Ash Wednesday

Today we learnt all about Ash Wednesday

Usually we are in school for this celebration marking the beginning of Lent but this year we were off and it was during half term

We learnt that the ashes are made from last years Palm crosses and that the priest marks the sign of the cross on everyone's head so we remember that Lent is a time of preparation for Jesus' death


We also began to think about our Lenten promises


Miss McGee showed us how to position and proportion the human face. We took our time and looked carefully in the mirror at the shape and colour of the different parts of our face.

We then used charcoal dust to make the sign of the cross on top of our foreheads
