On Friday 13th May, we celebrated Pentecost, as it was Pentecost Sunday on the 15th. We learnt the story of Pentecost and took part in lots of reflective actitivities and other workshops based on this.
In the morning, we went up to Church in our classes and worked our way around three reflective prayer stations, thinking about the different roles of the Holy Spirit: how he helps us, how he gives us peace, and how we enables us to spread the word of God. We also retold the story of Pentecost, using comic strips.
In the afternoon, we split into our houses, and completed a carousel of activities: cake decorating (as Pentecost is the Church's birthday) making windmills (to represent the the strong wind at Pentecost) origami doves (as the holy spirit appeared as a dove at the baptism of Jesus, and it is a symbol of peace) and cheese rolling (an Anglican tradition from Pentecost Sunday)
We had great fun and learnt a lot!
