In Year 2, we know that God is present in every beginning. Our learning about creation is important as it concerns the foundations of human and Christian life, making explicit the response of the Christian faith to the basic questions; Where do I come from? Where are we going? What is our origin? Where does everything that exists come from and where is it going?
The children planned and carried out their own class liturgy deciding how to gather, listen, respond and go forth. We then built up our focal point with our favourite prayer resources.
We Gathered: With quiet, reflective thought
We Listened: The creation story
We Responded: Sharing stories of times when we have noticed God’s wonder in the world around us
We Went Forth: Greeting each other with promises to be more thankful for our gifts
