Try something at home…  Suggestions for home activities


Explore the Diocesan website, looking at the number of churches, and finding out about our bishop, Bishop Tom.

Read Bible stories together or encourage older children to read a child’s Bible.


Suggestions for home activities:

Look through the family photograph album to help the children remember important events and special people in their lives.

Discuss how we come together for special celebrations.


Suggestions for home activities 

 As a family talk about how you are going to practice self-control and self-giving for the rest of the season of Lent. You may decide to give up biscuits or cakes and donate the money to a charity.

If you have an older child provide him/her with an opportunity to take part in The Stations of the Cross.   Ask your child/ren how the school is focusing on Lent and self-giving.
