St Catherine's Catholic Primary School, Littlehampton - Spirituality Week 2015

St Catherine’s Catholic Primary School, Littlehampton

Spirituality Week 2015


Following an inspirational INSET training for our Worthing Deanery led by Lat Blaylock, we decided to incorporate many of his creative ideas into our school ‘Spirituality Week’ which took place between 13th – 17th April.

We focused the pupils learning on the events from the time of the arrest of Jesus to his Resurrection and the events on the Road to Emmaus. Each day began with an Assembly and the pupils spent each afternoon focusing on a range of tasks related to the spirituality theme.

Among the activities that took place were the building of a model Church with all its features, small model dioramas thinking about the scenery and characters, discussions on how we can see Jesus through others, drama work, mood crosses, 3D models of new life, Kenning poems about ‘Who is God?’ and Responsibility Pie Charts for the Crucifixion of Jesus.

On the Friday, our Parish Priest, Fr Dominic, visited and led a Resurrection Liturgy for children, parents and visitors.

Throughout the week there was a real buzz and engagement throughout the school culminating with each class creating a display in the Hall to celebrate and share our learning.
