Tuesday 23rd February
In RE we are thinking about Lent. Did you have pancakes last week on Shrove Tuesday? Lent began after this. Watch the following short video clip to find out about Lent and why it is such a special time. During Lent, Christians try to follow Jesus more closely - maybe by saying prayers, being kind or looking after others. See if you can complete this activity during Lent this year.
Ask a grown up to help you to draw a cross (use the paper in your maths books) that is made up of 40 squares. (Can you remember why the number 40 is significant during Lent?) Keep this cross throughout Lent and each time you carry out an act of kindness or say a prayer, colour a square in (maybe you could use purple as this is the colour for this liturgical season.) See if you can colour all of the squares in during the period of Lent.
