LO: To know that Lent is a time to be sorrowful.
Remember that a special gift given by God was that of choosing. Have a box of Liquorice Allsorts (or similar that your child likes but with a variety of choices). Which one do we choose first? Talk about why we make choices.
Play a game modelled on “Who wants to be a millionaire?” Children in real life conflict situations, e.g. If you find the classroom in a mess and give choices. “Do you a)? b)? c)?” - Presentation provided below
Use everyday situations to reinforce the idea of choice during Lent. Stop at points each day to raise questions e.g. pencils on floor – do we leave them or pick them up? - Adapt as necessary for home.
Light a purple candle as sign that it is time to reflect on the day and the choices we have made. Explain that it is important to say sorry to each other and to God Our Father for those times when we have made bad choices. Remind children of what a parable is – a story that Jesus told that has a meaning and can teach us something. Read the parable of The Prodigal Son. The bible teaches us that God is always willing to forgive when we say sorry. Discuss the importance of both saying sorry and being able to forgive others. Write a prayer to say sorry for a bad choice that has been made.
