Last year our Values Council decided that they would like to plan and run a whole school Lenten Retreat Day. They enlisted the help of the other pupils in Class 6, who were all very keen to be involved. In groups of five they planned six activity sessions: three for Key Stage 1 and three for Key Stage 2, based around the events of Holy Week.
The day began with an assembly, planned and led by some of the older Values Councillors, where they took the rest of the school on a brief trip through the events of Holy Week, and finished with the Walk With Me Lenten prayer. The rest of the school we then sent off in their groups to rotate around the different activities, which involved role play, drama, meditative reflections, prayer, song, art and the use of IT. The children said that they enjoyed the day very much and that it was easier to understand when the older children taught!
Here are a few photos that were taken on the day:
