “turn away from sin and be faithful to the gospel ”were spoken.
In class we discussed what we could “give up” or different ways of helping others “take up” for Lent. We put our Lenten Promises onto a footprint and have them displayed in the classroom.
