In addition to the long running popular weekly lunchtime club, in January we were delighted to be able to offer a second club to run as an after school activity, which has been well supported. We’ve had a busy term, with stories, games, song, dance, creative prayer, praise and fun activities for the children to enjoy.
We explored many stores about Bible heroes based on Old Testament heroes. Such as David and Goliath, reflecting on David’s courage, not forgetting David the Psalm writer, looking at many of the Psalms he had written. Ruth, thinking about how we can be part of God’s family too, as Ruth chose to be. And Elijah, a faithful servant of God who was fed by the Ravens during a period of drought.
During the summer term we celebrated Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit. We talked about the gift of the Holy Spirit and the different gifts that have been given to each and every one of us. We had fun trying to speak in different languages as the disciples did at Pentecost. We talked about the Trinity and enjoyed many craft activities, including making a Banner showing the Fruit of the Spirit; love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Finally, as time came close to saying farewell to year six, the children prepared prayers, special Prayer Boxes, and made beautiful Cross Mosaics to pass on as keepsakes.
Special thanks go to all volunteers for their help and support at both lunchtime and after school clubs.
We look forward to meeting once again in the autumn term.
