St Lawrence Club, autumn term 2015

This weekly lunchtime club is held at St Lawrence Lindridge C of E Primary School. We’ve had a busy, fun term, celebrating many festivals with song, dance, creative prayer, craft activities and games.

As part of harvest preparations we explored our senses, talking about our favourite sights, sounds, smells, tastes, thinking of all the things we love, and what we would like to give thanks for. The children made lovely ‘plates of thanks’. We enjoyed planting our own crop of cress and mustard to watch grow from tiny seeds. Thanks once again to Betty Andersson who joined us to prepare our traditional harvest loaf, complete with a few harvest mice and cats!

We celebrated the feast of All Saints, remembering those outstanding Christians who have led heroic lives and set an example for all Christians, focusing on the life of St Lawrence.

For Remembrance the children made wonderful Poppy Wreaths and Poppy Crosses, as we thought about all the soldiers from all wars, their families, friends and all those affected by war, and wrote our own prayers.

As we approached the season of Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, we had fun making Mosaic Rangoli Patterns.

At the end of the church year, before the start of Advent, we focussed on Christ the King season, and the children enjoyed making their own crowns to decorate with Jewels as we remembered Jesus, a different kind of King.

Christmas celebrations got under way with Christingle, we talked about the symbolic meaning of each part of the Christingle, and lit the candle as we enjoyed festive song, Christmas crafts and games.

We look forward to meeting again in the spring term.
