On Ash Wednesday, the children in KS1 and KS2 participated in a special service. KS2 went into the hall with Father David. We said prayers to God, sung hymns and then we had ashes placed on our heads in the sign of the cross. KS1 also had a service where we said a prayer and Father David placed the ashes on our foreheads.
This is the start of the season of Lent. Lent is a time when you should start to fast, give, prepare and pray. Lent is to remember who you are and to think of others.
