Here’s some of the ways that we have at Hartlip School contributed to the Lenten Challenge….

Lent continues as we now reach the end of term 4 and enjoy a holiday. 

We concluded out term by engaging in Active Lent. We based our activities on Pretzel Prayer. 

Did you know….

There is a story that a monk, way back in the 7th century, invented pretzels as a treat for children? In those days people prayed by folding their arms across their chests with their hands touching the opposite shoulder. In doing this you make a shape like a pretzel! Pretzels were made to remind people to pray… especially in Lent.… In those days the snacks were called bracellae which means ‘little arms’ in Latin. During Lent people try to do things that bring them closer to God. One of the things we can do is try to pray more often. 

During the day, we engaged in different activities centred on the pretzel. We made our own pretzels to take home to start our Easter break. We made our pretzels in to flowers to make our own prayer garden, remembering that Jesus went in to the garden of Gethsemane to pray. We engaged in pretzel yoga and meditated on the Tree of Gratitude. We experimented using a finger labyrinth to pray. 

Our term concluded with Church Worship. Together with all members of the school community we shared our active Lent learning. We received a pretzel as we went in to church. We shared our pretzel prayer garden and talked about when things get tough in our life. We each placed a leaf on the gratitude tree. We concluded by using our finger labyrinths in prayer. 

And now we wish everyone a very Happy Easter when it comes and look forward to seeing everyone at the start of term 5.

We have launched a new initiative and that is a Community Lunch. This takes place on the First Wednesday of every month during school term time. It is our way of welcoming and caring for our community. Those in attendance receive a roast dinner and are well looked after and entertained by our children. The cost is £3 and we ask that bookings are made in advance, at least a week prior to the event by making contact with us when you may like to make a specific menu choice. Please do join us. Bookings can be made by email, telephone or calling in to the school office. We look forward to welcoming you.

There will be a Messy Easter Church on SATURDAY 20th April: 10.15am-11.45am in Hartlip Church. Come along and explore together as a family and with friends the meaning of Easter through activity and refreshment.

Our school seeks to be a happy place, with a welcoming atmosphere, built on mutual respect with confidence and understanding between parents, children, staff and governors.
