On Thursday 10th May – (Ascension day) – KS1 Faith Team visited St. Peter’s C of E Infant School in Oxted. The focus of the visit was to do some shared learning around the theme of Ascension day. The children firstly read the story of Jesus’ ascension into Heaven and then thought about the questions they would have liked to have asked Jesus. Questions included: “Why did you have to leave us?” and “Will we ever see you again?”
The children then created ‘ascension rockets’ out of plastic bottle and craft materials. Inside the rockets, the children wrote prayers to God. The day finished with making Ascension spiral prayers and reading them together in St. Peter’s prayer garden. The children were made to feel very welcome by St. Peter’s Faith Team and enjoyed working together with them to create prayers and works of art.
Well done to the Faith Team who were a credit to the school and thank you as ever to the parents who helped us with transport on the day!
