Y5 at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in High Green recently experienced a fun and spiritual day with Hallam Youth Ministry’s InReality team. The aim was to think about the season of Lent and how we can prepare ourselves for Easter.

St Mary Lent Day 1 s

The day started in prayer and song and then the children played a board game making their way through the ‘desert’ completing challenges on the three themes of Lent.

The children split into small groups and reflected upon and interpreted different Stations of the Cross – complete with dramatic role play and costumes!

The afternoon saw the children creating and leading their own liturgy for the whole school.

It was a great day and all the children benefited from the experience.
