Year 6 RE Inspire Workshop

18 March 2016

The lives of the Saints teach us to keep Christ close and to walk with Him daily. '

In preparation for their Confirmation, both Year 6 classes participated in an RE Inspire Workshop on Friday 18th March. The children had previously researched and written about the lives of their chosen Confirmation Saint.

The children were very excited and arrived at the workshop with lots of information about their Saints along with signs and symbols associated with them. The children thoroughly enjoyed working with their family member in creating their beautiful stained glass windows.

First, the children were given a picture of their saint in a stained glass window, which they had to carefully trace around and cut out. They then had to repeat the first step to make the front and back of their windows. The children then chose suitable colours of tissue paper to create the illusion of a stained glass window.

Once the design was finished, the children added finishing touches like glitter, gems and sparkles to make their stained glass window even more beautiful. They were all imaginatively created and the finished windows were stunning!

This was a wonderful opportunity for the children and their families to work together as part of their sacramental preparation. Feedback from both pupils and family members showed that this was something that they enjoyed and are eager to do again.
