Janet Marshall came in to speak to the children about lent in their assembly. She was accompanied by her naughty assistant Patch, and the children really enjoyed his sneaky appearance.
Janet had two helpers to show what happens on Ash Wednesday, whereby burnt palm leave ashes are drawn into a cross on people’s heads in church. Isaac said that it was “very interesting and exciting”.
Janet also showed some different objects that are important to Christians over lent. For example a book of prayers, the bible, Easter eggs and sweets; both of which they are not allowed to eat during the 40 days of lent.
