We had a really lovely day on Friday when we had our Prayer Day. Thank you to all the parents who contributed and to the Bishop’s Visitor who supported us and left saying what a special place Horton is. The children thought about the meaning of spirituality:
‘an ability to look inward to understand ourselves and outward, having a sense of something beyond ourselves’
They were given the opportunity to think about big questions, ask big questions and to think about the world around us. They thought about what a ‘soul’ is and what makes us who we are. The children particularly enjoyed ‘fizzy forgiveness’ where they thought about something for which they wanted to be forgiven and watched a tablet fizz and disappear. As George in Y6 said: “I felt this big weight leave my shoulders.” They took part in a range of spiritual art activities in the afternoon.
