Year 5 RE Inspire Workshop: Creation Gardens

19 September 2012

"Then the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the East. He made all kinds of beautiful trees grow there and produce good fruit."
Genesis 2:9

Year 5 pupils were joined by members of their families for this RE Inspire workshop. The aim of the morning was for pupils and their families to work together to produce their own interpretation of God's wonderful creation, The Garden of Eden.

Although the task of creating their own garden may have seemed daunting to some, we were amazed at the imagination and creativity shown by both pupils and parents.

This was a wonderful opportunity for children and their families to work together and the feedback from both pupils and families shows that this was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Following the workshop the pupils had the opportunity to have their gardens blessed at the Harvest Mass the following week.
