Year 6 RE Inspire Workshop: Stained Glass Windows

9 February 2011


'Such are the people who seek your face O Lord' Psalm 24:6


Year 6 pupils were joined by members of their families for this workshop. The aim of the morning was for pupils and their families to work together to produce a stained glass window depicting their Confirmation Saint. Having previously researched the lives of their Confirmation Saints, the children arrived at the workshop with lots of relevant information about their Saints and signs and symbols associated with them.

The task of creating a stained glass window to depict their Saint was challenging, we were amazed at the artistic flair displayed by our children and parents. The end results were magnificent.

This was a wonderful opportunity for children and their families to work together as part of their sacramental preparation. Feedback from both pupils and families shows that this was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

"The workshop was very interesting and a lot of fun for both of us."

"We enjoyed working and laughing together and having a lovely stained glass window at the end."
