Come and See

Lent and Easter

 

During our Come and See lessons we will be learning about the wonderful top of Lent and Easter. From Ash Wednesday where our children will be given the ashes on their foreheads, to the Ester story, year 4 will be learning all about the ultimate sacrifices Jesus made for us. For Christians the timeo f Lent is a time when we think about the sacrifices people make and the way our life is found in the Scriptures. We will be learning about the importance of asking for forgiveness. We will be using the Lentern calander to help us understand the significance and importance of the days of Lentern as well as the Stations of the Cross.

Lent is part of the Liturgical Year when people unite themselves with Christ in order to grow in self-discipline through the practices of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. We celebrate growth of new life in Christ, in preparation for the feast of Easter.

Scripture: Matthew 7: 1-6 Do not judge, so that you may not be judged. For with the judgement you make you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. Why do you see the speck n your neighbour’s eye, but you do not notice the log in your own.
