This week, Year 2 have been enjoying our Prayer Garden. We gathered together with the sign of the cross and had a heartfelt discussion. Today’s topic was ‘Same & Different’, and we have been talking about the similarities and differences between all of the children in our class.
‘I am different from Logan because he is English and I am Chinese.’
‘I am different from Jack because he is taller than me.’
‘I am the same as Sophia because we like the same things.’
We also spoke about how important it is to recognise our differences, and how special they make each of us. Being different is fantastic, and it keeps life exciting!
‘If we were all the same, it would be boring because we couldn’t race each other anymore.’
This was a very thoughtful conversation and it allowed us to recognise the wonderful in each and every member of our class.
