Reception RE Workshop

25 June 2010

The focus of the RE Workshop was Prayer. During the introduction a group of Year Six pupils from the Prayer Group spoke to the children and visitors about the importance of prayer and the different forms of prayer. They spoke about all the prayers the children have been learning about in Reception from the Hail Mary, Our Father, Thanksgiving Prayers, Sorry Prayers, Sign of the Cross, Morning Prayers, Grace before Meals etc.

The children were then shown how to make Prayer puppets which focused on Thanksgiving and Sorry Prayers. Everyone enjoyed making their Prayer puppets to take home and share together. At the end of the workshop a Prayer Service was held where the children were given the opportunity to share their thanksgiving prayer using their puppets.
