Lent begins this coming Wednesday, Ash Wednesday, preceeded by Shrove Tuesday. Please find a selection of resources to share with your children for Lent below, starting with Ash Wednesday.
Monday 22nd February to Sunday 7th March is Fairtrade Fortnight. Lent is a good opportunity for us to learn more about how we can support poorer communities in the world to be paid a fair price for their goods, enabling families to meet their everyday needs. This year the focus is on climate change and the challenges this brings. The attached home learning grid has lots of ideas to help you find out more, with fun activities to try at home.
